Last updated on Wednesday, August 24, 2011

(MIAMI, FL) - The Cincinnati Reds scored four runs in the top of the ninth to record a come-from-behind 8-6 victory over the Florida Marlins.

Rookies Dave Sappelt and Yonder Alonso delivered the key hits in the ninth.

Sappelt tied the game with a two-run double off Florida reliever Leo Nunez.

Alonso followed two batters later with another two-run double to give Cincinnati the lead for good.

Alonso also hit a solo home run while Jay Bruce hit a two-run shot for the Reds.

Emilio Bonafacio hit a two-run homer for Florida.

The Reds and Marlins will play a doubleheader today.

Thursday night's scheduled game was moved to Wednesday due to the possibility of Hurricane Irene hitting South Florida.
