(Newser) – The Cincinnati Reds blew a six-run lead in the ninth, but Paul Janish singled home the tiebreaking run in only his second big-league at-bat for a 7-6, 10-inning victory over the Florida Marlins on Wednesday night. Renyel Pinto (1-2) walked two with two outs before Janish, who arrived from the minors earlier in the day, singled to right field to end it, raising his right fist in triumph.

Jared Burton (2-1) pitched a perfect 10th for the win. The Reds matched their season high with their third straight win, all against a Marlins team that came to town on a seven-game winning streak.
