KEY GAME INFORMATION
CINCINNATI: HITTING: 2B BRANDON PHILLIPS sparked the Reds offense after moving to the top of the order. But his free-swinging makes him a bad fit there. SS ZACK COZART played in only 11 games for the Reds before wrecking his non-throwing elbow, but it was still enough to convince the team they'd seen enough of PAUL JANISH in the starting role. 1B JOEY VOTTO keeps punishing pitchers. OF JAY BRUCE is in his gawky, teenage phase, but he's already emerged as a major power source. OF DREW STUBBS must cut down on his MLB-leading 206 strikeouts. He's out of the leadoff spot now, but those whiffs don't play well anywhere in the lineup. OF CHRIS HEISEY should get the starting nod in left now that Yonder Alonso is out of the picture. 3B SCOTT ROLEN is a permanent health question mark. His backup, JUAN FRANCISCO, swings for the fences. C DEVIN MESORACO is the most hyped catching prospect since Matt Wieters. RYAN HANIGAN will split squatting responsibilities with him.
STARTING PITCHING: Considered a source of strength entering the 2011 campaign, the Reds rotation directly caused their undoing. The first step toward a remedy was trading for MAT LATOS, who began 2011 slow and got stronger as the year went on. The 24-year-old threw at least six innings with 5+ K in 16 of his final 17 starts (2.94 ERA). But that was in a much more pitcher-friendly environment. He has a decent career road ERA (3.57), and Cincy will surely give him much better run support than he received in San Diego. Last year's pitching problems began with BRONSON ARROYO, who gave up more home runs in a season than any pitcher in this millennium. He allowed more HR (46) than walks (45). JOHNNY CUETO was the one big bright spot; he hasn't maintained the strikeout rates he flashed early in his career, but he's All-Star caliber. HOMER BAILEY was a disappointment, going 9-7 with a 4.43 ERA. MIKE LEAKE actually pitched pretty well after he got his first taste of the minors to get his mechanics worked out.
RELIEF PITCHING: With Francisco Cordero flying the coop, and newcomer RYAN MADSON lost for the season with Tommy John Surgery, Cincinnati will use a closer-by-committee approach. The Reds gave up three players, including starter Travis Wood, to acquire SEAN MARSHALL, who should fit in nicely as a set-up man who's tough on both right-and left-handed batters. AROLDIS CHAPMAN is listed as the main set-up man for Marshall, but he missed out on winter ball and could be too raw to trust in the ninth inning. LOGAN ONDRUSEK is also capable of being a decent closer, with a big fastball.
MIAMI: HITTING: Ozzie Guillen takes over as manager for the newly named Miami Marlins, who will open their new retractable-roof Marlins Ballpark in 2012. Indoor games could generate more offense, but the fences are pretty deep (340' to left, 384' to 392' power alleys, 416' center and 335' right). New SS JOSE REYES led the NL with a .337 average and posted a career-best .384 OBP. Malcontent HANLEY RAMIREZ will reluctantly move to 3B, but hopefully he will play harder under Guillen than he has under the previous two skippers. OF GIANCARLO STANTON hit 34 HR last year and will drive in 100 if Ramirez stays healthy. OF LOGAN MORRISON cranked 23 bombs, but his batting average dipped to .247 with this new-found power. 1B GABY SANCHEZ fizzled after August 1 (.211 BA), but still had 19 HR and 78 RBI. OF EMILIO BONIFACIO swiped 40 bases and led the team with a .296 average, but he'll move down the order because of Reyes. C JOHN BUCK and 2B OMAR INFANTE's jobs are secure, but 22-year-old prospect MATT DOMINGUEZ might start 2012 in Triple-A instead of sitting and watching Ramirez and Sanchez at the corner infield spots.
STARTING PITCHING: JOSH JOHNSON is dominant when healthy, but he's made only 88 starts over the past five seasons. His shoulder feels great after surgery last year, and he expects to take the mound on Opening Day. MARK BUEHRLE followed his former manager and signed a 4-year, $58M deal with Miami. The 33-year-old lefty was 13-9 with a 3.59 ERA last year, his 11th straight season of 200+ IP and 10+ wins. RICKY NOLASCO once again had 10 wins and a strong K-to-BB ratio (3.4), but also sported an 8.18 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in his final eight starts. ANIBAL SANCHEZ posted a second straight productive season, fanning 202 batters in 196.1 innings. He did give up twice as many HR (20) as he did in 2010 though. CARLOS ZAMBRANO will begin 2012 in the rotation, but where he ends up is anybody's guess. If Guillen can motivate him, Zambrano has plenty of innings left in his 30-year-old arm.
RELIEF PITCHING: The signing of HEATH BELL to a three-year deal gives the Marlins a reliable long-term closer for the first time since Robb Nen in the mid-'90s. Bell's numbers could suffer a bit with the move to a smaller ballpark and an alarming drop in strikeout rate (11.1 in 2010 to 7.3 in 2011), but he still throws 94 mph. STEVE CISHEK will be the main set-up man for Bell and could see a handful of saves, converting all three opportunities last year and fanning 55 batters in 54.2 innings. MIKE DUNN is the lefty set-up man in this bullpen. He has great stuff (100 K in 86 career innings), but remains extremely wild (53 walks in those 86 IP).

*Reds-Marlins Preview* ======================

By TAYLOR BECHTOLD STATS Writer

Cincinnati (23-16) at Miami (11-28), 7:10 p.m. EDT

While the Cincinnati Reds usually find a way to win with Mat Latos on the mound, the Miami Marlins are having trouble scoring regardless of what pitcher they're facing.

The undefeated Latos will try to win a fifth consecutive start and lead the Reds to their season-best sixth straight victory Thursday against a Miami team that has the worst offense in the majors.

Following a 4-0 victory Wednesday, Cincinnati (24-16) goes for a three-game sweep at Marlins Park in the opening series of a nine-game road trip.

Leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo matched a career high with four hits, including two homers, and four Reds pitchers combined to hand Miami (11-29) its league-worst seventh shutout.

"This ballpark is big," said Choo, who has a team-leading nine home runs. "Some balls fly, some don't. I'm not thinking about hitting homers. I'm just swinging hard."

While Choo has two multihomer efforts in his last seven games, Miami has gone deep three times over its last eight while getting held to 12 runs.

Cincinnati is 5-1 in this season series and has won 13 of the last 15 regular-season starts made by Latos (4-0, 3.04 ERA). He's 8-0 in that span.

The right-hander allowed 14 runs through seven outings this year before yielding half that many Sunday, but Latos still won his fourth straight start. He went six innings in a 13-7 victory over Milwaukee, giving up two home runs after not surrendering one in his previous four outings.

"I didn't allow myself to have my best stuff," Latos said. "I was aggravated with myself. It was a poor performance."

The Reds have given their starters 190 runs of support - among the most in the majors - and they've provided Latos a team-high 33.

Latos may not need much help this time against an NL-worst Miami team that's last in the majors in runs (110), batting average (.224) and homers (22).

Justin Ruggiano is 4 for 27 with 10 strikeouts over his last eight games, Placido Polanco is 3 for 22 in his last six and Greg Dobbs was in a 1-for-23 slump before going 2 for 4 on Wednesday.

"We definitely have some guys that are struggling," said manager Mike Redmond, whose club has lost four in a row and seven of eight. "We need guys to step up. We know we're capable of more offense than this."

Although he's 0-2 with a 7.45 ERA in four career starts in Miami, Latos allowed one run and struck out 10 over seven innings before leaving without a decision in a 2-1 home loss to the Marlins on April 19.

Miami counters with right-hander Jose Fernandez (2-2, 3.65), who goes after his third straight victory following a rough three-start stretch in which he went 0-2 with a 7.62 ERA.

The rookie has struck out 16 over his last two outings, yielding three runs in 13 innings.

"I keep learning every start," said Fernandez, who has two of the team's three wins this month.

Fernandez hopes to learn from his last outing against the Reds on April 18, when he surrendered five runs over four innings in an 11-1 road loss.

Choo and Zack Cozart each went 2 for 3 against Fernandez in that victory.

Joey Votto, 2 for 4 in Wednesday's win, is 12 for 19 with two homers and five RBIs over his last four games against Miami.
