CINCINNATI (AP) – Todd Frazier and Jay Bruce hit two-run homers on Sunday, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 5-2 victory and another successful series against the Miami Marlins.

The Reds took two of the three games, with the teams opening the series by trading shutouts. The Reds have won 11 of their last 15 games against the Marlins.

Frazier hit a two-run homer in the first inning off David Phelps (4-4), his fifth homer in the last five games. Frazier has 23 homers, two behind Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton for the major league.

Bruce’s 11th homer in the sixth inning snapped a 2-2 tie and extended his hitting streak to five games. He’s 10 for 20 during the streak with a pair of homers.

Michael Lorenzen (3-2) went seven innings and singled home a run as he won back-to-back starts for the first time in his career. Aroldis Chapman escaped a bases-loaded, none-out threat in the ninth, getting three strikeouts for his 15th save in 16 chances.
