CINCINNATI (AP) — Chris Johnson drove in two runs with a home run and a double, former reliever David Phelps pitched into the sixth inning in his third start of the season and the Miami Marlins opened their four-game series in Cincinnati with a 6-3 victory Monday night.

Marcell Ozuna also homered and Dee Gordon beat Joey Votto's high toss to pitcher Blake Wood covering first base for a bases-loaded, two-run infield single for Miami, which has won two straight games after a three-game losing streak. Both wins have come since Gioncarlo Stanton was lost on Saturday for what is expected to be at least six weeks with a groin injury.

The Marlins went into Monday one-half game behind St. Louis for the National League's second wild-card slot.

Phelps (6-6) struck out a season-high eight — one short of matching his career high — while allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings. He gave up four hits with one walk.
