CINCINNATI -

Brandon Phillps drove in the go-ahead run for the second straight day, Joey Votto homered and collected three hits, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Miami Marlins 10-6 Sunday for their sixth win in seven games.

Todd Frazier hit a three-run double in an eight-run seventh inning for the Reds, who took three of four from the Marlins and improved to a major league-best 10-3 at home.

After trading most of their best players in an offseason payroll purge, the Marlins have the worst record in the big leagues at 4-15 -- the poorest record after 19 games in team history.

With the score 2-2, Shin-Soo Choo drew Cincinnati's fifth walk off Alex Sanabia (2-2), who also hit Chin with a pair of pitches. Singles by Xavier Paul and Votto loaded the bases, and Phillips had an RBI single against Jon Rauch.

Phillips had a game-ending sacrifice fly in the 13th inning Saturday.
