Catcher Ryan Jorgensen's first career grand
slam helped 29-year-old Tom Shearn win his long-awaited major
league debut today as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Florida Marlins
9-3.

It's the sixth straight win for the Reds. Since interim manager
Pete Mackanin took over on July 3, Cincinnati has the NL's best
record at 29-19.

Shearn limited the Marlins to four hits and a pair of walks in
seven innings.
Dan Uggla hit a three-run homer in the third inning to supply
Florida's only offensive punch of the day.

Cincinnati's Jorgensen hit his grand slam in the first inning
off rookie right-hander Daniel Barone to help Shearn settle in.
Brandon Phillips and Edwin Encarnacion also homered for the Reds.
