CINCINNATI (AP) - Shin-Soo Choo singled, doubled and scored twice, helping left-hander Tony Cingrani get a victory in his first major league start, and the Cincinnati Reds won their fourth in a row, beating the Miami Marlins 11-1 on Thursday night.

The Reds' winning streak has featured stingy starting pitching. The 23-year-old Cingrani needed a lot of pitches, but kept up the trend. The left-hander gave up five hits, including Justin Ruggiano's solo homer, in five innings, striking out eight and throwing 102 pitches.

He got the better of a matchup of two up-and-coming starters. Right-hander Jose Fernandez (0-1) lasted only four innings, giving up five runs and seven hits while taking his first big league loss.

Miami fell to 3-13, worst in the majors.
