Marlins’ Efforts are all for not in 10th inning loss

Miami Marlins’pitcher Steve Cishek coughed it up Thursday in a 5-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

Just after the Marlins rallied in the ninth to tie the score and send it into extra innings, the Reds erupted for three runs off Cishek, whose record fell to 1-4 with the loss in the 10th.

“He’s not getting consistent reps,” said manager Mike Redmond of Cishek, who has had few opportunities to pitch to his role, with a lead in the ninth. “He’s not getting to pitch that much. Tonight we got him in there because he needed to pitch.”

If fans were planning to boo Bell upon his arrival Friday with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Cishek provided them with reason to work their vocal chords into shape with Thursday’s rough outing.
