CINCINNATI -- Brandon Phillips made the Miami Marlins pay for using some good strategy. Right-hander Nick Wittgen walking left-handed Joey Votto with two outs and the tying run on second base made perfect sense.Until Phillips drove in two runs with his second double of the game and the Cincinnati Reds rallied for a 3-2 victory Wednesday night.Billy Hamilton was on second base and Votto on first after being walked intentionally in the seventh inning. Phillips lined a fastball to the gap in right-center field to drive in the go-ahead runs.I was looking for a pitch out over the plate and I finally got it, said Phillips, who missed the previous two games with contusions on both knees.Wittgen (3-2) had no problem with manager Don Mattinglys decision.We had a righty against a lefty, and you dont want that, Wittgen said. I didnt make my pitches. I got behind, and he knew a 3-1 fastball was coming. He got good wood on it.Josh Smith (2-1) set up the comeback with two innings of scoreless relief after the Marlins had taken a 2-1 lead on third baseman Eugenio Suarezs two-out error of Marcell Ozunas routine grounder in the fifth. That allowed Christian Yelich to score from second.Blake Wood pitched a perfect eighth and Tony Cingrani retired the side in the ninth for his 15th save in 20 chances and second in two games.The loss cost Miami a chance to move into a three-way tie with San Francisco and Pittsburgh behind St. Louis in the National League wild-card standings.It doesnt always come easy, Reds manager Bryan Price said. (The Marlins) battle. Theyre in the race for a reason.Andrew Cashner was in line for his first win for Miami in his fourth start since being acquired from San Diego on July 29. Cashner, who was 0-2 with a 6.61 ERA with the Marlins, allowed five hits and one run with four walks and one strikeout.Homer Bailey, making his fourth start overall and first at home since coming back from Tommy John surgery in May 2015, left trailing 2-1 after five innings. He gave up all six Miami hits and one earned run -- Ozunas 21st homer leading off the fourth -- with one walk and six strikeouts in his first start in Cincinnati since Aug. 7, 2014.Phillips and Suarez tied the score with consecutive doubles in the fourth.LONG TIMEOzunas home run was the first allowed by Bailey since the Brewers Aramis Ramirez took him deep on April 23, 2015, at Milwaukee. Bailey underwent Tommy John surgery the next month.SERIES-OUSMiamis Martin Prado singled in his first at-bat to improve to 6 for 10 in the series. Phillips had to make a leaping catch of Prados hard line drive in his next at-bat. Prado finished 6 for 12 in the series.HOTTOVotto singled in the fifth to extend his hitting streak to nine games (16 for 36, .485).NOTTOTucker Barnhart went 0 for 3 with a walk to see his hitting streak stopped at a career-high 12 games.TRAINING ROOMMarlins: Miami will be careful not to overuse 42-year-old RF Ichiro Suzuki with Giancarlo Stanton on the DL. Its important that we dont run him into the ground, Mattingly said. I dont know if he wants to hear that or not. Hes probably in the best shape of anybody on the team.Reds: LF Adam Duvalls left foot is immobilized in a walking boot to help him heal after fouling a ball off it on Monday. Price expects Duvall to be out a couple of days.UP NEXTMarlins: RHP Jose Fernandez (12-6), Thursdays scheduled Miami starter in the finale of the four-game series in Cincinnati, didnt allow an earned run or a walk and finished with eight strikeouts in seven innings against Cincinnati on July 8.Reds: Cincinnatis projected Thursday starter, RHP Dan Straily (8-6), is 4-0 with a 2.13 ERA in six starts since the All-Star break.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Olympic leaders approved the addition of five sports to the program of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics on Wednesday, including the return of baseball-softball and the introduction of youth-oriented events such as skateboarding and surfing.International Olympic Committee members voted unanimously to accept the five-sport package, which also includes karate and sport climbing.The five were put forward for inclusion last year by Tokyo organizers, taking advantage of new IOC rules that allow host cities to propose the inclusion of additional sports for their own games. Wednesdays approval was for the Tokyo Games only.The new sports will add 18 events and 474 athletes to the program. The Tokyo Games will now feature 33 sports and about 11,000 athletes, compared with the usual number of 28 sports and 10,500 athletes.While baseball and softball, both highly popular in Japan, will be returning after a 12-year absence, the other sports will be making their Olympic debuts.The IOC called it the most comprehensive evolution of the Olympic program in modern history.Taken together, the five sports are an innovative combination of established and emerging, youth-focused events that are popular in Japan and will add to the legacy of the Tokyo Games, IOC President Thomas Bach said.Baseball and softball have been off the Olympic program since the 2008 Beijing Games. The two were rejected in separate bids to return for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, so they combined forces to put forward a single bid for inclusion in Tokyo.Mens baseball was a full part of the Olympic program from 1992 to 2008, with womens softball joining in 1996. The IOC voted them both out in 2005.Baseball will have a six-team tournament, short of the eight-team format sought by officials from the sports international federation. Womens softball will also have six teams. The games will be played at a shared venue In Yokohama.Todays historic decision by the IOC is a home run for the Olympics, our sport and the Tokyo 2020 Games, said Riccardo Fraccari, president of the World Baseball Softball Confederation. It will be the most covered and most exciting international baseball/softball tournaments in history, which will help build our case to be featured in future Olympic Games, as well.Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred also welcomed the IOC vote.Baseball and softball are global sports that belong in the Olympics, he said, adding that their approval will allow fans throughout the world to again enjoy baseball and softball on the Olympic stage.Craig Cress, executive director of USA Softball, said many young players had suffered after the sport was removed from the games.Their hearts were broken that they werent allowed to participate for their country at the Olympics in the sport that they had a passion for, he said. Now, thats back. In 2020, its our job as ambassadors of the sport to put on a great show in Tokyo.Before the vote, several IOC members questioned whether baseball would have the worlds top players at the games.dddddddddddd While pro leagues in Japan and some other countries have agreed to shut down their seasons to send their players to the Olympics, MLB has declined to do so.Franco Carraro, who chairs the IOCs program commission, said he hopes the international federation can still reach an agreement with MLB, in line with the deals with the NBA and NHL that brought pro basketball and ice hockey players into the Olympics.If not, Carraro said, it will be difficult for baseball to be included in the future beyond the Tokyo Games.Fraccari said talks with MLB are very open and going in a very good way.Our goal is not to appear one time but to be permanently in the program, he said. The goal is to have the best players possible.Skateboarding will have street and park events and feature 80 athletes -- 40 men and 40 women. In climbing, 40 competitors will take part in the disciplines of speed, bouldering and lead (also known as sport). Karate will have 80 athletes competing in mens and womens Kumite and Kata events, and surfing will have two shortboard events for 40 competitors.The surfing competition will be held on natural waves at a beach location in Chiba prefecture.Our Olympic dream has now become a reality, International Surfing Association president Fernando Aguerre said. This is a game-changing moment for surfing. With its unique and modern blend of sport performance, style and youth culture, surfing will help deliver something special to the games.Skateboarding and sports climbing events will be held in temporary venues in urban settings in Tokyo, and karate will be contested at the Nippon Budokan in the capital.Organizers say they hope skateboarding will catch on with worldwide viewers as halfpipe in snowboarding did in the Winter Olympics.Ive always believed that if skateboarding was properly protected and supported, its appearance on the Olympic stage could change the world, International Skateboarding Federation president Gary Ream said.Skateboardings approval came despite tensions between rival federations.For the Olympics, a special Tokyo 2020 skateboarding commission was formed to run the sport. It is a collaboration between the International Roller Sports Federation (FIRS) and the ISF.A lawsuit was filed last week in California by the World Skateboarding Federation (WSF). It alleged the ISF abruptly canceled scheduled drug testing at an event last year because of fears that several riders would test positive.The lawsuit also alleged that Ream struck up a friendly relationship with Christophe Dubi, the IOC Olympic Games executive director, and provided Dubis son with free training at a skateboarding camp he owned.Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.?
