Marlins 10, Reds 2

MIAMI — Jorge Cantu had a hit and RBI for the 10th consecutive game, extending his major-league record to start the season, as the Marlins beat the Reds 10-2 on Thursday.

Cantu, the former Rays third baseman, doubled in the fifth to score Hanley Ramirez from second.

Ramirez had moved to second one pitch earlier on a wild pitch by Aaron Harang.

Afterward, the crowd cheered Cantu, who waved from second while umpire Jeff Kellogg threw the ball toward the Marlins' dugout for safekeeping.

The season-opening record dates to 1920, when RBIs became an official statistic. Entering this season, the record had been eight by George Kelly of the 1921 Giants.

The record for any time during the season is 17, set by the Cubs' Ray Grimes in 1922.

Including last season, Cantu has 14 consecutive games with a hit and an RBI. That's the longest streak since Mike Piazza's 15 from June 14 to July 2, 2000.
