Infante in Sunday's lineup; Marlins look to win first series in Cincinnati since 2005

CINCINNATI -- Good news. It looks like it was just a cramp.

Marlins second baseman Omar Infante, who left Saturday's game with what was determined to be a right hamstring cramp, is back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Reds.

Center fielder Chris Coghlan, battling a strained right shoulder, is also back in the lineup. Manager Edwin Rodriguez said Coghlan's playing status for day games after night games would probably be questionable the rest of the season and determined by how he felt.

The Marlins send Ricky Nolasco to the mound in hopes of winning their seventh series of the season. Nolasco has won six of his last seven decisions following a loss.

The Fish haven't won a series in the Queen City since 2005 and a 4-15 here since. The only series they've lost to date was the opener against the Mets. They split with the Phillies.
