CINCINNATI -- Reds lefty reliever Sean Marshall finally got to make his 2013 debut Sunday, and he looked good. Marshall, who pitched the seventh inning during a 6-3 win over the Nationals, retired the side in order. His third out came by striking out Bryce Harper on a 75-mph curveball.

Marshall had not pitched in a big league game since March 22 during Spring Training because of fatigue in his left shoulder.

"That was great," Reds manager Dusty Baker said of Sunday's effort. "He wasn't available yesterday. He threw 30 pitches in the 'pen as a test run. He looked good today."
