C.J. Cron hit two home runs to help the Los Angeles Angels beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 on Tuesday night. Mike Trout went 3 for 4 with two doubles and scored on Cron’s home run in the first inning and on Andrelton Simmons’ bloop single in the eighth. Jered Weaver limited the Reds to two earned runs and eight hits, walked none and struck out five. Weaver pitched into the seventh inning for the first time since July 17, but ran into trouble after getting the first out. Eugenio Suarez hit a two-run homer to make it 3-2 and Jose Peraza hit a line drive single to right field. Mike Morin relieved and retired the next two batters to strand Peraza. [more...]

Mike Trout and Albert Pujols each hit one of the Angels’ five home runs, and Los Angeles beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-2 on Monday night. Trout went 3 for 4 with two RBIs and two runs, joining Alex Rodriguez as one of two players to score 100 runs five times before his age-25 season. Pujols hit his 586th homer, tying Frank Robinson for ninth on the career list. Kole Calhoun was a triple short of the cycle, and C.J. Cron homered among his three hits for the Angels. Matt Shoemaker allowed two runs and seven hits over seven innings. After giving up a two-run homer to Joey Votto in the first, Shoemaker settled in to win his third straight decision. Dan Straily allowed seven runs in 2 2/3 innings. [more...]

Jay Bruce continued to stay red hot at the plate after hitting a homerun to deep right field to break a 1-1 tie in the seventh inning to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1. Starter Dan Strailey was sensational for Cincinnati pitching 7 and 2/3 innings, allowing just three hits and 1 earned run with five strikeouts. Tony Cingrani tossed a perfect ninth for the save. Brandon Philips extended his hitting streak to 15 games after going 1-4 at the plate for the Reds, who have won four consecutive series since the all star break.  Cincinnati is off today before traveling to Petco Park in San Diego to face the Padres on Friday.

Matt Cain hit a three-run homer during his first win in more than two months, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-7 on Tuedsday night. Brandon Crawford had three hits and two RBIs, and Buster Posey and Denard Span added two hits apiece for the Giants. San Francisco won for only the second time since the All-Star break. It had been longer than that for Cain. The former Giants ace failed to make it past the fourth inning in his three previous starts and wasn’t much better against the Reds. He retired nine of his first 10 batters but quickly wore down and left with one out in the sixth after giving up the first of two homers by Adam Duvall. [more...]

Jay Bruce hit a pair of two-run homers to help Anthony DeSclafani remain unbeaten, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5 on Monday night. Eugenio Suarez also homered and Joey Votto doubled and scored twice for the Reds, who began their road trip with a win following a 6-3 homestand. Bruce homered for the third consecutive game as part of a four-run fourth inning. He added his second of the night in the sixth to put the Reds up 6-5. It was the third multihomer game this season for the Cincinnati slugger and 20th of his career. DeSclafani pitched in and out of trouble and gave up two home runs but continued his strong run since missing the first two months of the season with a strained left oblique. [more...]

The Cincinnati Reds return to the baseball diamond tonight after having Thursday off when they welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks to Great American Ball Park. Joey Votto continued his hot recent pace with a two-run homer in Cincinnati’s 6-3 win over Atlanta on Wednesday. Votto is 11 for 20 in the last six games with two homers, a double and six walks. Tucker Barnhart also hit a two-run homer to back the pitching of Anthony DeSclafani who improved to 5-0 this season. Tonight’s game versus Arizona can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10. [more...]

Cleveland’s championship drought is over. LeBron James had a triple-double, Kyrie Irving’s 3-pointer with 53 seconds left put Cleveland ahead to stay and the Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last night. It’s the first major championship for the city of Cleveland since the Browns in 1964. James had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and Irving finished with 26 points for Cleveland — which erased a 3-1 series deficit to win the title. Draymond Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists for the Warriors, whose bid for back-to-back titles was thwarted. Golden State won an NBA-record 73 games in the regular season, then fell short in the playoffs. They went scoreless in the last three minutes of the final game. [more...]

Antonio Campbell scored 21 points, Kenny Kaminski made five 3-pointers and Ohio rolled into the Mid-American Conference tournament semifinals with a 79-62 win over Northern Illinois last night. The second-seeded Bobcats opened the second half with a 14-6 run and eventually built their lead to 24 points over the Huskies, who had trouble stopping Campbell, the MAC’s player of the year. Ohio, which made 14 3-pointers, will face Buffalo in today’s semifinals. Kaminski had 17 points and Jaaron Simmons added 16 with 11 assists. Tonight’s semi-final game can be heard live on Power 105 immediately following the Akron/Bowling Green game, which begins at 6:30. [more...]

The Ohio University Bobcats return to the hardwood tonight when they face Northern Illinois in the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference Tournament in Cleveland. Ohio hung on in the regular season finale to edge archrival Miami 67-65 on Friday at Millett Hall in Oxford. Thanks to the win and Western Michigan knocking off Central Michigan, the Bobcats locked up the No. 2 seed and will now take on the 7th seed Huskies inside Quicken Loans Arena for a chance to reach the semi-finals on Friday. Tonight’s match-up between Ohio and Northern Illinois can be heard live on Power 105 with pregame at 6:00 and the tipoff at 6:30. [more...]
