Nolan Arenado, Ben Paulsen and Carlos Gonzalez each homered in a 10-run third inning Sunday to help the Colorado Rockies beat Cincinnati 17-7. It was a big afternoon for Paulsen, who finished with a career-high four hits that included a triple and two solo homers. Gonzalez also had two homers and drove in a career-best six runs. Colorado had eight hits in the third, including back-to-back homers by Arenado and Paulsen, to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 12-4 lead. The last time the Rockies scored double-digits in an inning was April 27, 2012, when they had 11 runs against the New York Mets. Michael Lorenzen was roughed up for eight runs in 2 1-3 innings. He allowed two of Colorado’s five homers. [more...]

Reds

The Reds designated struggling reliever Kevin Gregg for assignment to the minors on Monday before the start of the series against Atlanta. Cincinnati had the NL’s worst bullpen in the second half of last season. The Reds signed Gregg to a minor league deal in the offseason, and he made the team on a $1.5 million major league contract. Gregg was 0-2 with a 10.13 ERA in 11 relief appearances, giving up 12 earned runs and three homers in 10 2/3 innings. The Reds called up right-handed reliever Pedro Villarreal from Triple-A Louisville to take his place. [more...]

Derrick Rose scored 25 points leading the Chicago Bulls to a 99-92 victory over the short-handed Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals last night. Looking like the MVP he was before being slowed by knee injuries, Rose helped the Bulls swipe home-court advantage from the Cavs, who were missing starters Kevin Love and J.R. Smith. Kyrie Irving scored 30 points and LeBron James added 19 and 15 rebounds for Cleveland, playing its first game without Love, who was lost for the remainder of the postseason with a shoulder injury. Game 2 is Wednesday night. [more...]

Mike Leake pitched eight strong innings and hit his fifth career home run to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the Atlanta Braves 5-1 last night. Todd Frazier, Tucker Barnhart and Billly Hamilton also had solo homers and Joey Votto had two hits and drove in a run. Leake allowed four baserunners on two hits and two walks, and retired the last 12 batters he faced. He struck out three. Cincinnati, which ranks second in the NL with 31 homers, went up 4-0 in the eighth on Frazier’s seventh homer and 5-0 in the ninth on Hamilton’s second. [more...]

The Ohio Bobcats conclude the 2014-15 regular season by hosting MAC East Division rival Miami tonight in a `Battle of the Bricks’ matchup. Ohio will honor the careers of their three seniors – Maurice Ndour, Javerez Willis and guard Stevie Taylor — prior to the game. Ndour scored 25 points and blocked three shots, but the Bobcats were saddled with a 93-66 loss to Buffalo on Tuesday, which was their seventh in a row. The seven-game skid is the program’s longest since 1998. Ohio will look to end the drought tonight though when they welcome the Red Hawks to the Round House on Richland. Tonight’s game between Ohio and Miami can be heard live on Power 105 with the Bobcat Insider at 6:00, pregame at 6:30 and the tipoff at 7:00. [more...]

Alex Ovechkin added to his NHL-leading total with two goals Tuesday night, leading the charge in a 5-3 victory over the Blue Jackets, Columbus’ seventh loss in a row. Nicklas Backstrom had two assists for the Capitals, who solidified their hold on the first wild-card playoff spot in the East before starting a five-game homestand. Scott Hartnell had two goals and an assist — and was stopped on a penalty shot — while David Savard also scored for the Blue Jackets, who are 0-6-1 in their last seven. Columbus returns to the rink tomorrow night when they take on the Devils in New Jersey. Friday’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:45 and the drop of the puck at 7:00.

Sophomore Griffin Lutz scored a game high 21 points and grabbed 8 rebounds to lead Athens to a 63-48 win over Marietta last night in a DII sectional semi-final at Logan High School. Athens outscored the Tigers 21-10 in the opening frame and took a 24-point lead late in the 2nd quarter on a breakaway dunk by forward Ryan Luehrman. The Bulldogs led 52-26 after three before settling for the 15 point win. Joe Burrow scored 14 points and Ryan Luehrman chipped in with 10 for Athens, which improved to 20-2 on the season.

Micah Couch scored a game high 16 points and teammate Austin Downs added 10 with 10 assists as the Trimble Tomcats knocked off county rival Federal Hocking 72-43 Friday night in Glouster. The Tomcats turned around and defeated Wahama 74-48 Saturday in Mason to remain undefeated on the year and improve to 20-0 overall and 15-0 in the TVC-Hocking. The Athens Bulldogs won their 5th consecutive game by defeating New Lex 71-46 Friday night. Joe Burrow scored 25 points, making five 3-pointers. Ryan Luehrman added 23, as Athens improved to 18-2 on the season. Alexander lost a heartbreaker to River Valley falling 46-42 to the Raiders in Bidwell and Nelsonville-York beat Wellston 49-43.

Javarez Willis scored 22 points including six 3-pointers and Maurice Ndour added 16 and four blocked shots as Ohio survived a frenetic Raven Lee outburst and avenged an earlier loss to Eastern Michigan 76-73 Saturday. The sophomore Lee scored 24 of Eastern Michigan’s 28 points in the last 9:34 as the Eagles rallied from 11 points down to make it a two-point game in the final minute. But Lee, who finished with a season-high 33 points, missed a potential tying 3-pointer at the horn when the shot went wide. He scored 24 of the Eagles’ 25 points before Tim Bond made a 3-pointer with 45 seconds left, pulling Eastern Michigan to 75-73. Stevie Taylor made 3 of 4 foul shots inside the final minute for Ohio, which was embarrassed 76-40 by the Eagles Jan. 27. [more...]
