The Cincinnati Reds won in walk-off fashion over the LA Angels last night, 5-4. The Reds jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the fourth behind a Brandon Phillips three-run homer and a Todd Frazier RBI single. However, the Angels would chip away at the lead, scoring once in the fifth, twice in the seventh and once in the eighth to tie the game. But Joey Votto would give the Reds their first win of the season in the ninth with an RBI base hit. The Reds will wrap up the series with the Angels today. Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo will face off against Joe Blanton. The game can be heard on 970 WATH following the Midday Journal at 12:35.
The Cleveland Indians won their second in a row over the Toronto Blue Jays, 3-2 in 11 innings. The Indians were on the board first on a Michael Brantley RBI single in the third, but Maicer Izturis answered in the bottom half with a solo homer. The Indians scored one on a fielding error in the eighth, but once again the Jays answered behind a Jose Bautista solo shot in the ninth to send it to extras. However, Mark Reynolds crushed a solo blast in the eleventh to give the Indians the win. Cleveland will finish their series in Toronto tonight at 7.

The Columbus Blue Jackets made quite the splash before yesterday’s trade deadline, completing three deals. The Jackets made their biggest move when they sent Derek Dorsett, Derick Brassard, John Moore and a sixth-round draft pick in 2014 to the New York Rangers in exchange for three time All-Star Marian Gaborik. 31-year old Gaborik has struggled this year, but tallied 41 goals a season ago. The Jackets also added goaltender Michael Leighton from Philadelphia and a third-round pick in 2015 for backup goalie Steve Mason. Columbus finally acquired winger Blake Comeau from Calgary for a fifth-round pick in the upcoming draft. Columbus returns to the ice tonight as they head to Nashville. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 7:45 and drop of the puck at 8.
