The Cincinnati Reds topped the St. Louis Cardinals last night, 2-1. The Redlegs jumped on the board first on a Joey Votto RBI single in the first. Cincinnati would push the lead out to two in the fourth when Xavier Paul brought in a run on an RBI groundout. However, St. Louis would fight back late, cutting the lead to one in the eighth on a Yadier Molina RBI double. But it would not enough for the Cardinals as Aroldis Chapman closed the door in the ninth. Mat Latos threw six scoreless innings for the Reds, striking out four on the night. Cincinnati will continue the series in St. Louis tonight. Bronson Arroyo will take the hill against Jaime Garcia. The game can be heard on 970 WATH with pre game at 7:45 and first pitch at 8:15.
Reds ace Johnny Cueto is making progress in his rehab on a right lat strain. The right-hander threw 45 pitches in a bullpen session yesterday and said he felt no pain. The ace has been on the disabled list since April 15 and was eligible to come off yesterday, but will likely go on a rehab assignment to get his pitch count up.
The Cleveland Indians blew past the Kansas City Royals last night, 9-0. The Indians were on the board in the first on a Jason Kipnis solo blast and added one more in the third on an Asdrubal Cabrera RBI single. The Indians weren’t done though, blowing the game open with six in the fifth on RBI doubles from Asdrubal Cabrera and Carlos Santana and a three-run homer from Ryan Raburn. Ubaldo Jimenez was very good on the mound for Cleveland, throwing seven shutout innings and allowing just three hits. The Indians are back in action tonight as they host the Philadelphia Phillies tonight at 7.
Elsewhere in the MLB, Milwaukee toppled Pittsburgh, 10-4. The Chicago Cubs bested San Diego, 5-3. Detroit clipped Minnesota, 4-3. Houston dominated the New York Yankees, 9-1 and Atlanta clipped Washington, 3-2.
In area high school baseball last night, Wahama ousted Federal Hocking, 4-1. Southern defeated Belpre, 7-4. Meigs blanked Wellston, 10-0 and Eastern blasted South Gallia, 19-5.
In NBA playoff action yesterday, Brooklyn stayed alive, moving the series with Chicago to 3-2 on a 110-91 win and Atlanta tied the series with Indiana at two with a 102-91 win over the Hawks.
