Morning Sports Report – 4/24/2014

Brandon Dubinsky scored with 22.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Nick Foligno’s wrist shot just inside the blue line 2:49 into the extra session gave the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins last night. The result was bedlam for the Jackets and the standing room only crowd inside Nationwide Arena in Columbus. The Blue Jackets overcame a 3-0 deficit for their first home playoff victory in the franchise’s 13 seasons, sending the series back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday night tied 2-2. Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz and James Neal scored in a span of 5:01 of the first period to stake the Penguins to a 3-0 lead. But Ryan Johansen and Dubinsky each had a goal and an assist and Boone Jenner also scored for Columbus, which is making only its second ever postseason appearance. All four games in the series have been decided by a 4-3 margin and all four times the team that scored first – and also went on to hold a 3-1 lead – has lost.

The Cincinnati Reds won their second consecutive game over Pittsburg after beating the Pirates 4-2 last night at PNC Park. Reds starter Alfredo Simon improved to 3-1 after tossing six and two thirds innings allowing just two runs on 4 hits while striking out 4. Cincinnati trailed 2-1 after an Andrew McCutcheon homerun in the bottom half of the third, but scored 3 runs in the 5th before tacking on another in the 8th to seal the win. Catcher Devin Mesoraco extended his hitting streak to 11 games and Jay Bruce went 2-for-4 at the plate with one RBI.  Billy Hamilton was 2-for-5, scored once and has hit safely in 7-of-his-last-8 games. The Reds will try and make it three-in-row tomorrow when they send Tony Cingrani to the mound. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame set for 12:05 and the first pitch at 12:35.

Federal Hocking improved to 7-3 overall and 6-3 in the TVC-Hocking after it beat Waterford 9-8 Wednesday. The Lancers have won 5-out-of-6 games heading into their big showdown at Glouster Park tonight against the first place Trimble Tomcats. Alexander trailed Jackson 6-4 heading into the final frame before winning 7-6 in 8 innings. The Spartans improved to 9-1 overall this season and will take on Wellston tonight in Albany. Athens beat Logan for the 2nd time this season after winning 10-2 yesterday at Rannow Field on The Plains. Sam Vander Ven pitched a complete game shutout and allowed just six hits and struck out three to lead the Bulldogs.

On your radio dial tonight at 6:06, it’s the Sports Fan presented by J&K Contracting on 970WATH and 97.1FM.
