Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning — one day after teammate Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter — and the Los Angeles Dodgers held on to beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3 last night. The Reds hit only three balls out of the infield before Todd Frazier’s leadoff double down the left-field line in the eighth. That followed a three-run seventh by the Dodgers in which Ryu ran the bases and scored. The left-hander from South Korea came close to making the Dodgers the first team in major league history with consecutive no-hitters. Johnny Cueto allowed just 4 hits and 1 earned run in 6 and 1/3 innings for the Reds, who suffered their league leading 13th one-run loss of the season.
The Reds will look to avoid losing their 4th game straight tonight and will send Alfredo Simon to the mound. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 9:40 and the first pitch at 10:10.
Injured starter Mat Latos pitched four innings in his first rehab start for Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, allowing one earned run on three hits. Latos walked one and struck out three on the night, throwing 32 of his 49 pitches for strikes. It’s expected that he’ll only require another one or two rehab starts before he’s an option to finally make his season debut with Cincinnati.
Reds manager Bryan Price admitted on Friday that it “may not be possible this year” to get Joey Votto back to 100 percent. Votto is officially on the disabled list with a distal left quadriceps strain, but the Reds are concerned about the strength of his left knee, which he had operated on twice in 2012. The first baseman remains hopeful of returning on May 31 when first eligible, but it sounds like he’ll be playing compromised this season.
Dayan Viciedo hit a three-run homer, Conor Gillaspie collected four hits and the Chicago White Sox beat the Cleveland Indians 6-2 yesterday. Mike Aviles, Michael Brantley and Ryan Raburn had two hits apiece for the Indians, who have dropped three of four. Brantley and Raburn each drove in a run.
LeBron James had 32 points; Chris Bosh added 25 and the Miami Heat moved one win away from a return trip to the NBA Finals with a 102-90 win over the Indiana Pacers last night. Thunder forward Serge Ibaka says his strained left calf is fine and he expects to be able to play tonight in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals. Ibaka came back from what was thought to be a season-ending injury to play 30 minutes in Game 3 against San Antonio. He had 15 points, seven rebounds and four blocks to help Oklahoma City beat the Spurs 106-97 on Sunday and trim its deficit to 2-1.
Tryouts for Athens American Legion post 21 Junior and Senior Baseball teams will take place at Athens High School’s Rannow Field starting tonight through Thursday. Tryouts will start at 5 p.m. each day. American Legion Baseball is open to players 14 to 19 years of age.
On your radio dial tonight at 6:06, it’s the Sports Fan presented by J&K Contracting on 970WATH and 97.1FM.
