Morning Sports Report – 5/28/2014

Athens quarterback Joe Burrow announced yesterday that he verbally committed to play football for Urban Meyer and The Ohio State Buckeyes in 2015. The 6-foot-4 junior has led the Bulldogs to a 23-and-3 record the last two seasons and back-to-back appearances in the regional finals. He has thrown for 6,971 yards and 94 touchdowns while adding another 1,425 yards rushing and 22 scores. Burrow is commit No. 3 for Ohio State in the class-of-2015. He chose the Buckeyes over offers from the likes of Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kentucky, Minnesota, N.C. State, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.

Andre Ethier drove in the Los Angeles Dodgers’ first four runs with a homer and a bases-loaded triple, and Zack Greinke tied a season high with 11 strikeouts in a 6-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds last night. Greinke allowed three runs, eight hits and no walks in 7 2-3 innings. The 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner was lifted after giving up a two-run homer by Devin Mesoraco — ending Greinke’s streak of 22 consecutive starts in which he had allowed fewer than three earned runs. Alfredo Simon threw 70 pitches in 3 2-3 innings, giving up five runs, five hits and four walks. The Reds will look to end their 4-game losing streak tonight when they send Homer Bailey to the mound versus the Dodgers. 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.

The Milwaukee Brewers knocked off Baltimore 7-6 in 10 innings. The Cardinals blanked the Yankees 6-0 and Pittsburg lost to the New York Mets 4-2 in other NL Central games on Tuesday.

The Reds agreed to terms with veteran right-handed reliever Carlos Marmol yesterday. A 2008 All-Star for Chicago, Marmol had his best season in 2010, when he posted 38 saves with a 2.55 ERA in 77 games. But control issues have plagued him since. The Reds have issues with their bullpen this season, as its 4.78 ERA is ranked last in the National League. If Marmol is able to find his control again in the Minors, he could be an option as relief help later this season.

Russell Westbrook had 40 points and 10 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder beat the San Antonio Spurs 105-92 on Tuesday night to tie the Western Conference finals at two games apiece. It matched the second-highest playoff point total of Westbrook’s career, falling short of the 43 he scored in the 2012 NBA Finals. Kevin Durant added 31 points on 11-for-22 shooting and Serge Ibaka added nine points and eight rebounds for the Thunder.

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