Johnny Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Joey Votto and Jay Bruce — the missing core of Cincinnati’s batting order much of the season — each drove in runs Wednesday night, leading the Reds to a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didn’t walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday. Jonathan Broxton escaped a bases-loaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play. Votto doubled home a pair of runs off Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3), who had won his last four starts.
The Reds and Dodgers will conclude their 4-game series this afternoon at Great American Ballpark. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 12:05 and the first pitch at 12:35.
Mat Latos has been cleared to join the Reds’ starting rotation this Saturday. Latos tossed 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball Monday in a rehab start with Triple-A Louisville, reporting no issues with his elbow, calf, or knee. Barring another unforeseen setback, Latos should be ready to make his 2014 season debut for the Reds on Saturday vs. the Brewers at Miller Park.
The Southern Ohio Copperheads picked up their first win of the year defeating Lima 2-1 last night. Grant Wruble had a 2-run double and Brandon Sittinger, Logan Blaire and Matt Mokoljczak didn’t allow an earned run during the win. The Copperheads and Locos will go at it again tonight at Bob Wren Stadium. The game can be heard live on Power 105 with pre game at 7:00 p.m. and the first pitch at 7:30.
Yordano Ventura dominated the Indians for seven stingy innings, and the Kansas City Royals scored all of their runs on sacrifice flies in a 4-1 victory over Cleveland on Wednesday. The four sacrifice flies tied a franchise record, and the Royals became only the second team to score four runs all on sacrifice flies since it became an official stat in 1954
Adam Scott is trying to build a golf game that can handle any golf course and any tournament. Now if he can just get it to show up at the U.S. Open. The No. 1 player in the world is among the favorites when the U.S. Open gets underway this morning at Pinehurst No. 2. Scott won his first major last year at the Masters. He easily could have won the last two British Opens. He was in the hunt at the PGA Championship. But the toughest test in golf? He hasn’t broken 70 in five years and has never finished higher than 15th.
On your radio dial tonight at 6:06, it’s the Sports Fan presented by J&K Contracting on 970WATH and 97.1FM.
