Todd Frazier hit a two-run homer off Zack Greinke, who lost his perfect record at Great American Ball Park, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 yesterday for a split of their four-game series. The Reds won the last two games to finish a 5-5 homestand that left them stuck closer to the bottom of the NL Central than the top. Alfredo Simon gave up seven singles in eight innings, joining the Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright as the NL’s nine-game winners. Joey Votto finished 2-for-3 at the plate and Skip Shumaker collected two hits as well and scored twice for Cincinnati.
The Reds head to Milwaukee tonight to begin a three game series with the first place Brewers. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 7:40 and the first pitch at 8:10.
Brandon Phillips made an early exit from Thursday’s game against the Dodgers with a sore index finger. Phillips nicked the finger while trying to field a grounder and the second baseman could be held out of Friday’s series opener versus the Brewers. He was 0-for-3 on Thursday afternoon and is batting .273 with just 4 homeruns in 63 games this season.
The Southern Ohio Copperheads return to the baseball diamond tonight and will take on Xenia at Bob Wren Stadium. The Snakes will send Jake Miller to the mound, who just finished up his second season with the Ohio Bobcats. The game can be heard live on Power 105 with pregame scheduled for 7:00 p.m. and the first pitch at 7:30.
Martin Kaymer shot a 5-under 65 to take a three-shot lead after the opening round of the U.S. Open. The German birdied three of the last five holes at Pinehurst No. 2 on Thursday to break out of a tie with Graeme McDowell, Kevin Na and Brendon de Jonge. Kaymer closed his round by sinking a 6-footer to save par at No. 18. It was the lowest round ever posted for the three Opens played at this Donald Ross masterpiece in the sand hills of North Carolina
The Bengals signed first-round pick Darqueze Dennard to a four-year deal Thursday, bringing their entire draft class under contract. The cornerback from Michigan State was taken 24th overall. He won the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back. He’s pegged to a backup role initially with veterans Leon Hall, Terence Newman, Dre Kirkpatrick and Adam “Pacman” Jones currently ahead of him on the depth chart.
