compiled from staff and wire reports

Edwin Jackson pitched for the Tampa Bay Rays from 2006-2008. His only other shutout in 126 career starts came for Tampa Bay in 2007.

On Friday June 25th, 2010, Jackson (5-6) settled an old score with the team who gave up on him.

He settled down late in the game after a  wild start to throw the fourth no-hitter of the season, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Friday night.

Jackson threw an unheard of 149 pitches, a season high, and walked eight, all but one in the first three innings, in the second no-hitter in Arizona history.

This was the third time the Rays have been no-hit since last July, including Dallas Braden’s perfect game at Oakland on May 9.

Colorado’s Ubaldo Jimenez no-hit Atlanta on April 17 and Philadelphia’s Roy Halladay tossed a perfect game at Florida on May 29.

Jason Bartlett grounded out to shortstop for the final out.

Jeff Niemann (6-2) was the losing pitcher.

Reds beat Indians 10-3 on Irish Heritage Night


CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Cincinnati Reds, wearing green baseball caps as part of the Irish Heritage Night promotion at Great American Ballpark, beat the Cleveland Indians, 10-3 Friday night before a crowd of 32,844.

This intrastate rivalry which used to favor Cleveland back in the late 90′s and early 2000′s, has been quite one-sided lately as Cincinnati has dominated the past three seasons, going 12-4.

Drew Stubbs drove in four runs with a homer and a single and helped drop Cleveland to its sixth loss in a row.

It didn’t take the Reds long to get on the board against Aaron Laffey (0-2). He hit a two-run homer to right field in the second inning to make it 2-0. And he added a two-run single in the fifth to make it 8-2.

Scott Rolen also homered for Cincinnati and collected two runs batted in. Jay  Bruce doubled twice, scored three times and hit a sacrifice fly.

Aaron Harang (6-7) gave up eight hits in seven innings, getting his first victory in three starts. the Reds had been shut out in his previous two starts.

The Indians continue their free-fall. Cleveland fell to 20 games under .500 at 26-46, the third-worst record in the majors. Cleveland has lost 10 0f 11 overall.

With Friday’s win, Cincinnati and St. Louis remain close to each other in the NL Central Division race. Kansas City and Zack Greinke shutdown the Cardinals in Kansas City, 4-2 so the Reds who trailed St. Louis for the past week by 1 1/2 games, is now leading the division again by a 1/2 game.

In the beginning of this game, it looked like the Indians would take control in the first and second innings. In both frames, they got two men on with no one out and both times came up empty. All told in the game, Cleveland was 0 for 9 with men in scoring position.

Aaron Laffey was called from Triple-A Columbus to pitch the game. The left-hander has never done well against Cincinnati, going 0-4 in four appearances with an 11-2 ERA. Both of his 2010 losses have come against the Reds.

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Phillies showed the weaknesses of the Indians, no starting pitching, no bullpen, no speed and definitely no defense. At 29-45 and slipping fast, we’ll probably see another fire sell with veterans Kerry Wood, Jake Westbrook and Jhonny Peralta being dealt in July.

Indians starter Fausto Carmona (6-6) allowed a season-high seven runs in four innings. It was his shortest start of the season.

The Phillies scored five runs in the second and five in the sixth.

Reds west coast road trip ends up 3-3 after sweep of Athletics

compiled from staff and wire reports

After the Reds got swept last weekend in Seattle, all of the so-called experts in baseball starting saying that they were going to fall back into their customary fifth or sixth place in the NL Central Division.

Well, the “Rally Reds” as they’re called in 2010, went to the Bay area of California and swept the Oakland Athletics in a 3-game series and end the road trip a respectable 3-3. Not bad for a team that usually is lucky to win one or none on trips to the Pacific Coast in the past.

The Reds won 3-0 on Wednesday and the game came down to three crucial plays or three specific innings which won the game for Cincinnati.

In the first inning, the Reds loaded the bases with two outs when Joey Votto walked, Brandon Phillips singled and Jonny Gomes was hit by a pitch. Jay Bruce came to the plate and is not known to come through in the clutch, but after falling behind in the count at 0-2. Bruce fouled off one pitch and lined the next pitch into right field scoring Votto and Phillips.

In the Athletics fourth inning, they loaded the bases with no one out. Gabe Gross lined a soft liner to Brandon Phillips at second base. He let the ball drop and threw home to force the runner and catcher Ramon Hernandez threw to third where Miguel Cairo tagged out Kurt Suzuki for a double play.

In the A’s eighth inning, winning pitcher Johnny Cueto (7-2) gave up back-to-back singles to start the inning. Reds manager Dusty Baker brought in Nick Masset to face Kurt Suzuki, who hit the first pitch down the third base line where Miguel Cairo made a diving stop, tagged third and threw to first for a double play. Masset then struck out the dangerous Kevin Kouzmanoff to end the inning.

Reds closer Francisco Cordero worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his 19th save and that was the end of the road trip.

The Reds are off Thursday before opening a weekend series against the Cleveland Indians in Great American Ball Park.

The Indians took a 6-5 lead in the ninth when Trevor Crowe scored from third on Jimmy Rollins’ throwing error from shortstop.

In the bottom of the ninth, Kerry Wood (1-3) walked Brian Schneider, the number 8 hitter to start the inning. He got pinch-hitter and ex-Indian Ben Francisco to ground out to shortstop. Then Jimmy Rollins blasted a 1-1 pitch over the right field wall for the game winner.
