Cueto gives up 4 homers in 8-5 loss to Los Angeles (Saturday)

The Cincinnati Reds had hoped that Johnny Cueto would come back from his seven-game suspension fresh with renewed vigor. Instead, he was rusty and gave up four homers in a losing effort.

Andre Eithier, Jay Gibbons, Matt Kemp and Ryan Theriot all reached the outfield bleacher seats at Dodger Stadium, as LA snapped the Reds’ seven-game winning streak with an 8-5 victory Saturday night.

Chad Billingsley (10-7) gave up three runs and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings and struck out seven.

Pitching on an unheard of 10 days rest, Cueto’s rustiness was noticeable from the beginning of the game. This was his first start since an 11-3 loss to St. Louis on which he received a suspension for kicking several Cardinals players during a bench-clearing melee, while he was being pinned up against the home plate screen. Cueto (11-4) only lasted three innings, giving up five runs and five hits.

Reds snap Dodger Stadium skid at 12 games with 3-1 win (Friday)

The Reds rolled into Los Angeles after sweeping a 3-game series in Arizona with optimism. Some wondered why, because they hadn’t won a game at Dodger Stadium in 12 previous games dating back to July 28, 2005.

But that all ended on Friday night as the Reds won 3-1 over the Dodgers, their season-high seventh win in a row.

The Reds received a nice performance from Homer Bailey who pitched two solid games during the seven-game suspension of Johnny Cueto.

Bailey, who moves to 3-2 on the season, allowed a run and four hits, struck out six and walked two in his second outing since coming off the disabled list. Last Sunday, he threw six innings of three-hit ball in a 2-0 win over Florida after being out of action almost three months for inflammation in his shoulder.

Arthur Rhodes pitched a perfect eighth and Francisco Cordero a scoreless ninth for his 33rd save in 39 attempts.

The win, coupled with St. Louis losing at home to San Francisco, moved the Reds division lead to 4 1/2 games. That is the largest margin since May 18, 2002, when they held a five-game lead before finishing in third place. The Reds are seeking their first division title since 1995, when they swept Los Angeles in the first round of the postseason.

Cincinnati (71-51) has won eight straight on the road and is a season-high 20 games over .500.

Tigers beat Indians 5-2 behind Scherzer (Saturday)

All season long, Indians fans haven’t expected much out of the team’s offense, so when they don’t score many runs its not a surprise.

On Friday and Saturday night, Cleveland scored a total of two runs and collected seven hits in losing 6-0 and 5-2 at Comerica Park in Detroit.

When there’s no run production, it puts pressure on young pitchers like Josh Tomlin. In his first two major-league starts, he allowed two runs and seven hits in 12-plus innings to Toronto and the New York Yankees. In his last three outings, Tomlin has allowed 11 earned runs and 21 hits in 18 innings against Boston, Baltimore and Saturday to Detroit.

Saturday night, Tomlin pitched six innings and gave up five runs on seven hits and two walks while throwing 101 pitches.

Indians hitters were facing a pitcher that they usually beat at Progressive Field but Max Scherzer is dominating at home in 2010. He is 7-3 with a 2.87 ERA at Comerica Park and has an overall 9-9 record.

Indians commit 5 errors but still beats Kansas City, 7-3

The Cleveland Indians banged out a season-high 17 hits on Wednesday and lost.

Thursday, they commit five errors and have a runner throw out at all four bases and win.

Rafael Perez (4-0), the fourth of five Indians pitchers, pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings and closer Chris Perez got four outs for his 15th save in 19 opportunities.

Shin-Soo Choo (MLB)

Shin-Soo Choo hit a tie-breaking RBI single in a five-run eighth inning and the Indians rallied to beat the Kansas City Royals 7-3 on Thursday night.

Asdrubal Cabrera had two hits and drove in two runs for the Indians, while Matt LaPorta and Jayson Nix had two hits apiece.

Reds sweep Arizona with sixth straight win; lead St. Louis by 3 1/2 games

The Cincinnati Reds just keep on rolling going 12-4 in the month of August and are now 70-51 overall.

Each night it is a different hero and on Thursday night, it was catcher Ramon Hernandez, who along with Jay Bruce belted back-to-back homers in the fourth inning to break a scoreless tie and Cincinnati beat the Diamondbacks 9-5.

The win gave the Reds a three-game sweep over the last-place team in the NL West and was the Reds sixth win in a row, the season’s longest streak.

Cincinnati now has a season-high 3 1/2 -game lead over the St. Louis Cardinals for first place in the NL Central and won their seventh straight road game.

Travis Wood, called up from Triple-A Louisville on Thursday to join the starting rotation, pitched 6 1/3 innings and allowed one run and four hits with six strikeouts. Wood, now 4-1 lowered his earned run average to 2.51.

Ramon Hernandez, on a .360 hitting spree with two home runs since coming off the DL on July 22, belted a three-run homer to left field on the first pitch he saw from Joe Saunders (7-13). Jay Bruce followed with his second home run in as many nights. It was the seventh time the Reds have hit back-to-back homers this season.


* To make room for Travis Wood, Cincinnati optioned  Carlos Fisher to Triple-A Louisville. Manager Dusty Baker said Fisher will get a September call-up.
