Jones’ comes through in clutch to beat Reds and Cordero

compiled from staff and wire reports

Garrett Jones singled off the wall in right-center with the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth Saturday night as the Pittsburgh Pirates came from behind to beat the Reds and closer Francisco Cordero, 5-4.

Jones’ hit, which snapped an 0-for-8 stretch for him, on a 3-2 pitch came just after Lastings Milledge drew a bases-loaded walk off Cordero (1-1) on a 3-2 pitch with two-outs to tie the game.

Ubaldo Jimenez found his groove and found the strike zone on Saturday night, the Atlanta Braves were not going to hit him at all.

Jimenez pitched the first no-hitter in the Rockies’ 18-year history and the majors first this season. He got help from Atlanta native Dexter Fowler, who made a spectacular catch in the seventh inning of a 4-0 win over the Braves in Atlanta.

Firing fastballs that reached 98 mph into the ninth inning, Jimenez pitched the first no-hitter since White Sox ace Mark Buehrle tossed a perfect game in a 5-0 victory over Tampa Bay on July 23, 2009.

The San Diego Padres, New York Mets and Tampa Bay Rays are the remaining franchises without a no-hitter.

After walking the leadoff batter in the fifth inning, his sixth walk, Jimenez took advice from pitching coach Bob Apadaca and began working only out of the stretch.

He retired the next 15 batters to end it. Fowler made a diving catch in left-center on Troy Glaus sinking line drive, which was the Braves best chance for a hit.

Jimenez threw a major-league high 128 pitches against Atlanta, but the heavy workland is nothing new for the Dominican right-hander. He had at least 100 pitches in 29 of his 33 starts last year and finished with 3,570 total, second-most in the National League hehind St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright with 3,614.

Jose Reyes hit a tie-breaking sacrifice fly to help the New York Mets beat the St. Louis Cardinals 2-1 in 20 innings on Saturday night in the longest game in the majors in two years.

It was the longest game in the majors since Colorado beat San Diego 2-1 in 22 innings on April 17, 2008.

St. Louis left the bases loaded in the 10th, 11th, 12th and 14th and 22 runners, including 14 in extra innings. St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina caught the entire game and went 3 for 9.

It was the longest scoreless game in the majors since the Los Angeles Dodgers and Montreal Expos went 21 innings without a run on August 23, 1989, according to STATS LLC. The Dodgers won that game 1-0 on Rick Dempsey’s leadoff homer in the 22nd inning.

It was the Mets’ longest game since they lost 4-3 to St. Louis in 25 innings on September 11, 1974, and the fourth longest in franchise history by innings. It was New York’s first win in a game that lasted at least 20 innings.

The game tied the second longest in Cardinals history.

Lastings Milledge singled home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning as the Pirates beat the Cincinnati Reds after blowing a late three-run lead.

Andrew McCutchen singled with two outs and stole second base, making him 6-for-6 in steal attempts. Milledge then lined a single up the middle off Nick Masset (2-1).

Octavio Dotel (1-0) got the victory despite suffering his first blown save in three opportunites.

Cincinnati had tied it at 3 in the top of the ninth against Dotel as pinch-hitter Chris Dickerson tripled off the center-field wall and scored on Orlando Cabrera’s one -out sacrifice fly to deep left.

Mitch Talbot pitched a complete game for his first career win and Luis Valbuena belted a two-run homer for Cleveland, in a 6-2 win.

Talbot (1-0) retired 12 in a row after Paul Konerko snapped an 0-12 slump with his fourth homer leading off the second inning. The right-hander, acquired in a December trade with Tampa Bay, gave up 6 hits and struck out two without walking a batter.

Luis Valbuena hit a two-run homer and the Indians scored three unearned runs off Mark Buerhle (2-1) in a game that was very quick for an American League game, 2 hours, 4 minutes.

Talbot’s piching masterpiece came just one day after David Huff went the distance in a 3-2 win against Texas, giving Cleveland it’s first back-to-back complete game wins since September 1996.
