Cleveland will pick up the remainder of Branyan’s $2 million salary or send Seattle a player to be named.

The 34-year-old Branyan hit 31 home runs for Seattle in 2009 but was not re-signed in the off-season. He was signed by Cleveland during spring training but missed the start of the season with a back injury. He batted .263 with 10 homers and 24 RBI’s for Cleveland this season.

The trade of Branyan allows the Indians to recall Matt LaPorta from Triple-A Columbus and will make him the team’s everyday first baseman. LaPorta has been playing the outfield for Columbus went he was sent down to the minors a few weeks ago.

Reds win Ohio Cup again by rallying past Tribe, 6-4


CINCINNATI, OHIO –The Ohio Cup is a trophy that is sponsored by the Ohio Lottery for the two baseball series between the Reds and Indians each season.

The shiny cup will be spending another year in the southwestern part of the state but the Reds say its nice to win it, but winning games period is their goal.

The first-place Reds lead by Laynce Nix who singled home Jay Bruce with the tiebreaking run in the bottom of the sixth inning Saturday night and came around to score himself on a jarring dive into home , rallying the Reds to their fifth straight win, 6-4 over the Cleveland Indians.

Nix’s line-shot single off Justin Masterson (2-7) was the turning point in a ragged game on a hot, humid and muggy night. Cincinnati held on for its fourth win in five games this season against their younger intrastate rivals.

The game had quite a nice twist to it. Cleveland’s second baseman Jayson Nix and Reds left fielder Laynce Nix started together in a big-league game for the first time. They’re one of eight sets of brothers currently in the major leagues. The Indians claimed Jayson Nix off the waiver wire from the White Sox on Thursday.

Cincinnati has moved back into first place in the NL Central, a half-game ahead of St. Louis. The Cardinals won at Kansas City earlier in the day, 5-3.

The Cincinnati Reds haven’t been in first so late in a season since 1999, the last time they made a serious run at the postseason.

The Reds received good bullpen work from Micah Owings, Daniel Ray Herrera, Arthur Rhodes, Nick Masset and Francisco Cordero. Herrera was the winner (1-3) and Cordero picked up his 20th save.

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.

Edwin Jackson Arizona (mlb)

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

Manny Acta wants Indians not to worry about losing (mlb)

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.
