MLB UPDATE: Reds win at Chicago and Indians beat Minnesota at home (Friday results)


Bronson Arroyo threw five-hit ball over seven-innings in another dominating performance against the Chicago Cubs, as the Reds beat the Cubs, 3-0 in Wrigley Field to move to 14 games over .500 for the first time since 1999.

Cincinnati received a two-run homer from Ryan Hanigan off Tom Gorzelanny (6-6) in the second inning, an RBI single from Brandon Phillips in the seventh inning and won for seventh time in nine games.

After nine straight losing seasons, the Reds are 14 games over .500 for the first time since they went 96-67 in 1999. The last time the NL Central leaders led the division this late was the final week of that season.

The Cubs once again couldn’t get anything going against Bronson Arroyo who is now 12-6.

The right-hander held Chicago scoreless for the second time this season, striking out seven and walking one. He is 5-0 with a 1.88 ERA in his past six starts against the boys from the Windy City, including a win in July in which he went six inning.

Reds closer Francisco Cordero got a shaky save, but has 30 saves in 36 chances; the fourth straight year and sixth time overall he’s finished with 30 or more.


Matt LaPorta homered leading off the bottom of the ninth to give the Indians a 7-6 victory over Minnesota at Progressive Field after Jim Thome had an apparent homer taken away from him by the umpires even after a replay review.

LaPorta hit his sixth homer off Matt Guerrier (2-7) after the Twins had tied it in the top half on a two-run single by Alexei Casilla off closer Chris Perez (1-2). Casilla had a career-high four RBI’s.

The game-tying hit off Chris Perez, who had not allowed a run since June 28, covering 15 games, came after former Indian Jim Thome’s pinch-hit drive was rule a double. The umpiring crew used video replay to uphold the call which angered Twins manager Ron Gardenhire, who was ejected.

Television replays showed the ball hitting a railing above the yellow line atop the wall in left-center.

Asdubal Cabrera and Jayson Nix both had three hits for Cleveland which roughed up lefty Francisco Liriano, breaking his 21-inning scoreless streak. Liriano tied a career-high with six walks, throwing 109 pitches in only 4 2/3 innings. He struck out six and allowed seven hits and four runs and saw his four-game winning streak end.
