Major League Baseball trying to decide whether to review Joyce’s call

compiled from staff and wire reports

Major League Baseball is still deciding whether to review umpire Jim Joyce’s blown call that cost Armando Galarraga a perfect game.

Commissioner Bud Selig has the power to reverse umpire Jim Joyce’s missed call that came with two outs in the ninth inning Wednesday night in Detroit. Joyce ruled that Jason Donald of Cleveland was safe, then admitted he got the call wrong.

Selig would likely consult with his top advisers before making such a ruling. Several managers and players around baseball have said that the call should be reversed.

Umpire Jim Joyce is scheduled to be back at work Thursday afternoon behind the plate when Detroit hosts the Indians again.

compiled from staff and wire reports

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter beat the Cincinnati Reds for the eighth straight start, 4-1 on Wednesday night, tying the teams for the top spot in the National League Central Division.

Carpenter (7-1) has a 1.09 ERA during the eight-game winning streak that dates back to 2006.

Matt Holliday homered and Skip Schumaker, Ryan Ludwick and Brendan Ryan all had two hits and an RBI for the Cardinals. Holliday hit only his second homer in St. Louis this season.

Reds rookie Sam LeCure (1-1) allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings in his second major league start.

It’s criminal! Galarraga deprived of no-hitter by umpire’s blown call

compiled from staff and wire reports

Armando Galarraga of the Detroit Tigers lost his bid for a perfect game Wednesday night with two outs in the ninth inning on a call by first base umpire Jim Joyce turned an obvious out into a hit. Joyce later admitted he blew the call.

First baseman Miguel Cabrera fielded Jason Donald’s ground ball to his right going towards second base and made a nice throw to Galarraga covering the base. The ball was clearly there beating the runner and the entire crowd at Comerica Park in Detroit was about to celebrate their team’s 3-0 win over Cleveland and Jim Joyce signaled safe.

Detroit manager Jim Leyland immediately argued the call and was joined by several Tigers players after the final out of the game. Galarraga almost completed the third perfect game in MLB this season.

The Indians’ Fausto Carmona (4-4) pitched well. He allowed three runs-2 earned-surrendering nine hits and allowed no walks.

The Cleveland Indians found a team that is struggling just as much as they are.

Jake Westbrook pitched well. He gave up a run and was helped by Russell Branyan and Shin-Soo Choo homers, lifting the Indians to a 3-2 win over Detroit on Tuesday night.

Westbrook (3-3) gave up five hits and a walk over 7 2/3 innings after giving up a combined nine runs in his two previous starts, leading Cleveland, starting the day with the worst earned run average at 4.89. Westbrook’s performance helped lower that mark somewhat.

Setup man Chris Perez stranded two runners in the eighth inning by inducing Magglio Ordonez to pop up.

Kerry Wood, after an eventful ninth inning of allowing an unearned run, gained his third save in four chance.

Jeremy Bonderman (2-3) allowed Branyan’s homer in the fifth inning and Choo’s blast in the 6th inning.

Mark Grudzielanek added and RBI single in the eighth to give Cleveland an insurance run.

Reds reclaim first-place; show they can match St. Louis offensively

compiled from staff and wire reports

Scott Rolen is showing that he is the leader the Reds have needed all along with a young ballclub. Acquired last last season for often-injured, streaky and error-prone Edwin Encarnacion from Toronto, many baseball experts felt the Reds would end up on the losing end of the trade. But instead, he has been a solid teammate and team leader.

Rolen has been a thorn in the side of his old team the St. Louis Cardinals all season.

Rolen homered twice and doubled with four RBI’s in his homecoming in leading the Reds to a 9-8 win Tuesday night over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Johnny Cueto started for the Reds and had location problems. He didn’t strike out a single batter for the first time in his 72-start career. That is rare for someone who throws 93-97 mph. He blew leads of 3-0 and 7-3 before leaving in the sixth inning.

Jonny Gomes’ RBI single and Drew Stubbs’ go-ahead sacrifice fly off Blake Hawksworth put the Reds ahead to stay in the seventh inning after Brendan Ryan’s two-run double put the Cardinals ahead 8-7 in the sixth inning.

Joey Votto homered and had four hits. No one would’ve believed he had missed six-games due to a  sore neck.

The win moves the Reds one game ahead of St. Louis in first place in the NL Central Division.

The key points of the game for the Reds was the backside of their bullpen. Arthur Rhodes struck out pinch hitter Nick Stavinoha with the bases loaded to end the seventh inning and Nick Masset fanned Colby Rasmus with two men on to close out the eighth.

Enerio Del Rosario (1-0), recalled from Triple-A Louisville earlier in the day on Tuesday, finished the sixth and earned his first career victory.

Francisco Cordero worked the ninth for his 16th save.

Former Red Dennys Reyes (2-1) allowed the Reds to go ahead in the seventh and was the losing pitcher.
