Jhonny Peralta ended two long streaks with one swing of the bat.

Peralta singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning Sunday to help the Cleveland Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds 4-3, to snap a six-game losing streak and give David Huff his first win since April 15.

The Reds have won 11 of 15 from their in-state rivals since 2008, and the overall series is tied at 33.

Huff (2-6) gave up three runs and six hits over six innings for his first win in six starts. The left-hander was 0-5 with a 7.33 ERA since his first complete game April 15, a four-hit, 3-2 win over Texas.

Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey left in the third inning with tightness in his right shoulder.

Kerry Wood worked the ninth for his first save since September 25. The righthander was sidelined out of spring training until May 7 with a strained muscle in his back. He blew his first save opportunity last Wednesday by allowing five runs in the ninth inning of an 8-4 loss to Kansas City.

Scott Rolen drove in all three Reds runs with two towering homers. His 10th of the season made it 3-3 in the top of the sixth, and he put the Reds ahead with a two-run homer in the first.

It was the 21st career multihomer game and second this year for Rolen, who has hit safely in nine of his last 12 games, going 15 for 40 (.375) with four homers and 14 RBI’s.

compiled from staff, wire and NASCAR reports

NASCAR’s new Hall of Fame inducted its inaugural five members on Sunday, celebrating and honoring auto racing’s pioneers.

NASCAR founder Bill France was recognized for his idea and vision of turning unregulated racing into the premiere motorsports series. His son, Bill France Jr., was recalled as a tough taskmaster who worked his heart and soul into keeping NASCAR going and improving it as the years go by.

Richard Petty (nascar)

Seven-time champion Richard Petty, was given credit for being the sport’s first real superstar, while Junior Johnson was honored as the symbol of the sport’s southern roots.

Dale Earnhardt Sr., who is the “champion’s champion” who represented the hard-working, blue collar spirit which is the heart of NASCAR.

“The Intimidator” was represented on stage by his widow, Teresa, and four children. It was a rare form of unity for a family that’s been fractured since Earnhardt’s 2001 death in the Daytona 500.

The Earnhardt family closed the ceremony.

Bill France Sr., was accepted into the Hall by his son, Jim, who said the promoter-turned-NASCAR founder would’ve been thrilled to see the racing series had far exceeded his expectation and vision.

Bill France, Jr., who took the reins from his father and guided NASCAR through a 30-year period of positive extreme growth, was represented by his children, Brian and Lesa.

Richard Petty, NASCAR’s all-time wins leader was inducted by his son, Kyle. “The King,” wearing his trademark cowboy hat and dark sunglasses, deflected attention to his achievements in his speech, preferring to praise his parents, his family, the media, his fans and the France family.

Junior Johnson, the one-time moonshine runner-turned-champion driver and car owner, was inducted by his 16-year old son, Robert.

compiled from staff, wire and PGA Tour reports

22-year-old Jason Day fought through a rocky final round for a 2-over 72 that was good enough to give the Australian the Byron Nelson championship title for his first win of his PGA Tour career.

For several golf fans, the 2010 Byron Nelson will go down in history for the remarkable debut by Jordan Spieth, a 16-year-old local high school student.

Spieth, became the sixth-youngest player to make the cut on the PGA Tour.

Spieth was within three shots of the lead on the final nine holes, but dropped back into a tie for 16th. He shot a 2-over 72 in the final round, his highest score of the tournament. His 4-under-276 was six strokes behind Jason Day.

Spieth, the reigning U.S. Junior Amateur champion, would’ve made $91,185.71 had he turned pro last week. However, he’s planning to wait through another year of high school, then attend the University of Texas.

Spieth has already gotten a sponsor’s exemption to play in Memphis next month. Beforehand, he’ll play an American Junior Golf Association event in Arizona next week. Then he has finals.

Day nearly withdrew on Thursday morning because he felt so ill. He ended up sharing the lead after the first round and was within striking distance all week.

Following Day, was a second place tie between Brian Gay and Jeff Overton.
