Bengals bring in Pacman Jones for second tryout

compiled from staff and wire reports

Cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones has received a second look from the Cincinnati Bengals on Tuesday, a strong indication that the team with a history of trying to rehabilitate troubled players might be considering its next  project.

Cincinnati had not make a formal contract proposal as of Tuesday night, agent Tom Hunter told media outlets.

The Bengals are a handful of teams that have shown an interest in Jones, who was released by the Cowboys after the 2008 season and didn’t play in 2009. Only 26 years old, Jones has seen his career hit rock bottom because of his repeated arrests.

Jones was suspended for the entire 2007 season and for six games with the Cowboys in 2008 for violating the NFL’s conduct policy.

Jones went to West Virginia University along with late Bengals wide receiver Chris Henry. He and Henry got into so much trouble with their teams, that commissioner Roger Goodell toughened the league’s disciplinary policies

The Cincinnati Bengals have one of the best cornerback tandems in the NFL  in Johnathan Joseph and Leon Hall, who had six interception apiece last season. The defense finished fourth in the league, one of the main reasons Cincinnati won the AFC North with a 10-6 record.

The Columbus Crew defeated the defending Big Ten champion Ohio State men’s soccer team, 4-0, Tuesday night in the ninth annual Connor Senn Memorial Game at the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus before 1,507 fans.

With the money being raised from ticket sales and silent auction items, the Connor Senn Memorial Fund surpassed the $170,000 mark after nine years and is now a fully-endowed scholarship at the Ohio State University. Some of the big ticket items from the auction Tuesday were Ohio State football tickets, Evan Turner autographed photos and weekend stays at area hotels.

Jason Garey led the Crew scoring assault on the field. The Crew, who is undefeated in Major League Soccer play through four games, with four goals on the night. For the Buckeyes, Konrad Warzycha, the son of Crew head coach Robert Warzycha, registered three of the team’s five shots on the day, while goalkeepers Matt Lampson and Ryan Dalton combined for nine saves.

The game started off with what looked to be an even match with the teams swapping possession for much of the first 15 minutes. The Crew, however, were the first to score. Garey opened the scoring in the 16th minute off of a cross from forward Emilio Renteria, sending the ball into the lower right 90 off a diving shot along the left side of the goal box.

Garey, a Maryland alum, continued the scoring with the second goal for the Crew unassisted in the 30th minute. The Crew were too fast to pounce on the defensive brakedown by the Buckeyes and scored again quickly in the 31st minute. Forward Sergio Herrera connected on a pass from Renteria with his scored assist for the night.

The Crew upped their lead during the 73rd minute when Renteria, with his third assist, placed the ball at the feet of Garey, who shot the ball into the back left of the net for his third goal on the night.

Although the Crew won the game 4-0, both teams will say the score of the match does not matter. The true victory of the Connor Senn Memorial game is keeping alive the memory of the former Buckeye who passed away playing the game he loved, soccer!

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Reds and Indians both lose

compiled from staff and wire reports

Rod Barajas belted a tie-breaking solo bomer in the ninth inning to rally the New York Mets over the Cincinnati Reds, 5-4.

Barajas hit the first pitch from Francisco Cordero (1-2) for his seventh homer. The 6’2 catcher has homered five times in his last nine games.

The Mets blew a 4-2 lead in the eighth inning when Joey Votto and Scott Rolen hit back-to-back homers off Fernando Nieve. Rolen’s homer was upheld by an umpire’s review; the ball cleared the outfield wall before a fan touched it.

Pedro Feliciano (1-0) got the final out in the eighth. Francisco Rodriguez pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save in five tries, ending the Mets’ three-game losing streak.

Ricky Romero (mlb)

Toronto Blue Jays starter Ricky Romero won despite not having his best stuff. Romero (3-1) struck out nine, but gave up a season-high five runs in six innings. He  threw three wild pitches, hit a batter and was charged with a throwing error while attempted a pickoff.

Jose Bautista homered for the second straight game and Toronto capitalized on nine walks.

Bautista’s two-run homer in the fourth was his sixth of the season for the Blue Jays, who have homered 14 times in winning five of their last 6 games. Toronto beat Cleveland, 8-5.

Reliever Jensen Lewis (2-1) took the loss.

Cleveland starter Jake Westbrook walked five in 3 2/3 innings and Lewis walked three in the sixth before allowing a run-scoring double to Alex Gonzalez. Kevin Gregg pitched the ninth for his seventh save in as many chances.

#1 pick Strasburg moved up to Triple-A Syracuse by Washington

compiled from staff, wire and Washington Nationals info

Stephen Strasburg (MiLB)

Stephen Strasburg dominated Double-A so much that now he has been promoted to move up to Triple-A Syracuse.

Triple-A will be more challenging. He’ll see more veteran and seasoned hitters, tighter strike zones and he’ll play with better players overall.

The Washington Nationals promoted their number 1 overall draft pick to Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, keeping him on a pace for his major league debut in the next few weeks or even a month.

Strasburg went 3-1 with a 1.64 ERA in five starts with Double-A Harrisburg, striking out an Eastern League-high 27 and walking six in 22 innings. He ranked first in the league in strikeout-to-walk ratio and strikeouts per nine innings.

Strasburg will make his International League debut Friday when Syracuse hosts the Gwinnett Braves. He will throw 85-90 pitches or six innings, whichever comes first.

The Nationals are being very cautious with their prized pitching prospect, who signed a record four-year, $15.1 million contract last year. Also, for contractual reasons, Washington can save money down the road by postponing Straburg’s major league debut until as long as they can, but rumors around baseball is that they’ll bring him up June.
