MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Reds win in 11; Indians fall to Toronto

compiled from staff and wire reports

Laynce Nix (mlb)

Laynce Nix belted a solo, pinch-hit homer in the bottom of the 11th inning Monday night, powering Cincinnati to a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets and keeping the Reds undefeated in extra innings.

Nix hit a high drive off of Manny Acosta (1-1) that barely cleared the wall in right-center field with one out for his first career game-ending homer.

Nick Masset (3-1) pitched the last two innings, giving up two singles in the 11th. Then Cincinnati pulled out another game at the end–eight of their 13 wins have come in their final at-bat. They are 3-0 in extra innings.

Drew Stubbs had a leadoff homer in the first inning for the Reds off Oliver Perez this season. Joey Votto had an RBI single off the left-hander, who lasted six innings and remained winless in six starts  since August 18, 2009.

Brett Cecil (mlb)

Left-hander Brett Cecil took a perfect game into the seventh inning for Toronto and ended up winning 5-1 over Cleveland Monday night. Cecil allowed one hit in eight innings pitched, striking out a career-high 10.

Cecil (2-1) lost the perfect game when he walked Grady Sizemore with one out in the seventh. He then gave a base-on-balls to Shin-Soo Choo but came back to strike out Austin Kearns before Jhonny Peralta lined a 2-2 pitch into left field, scoring Sizemore, making the score 4-1.

Toronto hit three home runs off Mitch Talbot (3–2), giving the Blue Jays an AL-leading 41 (Jose Bautista, Travis Snider and John Buck).

Clippers lose lead late as bullpen fails; Fall 6-4 to Syracuse


Columbus, Ohio — The Columbus Clippers in the 2010 baseball season usually get a good effort from the starting pitcher and some early run production and that has led to 16 wins so far in the first four weeks of the season. But not on Monday night at Huntington Park as the Syracuse Chiefs came from behind against the Clippers bullpen to win 6-4.

The third game of a four game series was all Columbus until the Chiefs, Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals rallied for a five run outburst in the seventh inning to win their first game of the series.

Syracuse starter Shairon (Shy-ron) Martis earned his first win of the season and Seth Bynum hit his third homer of the season.

The Clippers drew first blood, scoring runs in the third inning. With two outs and two runners on base, shortstop Jason Donald lined a  two-run RBI double into the right centerfield gap to put Columbus up 2-0. In the fourth inning, Columbus (16-10) scored again when Brian Buscher knocked in Jordan Brown.

The Syracuse Chiefs (15-10) were only able to get one base runner through the first five innings against Columbus’ number 5 starter Josh Tomlin.

In the sixth inning, Syracuse second baseman Seth Bynum led off with a 375-foot homer to the left centerfield bleachers and it was 3-1.

The seventh was the big inning for the Chiefs as Mike Morse led off with a walk. Chase Lambin followed with a strikeout. Chris Duncan was the next hitter. Morse advanced to second on a throwing error by pitcher Carlton Smith. Duncan then singled home Morse to cut the deficit to 3-2 Columbus. Seth Bynum then singled and was followed by Carlos Maldonado who flied out to center for the second out. Eric Bruntlett was the next hitter and he doubled up the left centerfield power alley to score Bynum and Duncan, it was 4-3 Chiefs. Pete Orr promptly hit an RBI single to score Bruntlett. The next batter was Kevin Mench who reached on an infield single and Orr scored on a throwing error by Columbus third baseman Brian Buscher and the score was 6-3. Columbus never really threatened after that.

Joel Peralta pitched the ninth inning for the Chiefs to earn his sixth save of the season.

The Clippers will close out their 10-game homestand against the Chiefs on Tuesday morning, with ace Carlos Carrasco getting the ball. First pitch is 11:35 a.m.
