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.

Tommy Armour III leads after round one of 3-M Championship

Tommy Armour III had a very productive round on Friday.

Armour shot a 9-under-par 63 and has a one-stroke lead over Mark Calcavecchia and David Frost after one round of the 3M Championship in Blaine, Minnesota. John Cook and Jeff Sluman are two shots back.

Friday was a perfect day for golf; temperatures were in the low-80′s, with partly cloudy skies and very little wind. 45 of the 78 players finished under par.

Armour, who only had two victories in over 20 years on the PGA Tour, has three second-place finishes in 12 previous starts during his rookie year on the Champions Tour. He finished 8th at the Senior British Open and 11th at the U.S. Senior Open.

Starting on the back nine, Armour birdied three of his first four holes and added another at number 18. Birdies on the 2nd and 3rd holes moved him to 6-under par, before he birdied his last three holes. Armour, who ranks 10th in tour putting average, one-putted for seven of his birdies.

Andre Johnson gets new deal from Houston Texans

Andre Johnson has said all along that he was committed to the Houston Texans football team.

Now, he has the contract he wanted to stay in Houston his entire career.

The All-Pro wide receiver signed a two-year extension on Thursday that will keep him in Houston through the 2016 season.

Reports out of Houston has the maximum value of the contract at $38.5 million, including $13 million guaranteed.

The 29-year-old Johnson, who had five years left on his contract, has led the NFL in receiving yards the past two years and topped 100 pass receptions in three of the past four. He has the NFL’S highest receiving yards average (90.2 per game) since 2006.

Team owner Bob McNair feels that the soft-spoken Johnson will become the team’s first Hall of Fame player and never wanted him to play anywhere else.

The Texans drafted Johnson third overall in 2003, the expansion team’s second year of existence. The team re-signed him to and eight-year contract in 2007.

The Texans have made improvements over the years and were 9-7 in 2009, their first winning record.
