Reds bounce back from shutout by dumping Washington, 7-2

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Reds have always bounced back after disappointing losses, even shutouts.

After Sunday’s 1-0 loss to Colorado, everybody wondered where’s the offense?

Well the offense returned on Monday evening and got help from starting pitcher Johnny Cueto at the plate.

Cueto pitched six innings, before and after a rain delay and drove home two runs Monday night in helping the Reds beat the Washington Nationals.

The Reds still trail St. Louis by a 1/2 game in the NL Central Division. St. Louis beat Philadelphia last night.

The 9-2 Cueto helped the offense, getting a two-run single that got the offense moving. Johnny Gomes and Miguel Cairo added solo homers. Cairo’s was an upper deck bomb.

The Nationals escape a wild inning by pitcher J.D. Martin (1-5). He walked three in the second inning. Drew Stubbs plated two with a double and Cuetto followed that up with a single for his first two runs batted in of 2010.

A thunderstorm forced a delay in the third inning of 42 minutes.

Cueto left the game up to the bullpen to hold the lead and it did. However, the bullpen hasn’t always been kind to Cueto, blowing five leads, most of any pitcher in the major leagues.

Scott Rolen still out of Reds lineup; day-to-day status

compiled from staff and wire reports

Cincinnati Reds Third baseman Scott Rolen is still out of the lineup but the team is showing that they have plenty of depth by hanging with the St. Louis Cardinals for the NL Central title.

Rolen received a cortisone shot in his right hamstring on Monday. He is one of the reasons the Reds are one of the surprise teams in the National League this year.

Manager Dusty Baker said that the club will be deciding in the next few days whether or not to put rolen on the 15-day disabled list.

Rolen, 35, played in his sixth All-Star game last Tuesday in Anaheim. He’s hitting .87 with 17 homers and 57 RBI’s. He was in an 0-for-13 slump when he went out of the lineup recently.

During Friday night’s 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies, Rolen tagged up on a fly ball in the eighth inning and was thrown out at third base. He said he felt a burning sensation in his right hamstring while tagging up.

The Clippers hitters stood at the plate and waited for “BALL FOUR” being called by the home plate umpire all night in beating the Durham Bulls in Durham, North Carolina.

Bulls pitching issued 12 walks on the night and the Clippers added some timely hitting and a big inning to boost them to an 8-3 win.

Nick Weglarz got the scoring started with a solo home run in the second inning, but the lead was only momentarily as Durham scored one in the second inning and then two more in the third on a Justin Ruggiano home run.

The Clippers knocked out Durham starter Jeremy Hellickson (11-3) in the fourth, after he walked the bases loaded and allowed two runs to score before departing with just one out in the inning. Reliever Dale Thayer didn’t pitch much better, allowing a Jordan Brown bases-clearing double and issuing two more walks before the five-run inning finally ended.

From that point forward, Columbus starter Yohan Pino settled down, retiring the final eight batters he faced to pick up a quality start and improve to 8-5 on the season.

Dayton Dragons rained out at Burlington, Iowa

Info courtesy of the Dayton Dragons

The Dayton Dragons and Burlington Bees baseball game in the Midwest League, was cancelled due to rain on Monday night. The two teams do not play again in 2010 so the game will not be rescheduled.

The Dragons scored one run in the top of the first inning when DiDi Gregorius singled, went to second on a wild pitch, and scored on a bases hit by Cameron Satterwhite. Before Burlington had a chance to bat in the bottom of the first inning, heavy rain, strong wind, and lightning made its way into Community Field. The field was deemed unplayable and the game could not be resumed.

The Dragons (8-15) return home to begin a three-game series with the Cedar Rapids Kernels on Wednesday at Fifth Third Field, game time is 7:00 p.m.
