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.

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. HeĀ  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.

Former NFL player and Georgia Tech star Nick Rogers has died in a on-car accident. He was 30.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner’s office says that Rogers was killed about 1:30 a.m. Monday when his car hit a utility pole in College Park, a suburb of Atlanta.

Rogers had 16 1/2 sacks as a defensive end at Georgia Tech and was drafted in the sixth round in 2002.

Rogers, a 250-pound linebacker, spent four years in the NFL with Green Bay, Indianapolis, Miami and Minnesota.

He started 16 games in each of two seasons with the Vikings in 2002-2003. The next season he was with the Packers for 10 games and the Colts for one. His final NFL season was 2005, when he played three games with the Miami Dolphins.

Rogers most recently played for Colorado of the Arena Football League in 2008.

Staff Writer Dan Hock (file photo)

COLUMBUS, OHIO–The Columbus Clippers concluded a 6-4 homestand with a 7-5 triumph over the Syracuse Chiefs in the series finale. A seventh inning home run by Shelley Duncan snapped a 4-4 tie in the 7th inning en route to winning the series over the Chiefs and taking three of four games in the process.

Duncan, who hit a two-run homer in the first to help the Clippers build an early 4-1 lead, homered off veteran lefty Ron Villone after Trevor Crowe opened the bottom of the 7th inning with a leadoff double. Crowe moved to third on a fly ball from Jason Donald. Carlos Santana walked to set the stage for Duncan’s heroics.

Duncan, who was 4-for-4 on the day, drilled a pitch over the leftfield wall. He finished the game with 5 RBI’s and scored 2 runs and his four hits were part of a 12-hit attack by Columbus.

The Clippers started lefty Mike Gosling, making his first start of 2010 in place of scheduled starter Carlos Carrasco. Gosling last pitched April 30th against charlotte and went 3 innings in relief. “I had hoped to get three innings from him, but I asked Mike if he could go another inning and he said yes,” said manager Mike Sarbaugh when asked what he expected of his emergency starter. “He gave his best effort and that’s all you can ask.”

Columbus had not hit a home run as a team in the past four games before hitting three in today’s win. Chris Gimenez hit a two-run homer in the first inning.

Syracuse cut the Columbus lead to 4-2 in the second inning and tied the score at 4-4 before Columbus behind the three-run homer from Duncan put the Clippers ahead to stay. Saul Rivera posted a save in one inning of relief in striking out two hitters for his 4th save of 2010.

Columbus will now embark on a two city eight game road trip to through Pennsylvania; Lehigh Valley and Scranton before returning to Columbus for a four-game set with the Durham Bulls starting May 14th.
