White Sox beat Indians on Pierzynski’s homer

Manny Ramirez was on-deck ready to make his White Sox debut but A.J. Pierzynski, batting ahead of him, won the game.

A.J. Pierzynski hit a tie-breaking, three-run homer off reliever Frank Herrmann in the ninth inning to lift the  Chicago White Sox to a 4-3 win over the Cleveland Indians Tuesday night. Pierzynski has been hot during his 10-game hitting streak, .386 average (17 for 43) with nine RBI’s.

Starting pitcher Edwin Jackson, now 3-0, also starred for the ChiSox. The right-hander, acquired from Arizona in a trade before the deadline in July, struck out 10 and allowed seven hits in 8 2/3 innings to help the Chicago keep pressure on the first-place Minnesota Twins in the AL Central Division.

Jackson is the first White Sox starter with 10-plus strikeouts in three straight starts since LHP Floyd Bannister in 1985.

Ramirez, wearing Number 99, will be in Chicago’s lineup on Wednesday afternoon’s game batting fifth as the DH.

Reds beat Milwaukee, 8-4; NL Central lead at 7; Chapman debuts & Votto stars

There were so many positives in Tuesday night’s Reds 8-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds now lead the NL Central by 7 games over slumping St. Louis; they won without the services of Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce; and the Aroldis Chapman’s long-anticpated major league debut.

Cincinnati wrapped up the best August by any team and was able to move 7 games up on the Cardinals, who lost to Houston 3-0. The Reds haven’t led by as many games since 1995, the last time they reached the playoffs.

Joey Votto (MLB)

Joey Votto drove in three runs with a pair of doubles off Milwaukee’s ace pitcher, Yovani Gallardo who drops to 11-7. The slugging first baseman now has 97 on the season. Sam LeCure, another one of the Reds young arms, picked up the win in relief of Aaron Harang, who struggled in his return from back spasms. Le Cure is now 2-4.

The crowd was happy to see Number 54, Aroldis Chapman jogging to the mound from the bullpen to pitch the top of the eighth with the Reds up 8-3.

There was no nervousness from Chapman as the 22-year-old made quick work of the Brewers batters. Jonathan Lucroy saw pitches of 98 mph, 102 and 86 and struck out. Chapman got Craig Counsell and pinch-hitter Carlos Gomez to ground out on weak ground balls. The tall lefty was between 98-102 with all three hitters.

GAME NOTES

* In order to put Aaron Harang and Aroldis Chapman on the active roster, Cincinnati put outfielder Laynce Nix on the 15-day DL  with a sprained left ankle, which he hurt August 23 in San Francisco.  They optioned right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez to Class-A Dayton to make at least two starts. They say he has to work out his delivery problems.

Japan ended United States’ teams’ five-year reign as World Series champions. The team from Tokyo used its pitching to limit Waipahu, Hawaii, to four singles.

The Japanese were led by Konan Tomori who had a home run, and three RBI’s and captured the Little League World Series title with a 4-1 win on Sunday.

It marked the first time a Japanese team has won the title since 2003. Waipahu won the title in 2008.

Ryusuke Ikeda earned the win, pitching three innings, allowing four hits and striking five. Ichiro Ogasawara pitched the final three innings, striking out three batters.
