Omar Vizquel keeps moving up the record books; helps ChiSox beat Tribe

compiled from staff and wire reports

When Omar Vizquel joined the White Sox, he couldn’t wear his familiar and favorite number 13 because it belonged to manager Ozzie Guillen, who wouldn’t give it up. So Viquel asked his idol and fellow countryman Luis Aparicio if he could wear his retired number 11 to honor the longtime shortstop.

Aparicio said “yes” and the White Sox brought back the number, which was retired in 1984, for Vizquel to wear during the 2010 season.

The 43-year-old Vizquel received a warm ovation from Cleveland fans, who really loved and adored the 11-time Gold Glove winner during his 11 seasons playing for the Indians.

The longer Vizquel plays, the more he moves up the record books or set records himself.

Vizquel moved into a tie with the Hall of Famer for the second-most career hits by a shortstop, and Mark Teahan drove in three runs as the Chicago White Sox snapped a five-game losing streak to Cleveland by beating the Indians 7-2 Monday night.

Vizquel singled in the fifth inning off Aaron Laffey for his 2,764th hit, tying Aparicio, his Venezuelen countryman and a man that Viquel and manager Ozzie Guillen consider an “icon.”

Vizquel’s hit total as a shortstop is second only to New York Yankees star Derek Jeter, who entered the week with 2,782.

Mark Teahan hit a two-run double in Chicago’s four-run first inning off Justin Masterson (0-5), who lost his 11th straight decision. The right-hander hasn’t won in 16 starts since August 20.

John Danks (4-3) was the winner for the White Sox.

Harang uses arm, leg and bat to beat Pittsburgh, 7-5

compiled from staff and wire reports

Aaron Harang is paid to pitch and win ball games for the Cincinnati Reds. But every once in a while his hitting and running the bases will come in handy.

Monday night, Harang scored all the way from first base that highlighted Cincinnati’s winning rally. Harang singled home the go-ahead run, then chugged around the bases to score another run during a five-run fourth inning, leading the Reds to a 7-5 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Left-hander Brian Burres (2-2) walked the first two batters in the fourth inning to start the pivotal rally, losing all sense of the strike zone.

Ryan Hanigan grounded into a double play that produced one run and gave Burres a chance to escape without much damage. But he fell behind 3-0 to Harang, an ).90 career hitter. He took a pitch, then lined a fastball to left field for a hit for a 3-2 lead.

Harang was at first base on a muggy, 84-degree night, not knowing what was about to happen. Orlando Cabrera, the next batter, doubled to the gap in left-center and the 6-foot-7, 260-pound Harang got moving expecting to stop at third but Reds 3B coach Mark Berry kept waving him home and he scored as the high throw from shortstop Ronny Cedeno on the relay home was high to catcher Ryan Doumit who tagged Harang on his belt going by.

Harang (3-5) had enough stamina to go 6 1/3 innings allowing only 4 runs on 114 pitches.

Left-hander Arthur Rhodes pitched the eighth, extending his scoreless-innings streak to 16 1/3 innings. Francisco Cordero earned his 15th save in the ninth.

The Reds have won three of four and seven of their last 10, keeping them in a back-and-forth race with St. Louis for the first place in the NL Central. The win on Monday moved them into a first place tie with the Cardinals at 26-19.

They’ve won all four games against the Pirates in May, including a three-game sweep May 10-12 in Pittsburgh.

For the journeyman Leighton, who was claimed by the Flyers on waivers in December, it was his third shutout in this series. He is 5-1 since taking over after Brian Boucher was hurt in the second round.

The Flyers who have won seven of eight since falling behind Boston 3-0 in the previous round, lead the Canadiens 3-1 and can advance to the finals for the first time since 1977 with a win at home in Game 5 on Monday.
