Clippers use first inning to put game away early, 8-2

Info courtesy of the Columbus Clippers

The Columbus Clippers only needed one inning Saturday night to extend their current winning streak to five games, winning game two of a four-game series against the Gwinnett Braves, 8-2. There were 10,000 delightful fans at Huntington Park.

After falling behind 1-0, the Clippers responded with a seven-run opening inning. The big frame featured two-run singles from both Jordan Brown and Wes Hodges, an RBI double from Cord Phelps and a two run double from Michael Brantley (his second hit of the inning).

The Clippers added another run in the third inning, when Lou Marson hit his second home run as a Clipper in 2010 on his 24th birthday.

The big offensive output was for Jeanmar Gomez, who allowed two runs on seven hits with four strikeouts over six innings of pitching, his record improves to 5-7.

Carlton Smith and Jess Todd pitched three innings of scoreless relief for the Clippers.

The game was briefly delayed in the bottom of the eighth inning because of lightning in the area.

Reds win Ohio Cup again by rallying past Tribe, 6-4


CINCINNATI, OHIO –The Ohio Cup is a trophy that is sponsored by the Ohio Lottery for the two baseball series between the Reds and Indians each season.

The shiny cup will be spending another year in the southwestern part of the state but the Reds say its nice to win it, but winning games period is their goal.

The first-place Reds lead by Laynce Nix who singled home Jay Bruce with the tiebreaking run in the bottom of the sixth inning Saturday night and came around to score himself on a jarring dive into home , rallying the Reds to their fifth straight win, 6-4 over the Cleveland Indians.

Nix’s line-shot single off Justin Masterson (2-7) was the turning point in a ragged game on a hot, humid and muggy night. Cincinnati held on for its fourth win in five games this season against their younger intrastate rivals.

The game had quite a nice twist to it. Cleveland’s second baseman Jayson Nix and Reds left fielder Laynce Nix started together in a big-league game for the first time. They’re one of eight sets of brothers currently in the major leagues. The Indians claimed Jayson Nix off the waiver wire from the White Sox on Thursday.

Cincinnati has moved back into first place in the NL Central, a half-game ahead of St. Louis. The Cardinals won at Kansas City earlier in the day, 5-3.

The Cincinnati Reds haven’t been in first so late in a season since 1999, the last time they made a serious run at the postseason.

The Reds received good bullpen work from Micah Owings, Daniel Ray Herrera, Arthur Rhodes, Nick Masset and Francisco Cordero. Herrera was the winner (1-3) and Cordero picked up his 20th save.

WORLD CUP SOCCER: Ghana eliminates the United States

compiled from staff, wire and US Soccer news

Asamoah Gyan scored in the third minute of extra time Saturday to give Ghana a 2-1 win over the United States that makes it only the third African nation to reach the World Cup elite eight or quarterfinals.

The teams were tied at 1-1 through 90 minutes at Royal Bafokeng Stadium before Gyan ran onto a long pass and held off defenders Carlos Bocanegra and Jay DeMerit to smash a left-footed shot over goalkeeper Tim Howard from about 12 years.

Ghana will now meet Uraguay at Soccer City on Friday.

Kevin-Prince Boateng had put Ghana ahead in the fifth minute with a low shot from the edge of the area. He ran into space that opened as DeMerit kept retreating, then sent a shot that beat the diving Howard at his near post side.

Landon Donovan equalized the game in the 62nd- minute with a penalty shot after Jonathan Mensah got his second yellow card of the tournament, ruling him out of the quarterfinals, for taking out Clint Dempsey’s legs as he broke from into goal area.

It was Donovan’s U.S.-record fifth goal at the World Cup and 45th in international football.

Cristie Kerr’s lead at LPGA Championship grows to 8 after Saturday’s round

compiled from staff and wire reports

Cristie Kerr has been on a roll all season long. She’s posted three top–three finishes, including winning the State Farm Classic two weeks ago.

So there is no surprise that she is holding an eight-stroke lead after three rounds in the LPGA Championship in Pittsford, New York.

Kerr has had great focus all week and it was definitely evident during a rain-soaked round at the Locust Hill Country Club, where she went 13-under 203 entering the final round on Sunday. If she wins, it’ll be her second major title.

Kerr’s advantage tops the previous largest entering the final round of the LPGA Championship, Mickey Wright led by seven in 1961 on her way to a title.

Kerr fell just short of matching the largest 54-hole lead at an LPGA major set by Babe Zaharias, who had a 10-stroke lead at the 1954 U.S. Women’s Open.

Mika Miyazato double-bogeyed number 18 to finish at 72 and fall into a three-way tie for second with rookie Azahara Munoz and Jimin Kang after both finished with 70′s in the LPGA Tour’s second major of the year.
