Skip Schumaker St. Louis (MLB)

St. Louis sent 12 batters to the plate for seven runs in the fourth inning, giving rookie Mike Leake (7-4)  a nightmare as he suffered one of his worst pitching performances of the season. Schumaker’s grand slam, made it 6-o. He has only 19 major league homers.

Chris Carpenter (13-3) has beaten the Reds in every start since 2006. He allowed five hits and a pair of runs in the seventh inning.

A crowd of 36,353 was all fired up for one of the biggest series in Great American Ball Park’s eight-year history. The Cincinnati Reds haven’t been in first place this late in a season since 1999 when they were still playing in Cinergy Field. They haven’t been to the playoffs since 1995; haven’t won a world championship since 1990 and haven’t had a winning season since 2000. So in this 2010 season, the Reds are trying end at least two of those streaks, getting to the playoffs and having a winning record.

Behind those three football teams are Drake (54 points), San Diego (52), Marist (45), Davidson (30), Campbell (25), Morehead State (22) and Valparaiso (9). Nine points were awarded for a first-place vote, with one point less for each succeeding place. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.

Valentino was named to The Sports Network’s Payton Award Watch List.

Offensive guard Tyler Friedrich was also on the first team. Wide receiver Justin Watkins was on the second team and center Justin Griffis was Honorable Mention All-PFL.
