Indians lose in the 11th on a game-winning bunt by Tampa Bay

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Tampa Bay Rays showed the Cleveland Indians the difference between a contending team and a rebuilding team. Winning teams seem to get the breaks in close games on plays at the bases, ball and strike calls.

Case in point, John Jaso had a controversial infield single with one-out in the 11th that the umpire said he beat out, but the replays showed otherwise. Indians manager Manny Acta told umpire Jerry Layne at first base that Jaso was out. Layne said the runner beat the throw.

Jaso went to third on Gabe Kapler’s hit-and-run single to right.

Jason Bartlett laid down a sacrifice bunt to drive in the winning run in the 11th as the Rays beat the Cleveland Indians 4-3 Monday night.

Bartlett placed the bunt to the first base side of the mound that pitcher Jamey Wright fielded and was forced to make a desperation toss from his glove hand towards the plate that went over Mike Redmond’s head.

Andy Sonnanstine (1-0), the sixth Tampa Bay reliever, struck out two during a perfect 11th, helping the Rays improve to a major league-best 27-11 this season.

Trevor Crowe, filling in for injured center fielder Grady Sizemore, put the Indians up 3-2 with an RBI single during the sixth. The Rays pulled even at 3 on Hank Blalock’s two-out, run-scoring single off reliever Chris Perez in the eighth.

First-place Reds beat slumping Milwaukee Brewers, 6-3

compiled from staff and wire reports

Jonny Gomes is one of many heroes for the Reds who has come up big in 2010. Monday night he made sure the Reds did not have just a one-day sniff of first place.

Gomes capped a five-run rally in the seventh inning by blasting a three-run homer, and the Reds earned themselves a second straight day in first place by beating the Milwaukee Brewers 6-3.

Gomes’ homer off of former Red Todd Coffey (1-1) sent the Reds to their eighth victory in nine games, a hot streak that moved them into the top spot in the National League Central, a place they haven’t been this deep into a season since 2006.

Johnny Cueto (mlb)

Johnny Cueto (3-1) fanned seven and gave up seven hits in seven innings, including Corey Hart’s solo homer.

The slumping Brewers lost their season-high seventh straight, one that followed a familiar pattern, the bullpen gave the game away.

Milwaukee is a horrifying 4-4 at home, the worst start in club history. They lost to the Philadelphia Phillies  4-2 in the Sunday night Baseball Game on ESPN, competing an 0-6 homestand. They made the short flight to Cincinnati, landed at 3:00 a.m. and got very little sleep before taking on a hot Reds team.

Reds come up winners again in signing Cuban talent, Felix Perez

compiled by staff, wire and Cincinnati Reds reports

The Cincinnati Reds have signed outfielder Felix Perez to a minor league contract, two years after he defected from Cuba.

The 25-year-old Perez was suspended for a year by Major League Baseball for falsifying age records when he was negotiating with the New York Yankees. The Reds have given him a $550,000 signing bonus.

Cuban Flag (file)

The Reds plan to send Perez, currently in the  Dominican Republic, to their spring training base in Goodyear, Arizona, to get a better feel for where he’ll fit in; be in rookie ball or Class A in Dayton or Lynchburg.

This is the second Cuban defector that the Reds have signed. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman was signed earlier this year.

IN OTHER TOUR NEWS

Singh slipped to number 51 in the world rankings made public on Monday after he failed to qualify for the final 36 holes at the Valero Texas Open. It was his fifth consecutive tournament without earning ranking points.

Vijay Singh (PGA)

The last time Singh was ranked out of the top 50 was August 16, 1992. He won the German Open the next week and has been in the top 50 every week since. Singh is the only other player besides Tiger Woods to be number 1 in the world during the last decade, reaching  the top for the first time in 2004.

Singh will have one week to get back into the top 50 or he will have to qualify for the U.S. Open.

Marion Jones makes WNBA debut; Tulsa Loses to Minnesota Lynx

compiled from staff, wire and Tulsa Shock info

Marion Jones arrived at the soldout BOK Center, home of the Tulsa Shock, where video cameras were waiting on her to get pictures of her as she walked in. Minutes later, she walked into an interview room to answer questions from reporters.

Then she went to the team shootaround and afterwards, she was so hyped-up that she couldn’t take a pregame nap.

But Marion Jones’ path to star-status in the WNBA will take awhile to achieve.

Marion Jones (WNBA)

The former Olympic track star had very limited playing time in her debut for the Tulsa Shock on Saturday night as the relocated from Detroit, Michigan team lost their inaugural game in their new hometown of  Tulsa, Oklahoma, to the Minnesota Lynx, 80-74.

There was an overflow crowd of 7,806, which included WNBA commissioner Donna Orender who flew in to welcome Tulsa and their fans to the league and to see Marion Jones.

After the game, Marion Jones told reporters, ” I am learning as I go. I know it will take time for the game to come together for me. I will do whatever it takes to win games for the ballclub.”

Jones, who won a national championship for North Carolina in college, made her  return to basketball after more than a decade away. After college, she was a world-wide track star and then was stripped of her five Olympic track medals, including three golds, and served time in prison for lying to federal investigators.

Jones’ played only 3 minutes and 19 seconds and watched most of the action from the bench. She committed one foul  just 3 seconds into her new career.

At 34-years-old, Jones is the oldest rookie in the WNBA and her debut received more media attention than most first-year players.
