MLB ROUNDUP: Reds beat Florida and tie Cardinals; Indians lose to Seattle


After getting hammered by St. Louis on Monday night, Reds rookie right-hander Mike Leake (8-4) got back on the winning track by beating the Florida Marlins, 5-4.

The Reds also went to 2-0 under bench coach Chris Speier, who was the acting manager due to major league baseball’s two-game suspension of manager Dusty Baker for the altercation with St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa on Tuesday night.

Mike Leake’ s control wasn’t great allowing three walks, six hits, three runs had six strikeouts in six innings. He also gave up two homers to Dan Uggla and Wes Helms, but he helped himself with an RBI and he got help from Drew Stubbs hitting his 15th homer for the eventual game-deciding run in helping the Reds move into a first place tie in the NL Central with St. Louis who lost to the Chicago Cubs.

The Reds bullpen was shaky but held onto the lead. Arthur Rhodes allowed two batters to reach base in the seventh before Nick Masset came on to pitch two shutout innings. Reds closer Francisco Cordero earned his 31st save but not before needing a double-play and a pop-up to escape a bases-loaded, nobody-out jam.


The Cleveland Indians made to crucial errors, both by Andy Marte at third base in a 9-3 loss to Seattle.

Losing pitcher Mitch Talbot, now 8-10, making his first start since coming off the disabled list, opened the fifth by giving up a first-pitch home run to former Indian Russell Branyan, who with his 15th homer put the Mariners up 3-2.

Jason Vargas (MLB)

Another former Indian Josh Bard blasted a grand slam homer also in the fifth inning to blow the game open.

Seattle lefty Jason Vargas was the winning pitcher, he’s now 9-5.

Gomez goes to 3-0 as Indians cool down Orioles, 4-1

The Cleveland Indians keep saying that Jeanmar Gomez is not ready for to be a regular rotation pitcher in the majors yet.

Well, I don’t know about that. In four starts, he is 3-0 with a 1.54 ERA.

Thursday night he pitched six innings and gave up one run in helping Cleveland beat Baltimore, 4-1.

The only run he gave up to Baltimore came in the sixth inning, when Josh Bell led off with a ringing double to center and scored two outs later on a Ty Wigginton single. Only one other batter reached second base against Gomez. He retired 12 in a row between the last out of the first inning and second out of the fifth inning.

The Indians had several stars in the win. Closer Chris Perez closed out the game quickly for his 14th save of the season. Michael Brantley tied a career-best with four hits. Andy Marte had two hits and Asdrubal Cabrera reached base four times with two hits, a walk and a hit by pitch.

Crowe, one of Cleveland’s up-and-coming stars, came through in the seventh with a tie-breaking single against reliever Phil Coke (5-1).
