Dontrelle Willis heads to “new beginning” in Arizona

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Detroit Tigers say they had three teams interested in trading for Dontrelle Willis and the offer from the Arizona Diamondbacks was the best.

Detroit dealt the left-handed pitcher and cash to the D-Backs for right-hander Billy Buckner who will be sent to Triple-A Toledo.

The 28-year-old Willis was designated for assignment on Sunday, giving Detroit up to 10 days to make a move with him. He is making $12 million this year and Detroit acknowledges that they’ll be paying a substanstial portion of his salary.

Willis was 1-2 with a 4.98 ERA in eight starts and one relief appearance this season. He is expected to start Saturday night against Colorado in Arizona.

He joins an Arizona team that has been in a slump all season and is ranked last in ERA at 5.89.

The former NL Rookie of the Year, All-Star and 22-game winner with Florida, helped the Marlins towards a World Championship in 2003, but failed to gain any resemblence in two-plus seasons in Detroit.

Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Jody Gerut hit for the cycle Saturday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks and the the final score was 3-2.

Gerut belted a solo home run in the second inning, singled in the 3rd, drove in a run with a triple in the fifth and added a two-run double in the ninth.

It is the sixth cycle in Brewers history and the first for Gerut, who had only one hit in his last 18 at-bats before Saturday’s game.

Chad Moeller, a catcher, was the last Brewers player to hit for the cycle. He accomplished the feat on April 27, 2004, against Cincinnati.

DETROIT TIGERS 9  CLEVELAND INDIANS 8

Carlos Guillen scored the winning run on Indians closer Chris Perez’s wild pitch, capping a three-run ninth inning and giving Detroit the win on Sunday in Motown.

The Tigers became hust the second team since 1986 to win a nine-inning game while stranding at least 18 runners. Detroit’s 18 runners left on base matched its most since 1920.

Guillen hit a one-out RBI double in the ninth to get the Tigers within one and put runners on second and third. After Brandon Inge grounded out, Perez (0-1) issued two walks in a row to Ramon Santiago and pinch-hitter Johnny Damon to force in the tying run.

His first pitch to Scott Sizemore bounced past Lou Marson, allowing Guillent to score from third base.

Phil Coke pitched a scoreless ninth for Detroit, who trailed 7-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning.

Cleveland was without centerfielder Grady Sizemore, who was out of the lineup with a stiff back. But even without their All-Star in Sizemore, the Indians battered around Justin Verlander pretty good.

The Indians loaded the bases with no outs in the first inning and Travis Hafner followed with a sacrifice fly. Jhonny Peralta then struck out, Matt LaPorta walked and Luis Valbuena lifted a 1-2 pitch just inside the right-field foul pole for his first grand slam.

Verlander settled down after the 43-pitch first inning, allowing six runs and five hits in five-plus innings, but his early struggles made the loss even tougher for Cleveland because they rarely ever score more than a couple of runs off the Tigers ace pitcher.

Indians starter Jake Westbrook pitched 5 2-3 innings, giving up three runs and nine hits. He struck out seven and walked three.

Indians offensive stars include Jhonny Peralta and Shin-soo-Choo homered  and Luis Valbuena had two hits.

Detroit was led by Maggio Ordonez with two hits and two RBI’s and Miguel Cabrera went 3 for 3 which had 18 hits on the day.

GAME NOTES

* The Seattle Mariners left 18 runners on base in a 5-2 win over San Diego on June 27, 2008.  Detroit stranded 18 runners in a 10-1 loss to the Philadelphia Athletics in 1926 and again in a 12-2 loss to the A’s in 1931.

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS 15      PITTSBURGH PIRATES 6

The Arizona Diamondbacks scored a team-record 13 runs in the fourth inning, capped by the first homer of pitcher Edwin Jackson’s career, as the delighted their fans in Phoenix with a 15-6 win over Pittsburgh on Sunday.

Chris Young and Kelly Johnson homered in the big inning.

Edwin Jackson (1-1) went into the bottom of the fourth trailing 4-2 after giving up seven hits, but allowed only three hits in three scoreless innings after that.

Jackson had two of Arizona’s eight hits in the fourth inning and became the first pitcher to score two runs in an inning since last August 14, when Randy Wells of the Cubs did it against Pittsburgh. Jackson singled early in the fourth, then finished it off with a two-run homer. With a distance of 400 feet, his homer was the longest of Arizona’s four homers.

Catcher Chris Snyder was starting because Miguel Montero was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee sprain earlier in the day, homered for Arizona and tied his career high with five RBI’s.

The Diamondbacks easily surpassed the club record of eight runs in an inning. They matched a regular-season team mark for hits, they got nine in a 2001 World Series game against the Yankees and home runs in the inning. Every D-Backs starter scored a run.

The Pittsburgh Pirates tied a team record for most runs allowed in an inning. The other times were 1890 and 1994.

Edwin Jackson, now 1-1, settled down after a rough start to win his first game with Arizona. He was an All-star last year with Detroit and was picked up in a three-team trade that sent Curtis Granderson to the Yankees.

compiled from staff and wire reports

* Arizona Diamondbacks manager A.J. Hinch has announced that pitcher Dan Haren will be the team’s opening day starter. Hinch says he probably will select Edwin Jackson as the #2 starter and Brandon Webb as the number 3. Webb’s only game action during 2009 was on opening day, and he is rehabbing his way back from shoulder surgery. Webb has been the opening day starter the last fours for the D-Backs.

* The Houston Astros have extended the contract of general manager Ed Wade through 2012. Wade, who was the Philadelphia Phillies G.M. from 1998-2005, has been with the Astros since September of 2007.

* Kansas City Royals outfielder David DeJesus told the media recently that he is fine with moving from center field to left field. During this past offseason, the Royals added Scott Posednick to play left and Rick Ankiel to play center. DeJesus has started only16 games in his seven year career.
