Shin-Soo Choo, Mitch Talbot lead Tribe over Reds; win ends skid


CINCINNATI, OHIO — The Cleveland Indians ought to play the Cincinnati Reds with only Shin-Soo Choo and Mitch Talbot. Maybe those two can win games as a duo.

Just kidding of course, two men can’t beat nine but it sure looked that way on Sunday.

Shinn-Soo Choo Indians (mlb)

Shin-Soo Choo was named by the media the Ohio Cup series Most Outstanding Player after batting .391 (9-23) with 4 homers and 7 RBI’S in 6 games.

Great American Ball Park (

Shin Soo-Choo homered twice off Bronson Arroyo, the second time he’s accomplished that this season and the Cleveland Indians ended their seven-game losing streak on Sunday, beating the Cincinnati Reds 5-3.

Choo belted a solo homer in the first inning and a three-run shot in the fifth off Arroyo (7-4), who can’t seem to get him out. Choo homered twice off Arroyo on May 21 during the Reds 7-4 win in Cleveland.

All told, Choo is 6 for 12 against Arroyo and always sees the ball good against him.

Vote Reds into the All-Star Game (

Indians rookie Mitch Talbot (8-6) held the NL’s most prolific lineup to three harmless singles in seven innings.

The right-handed Talbot is one of the American League’s best pitcher’s on the road. He retired 12 in a row over one stretch in the game.

Kerry Wood, struck out the side in the ninth inning for his sixth save in nine tries, ending the Reds’ five-game winning streak.

Wins against the National League are rare and hard to come by for the Indians. They completed the 2010 interleague schedule at 5-13 and 2-4 against their Interstate 71 rivals, the Cincinnati Reds. Cincinnati has dominated the series as of late, going 13-5 over the last three years.

The Reds are still a 1/2 game ahead of St. Louis, who lost again to Kansas City in the “Show-Me State” series of Missouri.

The start of the game was delayed 1 hour and 21 minutes by a storm. The game started at 2:31 p.m.
