Reds rally from 7-3 deficit; score 8 runs in last two innings to defeat Arizona, 11-7

A seldom-used sqeeze bunt, a 40-year-old and a rookie game the Cincinnati Reds an 11-7 win over the rebuilding Arizona Diamondbacks.

The win by the Reds moved them to a three-game lead over the slumping St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. The Brewers defeated the Cardinals 3-2 in Busch Stadium.

Jim Edmonds (MLB)

Manager Dusty Baker called the squeeze play in the ninth-inning with 40-year-old Jim Edmonds on third base. Edmonds hustled all the way home as pinch-hitter Chris Heisey perfectly executed the bunt that scored the go-ahead run. Heisey’s bunt was so perfect that he beat it out for an infield single. That play helped Cincinnati rally from a four-run deficit on Wednesday night.

The Reds trailing 7-3 in the top of the eighth inning, scored four runs in the eighth and ninth innings before the smallest crowd in Arizona history, 15,509.

Arizona’s bullpen was the team’s Achilles’ heel in the back-and-forth game that also saw some bad defense. Reliever Sam Demel allowed four runs in the top of the eighth on four straight hits. Aaron Heilman, the losing pitcher came on to relieve Demel and gave up an RBI double in the eighth before allowing the winning run in the ninth and three more to score after that.

The win was the Reds 35th come-from-behind win of 2010. Arthur Rhodes (4-3) pitched a scoreless eighth to get the win.

Chris Heisey (MLB)

The D-Backs rallied from a 3-1 deficit with four runs in the fifth off Reds starter Edinson Volquez. The right-hander was making his seventh start since returning from Tommy John surgery July 17 and struggled with his control throughout the game.

Volquez allowed a two-run homer by Chris Young to put Arizona up 5-3. Reds reliever Jordan Smith gave up a two-run homer to Adam LaRoche to make it 7-3 latter in the game.

2010 MLB ALL-STAR GAME: National League 2 American League 1

compiled from staff, wire and MLB news

The American League All-Stars have dominated baseball’s mid-summer classic since 1996, putting together a 12-0-1 record the past 13 years.

Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said all along that he was going to play to win the 2010 game and end the drought. His substitute players led the team to victory.

Atlanta catcher Brian McCann, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the fifth inning, hit a three-run double off Chicago’s Matt Thornton with  two out in the seventh inning for a 3-1 win at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California.

The win gives the National League home field advantage in the World Series for the first time since 2003.

Phil Hughes, one of eight Yankees on the American League team, started the seventh inning and ended up the loser.

Cincinnati Reds 3b Scott Rolen and St. Louis’ Matt Halliday hit consecutive one-out singles to put runners on first and third. Thornton came on in relief of Hughes and got Arizona D-Backs outfielder Chris Young to pop up. But, Thornton loaded the bases by walking crosstown rival Marlon Byrd of the Cubs.

McCann, playing in his fifth All-Star Game, fouled off some pitches and took a few close ones before hitting a fastball for a double to right, clearing the bases.

Washington’s Matt Capps, who recorded one out in the sixth inning, was the winning pitcher. McCann was named the game’s MVP.

Dodgers’ right-handed closer Jonathan Broxton worked the ninth for the save. He was helped out of a jam by a very strong throw from right-fielder Marlon Byrd to force Boston’s David Ortiz at second base on a looping liner by John Buck of Toronto for the second out.

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.
