Key members of Indians bullpen hurt; Closer Perez (shoulder), longman Hermann (ligament)

One of the Cleveland Indians strengths in 2012 was their bullpen.

They feel that it’ll stay that way in 2013, but there are a couple of key personnel that have come up hurt as Spring Training camp continues.

All-Star closer Chris Perez could miss a month due to a strained right throwing shoulder.

Long reliever Frank Hermann suffered a sprained ligament in his throwing elbow on Monday. It is not known how long he will be out of action.

Perez saved 39 games last season and Hermann has a career record of 4.26 ERA with 72 strikeouts.

MLB UPDATE: Reds and Indians Sunday results

Atlanta at Cincinnati

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips made the most of very few scoring opportunities for the Reds on Sunday.

Phillips hit a tying triple with two-out in the fifth inning and scored the tie-breaking run on shortstop Alex Gonzalez’s error, helping Cincinnati win the rubber game of the weekend series over Atlanta, 2-1.

Ramon Hernandez was on first base when Phillips hit a high a fly ball down the right-field line that just eluded a diving Jason Heyward and bounded into the corner.

Orlando Cabrera followed with a routine grounder to Gonzalez, but the former Reds shortstop dropped the ball, allowing Phillips to score while Cabrera easily beat the throw to first base.

The NL East- leading Braves have lost three of four and went 3-6 on their 10-day road trip, winning one game in each city.

The Reds have won three of four and remained a half-game behind the St. Louis Cardinals who swept Pittsburgh with a 9-1 win on Sunday.

Edinson Volquez (2-1) was the winning pitcher. He was wild in five innings, walking five and hitting a batter but gave up just one run, three hits, struck out seven on 96 pitches in just his fourth start since undergoing elbow surgery last August.

The Reds bullpen was solid again with Jordan Smith, Bill Bray and Nick Masset each pitching one inning. Closer Francisco Cordero finished for his 29th save.

There were 40,871 at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. The third sellout of the series, put the total at 122,855, the most for a three-game weekend series since the park opened in 2003.

Cleveland at Toronto

Asdrubal Cabrera belted a two-run homer, Jason Donald added a solo shot and the Indians beat the Blue Jays 5-4, their sixth win in seven games against Toronto.

Major League home run leader Jose Bautista (#32), Aaron Hill and Yunel Escobar all blasted solo homers for Toronto, but the Jays lost for the ninth time in 13 home games against the young Indians.

With all of the recent trades by Cleveland lately, Travis Hafner and Shelley Duncan are the only players over the age of 30 and Asdrubal Cabrera is 24. All three are considered leaders of the team.

Jeanmar Gomez (Clippers photo)

For the second time in three weeks, right-hander Jeanmar Gomez (2-0) came through for Cleveland after being called up from Triple-A Columbus. Working on three days rest, Gomez threw 85 pitches, allowed two runs on five hits, walked two and struck out two.

Five Indians relievers preserved the win: Tony Sipp, Frank Hermann, Rafael Perez, Joe Smith and Chris Perez, the new closer, picked up his 12th save.

Toronto leads the majors in home runs with 161 and have hit one in 13 consecutive games, blasting 31 during that time frame.

Columbus started off quick with some early offense as Shelley Duncan and Brian Buscher each hit RBI singles in the 1st inning for a 2-0 lead that would be expanded upon in the 2nd inning. Jason Donald tripled home a pair of runs and then scored on a Carlos Santana double for a 5-0 lead that the Chiefs would never seriously threatened.
