Exhibition Baseball: Indians 6 Texas Rangers 5


Two players who are trying to make the Cleveland Indians 25-man roster for the 2014 season, helped their causes with solid play yesterday.

Outfielder Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-3 highlighted by a 2-run single in the top of the first inning and shortstop Elliott Johnson collected three hits in the Tribe’s 6-5 win over the Texas Rangers in Surprise, Arizona.

The Indians had 11 hits and did not allow Rangers’ starting pitcher Colby Lewis out of the first inning.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Reds and Indians lose

Los Angeles Dodgers 6 Cincinnati Reds 2

You knew rookie Mike Leake was not going to win every game he pitched. After all, he is playing Major League Baseball.

Andre Eithier hit a home run, his first since breaking a finger and Clayton Kershaw outpitched Mike Leake, in leading the Dodgers over the slumping Reds in Cincinnati Wednesday night.

Kershaw (7-3) won a matchup of  talented and promising 22-year-old starting pitchers, giving up one run and seven hits in 71/3 innings.

The Dodgers are 25-6 against the Reds since 2006, a team they’ve beaten with ease. LA  has won the first two games of the series by a combined 18-2, shutting down the NL’s most prolific offense.

The Reds have been in first place in the NL Central for the last 10 days, the Reds have struggled to 3-6 on the current homestand which concludes on Thursday.

Both Scott Rolen and Reds manager Dusty Baker were ejected for arguing a strike three call in the sixth inning by home plate umpire Hunter Wendelstedt.

New York Mets 8  Cleveland Indians 4

Just as Mike Leake absorbed his first loss after starting the season in sensational fashion, Cleveland Indians rookie starter Mitch Talbot turned in the worst start of the season, allowing season highs in runs (eight) and hits (13). Talbot’s ERA jumped from 3.59 to 4.21. He and fellow rookie catcher Carlos Santana didn’t seem to be on the same page when pitches were being called for 5 2/3 innings.

The Mets used four straight doubles to take a 5-0 lead in the second inning. After Talbot retired Jeff Francoeur to start the inning, Reuben Tejada and Jose Reyes singled. Angel Pagan, David Wright, Ike Davis and Jason Bay followed with doubles to left or left-center field. They went on to beat the Indians in Cleveland.

Mets lefty Jonathon Niese was the winner, he’s 4-2.
