Baseball is Back! Reds, Indians tie 6-6; Rolen gets 2 hits for Cincinnati


Scott Rolen

Drew Stubbs

Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen’s shoulder was no problem as he went 2 for 2 in his return from shoulder surgery which caused him to miss the final two months of last season in the team’s 6-6, nine-inning tie Saturday afternoon in the exhibition opener.

A seven-time All-Star, the 36-year-old Rolen did not play after July 20, 2011 and had arthroscopic surgery August 3 to remove bone spurs and fragments from a joint in his left shoulder.

Cleveland built a 4-0 lead in the first three innings against Reds starter Mike Leake and Ron Mahay. However, the Reds tied the game with four runs in the fourth off Frank Herrman.

The Reds started the inning against Herrman with a double. Jay Bruce knocked in an RBI infield single, Drew Stubbs banged out a two-run double and Devin Mesoraco tied it with a single.

Neftali Soto homered in the fifth inning against Robinson Tejada for a 5-4 Reds lead.

Todd Frazier, who can play all infield positions and LF & RF, cracked a solo homer in the bottom of the ninth off Chen Lee.

David Huff

Michael Brantley

The Indians had a couple of stars in left-handed pitcher David Huff and centerfielder Michael Brantley.

Huff, who started the game and in a competition with four candidates for the fifth spot in the Cleveland starting rotation, allowed three hits in two scoreless innings.

Brantley, who was going to start in left until Grady Sizemore got hurt earlier in the week, doubled and singled for a 2-for-3 day.

Indians’ Choo on rehab assignment at Lake County

Cleveland Indians outfielder Shin-Soo Choo began a rehab assignment with Class A Lake County of the Midwest League on Monday night as he returns from a broken left thumb.

Choo has been on the disabled list since June 25. He has been taking batting practice in recent days and has been cleared for full baseball activities.

The Indians obviously would like to get his bat back in their regular lineup and his glove back in the outfield to team with recently-acquired Kosuke Fukudome and Michael Brantley.

Carrasco, Indians, shut out Yankees, 1-0


The Cleveland Indians have been in a slump which happens to all teams in pro sports.

On Monday, they receive a huge pitching performance by one of their young players, Carlos Carrasco who shut down the New York Yankees, 1-0 in Yankee Stadium.

Carrasco allowed five hits in seven innings. He was followed to the mound by Tony Sipp, Vinnie Pestano and Chris Perez to lead the Indians over the Yankees to avoid a series sweep and end a four-game losing streak.

The win was only the second in the last 11 games for the young Indians who are suddenly in a pennant race with the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central Division.

Due to the recent slump, Indians manager Manny Acta changed his batting order which had several players hitting where they are not used to hitting.

Michael Brantley batted third for the first time in the major leagues. Asdrubal Cabrera hit cleanup for the first time in his career. Brantley produced a leadoff triple in the fourth inning and Cabrera scored him with a single to left against losing pitcher A.J. Burnett (6-5). That was the only lead that Cleveland could muster in the four-game series.

New York Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter keeps inching towards the 3,000 hit mark. His first inning single puts him at 2,994. He left the game in the fifth inning because of a strained right calf.
