Reds end long night with 8-7 win over Washington Nationals

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals had wild game which ended at 12:35 Wednesday morning in Cincinnati with the home team winning, 8-7.

Rookie Mike Leake pitched five masterful innings before a long rain delay of over 2 hours Tuesday night. After the rain delay, the Reds bullpen almost blew a seven-run lead before holding off the Nationals.

Speaking of the Reds bullpen, it is about to undergo a major shakeup. The Reds management has signed Russ Springer to a minor league contract and they’ve offered Jason Isringhausen a contract. Both are former St. Louis Cardinals pitchers and have the experience the Reds need to win the division.

What they’ll probably do is put Springer and Isringhausen in the late innings with Arthur Rhodes and Francisco Cordero; move Nick Masset to the middle innings. Odd men out would be Jordan Smith and Logan Ondrusek.

Now back to Tuesday’s game.

Leake became the Reds first rookie to open a season 7-1 since Wayne Simpson in 1970. The 22-year-old gave up five hits in five innings.

Leake, who has been overshadowed by Washington’s Stephen Strasburg, leads all National League pitchers with a .385 batting average. He singled home a run in the fourth inning.

Cincinnati led 5-1 in the middle of the fifth inning, when a rainstorm forced a 2-hour, 40-minute delay. The 8-1 lead almost disappeared when Nationals offense came alive against the Reds bullpen.

Washington sent 10 batters to the plate for six runs in the sixth off relievers Micah Owings and Bill Bray. Ryan Zimmerman blasted a two-run homer and Michael Morse had a pinch-hit, bases-loaded triple.

Francisco Cordero, the Reds closer, struck out Adam Dunn to end the game.

The Reds still trail St. Louis by a half game, because the Cardinals beat Philadelphia for a second night in a row.

GAME NOTES

* 37-year-old Jason Isringhausen, who is a free agent, is trying to come back from two elbow operations in the last two years. He has throw for Reds general manager Walt Jocketty who offered him a contract.

* Syracuse Chief Chase Lambin was voted the TOP Star-MVP in the 2010 Triple-A All-Star Game in a 2-1 victory over the Pacific Coast League All-Stars. Lambin had a RBI double in the win.

Syracuse is the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

Drew Stubbs hit a two-out single in the 10th inning Sunday, driving in Jay Bruce and helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the pesky Nationals, 5-4 in Washington.

Bruce sparked the decisive rally with a single off Doug Slaten (2-1). After Laynce Nix singled, Miguel Batista replaced Slaten on the mound and Stubbs connected on another single to right.

Pinch-hitter Scott Rolen gave the Reds a 4-2 lead in the ninth inning with a two-run homer off Matt Capps, one batter after Capps allowed a tying double to pinch hitter Jonny Gomes.

Washington tied it against Reds closer Francisco Coredero (2-3) in the bottom half on pinch-hitter Michael Morse’s two-run double. It was Cordero’s fourth blown save in 20 tries.

With Milwaukee beating St. Louis in the Sunday Night baseball game on ESPN 4-3 IN 10 innings, the two teams are tied for first place in the NL Central again.
