MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL: Reds beat Cubs; Indians lose to Royals

Staff writer Dan Hock also contributed to this story


When the Reds were swept by the St. Louis Cardinals earlier this month, most of the so-called baseball experts were saying that the Reds were done for good. At the time, the Cardinals took over the NL Central Division lead by a 1/2 game.

Since that sweep at Great American Ball Park, the Reds have won 11 of 15, including a 6-3 record on a recent trip out west to Arizona, Los Angeles and San Francisco. They have taken control of the division and now leads by 5 games. They’ll go St. Louis for the last three games in the season series next weekend.

In Cincinnati’s most recent game on Sunday, Kosuke Fukudome’s homer tied the game for Chicago in the top of the eighth inning at 5-5. But he quickly went from temporary hero to permanent goat in the bottom of the eighth inning as his throw went into a dugout booth that completed the Reds’ season-long dominance over the Cubs at 13 wins and 4 losses.

The Reds beat the Cubs on Sunday at Great American Ball Park, 7-5.

Cincinnati with the win now has a five-game lead in the NL Central, their biggest lead since the 2002 season, due to the fact that the St. Louis Cardinals lost to Washington 4-2 Sunday evening.

Fukudome’s two-run homer off of Arthur Rhodes tied the game at 5-5. But his throw from right field took a bad hop and went into a photographer’s booth behind third base, letting the go-ahead run to score off losing pitcher Sean Marshall, who is 6-5.

Rookie reliever Logan Ondrusek, now 4-0 is the winner. He stopped a Cubs’ potential big rally in the eighth inning. Francisco Cordero pitched the ninth for his 35th save in 41 chances, including 11 in a row.

Jay Bruce was another star of the game, banging out his fourth homer of the series, a solo shot off Cubs rookie starter Casey Coleman, who pitched six innings, giving up eight hits and he was constantly under pressure as the Reds made him throw strikes.

The Reds matched their season high at 20 games over .500 (75-55). They haven’t been 21 games above since 1999, the last time they were a playoff contending team. If you recall, Cincinnati lost a one-game playoff to the New York Mets for the National League wild card berth in 1999.


* A statue of Cubs Hall of Fame outfielder Billy Williams will be unveiled Wednesday September 7th before the Cubs-Houston Astros game at Wrigley Field. The statue’s location will be on the corner of Addison and Sheffield Avenues.

* The Chicago Cubs used six rookie pitchers in an August 18th, 5-1 loss to the San Diego Padres. According to Major League Baseball, it is the first time this has been done in a game before September callups dating back to 1957, when  Major League Baseball first defined a rookie.

The six rookie pitchers are: starting pitcher Casey Coleman, who took the loss; James Russell, Thomas Diamond, Justin Berg, Marcus Mateo and Andrew Cashner.

* Lefthanded reliever James Russell of the Cubs is the son of former major league pitcher Jeff Russell.

Jeff Russell pitched for the Cincinnati Reds in his major league career in addition to the Texas Rangers.


Kila Ka’aihue knocked in the go-ahead double in the seventh inning to help Bruce Chen and the Kansas City Royals to a 6-2 Sunday win over the Cleveland Indians.

The 33-year-old left-handed Chen, with his 1oth major league team since 1998, allowed two runs and six hits in six innings on the mound. He’s now 9-7 on the season.

The Royals avoided a three-game sweep and pulled two games ahead of the last-place Indians in the AL Central. Kansas City is 5-17 on the road since July 8.

Mike Aviles blooped a one-out single off Fausto Carmona (11-13) and scored on Ka’aihue’s drive into the left-center gap to put the Royals ahead 3-2.

Closer Joakim Soria struck out the side in the ninth in a non-save situation. The right-hander has been the Royals clear-cut MVP  this season with 36 saves in 38 chances and converting on a team-record 28 straight. They pitched him on Sunday, because he had not pitched since Wednesday.

Royals manager Ned Yost got his 500th career win in the majors. The Royals are 43-52 since Yost replaced Trey Hillman on May 14. Yost’s forte’ is that he has a way of working and communicating with young talent and teams, which the Royals are.

The losing pitcher was Fausto Carmona, the Indians All-Star pitcher. He gave up three runs and six hits over 6-2-3 innings. The right-hander is 0-5 since beating Boston five starts ago on August 2.


* 91-year-old Bob Feller, the Indians pitching great watched the game from his regular seat in the press box. The third-oldest living Hall of Famer had missed five games while getting treatment for leukemia.
