Reds option Harris to AAA, activate Stubbs to play CF

The Cincinnati Reds activated center fielder Drew Stubbs from the disabled list before the opening game of a series against the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. The move restores a key member of their starting lineup who has speed, power and a solid glove in the field.

The Reds sent outfielder/infielder Willie Harris  to Triple-A Louisville to open a roster spot. Harris was called up and was a valuable member of the bench.

Stubbs went on the DL June 15 after pulling muscles in his left side during a swing. He went on a three-game rehab stint at Class-A Dayton over the weekend and said the pain is gone, but still has some tightness.

The Reds have been in first place in the NL Central since May 24 and currently has a two-game lead over Pittsburgh and St. Louis.

MLB NL DIVISIONAL PLAYOFFS: St. Louis tries to topple dominant Phillies

 

There is no doubt that the Philadelphia Phillies are the National League’s most dominant teams.

The team from the City of the Brotherly Love, won 102 games and lost 62, clearly the best in the NL and the majors. They were 13 games ahead of Atlanta.

The Cardinals finished second in the NL Central.

St. Louis, the National League’s wild card team, ended the Atlanta Braves’ season without a trip to the playoffs that looked like a certainty just a few short weeks ago.

The Cardinals trailed the Braves by 10.5 games on August 25. St. Louis won 23 of their last 31 games to end the season.

Lefty Dontrelle Willis (0-1) pitched well again for the Cincinnati Reds in Pittsburgh.

In his second start since being called up from Triple-A Louisville. The former All-Star allowed only two runs in 4.2 innings, striking out five and walking one.

Willis was taken out because he had warmed up before the game, during the first inning rain delay and again when the game resumed.

Charlie Morton pitched the Pirates into sole possession of first place with a 2-0 win over the Reds Monday night.

Morton, now 8-5 won for the first time since June 15. He gave up three hits, struck out three and walked two. Joel Hanrahan pitched the ninth for his 27th save.

The Pirates lead the NL Central by a 1/2 game over Milwaukee.

The Cincinnati Reds putting on a drive to control the NL Central like they did at the same time in 2010, just completed the improbable for them or any team in the National League, a three-game sweep of their rivals, the St. Louis Cardinals at Great American Ball Park on Sunday.

The Reds won 9-7, but entered the ninth inning with a seven-run lead and gave the ball to Aroldis Chapman to close it out but he allowed four walks and walked in a run before leaving for Nick Masset and Francisco Cordero to officially close the door.

Cordero hit Albert Pujols with an 0-2 fastball which got away from him. Cardinals backup catcher Gerald Laird, former teammate of Cordero’s with the Texas Rangers, took exception and yelled at him for the rest of the inning. Cordero yelled back and gave an animated gesture towards the St. Louis dugout.

After hitting Pujols, Cordero proceded to retire cleanup hitter Matt Holliday and annual Reds nemesis Lance Berkman and the drama was over.

The Reds swept the Cardinals for the first time since 2007 and pushed their lead in the NL Central to 1.5 games. Cincinnati won the game by beating a pitcher that won his last 10 decisions against them since 2006, Chris Carpenter.

Reds starter Travis Wood allowed back-to-back homers to Berkman and Yadier Molina in the second inning, and then shut down the Cardinals the next four innings.

The Reds hitters took control to come-from behind again with Ramon Hernandez hitting his third home run in two days to get things rolling.
