Reds put Cozart on DL; Janish brought back from Louisville

The position of shortstop has been one of the trouble spots for the defending National League Central Division champion Cincinnati Reds during 2011.

They let Orlando Cabrera leave to go to Cleveland rather than pick up his $4 million option. They gave the job to Paul Janish and did not hit and ended up rotating with Edgar Renteria.

Ten days ago, they brought up Zack Cozart and he invigorated the team, fans and media with his play by hitting in his first seven games. Now the team is back to square one.

Cincinnati has placed Cozart on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday, one day after he sprained his left elbow while trying to make a tag at second base. Paul Janish, who was demoted to Triple-A Louisville on July 7, has been recalled and will share the shortstop position with Renteria, says manager Dusty Baker.

Cozart was covering second base on Saturday afternoon in the game against the Atlanta Braves. Derek Lowe bunted the ball to first baseman Joey Votto, who tried to get a forceout at second base on Nate McLouth. The throw was behind the runner who was sliding. Cozart reached for the ball and McLouth slid into his arm, bending the elbow backward.

Janish was hitting .256 at the time of his call-up from the Louisville Bats.

The Cleveland Indians showed that they were eager to get back on the baseball field after two straight rainouts at home, by traveling to Missouri to take on the Kansas City Royals.

Indians sweep Boston with 1-0 win


Manager Manny Acta has Indians playing well (file photo)

Everybody expects the Boston Red Sox to win baseball games. Nobody expects the Cleveland Indians to win games especially against a team of the Red Sox’ caliber. But they did win, count them, three games.

The Indians won the third-game of the series by a 1-0 score, using a perfect suicide-squeeze bunt in the home eighth inning to win the game.

Cleveland has won four games in a row, while the Red Sox slipped to an unheard of 0-6. The Tribe is in a first-place tie in the AL Central with Kansas City and Chicago in the early days of the season. It’s the first time the Indians have been in first place since May 17, 2008. They’re also two games over .500, and haven’t been there since September 22, 2008.

Fausto Carmona rebounded from a terrible start against Chicago and held Boston to two hits in seven innings.

The Indians won the game in the eighth as Adam Everett drew a walk off Daniel Bard (0-2) to leadoff. Everett stole second and took third on Orlando Cabrera’s sacrifice bunt. With the count at 2-1, Asdrubal Cabrera bunted down the third-base line, scoring Everett.

The winning pitcher was Rafael Perez (2-0) with Chris Perez gaining the save.

Indians beat White Sox 7-1


Carlos Santana (file photo)

Carlos Santana, who played first base in the series finale against Chicago, his first time at that position in the major leagues, made the key play to help Cleveland win their first game of the season, 7-1.

The Indians attendance took another dive as the paying customers were 8,726, the lowest ever at Progressive Field. That mark breaks the record set the day before of 9,853.

The big play of the game involving Santana, occured in the fourth inning. Chicago was up 1-0 with Carlos Quentin on second and A.J. Pierzynski on first and none out against Justin Masterton (1-0). Alexei Ramirez, a power hitter, was asked to bunt and on the first pitch, the ball went foul. Ramirez bunted the second pitch as the runners were on the move, the ball was popped in the air down the first-base line. Santana, already playing in, stretched out to grab the ball. When the ball was caught, Quentin was on third and Pierzynski at second. Santana had it easy as he flipped to Orlando Cabrera at first base to double off Pierzynski, and then Cabrera then realized that he had to throw to second to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera at second to complete the 31st triple play by the Indians in their history.

At the plate, Santana was 2-for-4 in the clean-up spot and was 6-for-13 in the series. Catcher Lou Marson was 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.

Masterson, who can be an effective pitcher when he keeps the ball down, used his power sinker and threw 63 of 98 pitches for strikes.
