Reds recall Cingrani, designate Jeff Reynolds for assignment

The Cincinnati Reds recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani from their Arizona League affiliate to start on Sunday against the LA Dodgers. To make room on the roster, pitcher Greg Reynolds was designated for assignment.

Cingrani was definitely up to the task as he pitched seven innings, allowing one hit, one walk and struck out 11.

The 28-year-old Reynolds, the former No. 2 overall Draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in 2006, was called up on Tuesday to pitch Game 2 of the doubleheader at San Francisco. In his first big league game since 2011, he allowed five earned runs and eight hits over five innings in a 5-3 loss.

The Pacifica, California native’s future with the Reds will be done if he is claimed by another team.

Because Reynolds is out of options, he will be exposed to waivers over the next 10 days. If he is not claimed or traded, he can return outright to Triple-A Louisville, where he compiled a 10-2 record with a 2.54 ERA.

The Reds would like to keep him in the organization.

The NFL is giving the sons of Chris Carter and Joe Montana a shot to become stars in the league where their dads starred.

Duron Carter, an undrafted 6-foot-5, 205-pound wide receiver and son of 2013 Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Chris Carter, has signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings.

Chris Carter played 15 years in the NFL as a possession receiver.

Joe Montana’s son, Nate Montana, also a quarterback, has been invited to the San Francisco 49ers upcoming rookie camp. The 23-year-old had a good showing earlier in April at the team’s local pro day.

Joe Montana played 17 years in the NFL.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee, and will be lost to the National League Central Division leaders for three to four weeks.

A medical exam on Monday showed the tear and Votto had the arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday.

The Reds’ best hitter suffered the injury while sliding into third base on June 29 in San Francisco, but had continued to play without any problems.

Cincinnati general manager Walt Jocketty said that Votto did not have an MRI since that time because there was no need for one. The injury started to become reality in the last couple of days.

Votto decided to have the surgery, which only takes 20 to 30 minutes in July, so he can be ready for the “Dog Days” of August and September.

Votto said in a statement, “It is in my best interest and in the best interest of the team to do it now so that I can be healthy during the last two months of the pennant race.”

The 28-year-old Canadian is batting .342 with 14 homers and 49 RBI’s. He is the National League leader in doubles, extra-base hits, on-base percentage and walks.

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series heads west on this Sunday to the San Francisco area for the Toyota/Save Mart 350 at Sonoma, California.

Formerly known as Sears Point, Infineon Raceway is located just 35 miles from the Golden Gate Bridge and is surrounded by 100 wineries.

The elevation drops from 160 feet from Turn 4 on the track to Turn 10.

The asphalt track is 1.99-miles long.

The race is 219 miles which equals 110 laps. This is one of the smaller venues for a NASCAR event, with a crowd of only 47,000.

Jeff Gordon has won five times in 19 starts and leads the way as no other driver has won more than twice at the track in Cup events.

Infineon is a unique place. Almost 3,000 sheep call the place home. The raceway is home to a vineyard of Pinot noir vines. The vineyard, on a hillside near the track’s main office, opened in 2005. Since the 2006 race, the winning driver has sipped from the champion’s goblet in the Wine Country’s Winner’s Circle.

RECAPPING THE 2011 TOYOTA/SAVE MART 350 RACE: Kurt Busch’s first Sprint Cup victory on a road course came in a dominant way. He led the race in his Penske Dodge for 76 of the 110 laps. Gordon finished second ahead of Carl Edwards, Clint Bowyer and Marcos Ambrose.

Another no-hitter! Giants’ Cain pitches perfect game at AT&T Park

Some of the Giants best pitchers in the club’s 130-year history, Hall of Famers Carl Hubbell, Christy Mathewson, Juan Marichal and Gaylord Perry did not accomplish what Matt Cain did on Wednesday night at AT&T Park.

Cain earned the first perfect game in the Giants’ history and its 14rh no-hitter.

The 27-year-old San Francisco right-hander dominated the overmatched Houston Astros in a 10-0 rout for the 22nd perfect game of all time and the fifth no-hitter, count them; pitched by a MLB pitcher this season.

Cain, the Giants #2 starter, is now 8-2 in 2012. He struck out a career-high 14 batters of the 27 official outs and tied Sandy Koufax for the most strikeouts in a perfect game. He threw 19 first-pitch strikes and never had a 2-0 count in winning a career-high seventh straight start.

He threw 125 pitches, 86 for strikes. The 125 pitches were the most ever in a perfect game.

It was the third no-hitter thrown in June with Cain joining Johan Santana of the Mets and the six-pitcher combined no-hitter by Seattle’s pitching staff.
