Reds turn on power to help Bailey win for first time vs. Brewers, 3-1


Coming into Friday’s matchup with the Milwaukee Brewers, Reds pitcher Homer Bailey had his ups-and-downs over the years and was 0-5 in 10 career games.

But that all changed as the tall Texan upped his record to 9-6 overall and has won four straight starts for the first time in his career.

Bailey tied a career-high with 10 strikeouts in hurling eight innings to beat the Brewers for the first time, 3-1 allowing Cincinnati to hold onto first-place in the National League Central Division.

Zack Cozart

The Reds moved to 13 games over .500 for the first time in 2012 as they won for the ninth time in 11 games and rode the home run bats of Zack Cozart, Jay Bruce and Scott Rolen.

With Cozart’s homer, that means there have been 73 consecutive games with a home run at Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park. It is the longest streak since Coors Field in Denver had 80 in a row from 2002 and 2003.

The Brewers starting pitcher Marco Estrada falls to 0-4 after pitching seven innings, giving up seven hits and allowing the three homers.

Reds’ closer Aroldis Chapman earned his 16th save in 20 chances. He hit 100 mph twice in 13 pitches and struck out two batters.

Rolen back from DL; has to monitor shoulder; Negron sent back to AAA


Earlier in the season, Reds third baseman Scott Rolen was struggling at the plate batting  just  .174 in 29 games before he was placed on the disabled list on  May 12 with a strained left shoulder. T

The popular veteran was activated on Monday following a five-week stint on the DL.

Rolen immediately showed why he is important to the Reds by knocking in runs in his first two at-bats on Monday night against the Cleveland Indians.

To make room for him on the 25-man roster, the Reds optioned speedy infielder/outfielder  Kristopher Negron to Triple-A Louisville.

Eventhough Rolen’s veteran leadership and talents were missed during his stay on the DL, the Reds played well in his absence by going 22-12.

The 37-year-old Evansville, Indiana native got himself back in the groove by playing two games with AAA Louisville, going 2-for-6 at the plate with a three-run homer on Saturday.

Rolen knows that his shoulder will continually require extra monitoring by watching his workload and the number of swings in batting practice. He has also made adjustments at the plate. Rolen has his hands in a lower position than he had earlier in the season.  He says it will be less stressful on his shoulder.

Bad shoulder lands Reds’ Rolen on disabled list; surprised Costanzo recalled from AAA


Cincinnati Reds third baseman Scott Rolen production has been painful this season and now he’s on the disabled list with an ailing shoulder which has been the cause of his slow bat.

In 29 games this season, Rolen is batting .174 with two home runs, 11 RBIs and a .238 on-base percentage. During Spring Training, Rolen looked healthy and played very well, as he batted .356, but he has not been able to carry that performance into the regular season games.

On Saturday, Rolen was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left shoulder. The club purchased the contract of third baseman Mike Costanzo from Triple-A Louisville to join the 25-man roster.

Team medical director Dr. Tim Kremchek examined Rolen on Saturday evening. The left shoulder is the one that needed surgery multiple times over the years, including last season, when the 37-year-old missed most of the second half.

Rolen is in the final year of a contract that is paying him $6.5 million this season.

Costanzo has been very busy early in 2012 having played in a combined 34 games with Louisville and Double-A Pensacola. The 28-year-old has batted .303 with six homers and 24 RBIs. When he appears for the Reds, it will be his big league debut. He was a second-round Draft pick of the Phillies in 2005, and joined Reds in 2010 after playing independent ball for Camden in the Atlantic League.
