Reds proving they can win without Votto; beat Brewers, 6-2

 

The Cincinnati Reds are 4-2 since Joey Votto had to go on the disabled list earlier in the week with a torn knee cartilage.

Each game, a different set of players are leading the team to victory.

In Saturday’s 6-2 win over the slumping, defending NL Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Ludwick, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce led the offense. Ludwick and Phillips hit home runs and Bruce had two more hits.

The Reds are 6-2 against the Brewers this season.

They basically put the game away early in the first inning by scoring four runs off losing pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who drops to 8-7 on the season.

The oldest member of the Reds starting pitchers, Bronson Arroyo at 35 years old, rebounded from Monday’s three-inning stint vs. Arizona, a 5-3 loss, by pitching solidly in six innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He’s 5-6 in 2012.

Ludwick’s first-inning homer into the upper deck in left field, made it 74 straight games in Great American Ball Park with a home run. It’s the longest such streak since Coors Field produced 80 games in a row in 2002-03, according to STATS LLC.

Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Aaron Hill last week hit for his second cycle of the season against the Milwaukee Brewers.

He became the second major-league player since 1900 to accomplish  the feat twice in the same season.

Hill also singled, doubled, tripled and homered on June 18 against Seattle.

Brooklyn Dodgers player Babe Herman had two cycles in 1931, according to STATS LLC.

Friday night off Brewers starter Randy Wolf, Hill doubled in the first inning for his 1,000th MLB hit; singled in the third; hit a home run in the fourth, his 11th of the year, a two-run balst.

In the sixth inning, Hill completed the cycle with a triple off Livan Hernandez.

Max Scherzer became the first Detroit Tigers pitcher in 40 years to strikeout 15 batters in a game.

He accomplished the feat on Sunday in a 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

All of Scherzer’s 15 strikeouts were of the swinging variety. The only other pitcher since 1988 to strike out at least 15, all swinging in a game was the Houston Astros’ Mike Scott against the Cincinnati Reds on June 8, 1990, according to STATS LLC.

Lefthander Mickey Lolich struck out 15 for the Tigers back in 1972 and set the franchise record of 16 in 1969.

Thomas fired by Florida International University after three seasons

Florida International University is located in Miami, Florida.

The school is a Mid-major playing in the Sun Belt Conference of NCAA Division I. The enrollment is 47,966 students.

Three years ago the athletics department came up with the idea of bringing in a name basketball coach who could lure “big-time talent to the tropical paradise of South Florida. They felt they could win.

Entering the picture was former NBA star and coach Isiah Thomas to take a risk with an unknown program.

Thomas signed a five-year deal with the school to take the job, accepting nothing in base salary for his first season but agreeing to receive almost half of any gross revenues from ticket sales, commissions collected on food and beverage concessions and sponsorships.

Three years into the agreement, FIU did not see the fruits of his labor enough to reward the final two years of his contract.

The basketball program never was able to generate the enthusiasm that the school administration and Thomas had hoped. The Panthers averaged 1,071 fans at home this season.

One of the problems is that FIU tried to schedule games at home when the NBA’s Miami Heat were on the road and sometimes that didn’t work out because game dates and times have to be mutually agreed upon by both schools and the league it plays in.

Other factors that hurt FIU, is that the University of Miami draws huge crowds and has a winning team plus, Miami being a paradise city as mentioned before, there is the beach, surfing and volleyball for people to engage in.

The Panthers schedule was tough as well playing George Mason, Oral Roberts, Maryland, Dayton, Middle Tennessee State, South Alabama and Western Kentucky.

Thomas, the Basketball Hall of Fame player, was fired last Friday with a record of 26-55. His teams never won more than 11 games in a season.

FIU has never been a basketball power. The school’s last winning season was 1999-2000, and its winning percentage of .315 since that period of time is one of the worst in college basketball, 329th out of 344 Division I men’s programs, according to STATS LLC.

To the delight of Ichiro Suzuki and other Japanese players currently employed by Major League Baseball, the players association and MLB are using the current two-game series, between the Seattle Mariners and the Oakland A’s to assist Japan in rebuilding its country following the devastating earthquake and tsunami from 2011.

Suzuki gave his countryman and countrywomen plenty to cheer about as he had four hits and an RBI as the Mariners won the 2012 opener over the A’s, 3-1 in 11 innings.

This was the fourth time that MLB has opened in Japan.

Unfortunately for the Oakland A’s, they became the first team in major league baseball to lose eight straight openers since the Philadelphia Phillies from 1985-92 according to STATS LLC.

Suzuki spent nine seasons playing in the Japanese Baseball League in Osaka with the Orix Blue Wave before coming to America to join the Mariners in 2001.

The capacity crowd of 44,227 at the Tokyo Dome were delighted to see their hero batting third in the Mariners order. He was the leadoff batter for the first 11 years of his career.
