Reds end long night with 8-7 win over Washington Nationals

compiled from staff and wire reports

The Cincinnati Reds and Washington Nationals had wild game which ended at 12:35 Wednesday morning in Cincinnati with the home team winning, 8-7.

Rookie Mike Leake pitched five masterful innings before a long rain delay of over 2 hours Tuesday night. After the rain delay, the Reds bullpen almost blew a seven-run lead before holding off the Nationals.

Speaking of the Reds bullpen, it is about to undergo a major shakeup. The Reds management has signed Russ Springer to a minor league contract and they’ve offered Jason Isringhausen a contract. Both are former St. Louis Cardinals pitchers and have the experience the Reds need to win the division.

What they’ll probably do is put Springer and Isringhausen in the late innings with Arthur Rhodes and Francisco Cordero; move Nick Masset to the middle innings. Odd men out would be Jordan Smith and Logan Ondrusek.

Now back to Tuesday’s game.

Leake became the Reds first rookie to open a season 7-1 since Wayne Simpson in 1970. The 22-year-old gave up five hits in five innings.

Leake, who has been overshadowed by Washington’s Stephen Strasburg, leads all National League pitchers with a .385 batting average. He singled home a run in the fourth inning.

Cincinnati led 5-1 in the middle of the fifth inning, when a rainstorm forced a 2-hour, 40-minute delay. The 8-1 lead almost disappeared when Nationals offense came alive against the Reds bullpen.

Washington sent 10 batters to the plate for six runs in the sixth off relievers Micah Owings and Bill Bray. Ryan Zimmerman blasted a two-run homer and Michael Morse had a pinch-hit, bases-loaded triple.

Francisco Cordero, the Reds closer, struck out Adam Dunn to end the game.

The Reds still trail St. Louis by a half game, because the Cardinals beat Philadelphia for a second night in a row.


* 37-year-old Jason Isringhausen, who is a free agent, is trying to come back from two elbow operations in the last two years. He has throw for Reds general manager Walt Jocketty who offered him a contract.

* Syracuse Chief Chase Lambin was voted the TOP Star-MVP in the 2010 Triple-A All-Star Game in a 2-1 victory over the Pacific Coast League All-Stars. Lambin had a RBI double in the win.

Syracuse is the Triple-A affiliate of the Washington Nationals.

Alex Wimmers has been chosen as the best pitcher in college baseball for the 2010 season. Ohio State’s junior All-American, who had a 9-0 record and a 1.61 earned run average this season, was named by the College Baseball Foundation (CBF) as its National Pitcher of the Year earlier this month in Lubbock, Texas.

Wimmers, just the second winner of the CBF’s National Pitcher of the Year Award after Stephen Strasburg won it in 2009, was chosen the honor over an all-star lineup of outstanding collegiate pitchers, including finalists Drew Pomerantz, who was 9-2 with a 2.24 ERA this year for Mississippi, and Chris Sale, the Florida Gulf Coast pitcher, who was 11-0 with a 2.01 ERA.

The 10 semifinalists included Arizona State’s Seth Blair, Cal State Fullerton’s Noe Ramirez, Coastal Carolina’s Anthony Meo, Texas’ Chance Ruffin, Texas A&M’s John Stilson, Virginia’s Danny Hultzen and TCU’s Matt Purke.

Bob Todd, Ohio State’s retiring baseball coach, attended the awards show in support of his ace hurler.

Career-wise Wimmers, who was drafted in the first round of the 2010 Major League Baseball First Year Player Draft by the Minnesota Twins, ranks among Ohio State’s all-time Top 5 in four key statistical areas and he is sixth in another. He is fourth at Ohio State in fewest runs allowed (81) and he is fifth in strikeouts (273), fewest earned runs (71) and fewest hits (173). He is also sixth in earned run average (2.94). His 18 career victories rank 23rd. His strikeout total is also good for a 16th place tie all-time in the Big Ten Conference.
