Daisuke Matsuzaka, aka Dice-K, pitched two scoreless innings and seven Cleveland Indians pitchers combined on a one-hitter, leading to a 3-0 split-squad win over the Cincinnati Reds at Goodyear, Arizona.

The Indians are taking a gamble on the right-handed Matsuzaka, who had arm problems the last few seasons with the Boston Red Sox.

The Japanese fireballer had Tommy John sugery in 2011 which led to him only getting 11 starts in 2012.

The bright spot for the Reds were Sam LeCure and Manny Parra who each threw two scoreless innings on Sunday.

Edinson Volquez solid in start vs. Arizona; Reds lose 3-1

Eventhough Edinson Volquez was the losing pitcher Thursday afternoon to the Arizona Diamondbacks, he made another solid start.

Volquez stated his case for a playoff start. The right-handed fireballer pitched 6 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on six hits, walking two and striking out seven. All of the scoring against him came in the fifth inning.

Volquez returned to the Reds after Tommy John surgery on July 17. He had four good starts and four bad starts.

Then the Reds sent him to Single-A Dayton for two starts in August to improve his mechanics.

Since that time, Volquez has thrown 13 2/3 innings and allowed three runs on seven hits.

The Reds could not hit one of the National League’s worst pitchers, Rodrigo Lopez, who was 5-14 coming into the game and an ERA of 5.14.

Reds rally from 7-3 deficit; score 8 runs in last two innings to defeat Arizona, 11-7

A seldom-used sqeeze bunt, a 40-year-old and a rookie game the Cincinnati Reds an 11-7 win over the rebuilding Arizona Diamondbacks.

The win by the Reds moved them to a three-game lead over the slumping St. Louis Cardinals in the NL Central. The Brewers defeated the Cardinals 3-2 in Busch Stadium.

Jim Edmonds (MLB)

Manager Dusty Baker called the squeeze play in the ninth-inning with 40-year-old Jim Edmonds on third base. Edmonds hustled all the way home as pinch-hitter Chris Heisey perfectly executed the bunt that scored the go-ahead run. Heisey’s bunt was so perfect that he beat it out for an infield single. That play helped Cincinnati rally from a four-run deficit on Wednesday night.

The Reds trailing 7-3 in the top of the eighth inning, scored four runs in the eighth and ninth innings before the smallest crowd in Arizona history, 15,509.

Arizona’s bullpen was the team’s Achilles’ heel in the back-and-forth game that also saw some bad defense. Reliever Sam Demel allowed four runs in the top of the eighth on four straight hits. Aaron Heilman, the losing pitcher came on to relieve Demel and gave up an RBI double in the eighth before allowing the winning run in the ninth and three more to score after that.

The win was the Reds 35th come-from-behind win of 2010. Arthur Rhodes (4-3) pitched a scoreless eighth to get the win.

Chris Heisey (MLB)

The D-Backs rallied from a 3-1 deficit with four runs in the fifth off Reds starter Edinson Volquez. The right-hander was making his seventh start since returning from Tommy John surgery July 17 and struggled with his control throughout the game.

Volquez allowed a two-run homer by Chris Young to put Arizona up 5-3. Reds reliever Jordan Smith gave up a two-run homer to Adam LaRoche to make it 7-3 latter in the game.

MLB ROUNDUP: Reds beat Florida; Indians lose to Seattle


Scott Rolen and Edinson Volquez wasted no time helping the Cincinnati Reds put that debacle of the recent series with the St. Louis Cardinals behind them.

Rolen snapped out of recent slump with three hits off Florida’s ace starter, Josh Johnson, as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Marlins 7-2 Friday night.

Jay Bruce homered for the first time since June 30 and drove in three runs for Cincinnati, which bounced back in style after being swept by the Cardinals.

Edinson Volquez (MLB)

Joey Votto came through with two hits and two RBI’s.

Florida was only able to score on two homers by highly touted rookie right-fielder Mike Stanton who hit two homers.

Edinson Volquez, now 3-1, in his sixth start since coming back from Tommy John surgery, allowed one run and eight hits in six innings.

Josh Johnson, now 10-5, pitched an unusual and season-low 3 2/3 innings while allowing a season-high 10 hits.

Reds manager Dusty Baker served the first of his two-game suspension for his part in the bench-clearing brawl between Cincinnati and St. Louis on Tuesday. Baker, not allowed in the dugout or clubhouse, watched the game from general manager Walt Jocketty’s box while bench coach Chris Speier ran the club with ease.


The Seattle Mariners earned a couple of “first” Friday night.

Pitcher David Pauley earned his first career win and Daren Brown received his first road win as Seattle’s interim manager as the Mariners beat the Indians, 3-2.

David Pauley Seattle (MLB)

Pauley, now 1-4, gave up two runs and seven hits over six innings in his 11th start and 19th career game. He struck out five and allowed no walks. The right-hander worked in nine games for the Boston Red sox in 2008 and was in his sixth start for the Mariners this season with a career record 0f 0-7 with a 6.40 ERA.

Seattle beat Fausto Carmona (11-10), to snap a seven-game road losing streak. They started a season-long 12-game trip in which they play three games each in Cleveland, Baltimore, New York and Boston. Their 16-40 road mark is the worst in the American League.
