Eventhough it is spring training, the Cincinnati Reds are scoring runs big time.

They roughed up Cleveland Indians ace pitcher Ubaldo Jimenez for five runs, only one earned, in one inning in his 2012 spring debut on Sunday, in winning 8-6 in Goodyear, Arizona in Cactus League action.

Homer Bailey and Aroldis Chapman, both competing for the fifth spot in the rotation, threw two innings each.

Bailey allowed three runs and four hits on 32 pitches. He gave up a three-run homer to Shelley Duncan.

Chapman allowed one run, two hits, a walk and struck out three.

Indians right-hander Justin Masterson said that he is very much honored to be chosen “to set the tone for the season” as the opening day starter on April 5 against Toronto.

Most MLB experts figured that Cleveland’s supposed staff ace Ubaldo Jimenez would get the nod due to his experience.

Manager Manny Acta chose Masterson because he was Cleveland’s most consistent starter in 2011, going 12-10 with a 3.21 ERA in 33 starts. He won his first five starts of the season and set a career-high in wins and led Cleveland in ERA, strikeouts, starts and innings pitched.

Overall in his career, Masterson is 28-28 with an ERA of 3.92 and 485 strikeouts.

Masterson is a graduate of Beavercreek High School in Beavercreek, Ohio which is located between Fairborn and Xenia in Greene County. With Beavercreek, he was a pitcher, catcher and first baseman.

The Cleveland Indians have outrighted pitcher Mitch Talbot to the Columbus Clippers.

The Indians designated Talbot for assignment on July 31 to make room on the 40-man roster for Ubaldo Jimenez, who they received in a trade with Colorado.

Talbot had a 2-6 record at the time he was designated, with an ERA of 6.33 in 11 starts for Cleveland this season.

No team claimed him so the Tribe outrighted him to Columbus. He’ll fill the role as starter or reliever.

At the time he was designated for assignment, Talbot was on an injury rehab assignment with Columbus with lower back stiffness.

Starting pitchers Francisco Liriano of the Minnesota Twins and Justin Verlander of the Detroit Tigers, the first pair to toss no-hitters within a five-day span of one another since Al Leiter of the Florida Marlins and Dwight Gooden of the New York Yankees in May 1996 (courtesy of the Elias Sports Bureau), have been named Co-Players of the Week for the period ending May 8th.

The co-winners will each be awarded a watch courtesy of Game Time, the leader in licensed sports watches, available at

On Tuesday, May 3, Liriano became the first opposing pitcher to throw a no-hitter at U.S. Cellular Field as he led the Twins to a 1-0 win over the Chicago White Sox. That became the seventh no-hitter in franchise history (including one that came when the team was known as the Washington Senators) and the first no-hitter for a Twins pitcher since Eric Milton no-hit the Angels at the Metrodome on September 11, 1999. The ChiSox were no-hitted for the 13th time in franchise history, the first since Kansas City’s Bret Saberhagen on August 26, 1991, and the first at home since Jack Morris of the Detroit Tigers accomplished the feat on April 7, 1984 at old Comiskey Park. The 2006 A.L. All-Star struck out two and walked six in the 123-pitch outing, becoming the fifth pitcher in the last 30 years to issue more walks than strikeouts in a no-hit performance.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the 27-year-old Liriano is the fifth Dominican Republic-born pitcher to throw a no-hitter, joining Juan Marichal (1963), Ramon Martinez (1995), Jose Jimenez (1999) and Ubaldo Jimenez (2010). Liriano’s no-hitter was the first complete game and the first shutout of his pro career.

On Saturday, May 7, Verlander became the 27th player in modern MLB history and the second Tigers pitcher to throw two career no-hitters (also Virgil Trucks, both in 1952) when he blanked the Toronto Blue Jays, 9-0, at the Rogers Centre. It was the seventh no-hitter in the team’s decorated history and the first since Verlander, the 2006 A.L. Rookie of the Year, held the Milwaukee Brewers hitless at Comerica Park on June 12, 2007. The Virginia native almost reached perfection in the 108-pitch outing, issuing one walk in the eighth inning while striking out four. The 28-year-old’s no-hit performance marked the first on the road for Detroit since Morris’ no-hitter at Comiskey Park in 1984. Toronto was no-hit for the fourth time in franchise history, the last coming when Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan of the Texas Rangers pitched the seventh and final no-hitter of his career on May 1, 1991.
