Bailey, Cordero, Cozart star in Reds 3-1 win over St. Louis

New Cincinnati Reds shortstop Zack Cozart is showing people why he should’ve been with the team all year.

He has gotten off to a good start in his major league career by batting .400 (10 for 25) with one extra-base hit. He has hit safely in his first six games in the majors, the longest such streak by a new Reds player since Adam Dunn in 2001, who hit in his first seven games.

That one extra-base hit was a big one on Sunday.

The Reds were trailing 1-0, on a second inning homer by old nemesis Lance Berkman, his NL-leading 25th homer of the year.

The St. Louis Cardinals lead went by the wayside in the sixth inning. Zack Cozart scored on a wild pitch to tie the game at 1-1.

In the seventh inning, the Reds’ Miguel Cairo tripled to right-center with one out; he scored on a single to center against a drawn-in infield.

Cozart then showed everybody that he can put the baseball in the seats. He belted his first major-league home run, off former University of Mississippi teammate Lance Lynn, in the eighth inning to make it 3-1.

Holding the Cardinals’ hitters all day was Reds starting pitcher Homer Bailey who evened his record at 4-4. The tall Texan broke a personal four-game losing streak. He won for the first time since May 16. Bailey pitched a season-high 7.1 innings.

Reds closer Francisco Cordero close out the ninth inning by retiring St. Louis’ powerful middle-of-the order of Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday and Berkman in order.

The Reds took 2 of 3 games in the series and are 3.5 games behind Milwaukee in the NL Central Division.

Nationals sign Harper and Indians come to terms with two 2010 draft picks

The Washington Nationals reached an agreement with Number 1 overall pick Bryce Harper on a major-league contract. Harper is a power-hitting catcher catcher from the College of Southern Nevada.

The Nationals management say that the idea is to switch Harper to right-field to take advantage of his strong arm; get him out of being battered and bruised as a catcher and take advantage of his home run power and get him to the major leagues in two to three years.

The Cleveland Indians signed University of San Diego right-hander Kyle Blair, their fourth-round pick and catcher Alex Lavisky, an eighth-round pick from Lakewood St. Edward High School.

Late Monday night, Cleveland had not come to terms with their top three picks, including left-hander Drew Pomeranz, the number 5 overall selection from the University of Mississippi.

Major league teams had until midnight Monday to reach agreements with players picked in the June 2010 amateur draft. If no contract is signed by the deadline, those teams would lose the rights to those players, who go back into the 2011 amateur draft.
