CHICAGO —Rookie Todd Frazier doubled twice and drove in four runs,
Aroldis Chapman came out of the bullpen to stop an eighth-inning rally attempt
and the Cincinnati Reds beat the sloppy Chicago Cubs 10-8 Friday to end their
season-high losing streak at five games. T.J. Ward Jersey . Ryan Ludwick hit a two-run
homer into a 24 mph wind in the third against Justin Germano (1-2) as the NL
Central leaders built a 5-1 lead. Ludwick also doubled, walked and matched his
career best with four runs. Chicago lost for the ninth time in 10 games and made
five errors—by five players—that led to two unearned runs. It was the Cubs
sloppiest game in the field since they made six errors in a 9-8 win over the Los
Angeles Dodgers on Sept. 12, 2006, according to STATS LLC. Homer Bailey (10-7)
won for the first time in four starts since July 20, allowing four runs and nine
hits in 5 2-3 innings. He set his career high for wins, topping last years nine.
After Chicago closed to 9-8 with a pair of runs in the eighth, Chapman struck
out Anthony Rizzo with a runner on third. Chapman retired the side in order in
the ninth for his 26th save in 30 chances and 18th in a row. He has a 0.18 ERA
against NL clubs this season. Germano gave up six runs—four earned—and
seven hits in 5 2-3 innings. Catcher Welington Castillo, shortstop
Starlin Castro, centre fielder Brett Jackson, first baseman Rizzo and third
baseman Josh Vitters made errors. All three Cubs rookies in the starting lineup
had errors. Alfonso Soriano, who drove in three runs, put the Cubs ahead with an
RBI grounder in the first. Frazier, second among big league rookies with 15
homers and 47 RBIs, tied it with an RBI double in the second and scored on
Baileys single to put the Reds ahead for good. Ludwicks homer made it 4-1 in the
third and gave him 24 RBIs since 2010 NL MVP Joey Votto got hurt his left knee
on July 15. The Reds, who stopped a four-game road skid, tacked on another run
on three errors, the last a routine roller that went under the glove of
shortstop Starlin Castro. Drew Stubbs reached on an infield single with two outs
in the sixth and stole second, with Castillos throw skipping into centre field.
The ball also eluded Jackson as Stubbs came around to score. Castro was thrown
out at third base in the sixth after losing track of Vitters single to right.
Castro was booed when he batted in the seventh, then hit a two-run double.
Castillo had a pair of RBI hits—the latter a double in the seventh that came
two pitches after his popup into the middle of the infield was blown into the
first-base stands. NOTES: Cincinnati manager Dusty Baker sat slumping outfielder
Jay Bruce, who is hitless in his last 12 at-bats with seven strikeouts. Baker
said Bruces slump is “like being in quicksand.” Xavier Paul started for Bruce.
... Reds 3B Scott Rolen was held out of the lineup for a third straight game due

injured on his first carry of the preseason in the first quarter and did not
return to the game. He is expected to have surgery Friday morning and coach Norv
Turner said hell be out four to six weeks. SAN JOSE, Calif. —Coach Todd
McLellan was happy his San Jose Sharks rallied for a shootout win. What upset
him is he felt they had to win the game twice because of a goal that was
disallowed in overtime. After Justin Brauns apparent winner was waved off for
goaltender interference, the Sharks beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 in the shootout
Tuesday night on goals from Michal Handzus and Brent Burns. Brauns goal didnt
count because of an interference call on San Joses Tommy Wingels. Replays
appeared to show that Calgarys Olli Jokinen hit goalie Miikka Kiprusoff with his
stick. “Obviously we can come in here, look at the replay and see that it was
not the right call. They dont have that luxury,” McLellan said. “Regulation and
overtime wins mean a lot more than shootout wins, and we dont have one in the
bank, and we probably should have.” The Sharks did prevail in the shootout.
After neither team scored in the first round, Handzus beat Kiprusoff with a
backhand to give San Jose the lead. Michael Cammalleri missed at the other end
for the Flames, and then Burns won it with a sharp backhand. It was his fifth
goal in 13 career shootout attempts, including two against Kiprusoff. But it was
his first attempt of the season. “He was on his toes, made some crisp plays, so
we chose to use him,” McLellan said. “Weve been going with the same group of
players, and sometimes teams can do a good pre-scout, so we decided to change it
up a little bit.” Torrey Mitchell tied the game midway through the third period
and Antti Niemi made 27 saves and was perfect in the shootout. The Sharks earned
just their third win all season when trailing after two periods. Chris Butler
scored the lone goal for the Flames, who have lost six straight road games.
Calgary had been 14-0-2 when leading after two periods but was unable to hold
onto this lead in the latest road disappointment. Kiprusoff made 30 saves. “It
was one of our better efforts,” captain Jarome Iginla said. “We could have had a
win tonight but unfortunately the puck didnt go in the net for us. I thought we
worked hard and were creating. Its still an important point and a big step in
the rright direction as far as the way we want to play on the road. Trent Richardson Womens Jersey. ” The Sharks
finally broke through with their first goal midway through the third to tie the
game. Handzus original shot was saved by Kiprusoff, but he knocked the rebound
back toward the goal. Mitchell came from behind the net to get the loose puck
and knock it in for his fifth goal. “These one-goal games hopefully down the
road will help us in the playoffs,” Mitchell said. “It seems like we cant find a
game where we score five or six goals. Every game has been tight. Our team, were
resilient.” Thats where the game stood until the shootout, thanks in part to a
sharp glove save by Kiprusoff on Jamie McGinn in the final minute of regulation
and the goaltender interference cal. “It was a complete game on our part,”
Flames coach Brent Sutter said. “We had opportunities, and once it gets to
overtime anything can happen. We wanted to play a game where we were on our toes
and the guys did a good job of that.” Kiprusoff was at his best midway through
the second period when he made a strong stop on Patrick Marleau and then slid to
rob Handzus with a sprawling save on the rebound to keep the game scoreless. The
Flames quickly answered at the other end when Iginlas pass to Cammalleri near
the top of the crease missed its target and bounced off the side boards to
Butler at the point. Butler then sent a slap shot past Niemi for his second goal
of the season. Calgary missed a chance to add to the lead when T.J. Brodies pass
to a wide-open Iginla in front of the net hit Iginlas skate instead of his stick
and trickled back to Niemi at the side of the net. The Sharks matched a season
low with just four shots in the opening period, but missed chances when
Frazer McLaren hit the post on a 2-on-1, and Joe Pavelski shot one off the
crossbar on the power play. Notes: Calgary F Curtis Glencross left the game in
the second period with an undisclosed lower body injury and didnt return. ...
The Flames had no power plays. ... Sharks F Ryane Clowe sat out with an
undisclosed upper body injury. He had played three games since crashing face
first into the boards last week in Minnesota. ’ ’ ’
