CLEVELAND —What appeared to be a stirring win turned into a crushing loss for
the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Travian Robertson Jersey . The Reds scored
the go-ahead run in the top of the 10th on a wild pitch, but closer
Aroldis Chapman gave up Asdrubal Cabreras two-run homer with one out in the
bottom of the inning that sent Cincinnati to a 3-2 loss. “The game goes from
jubilation to a downer on one swing,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said. “Thats a
tough one to take.” Cabrera drove a 3-1 pitch from Chapman (4-3) into the seats
in right field. The second homer allowed this season by the hard-throwing
left-hander scored Shin-Soo Choo, who had reached on a one-out single up the
middle. Nick Hagadone (1-0) worked one-third of an inning in Clevelands second
straight win over the Reds after being swept in three games last week in
Cincinnati. The Reds had taken a 2-1 lead in the top of the 10th when
Chris Heisey scored from third base with a headfirst slide on a wild pitch by
Hagadone. It was the third blown save by Chapman in 11 chances. “Hes human,”
Baker said. “What he was doing early in the year was unhuman. Asdrubal Cabreras
an all-star. He can hit. When they do catch up with Chapmans ball, hes supplying
most of the power. If they catch up to it and centre it, sometimes thats going
to happen.” Only five of Chapmans 11 pitches were strikes. “Youre down in the
count, you have to make a pitch down the middle and he hit a home run,” he said
through translator Tomas Vera, the Reds assistant athletic trainer. The
switch-hitting Cabrera was batting from the right side against Chapman. “You
just look for a fastball in a zone,” he said. “You cant try to pull anything. I
just wanted to make contact.” Despite the fact Chapman hits 100 mph consistently
on the radar gun, Indians manager Manny Acta didnt want his players to back
down. “My thought was, Hes human, ” Acta said. “Theres no one in the game where
you go and pick up the bats and gloves and go away. I gave them a little rah-rah
talk. Sometimes it works.” Chapman doesnt think he will have a problem bouncing
back from the loss. “Its just another game,” he said. “What happened happened.
All you can do is wait for the next day.” The Indians have hit both of the home
runs Chapman has allowed in 34 1-3 innings. Jose Lopez homered against him in
Cincinnati last week. The NL Central-leading Reds had a six-game winning streak
snapped by their Ohio rivals in a 10-9 slugfest Monday night and seemed to have
bounced back before Cabrera connected. Pinch-hitter Willie Harris opened the
Reds 10th with a double to centre off Joe Smith. Zach Cozart, who had three
hits, tried to bunt Harris to third, but Smith hustled off the mound to field
the ball and make a throw. Harris seemed to elude the tag by third baseman
Jack Hannahan, but television replays showed that his front foot slid past the
bag as he was tagged out. Hannahan then fielded a broken-bat grounder by Heisey
at the exact instant that the barrel end of the bat bounced between his legs.
Hannahan threw to second to force Harris. Hagadone, a lefty, came on to face
Votto and threw a wild pitch just past the sluggers ear, sending Heisey to
second. Votto worked the count to 3-2 and bounced a ball over Hagadones head
that was fielded by Cabrera, the shortstop, behind second base. Votto hustled
down the line and beat the throw for a single, moving Heisey to third.
Brandon Phillips then swung at an 0-1 pitch in the dirt that got past
Carlos Santana. The catcher tracked it down and shovelled the ball to Hagadone
covering home, but Heisey beat the tag for a 2-1 lead. The Reds went ahead 1-0
in the first against Josh Tomlin. Cozart hit a leadoff double, took third on a
wild pitch and scored as Heisey grounded a ball up the middle and beat the throw
to first by Cabrera for an RBI single. Cleveland tied it in the fourth. Santana
doubled into the right-field corner, moved up on a groundout to the right side
by Michael Brantley and scored on Casey Kotchmans soft single to centre. Reds
starter Mike Leake gave up one run and six hits over seven innings. The
right-hander walked one and struck out four. Tomlin gave up one run and six hits
over 6 2-3 innings in his best outing in five starts since missing three weeks
with a strained right wrist. The right-hander walked two and struck out two.
NOTES: Both managers downplayed an implication by Reds RHP Mat Latos the Indians
stole signs Monday night when they pounded the pitcher for seven runs in four
innings. “We dont do that,” Acta said. “I have enough trouble making sure our
kids know our own signs.” Said Baker: “You dont really have to steal signs when
the ball is down the heart of the plate and up.” ... OF Drew Stubbs (left
oblique strain) is eligible to come off the DL Friday. Baker said Stubbs may
take batting practice Wednesday and a minor-league rehab assignment is possible.
... Bronson Arroyo of the Reds faces Justin Masterson in the series finale on
Wednesday. Matt Ryan Grey Jersey . MacDougall began the
day by edging Quebecs Mike Fournier 8-7, and followed that by pounding Ontarios
Cory Heggestad 11-4. The Nova Scotia rink is tied with Quebec for first place at
7-2, and holds the all-important tiebreaker. Jacquizz Rodgers Womens Jersey . “You dont
know who the players in the market are going to be, and what that market is
going to be. I think people will have a better feel after this week,” Ryan said,
referring to this GM meetings that are taking place in California. “I think
people will have a better feel for what peoples level of interest is. http://www.nflfalconsgearshop.com/tony-gonzalez-jersey/

of France was fastest in training for the second straight day at the Lake Louise
Winterstart World Cup on Thursday.After missing the majority of last season with
a torn ACL, linebacker Joe Lobendahn has been released by the Winnipeg Blue
Bombers. Lobendahn signed with the Blue Bombers in 2008 and has registered 180
tackles, seven sacks, and one interception in his time with Winnipeg. Lobendahns
injury history and non-import ratio issues paved the way for the 29-year-old
veterans release. “It is with sincere disappointment that we make this move
today as Joe has been nothing but a professional in his tiime with Winnipeg and
has always been a fierce competitor and an exemplary leader on and off the
field,” Vice-President and General Manager Joe Mack said in a team release. Stephen Nicholas Jersey. “We thank Joe for
everything he has done for the Blue Bombers over the past four seasons and wish
him nothing but the best.” The Blue Bombers also released non-import defensive
back Jerry-Ralph Jules and signed two imports, receiver Jeremy Blount and
defensive back David Pender Jr. ’ ’ ’
