ERA at Great American Ball Park,
#1
[/url]CLEVELAND -- Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price had never seen anything like it. [url=http://www.barcelonasoccerpro.com/Authentic-Nelson-Semedo-Barcelona-Jersey/]Nelson Semedo Jersey . Neither had anyone else. Aided by a bizarre play in which Cleveland runner David Murphy was fooled by a second ball on the field and tagged out, Cincinnati defeated the Indians 9-2 on Tuesday night. "Thats one of the strangest things Ive ever seen," Price said. "Im sure thats going to go down as one of those plays we see between innings for years to come." Johnny Cuetos fourth complete game of the season was overshadowed in the seventh inning when the Indians had a rally squelched after an errant warmup pitch from Cincinnatis bullpen came on the field, resulting in Murphy being caught off third base. Lonnie Chisenhall drew a leadoff walk, and Murphy singled. Yan Gomes double cut the lead to 6-2 and moved Murphy to third as a ball thrown by reliever Jumbo Diaz rolled behind second base. The confused Murphy mistakenly thought the ball was live and edged off third. Third baseman Ramon Santiago took the relay throw and made the tag. "The timing of it was crazy," Murphy said. "I just didnt know where the ball came from. It was unbelievable." Santiago was one of the few people on the field who knew the situation and called for shortstop Zach Cozart to make a throw. "I was yelling, Give me the ball," he said. "I saw the other ball, but I knew we had a play." Indians manager Terry Francona spoke briefly with crew chief Gerry Davis, but the call stood. "He said he understood our frustration, but they cant kill a play until the conclusion," Francona said. "It was perfect timing, and its the responsibility of our coaches and runners to know whats going on. I cant fault Murph, though, because he saw the ball there and thought they couldnt throw him out." Cueto (13-6) retired the next two hitters. "I was confused," he said of the strange play. "I thought a fan threw the ball." "Just when you think youve seen it all in baseball, you havent," Santiago said. "You always see something new. Thats why its a beautiful game." Santiago hit a three-run homer in the second off Josh Tomlin (5-8) to break a 1-all tie for his first home run since Aug. 16 last season while playing for Detroit. Cincinnati, which has been playing without All-Stars Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips, is 6-12 since the break, as it struggles to stay in the NL playoff chase. The Reds broke a 10-game losing streak at Progressive Field. BIG PLAY Price admitted the bizarre play gave the Reds a boost. "It may have saved our bacon a little bit," he said. "At this point in time of the season well do whatever we have to do to win a game." Catcher Brayan Pena thought Diaz should be given some credit for his warmup pitch that missed its target by a couple of hundred feet. "Johnny should buy Jumbo a big steak," he said. MR. PERFECT Cueto allowed two runs and hasnt lost since July 2. Cincinnati is unbeaten in Cuetos six career starts against Cleveland. TRAINERS ROOM Reds: Votto (strained left knee) who has been on the 15-day disabled list since July 8, is rehabilitating in Cincinnati. Manager Bryan Price said Votto is still experiencing soreness in the knee, and there is no timetable for his return. Indians: Designated hitter Nick Swisher (strained right wrist) is expected to be available Wednesday after missing two games. Center fielder Michael Bourn (strained left hamstring) began a rehab assignment at Double-A Akron on Tuesday and could rejoin the Indians next week. He hasnt played since July 5. ON DECK Reds: Right-hander Mat Latos (3-3) starts Wednesday as the series shifts to Cincinnati. He will be making his 10th start after opening the season on the DL. Latos owns a 3.11 career ERA at Great American Ball Park, which is the lowest by any pitcher with at least 15 starts there. Indians: Right-hander Danny Salazar (4-4) looks for his fourth straight win since returning from the minors. He has a 2.00 ERA while striking out 17 over 18 innings in his last three starts. Salazar has yet to face Cincinnati. Aleix Vidal Barcelona Jersey . Lineup news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking.

Moments after scoring and setting off another wild celebration at Minsk arena, Platt leapt into the arms of Belarusian captain Alexei Kalyuzhny.BOSTON -- A person familiar with the deal tells The Associated Press that the Boston Red Sox and reliever Edward Mujica have agreed on a two-year contract. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Thursday because the deal was pending a physical and had not been announced. The 29-year-old Mujica gives the Red Sox some protection if closer Koji Uehara, who turns 39 in April, cannot repeat his 2013 performance next season. The move comes one day after Boston completed an $8.25 millioon, one-year contract with catcher A. Gerard Pique Barcelona Jersey. .J. Pierzynski, who gets a $7.5 million salary and a $750,000 signing bonus. Mujica was 2-1 with 37 saves and a 2.78 ERA for the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals last season.
