Indians 3, Reds 2(10)

Associated Press  |  Last updated June 19, 2012
Asdrubal Cabrera hit a two-run homer with one out in the 10th inning off hard-throwing Aroldis Chapman to give the Cleveland Indians a 3-2 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Cabrera drove a 3-1 pitch from Chapman (4-3) into the seats in right field. The second homer allowed this season by the 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 Cleveland's 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. Cleveland came in one-half game behind the first-place Chicago White Sox in the AL Central and won for only the third time in eight games. 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 center 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 slugger's ear, sending Heisey to second. Votto worked the count to 3-2 and bounced a ball over Hagadone's 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 shoveled 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 Kotchman's soft single to center. 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 don't do that,'' Cleveland manager Manny Acta said. ''I have enough trouble making sure our kids know our own signs.'' Said Reds manager Dusty Baker: ''You don't really have to steal signs when the ball is down the heart of the plate and up.'' ... Indians DH Travis Hafner began a jogging and agility program. He had right knee surgery May 31. ... RHP Carlos Carrasco, who had Tommy John surgery Sept. 21, will go to New York with the Indians next week and get checked by his surgeon, Dr. David Altchek. ... Acta gave OF Johnny Damon a day off. Damon was sore after running into a railing trying to catch a ball Monday. ... 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.
