  • Tomlinson lines game-winning single as Giants beat Cardinals (The Associated Press)

    Rookie Kelby Tomlinson has been called upon out of necessity for the injury-plagued Giants, and he keeps delivering. Veteran Marlon Byrd has been called upon for big moments like this down the stretch, and is doing his part since coming to San Francisco this month in a trade from the Cincinnati Reds. Tomlinson lined a bases-loaded single up the middle with one out in the ninth against previously unbeaten Kevin Siegrist, and the Giants topped the Cardinals 5-4 on Friday night to snap St. Louis' five-game winning streak.

  • Reds-Brewers Preview (The Associated Press)

    Although his struggles are part of why the Milwaukee Brewers are in the midst of a lost season, Matt Garza believes he still can get something out of the experience. The right-hander hopes to avoid an MLB-high 15th defeat Saturday night when the host Brewers try to put some space between themselves and the NL Central-worst Cincinnati Reds. After posting an ERA under four in eight straight seasons, Garza has reached a career high in losses to go along with his highest ERA since his 2006 rookie season.

  • Baseball-Highlights of Friday's MLB games (Reuters)

    Highlights of Friday's Major League Baseball games: - - - Dodgers 4, Cubs 1 Clayton Kershaw struck out 14, sparking the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs before 44,874 at Dodger Stadium on Friday. Kershaw (11-6), who is unbeaten in his last 10 starts, gave up a run on three hits with a walk in eight innings. Although he had his string of scoreless innings at home halted at 31 1/3, when Anthony Rizzo homered in the fourth inning, Kershaw retired 14 of the next 15 batters after the Cubs first baseman's home run.

  • Tigers-Blue Jays Preview (The Associated Press)

    Odd doesn't begin to describe Drew Hutchison's season. The Toronto Blue Jays' right-hander has career highs in wins and ERA, but that and the second-highest winning percentage in the major leagues couldn't keep him from a recent demotion to Triple-A Buffalo. Hutchison, though, has been at his best at home, and he'll try to win a fourth straight start there Saturday against the Detroit Tigers.

  • Jungmann, Santana lead Brewers over Reds (The Associated Press)

    Brewers rookie Domingo Santana wanted to make a strong showing in his first start at Miller Park. Santana homered and fellow rookie Taylor Jungmann pitched six strong innings to lead the Milwaukee Brewers to a 5-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night. ''That power is so - appealing,'' Milwaukee manager Craig Counsell said.

  • Iglesias continues hot August with 10-K game

    When Raisel Iglesias was a freshly-minted free agent from Cuba last year, almost all of his suitors projected him as a reliever. But not the Reds, a team that liked him as a starting pitcher. Iglesias chose Cincinnati and has showed signs that he could become a dynamic member of the rotation.

  • Price not certain Holmberg will start Monday

    At least officially, left-hander David Holmberg remained listed as the Reds' scheduled starter for Monday's series opener vs. the Cubs at Wrigley Field. But after Holmberg was hit hard in three-straight starts, including Wednesday vs. the Dodgers, manager Bryan Price seemed to be considering alternative plans.

  • Sampson eyes return to win column vs. Brewers

    Reds right fielder Jay Bruce is badly in need of a good night at the plate while Brewers starter Matt Garza could equally welcome a positive game on the mound. Even based on small sample sizes, Saturday's meeting of the two teams at Miller Park could be to Bruce's benefit.

  • Reds blanked by Brewers in series opener

    Domingo Santana homered in his Miller Park debut and Taylor Jungmann delivered a quality start in the Brewers' 5-0 win over the Reds on Friday.

  • Jocketty: Price's status safe for rest of season

    The Reds have lost 12 of their past 13 games, but manager Bryan Price will get to finish this season at the helm, as general manager Walt Jocketty and CEO Bob Castellini have no changes planned.
