Zack Cozart ripped a single to left that plated the tying and go-ahead runs in the ninth inning as his club beat the Indians 4-3 on Wednesday.

He came up with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. Arismendy Alcantara was on third and Billy Hamilton was on first. Cozart drilled a line drive that bounced right in front of left-fielder Michael Brantley, who blocked the ball in front of him on a dive. Alcantara scored easily from third while Billy Hamilton blazed around from first base on a ball that no other player in baseball could have scored on. Cozart went 1-for-4 with a walk in the game. He is having an excellent season, sporting a .340/.420/.563 triple slash with four homers, 26 runs and 23 RBI in 39 games. He has missed a few games here and there with a nagging wrist injury that doesn't seem to have affected his hitting.

Adam Duvall ripped a two-run homer in Wednesday's win over the Indians.

His blast in the fourth inning accounted for all the runs his team would muster against starter Trevor Bauer, but they added two more against closer Cody Allen to win in the ninth inning. Duvall finished 1-for-4 in the contest and is batting a swell .259/.305/.500 with 10 longballs and 37 RBI on the season.

Lisalverto Bonilla gave up three runs in five innings during his start versus the Indians on Wednesday.

He was in line to take a loss until the Reds came back and won in the ninth inning. He gave up six hits and three walks while striking out two. Two of the runs he allowed came on a Carlos Santana bomb in the third inning. Bonilla has a 6.17 ERA in 23 1/3 innings. The Reds' rotation is wide open due to injuries and poor performances but Bonilla will need to make some improvements if he wants to stick around.

Mike Leake limited the Dodgers to one run over eight innings to win Wednesday.

Mike Leake brought his ERA back under 2.00 to 1.91 tonight. He's allowed just 47 hits and four homers in 61 1/3 innings. In his first year in St. Louis, he had similar strikeout and walk rates to what he does now, but he gave up 203 hits and 20 homers in 176 2/3 innings. Maybe he remains above average, but he's a definite sell-high candidate.
May 25 - 1:15 AM

Cody Allen gave up two runs in the ninth inning to absorb a loss and a blown save against the Reds on Wednesday.

Asked to protect a one-run lead in the ninth inning, he allowed singles to the first two batters of the inning. The Reds gave him a free out by bunting into a fielder's choice to retire the lead runner at third. Allen then got speedster Billy Hamilton to ground into a fielder's choice. But then Zack Cozart smoked a single to left that plated the tying and go-ahead runs. It was Allen's first blown save and second loss of the season. Allen's numbers are still excellent despite the poor game today. He has 13 saves with a 2.29 ERA and 30 strikeouts in 19 2/3 innings.
May 25 - 1:13 AM

Rich Hill walked seven and allowed five runs in four-plus innings Wednesday in a loss to the Cardinals.

Just 40 of Hill's 82 pitches were strikes, which makes one wonder if his finger issues creeped back up. Manager Dave Roberts wasn't willing to comment about that immediately following the game. Most likely, we'll be hearing more about it tomorrow.
May 25 - 1:12 AM

Jedd Gyorko finished 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Gyorko's surprising 30-homer season last year came with just a .243 average. This year, though, he's at .331 over 136 at-bats. There's no way he keeps that up, but he probably will make another run at 30 homers now that he's a regular.
May 25 - 1:09 AM

Carlos Santana went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Wednesday's loss to the Reds.

He hit a two-run dinger off starter Lisalverto Bonilla in the third inning, then ripped an RBI double in the fifth. As usual for the veteran, Santana sports a low batting average but is solid in all the other measurements. He is slashing .230/.332/.410 with five homers, 25 runs scored and 26 RBI. The first baseman has started five games in the outfield to gain new positional eligibility in some fantasy leagues.
