No decision for Iglesias in debut, Reds lose to Cards 7-5

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Raisel Iglesias will have to wait a little longer for his his first big league win.

Iglesias three runs and five hits in five innings in his major league debut for Cincinnati and didn't get a decision in the Reds' 7-5, 11-inning loss to the St. Louis Cardinals.

"Iglesias threw the ball good but got a little fatigued there," Reds manager Bryan Price said.

Signed last July to a $27 million, seven-year contract, Iglesias became the first Reds player since Mike Leake in 2010 to reach the majors without playing a minor league game. Iglesias struck out four and walked two.

Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer in the 11th off Kevin Gregg (0-1).

Price was ejected by crew chief Joe West in the eighth inning, upset the plate umpire Kerwin Danley did not signal that Jon Jay was hit by a pitch. Price did not want to use his challenge.

"Danley said he should have made the call and everyone assumed the call. I felt the umpires should have reviewed it since no one called it or the Cardinals should have used their challenge," Price. "It may be sour grapes on my part."

Carlos Villanueva (1-0) pitched two innings, working out of a bases-loaded jam in the 10th by striking out Todd Frazier. St. Louis took two of three in the series and has won 13 consecutive three-game series against Cincinnati, putting a damper on a homestand that opened with four consecutive wins.

"It was a game that was there to win and we didn't get it done. You don't win championships when you let games like this get away," Price said. "It was a nice homestand, but today was a game we should have won. Since I've been here, the Cardinals has been a team that has beaten us. At the end of the World Series, no one cares how many times you beat a certain team. But to reverse that, yes, it's important to me."

TRAINER'S ROOM

Cardinals: Catcher Tony Cruz was expected to rejoin the team in St. Louis on Sunday night. Cruz started paternity leave Friday.

Reds: Starting catcher Brayan Pena was taken out of the game after an awkward tumble at first while beating out bunt single in the Reds' three-run seventh.

"I tried to hustle down to first. I have to work on my slide. What was I doing sliding into first?" Pena said. "I was excited when the doctor gave me good news. I will be all right."

UP NEXT

Cardinals: Adam Wainwright will pitch for the first time in eight days when he starts St. Louis's home opener on Monday against Milwaukee. The right-hander's second start of the season was pushed back by last Tuesday's rainout in Chicago.

Reds: The Reds get their first look at under-renovation Wrigley Field when they open their first trip of the season on Monday in Chicago. Mike Leake is 4-0 with a 1.71 ERA in his last four starts against the Cubs.

BAD SLIDE

Price was upset over Heyward's slide in the fifth inning when he was thrown out at third trying to stretch a double.

"It was a dirty slide by Heyward. We didn't like it," Price said. "They aren't a dirty team and don't play like that, but we didn't like the slide. Todd could have been hurt."

REPLAY

The Cardinals successfully challenged a play at third in the eighth inning. With runners at first and second, Yadier Molina chopped a ball right at the plate. Catcher Devin Mesoraco reached to tag Molina, and Danley gave the safe call. Mesoraco threw to third, Frazier stepped on the bag and threw to first seemingly to compete a double play. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny challenged, saying there should have been a tag at third. The replay umpire determined the catcher tagged the runner on the leg, removing the force at third; the batter was called out, and runners were put on second and third with one out. Jmbo Diaz then retired the next two batters.

INDIANS-ANGELS

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Conor Gillaspie hit a go-ahead home run off Corey Kluber and the Los Angeles Angels snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the Cleveland Indians 5-4 Monday night.

Garrett Richards (11-8) tied a career high with 11 strikeouts in 7 2-3 innings. Huston Street got the last three outs for his 26th save in 29 attempts, and his first since becoming the 27th member of the 300-save club on July 22.

Gillaspie connected for a two-run drive in the sixth. The Angels added another run later in the inning for a 5-3 lead.

Kluber (6-12) gave up five runs and 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings, and left with a 3.60 ERA this season.

INDIANS-KIPNIS OUT

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Cleveland Indians have put All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis on the 15-day disabled list because of chronic inflammation in his right shoulder.

The Indians sent their leadoff hitter back to Cleveland to be examined by team doctors before the start of a series Monday night against the Los Angeles Angels.

Kipnis leads the American League with 132 hits, and is batting .326 with six home runs and 39 RBIs in 101 games.

The Indians recalled infielder Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus. They also optioned left-hander Michael Roth to Triple-A and recalled lefty Kyle Crockett.

WHITE SOX-THOMPSON

CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago White Sox recalled outfielder Trayce Thompson from Triple-A Charlotte before Monday night's game with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Thompson takes the roster spot of right-hander Scott Carroll, who was optioned to the minors on Sunday. The White Sox had been playing one outfielder short since J.B. Shuck (left hamstring strain) was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday.

Thompson, 24, was hitting .260 with 13 home runs, 39 runs batted in and 53 runs scored for Charlotte this season.

Thompson is the son of former NBA player Mychal Thompson, who played 13 seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs and Los Angeles Lakers. One brother, Klay, currently is a member of the NBA champion Golden State Warriors, and another, Mychal Jr., formerly played with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

His father, his brothers and his mother, Julie, were expected to attend Monday's game in anticipation of his major-league debut. Thompson wasn't in the starting lineup.

HOME RUN RECORD

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- Call him the real-life Crash Davis.

Mike Hessman, an infielder for Triple-A Toledo in the Detroit Tigers' system, became the career home run leader for U.S.-based minor leagues Monday night, hitting his 433rd in the seventh inning of a game against Lehigh Valley.

Davis was the character played by Kevin Costner in the movie "Bull Durham" who set the minor league record for homers.

Hessman reached the actual mark in style, hitting a grand slam to break a tie on the career list with Buzz Arlett.

According to the Society for American Baseball Research, Hector Espino hit 484 minor league home runs, but he hit most of them in the Mexican League, which is not part of the affiliated minor league system.

The 37-year-old Hessman has played 109 games in the major leagues for Atlanta, Detroit and the New York Mets. He has not appeared in the majors since 2010. He's hit 14 homers in the majors, batting .188 overall.
