tuesDAY'S HIGHLIGHTS

Reds 9, Indians 2: Cincinnati beat Cleveland, aided by a bizarre play in which a runner was fooled by a second ball on the field. The Indians, trying to mount a comeback in the seventh, had a rally squelched after an errant warmup pitch from Cincinnati's bullpen came on the field. David Murphy was on third base as a ball thrown by Cincinnati reliever Jumbo Diaz rolled behind second base. Murphy mistakenly thought that ball was live and edged off third. He was tagged out after the ball that was in play was thrown to third baseman Ramon Santiago.

Dodgers 5, Angels 4: The Dodgers won as Juan Uribe scored on David Freese's errant throw home in the ninth inning.

Cardinals 3, Red Sox 2: Jon Jay drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning as St. Louis won its third in a row.

Pirates: Andrew McCutchen has a broken bone in his ribcage two days after being hit by a pitch, but he hopes to avoid going on the disabled list.

Mariners 4, Braves 2: Felix Hernandez (12-3) extended his major league record streak of games with at least seven innings and two or fewer runs to 15 in Seattle's win.

MLB: Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and Major League Baseball executives Rob Manfred and Tim Brosnan are finalists to succeed the retiring Bud Selig as MLB commissioner, according to a report in the USA Today.
