REDS 5, BRAVES 3

CINCINNATI — It was a long time coming but Alfredo Simon got his first win of the second half

Simon pitched seven strong innings to earn his first win in eight starts since the All-Star break and Todd Frazier homered as the Cincinnati Reds held on for a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Braves on Sunday.

Simon (13-8), who was 0-5 since pitching in the All-Star Game, opened with six shutout innings before yielding a run in the seventh. He allowed five hits with one walk and six strikeouts over seven innings.

Manny Parra and Jumbo Diaz pitched the eighth. Logan Ondrusek allowed Evan Gattis’s 20th homer leading off the ninth and Jonathan Broxton gave up Jason Heyward’s RBI single before coaxing Justin Upton into grounding into a base-loaded forceout for his seventh save for the Reds.

One moment, we Ohio State University Buckeye football fans are salivating at the chance to be in the first-ever College Football Playoff — we’ll have to work on that name, won’t we? I’ll come up with something that the powers-that-be won’t be able to resist and get back with you, dear readers!

The next heartbeat — the moment Heisman-hopeful quarterback Braxton Miller damaged his throwing shoulder — we’re wondering what will happen to our beloved Buckeyes.

MARIA STEIN — With the regular-season gridiron opener next Friday night, Jefferson was looking for a final tuneup to the pre-season to get themselves ready.

What a better way than to take on the 2-time small-school division state champion (Division VI in 2012, Division VII a year ago) Marion Local Flyers Friday night at soggy Booster Field in Maria Stein?

“We challenged our kids this whole week to be physical, because we knew Marion would be. I felt we matched their physicality; that’s what we wanted,” Jefferson coach Chris Sommers explained. “The kids played hard and had great effort, again a very good thing to look for. This was a great scrimmage for us to learn a lot of things about ourselves and we as a coaching staff really liked what we saw.”

In the first two series of 10-plays-and-out for both teams, the defenses were in control, neither allowing a score.

 
Manziel fined $12,000 for middle finger flip

CLEVELAND (AP) — Johnny Manziel has been slapped on the finger.

The NFL fined the Browns rookie quarterback $12,000 on Friday for flipping his middle finger at Washington’s sideline, a person familiar with the penalty told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the ruling has not been made public.

Manziel said he was reacting to incessant taunting by the Redskins during Monday night’s nationally televised game when he made the gesture while running back to Cleveland’s huddle.

“I had words exchanged with me throughout the entirety of the game, every game, week after week,” Manziel said. “I should have been smarter. It was a Monday Night Football game and the cameras were probably solidly on me, and I need to be smarter about that.”
