Reds Top Pirates
PITTSBURGH (AP) - Ryan Ludwick lined a two-run double after a pair of Cincinnati batters were hit by pitches, lifting Tony Cingrani and the Reds over the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-1 Thursday. The Reds won for the seventh time in nine games and reached .500 at 11-11. The Pirates have lost six of seven, scoring a total of 22 runs in that span. Cingrani (2-2) allowed one run and six hits in six innings. He struck out seven and walked two. Ludwick's double in the sixth drove in Joey Votto and Todd Frazier. Both of them were plunked by rookie Brandon Cumpton (0-1), promoted from Triple-A earlier in the day.

Pens Blow Three Goal Lead, Lose In Columbus
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Brandon Dubinsky scored with 22.5 seconds left in regulation to force overtime and Nick Foligno's wrist shot just inside the blue line 2:49 into the extra session gave the Columbus Blue Jackets a 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Wednesday night. The Blue Jackets overcame a 3-0 deficit for their first home playoff victory in the franchise's 13 seasons, sending the series back to Pittsburgh for Game 5 on Saturday night tied 2-2. Craig Adams, Chris Kunitz, James Neal scored in a span of 5:01 of the first period to stake the Penguins to a 3-0 lead. But Ryan Johansen and Dubinsky each had a goal and an assist and Boone Jenner also scored for Columbus, making only its second postseason trip.

Cooke Crackdown
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The NHL has cracked down hard on Matt Cooke, suspending the Minnesota Wild left wing for seven games for his knee-to-knee hit that injured Colorado Avalanche defenseman Tyson Barrie on Monday. If the term of the ban isn't finished during the playoffs, Cooke must complete it at the beginning of the next regular season. This is Cooke's sixth career suspension for various player safety violations, bringing his total of games banned to 34, including playoffs.

Yankee Pitcher Suspended
BOSTON (AP) - New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda has been suspended for ten games after being caught using pine tar to help him grip the ball. He was tossed out of the game in the second inning at Boston's Fenway Park last night, after umpires found the pine tar on his neck. Pineda says, "It won't happen again."
