CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds didnt exactly overpower the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday. Telvin Smith Jersey . They didnt have to with the pitching they got.Scott Schebler hit a two-run single in Cincinnatis three-run first inning and four pitchers teamed up on the Reds eighth shutout of the season in a 3-0 victory over Milwaukee.Keyvius Sampson started and Blake Wood (6-3), Michael Lorenzen and Raisel Iglesias followed as the Reds posted their seventh shutout since the All-Star break. They went into the game tied with the Cubs, Angels and Marlins for the most second-half shutouts in the majors.Iglesias pitched the final two innings for his third save in four opportunities as the Reds extended their winning streak to four games.Combined with their 8-0 win on Sunday at Pittsburgh, the Reds have back-to-back shutouts for the first time since winning 4-0 and 1-0 at St. Louis on July 28-29 of last season.Im happy for the guys that have been here the bulk of the season, manager Bryan Price said. Early in the season, when we were struggling, we asked guys to take on roles they werent prepared for. We plugged in pitchers that werent ready to be here. We went through a lot of growing pains. Its nice to have some of the guys that tasted real struggles bounce back and see success for the work they put in on their craft.The Brewers, who had hit at least one home run in nine consecutive games, have lost three of their last four and were shut out for the eighth time this season.The Reds sent eight batters to the plate in the first against Wily Peralta (6-10). They collected a walk and four hits, including back-to-back infield hits to shortstop Jonathan Villar by Adam Duvall and Brandon Phillips that loaded the bases, setting up Scheblers two-run single. Tyler Holt followed with an RBI single.It was a little frustrating, Peralta said. I made the pitches I wanted to make. I got ground balls. They just found some holes. They didnt hit anything hard.Manager Craig Counsell had no complaints about his veteran right-hander.Wily pitched very well tonight, Counsell said. He continued what hes been doing. We didnt have much luck tonight.Sampson, making his second start of the season as the Reds skipped Anthony DeSclafani, tied his career high with seven strikeouts. But he was relieved by Wood in the fifth with the bases loaded and two outs -- not long enough to qualify for the win. He allowed four hits and two walks and hit a batter.Sampson was disappointed about not qualifying for the win, but pleased with his overall effort.This was pretty good, he said. I hate having two walks, but they happen. Honestly, I just wanted to give the team everything I had. I tried to keep them in the game.Wood stifled the threat by getting Hernan Perez to fly out.With the bases loaded and Perez coming in, another guy having a nice year, it was time for Woody to come in and clean it up, Price said.Peralta rebounded after Holts single to retire the next 15 batters before Phillips dribbler hugged the third base line for an infield single with two outs in the sixth inning. Peralta allowed six hits and three runs with one walk and five strikeouts in six innings.TRICKYReds 2B Brandon Phillips tried to catch the Brewers and the umpires napping, catching and then dropping Peraltas soft liner with Martin Maldonado on first base and nobody out in the third inning. Second base umpire Roberto Ortiz immediately ruled the ball was caught and Maldonado still was safe at first.HIGHLIGHT REELThe Reds used two right fielders and both made eye-catching plays. Schebler made a diving catch of Perezs blooper to end the first, then Steve Selsky easily threw out Jonathan Villar trying to score from second Scooter Gennetts two-out single in the sixth.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Rookie SS Orlando Arcia got Monday off after playing in 37 of Milwaukees 39 games since making his major league debut on Aug. 2.Reds: SS Jose Peraza returned to the starting lineup after missing Sundays game in Pittsburgh with a sore right pinky finger, the result of fouling a ball off of it on Saturday.UP NEXTBrewers: RHP Matt Garza (5-6), who allowed just three hits and one run over six innings without getting a decision in Milwaukees 2-1 victory over the Cubs last Wednesday, starts on Tuesday.Reds: RHP Dan Straily (11-8), who set his single-season career high for losses in his last start, tries to improve to 8-2 since the All-Star break on Tuesday. Leonard Fournette Jersey . All of the scoring came in the final 20:04. Lucic scored on a power play at 15:46 of the third period, when he tipped a shot over Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen for a 3-1 lead. Carson Tinker Jersey . -- Cam Newton pranced into the end zone, placed his hands over his chest and did his familiar Superman pose. . From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. Its been over 30 years since Mal Meninga was tearing up the English rugby league scene but people around the Liverpool area have long memories.Its a region where Liverpool and Everton dominate the sporting conversation, but mention rugby league to one of the regions many loquacious taxi drivers and theyll invariably bring up Meninga.The Kangaroos coach was at the peak of his career when St Helens pulled off the biggest signing in the clubs history by convincing him to join for the 1984-85 season on a big-money contract.He repaid them with a whopping 28 tries in 31 games and still to this day is regarded as one of the greatest imports to play in the English game.I loved my time living and playing at St Helens, Meninga told AAP.I used to come down to Anfield, which is just down the road, quite a lot when I wasnt playing, to watch Liverpool play.Craig Johnston, the Aussie midfielder, was there and carving it up and we became good friends.Liverpool were the top dogs at the time and I became mates with many of the players whod come down and watch our games.Unfortunately I broke my arm and couldnt go back and play for a second season. But its a time I look back fondly upon.Signing Meninga was a far from straightforward process for Saints, who faced fierce competition for his services.Veteran broadcaster Ray French, who despite being the BBCs main rugby league commenttator at the time, was also a member of the St Helens board, and thanks to some help from Wayne Bennett managed to get the deal over the line. Brandon Linder Jersey. Saints had said to me theyd signed Mal just before I went out to Australia for the 1984 Great Britain tour, French told AAP.I was staying at the Pacific Hotel in Manly, but when I came down for breakfast I saw Gary Hetherington, the Leeds chairman,He said: Ray, weve just signed Meninga.So I made up an excuse, left the breakfast table and shot straight upstairs to phone Mal.He assured me hed only sign for me and to meet him in Brisbane in three weeks time for the second Test.When I got up to Lang Park I bumped into Wayne Bennett and he said: Ray, Leeds are here, what do you want me to do?So Wayne distracted them by taking them out to the field for a chat.While he was doing that I grabbed Mal and he signed in the clubhouse.French believes he hasnt seen a better and more influential player than Meninga during his 60-year association with the game.He was fantastic for us, there had never been anyone like him before over here and there hasnt been anyone since, he said.There is also a humility to Mal. He has no edge to him and his word is his bond and we remain great friends to this day. Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Wholesale Hockey Jerseys China Nike Baseball Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys China Cheap Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Canada Wholesale NHL Jerseys Canada Wholesale Nike MLB Jerseys Canada Cheap NBA Jerseys Authentic Canada Stitched Soccer Jerseys Canada Cheap Jerseys Canada NFL ' ' '
