Former Kentucky Wildcat Ed Davender has died at the age of 49. Davender suffered a massive heart attack last week and was placed on life support until his mother, Juanita, could come visit him in the hospital, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. Davender played at Kentucky from 1984-1988, and ranks 11th on the program's all-time scoring list with 1,637 points. His 436 career assists rank eighth on the all-time list.


Cincinnati Reds

Scott Schebler hit an RBI double in the 11th inning and the Cincinnati Reds snapped a six-game losing streak, beating the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-5 on Sunday. The Reds won for only the second time since being no-hit by the Cubs' Jake Arrieta on April 21. Eugenio Suarez led off the Reds 11th with a triple past diving left fielder Starling Marte and scored on Schebler's hit off Ryan Vogelsong (1-1). Schebler had entered earlier in a double switch. In the ninth, he doubled home Adam Duvall for a 5-4 lead. Blake Wood (3-0) pitched two scoreless innings, including a perfect 11th. Gregory Polanco and John Jaso homered for the Pirates. Pittsburgh committed a season-high four errors and misplayed other balls.

Next up for Cincinnati is a 3 game series with the visiting San Francisco Giants @ GABP. Tonight’s first pitch is set for 7:10 PM and available on AM 600 WKYH in Paintsville.

Cincinnati Reds

Neil Walker hit his ninth home run, tying for the major league lead, Matt Harvey won his second straight start and the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 5-2 Wednesday night to stretch their winning streak to six. Walker's third-inning homer off Jon Moscot (0-2) extended the Mets' lead to 3-1 and tied the team record for home runs in April. Harvey (2-3) won his second consecutive start after losing his first three. He overcame a first-inning home run by Zack Cosart and gave up two runs and seven hits in six innings. Harvey struck out a season-high seven and walked one. Addison Reed pitched a perfect ninth for his first save.

The Reds will have tonight off before beginning a weekend 3 game series at the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday @ 7:05 PM.
