TEMPE, Ariz. - As kids, Sean Burnett and Prince Fielder were teammates on a travel ball team in Florida. The team was called The Juice, and packed with 11- and 12-year-olds. Rickie Weeks played second base. Chet Lemon , the former major league outfielder, was the manager. The Juice won an AAU national championship, Burnett said. "We probably won 85 games in a row," he said. "That was probably the best team I've ever been a part of. " Burnett and Fielder should have quite a few reunions this summer.

TEMPE, Ariz. - It has been 14 years since the Angels carried a Rule 5 pick on their major league roster - the last was reliever Derrick Turnbow in 2000 - but left-hander Brian Moran could break that streak. Toronto selected Moran, 25, from Seattle in December's Rule 5 draft and traded him to the Angels for a $244,000 international draft slot. If Moran is not on the opening-day roster and he clears waivers, the Mariners would likely re-acquire him for $25,000. Moran, a 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, went 2-5 with a 3.45 earned run average for triple-A Tacoma last season, striking out 85 in 63 innings and limiting left-handers to a .235 average, .272 on-base percentage and .322 slugging percentage.

Cincinnati right-hander Homer Bailey threw his second career no-hitter, the first of the regular season, in the Reds' victory over the San Francisco Giants, 3-0, on Tuesday. Bailey, whose no-hitter last season on Sept. 28 was the last to occur, struck out nine and walked one batter with 109 pitches. Bailey (5-6) is the third Reds pitcher with more than one no-hitter. Jim Maloney and Johnny Vander Meer also accomplished the feat for Cincinnati, according to the Associated Press.

CINCINNATI--Chris Iannetta lined a two-out, two-run single to left field in the top of the 13th inning Monday to lift the Angels to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds in a marathon of a season opener at Great American Ball Park. Angels closer Ernesto Frieri struck out two of four in a scorelss bottom of the 13th to cap a brilliant effort from the Angels, who got six scoreless innings from relievers Garrett Richards, Sean Burnett, Kevin Jepsen, Scott Downs and Mark Lowe. The 4-hour, 45-minute game was the longest season opener in Angels franchise history, topping the 4-hour, 23-minute, 14-inning opener against the Chicago White Sox in 1966.

Lou Marson's first career grand slam highlighted a five-run sixth inning, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 6-1 victory over the struggling Los Angeles Angels in the middle test of a three- game set. Travis Hafner added his 11th homer of the season for the Indians, who have won the first two games of this series. Jordan Brown and Michael Brantley each added two hits in the win. Justin Masterson (6-12) continued the Indians' string of good starting pitching, allowing just one run on six hits and two walks while fanning five in seven frames.

TEMPE, Ariz. -- A pair of key Angels relievers returned to the club for the first time since their season-ending injuries last summer, one clearly on track to start the regular season and the other one a little iffy. Right-hander Kevin Jepsen said before Friday's opening spring-training workout that he is “100%” after undergoing an emergency appendectomy in Seattle on Aug. 26 and missing the final four weeks of the season. He started throwing in November and was able to follow his normal off-season routine.

CINCINNATI -- Joe Blanton gave up three home runs in his Angels debut, one on his first pitch with his new team, in a 5-4 loss to the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park on Thursday, the ninth time in his career Blanton has given up three or more homers in a game. The Angels banged out 11 hits, including three by Erick Aybar, but they also struck out nine times, bringing to 36 their number of strikeouts in the three-game series, a club record. The last came on a 98-mph fastball from Reds closer Aroldis Chapman to Josh Hamilton, who swung through it for strike three with Mike Trout on second base to end the game.  Blanton is a strike-thrower with such good command he didn't issue a walk in 19 spring innings, but the combination of his aggressive approach and underwhelming stuff has led to an average of 28 homers allowed in Blanton's last three full seasons.

Orlando Cabrera has represented a different team in the postseason for four years running — the Angels in 2007, the Chicago White Sox in 2008, the Minnesota Twins in 2009 and the Cincinnati Reds last year. He signed with the Cleveland Indians this year. Streak over? Not so fast. The American League Central is the home of baseball's two unlikeliest success stories so far, with the Indians and Kansas City Royals each 10-4. The Royals beat Felix Hernandez on Saturday.

Skip Schumaker doesn't look like a guy who would try to steal the spotlight. A guy who would photo bomb that nice picture of Hyun-Jin Ryu and Shin-Soo Choo's big moment. But there he was, playing only because Carl Crawford was sick, and coming up with big hits in the Dodgers' 4-1 victory over the Reds on Saturday night before a Dodger Stadium crowd of 52,675. The matchup between Ryu and Cincinnati's Choo, both from South Korea, was a first. And if Ryu did not disappoint on the mound -- holding the Reds to one run and two hits in his seven innings, retiring his last 13 batters -- it was Schumaker who made the difference offensively.

What was just another Saturday night game for the Dodgers was something of far greater significance for Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Dodgers left-hander rarely has had as many eyes on him as he did in this game against the Cincinnati Reds, which marked his first time pitching to fellow South Korean Shin-Soo Choo. "I was definitely more nervous," Ryu said through a translator. BOX SCORE: Dodgers 4, Reds 1 Dodger Stadium, filled to capacity, temporarily became the unofficial capital of Ryu's homeland.

Zack Greinke took an extra moment to huddle with Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis on Thursday night after throwing a wild pitch to Cincinnati Reds slugger Jay Bruce. Greinke, confident with his team in a six-game winning streak and unbeaten himself in five decisions at Dodger Stadium, told Ellis he believed he could retire Bruce with a curveball. "I thought it was the right pitch, just didn't work," Greinke said after his sixth-inning offering was smacked over the left-center field wall for Bruce's 21st home run of the season in the Reds' 5-2 victory.
