Bizarre play, Cueto help Reds down Indians 9-2

CLEVELAND (AP) - Johnny Cueto won his fifth straight decision and the Cincinnati Reds, aided by a bizarre play in which a Cleveland runner was fooled by a second ball on the field, defeated the Indians 9-2 on Tuesday night.

The Indians, trying to mount a comeback in the seventh, had a rally squelched after an errant warmup pitch from Cincinnati's bullpen came on the field.

Yan Gomes' double cut the lead to 6-2 and moved David Murphy to third as a ball thrown by reliever Jumbo Diaz rolled behind second base. Murphy mistakenly thought that ball was live and edged off third. He was tagged out after the ball that was in play was thrown to Santiago.

Indians manager Terry Francona spoke briefly with the umpires, but the call stood.
