He had a bag of ice on his right wrist and another on his left knee when he sat down for a well-deserved postgame meal. One sweet swing and another big win, and it was easy to forget about one painful night. Mesoraco homered for the fourth straight game, connecting for a two-out grand slam in Cincinnatis five-run ninth, and the Reds beat the Chicago Cubs 6-1 on Monday for their third straight win. "Youre going to get beat up back there," said Mesoraco, shrugging off all the bumps and bruises. "Thats why I get more days off than everybody else." Mesoraco drove a 1-0 pitch from Hector Rondon (1-2) into the basket in left-centre for his 13th homer. It was his second grand slam of the season and No. 3 of his career. Billy Hamilton had a tiebreaking RBI single earlier in the inning as Cincinnati won for the sixth time in seven games to move above .500 for the first time this season at 38-37. The winning sequence started when Chris Heisey reached on a pinch-hit single with two outs and no one on base, snapping an 0-for-16 rut. "It was all set up by Chris Heisey fighting his way into that soft single and stealing second base," Reds manager Bryan Price said. It was the first homer allowed by Rondon since Aug. 1. "Not the way you kind of draw it out. We tried to let him work his way through it," Cubs manager Rick Renteria said. "Obviously it didnt work out."

"All in all, I felt good, just needed a little improvement there early," Samardzija said. The Reds got off to a fast start behind Hamilton, who led off the game with a grounder just past second baseman Darwin Barney. The bouncer died in the grass in short right field and the speedy rookie hustled into second with a double, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. Todd Frazier followed with a drive into the gap in right-centre for an RBI triple. But Samardzija buckled down and kept Frazier at third, retiring Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick after he hit Mesoraco for the first time with one down. Chicago wasted a prime scoring chance in the fourth. Rizzo reached on a leadoff single before Starlin Castro doubled into the left field corner, putting runners on second and third. Alfredo Simon then retired three straight to preserve Cincinnatis 1-0 lead. Luis Valbuena flied out to medium right field, Welington Castillo hit a comebacker to the mound and Ryan Sweeney lined out to left. "I just tried to make my pitches the best I can, and everything was good," Simon said. The Cubs also wasted a leadoff double by Barney in the third. Samardzija broke his bat over his left knee after he popped up a sacrifice attempt. Simon allowed one run and five hits in seven innings. He struck out five and walked one. Frazier finished with three hits and Mesoraco reached five times. He also walked twice before he connected in the ninth. "I felt good the first time that I was here. I felt good coming into this series," Mesoraco said. "You just try to ride them out as long as you can." NOTES: Reds 2B Brandon Phillips (bruised right heel) got the night off.

They find themselves trying to knock each other out in the Western Conference finals for the second straight year. The Blackhawks prevailed last year on their way to the Stanley Cup, and they have the early lead this time after taking the opener, 3-1.Dallas Cowboys owner/struggling General Manager Jerry Jones is in trouble. Just how much trouble remains to be seen. According to an Outside the Lines report, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson called Jones and told him he would love to play for the Cowboys when his current deal in Minnesota is done. Peterson, 29, is in the fourth year of a seven-year, $100 million contract. According to Outside the Lines, Jones responded to Peterson with this: "Well, I understand, Adrian. Id like that, too...Well, I love your story. I love your daddys story. Ive always respected what youve been about. Ive always been a fan of yours." Jones then added the following: "Well, well see what we can do, if we can make that happen. Hmm hmm...Id like that, too...Well, were talking pig Latin here, but lets see if we can do that...Were talking pig Latin here, but lets see what we can do about that. OK, Adrian, thanks." Jones denies he engaged in tampering since he wasnt the one that called Peterson. "I understand the tampering thing," Jones said, "and you have to be an initiator." Unfortunately, thats not right. The NFL Anti-Tampering Policy is pretty clear: even if a player contacts an owner, it can still constitute tampering. Specifically, the Policy provides that if a player contacts a club, "the contacted club is prohibited from talking or otherwise dealing with the player. Yeezy Kengät Suomi. ..and the contacted club must immediately report such contact to the owner or operating head of the club which holds the players rights." Jones engaged Peterson in a discussion, and worse, talked to the running back about his future. On top of that, Jones has confirmed he did not report the conversation to the Vikings. Thats tampering. Jones should have immediately told Peterson he could not speak with him since that would constitute a violation of league rules. Jones should then have picked up the phone and called the owner of the Vikings, Zygmunt Wilf, to report the conversation. So now the NFL will review things and figure out an appropriate punishment. It can be anything from a fine to the forfeiture of draft picks. According to the Policy, any tampering is subject to "severe disciplinary action by the Commissioner". Since Peterson is still under contract with the Vikings through 2017 (when he will be 33 years of age), it would be a surprise to see the NFL do more than fine the Cowboys. That being said, the NFL is tougher on its own then my dad was on me when I broke my curfew or didnt finish my vegetables. So anything is possible. ' ' '
