A woman who said Cincinnati Reds pitcher Alfredo Simon sexually assaulted her in a Washington hotel a year ago when the team was in town to play the Nationals is suing the player for $15 million. The woman, identified as Jane Doe, filed the civil lawsuit Thursday in D.C. Superior Court. The suit says she met Simon at a nightclub and went with him by cab to the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel where, she claims, he forced sex upon her. Adam Katz, Simons agent, said he had no comment when reached by phone Thursday night. A copy of the suit was obtained by WMAR-TV in Baltimore. The 32-year-old Simon played for the Baltimore Orioles for parts of four seasons from 2008 to 2011 before being claimed off waivers by the Reds. "This was a very brutal attack," Steve Kelly, one of the womans lawyers, said Thursday night. "It was very traumatic for her." The lawsuit says that the night of April 27, 2013, the then 27-year-old woman and friends went to a nightclub and were approached by a man claiming to be Simons manager. The man escorted the woman to a table where Simon and another ballplayer were sitting and introduced her, according to the lawsuit. The woman and Simon left about 2:30 a.m. in a cab and rode to the hotel where the Reds were staying, according to the court document, which also alleges the woman was intoxicated and unable to consent to sex. The suit alleges that Simon started to kiss the woman, but began to get rough with her, pinning her down on her stomach and grabbing her hair. Simon forced the woman to have sex with him, the suit alleges. The woman fled the room, took a cab back to the nightclub and recounted the alleged incident to her roommate, according to the lawsuit. The woman, who was in pain and bleeding, went to a hospital later that morning for sexual assault exam, the suit says. She reported the attack to D.C. police on May 2. Police spokesman Hugh Carew said Thursday night that officers forwarded the report to the U.S. Attorneys Office in Washington. William Miller, public information officer for the U.S. Attorneys Office, said in an email that the office "typically does not confirm or deny investigations and does not comment on grand jury proceedings." Miller also said the office works closely with law enforcers and thoroughly investigates allegations of sexual assault. An initial scheduling conference for the lawsuit is set for July 25. Simon was jailed in the Dominican Republic in 2011 on a charge of involuntary manslaughter. He was acquitted. Germaine Pratt Bengals Jersey . -- J.R.

Worley tossed a four-hitter for his first shutout, and the Pittsburgh Pirates pounded Madison Bumgarner early in a 5-0 win over the struggling Giants on Monday night. "Just glad I gave them something fun to watch," said Worley, who didnt grow up a Giants fan but heard "a lot of lip" from friends after coming up in the Phillies organization. Worley sure seems to bring his best against San Francisco. Worley (4-1) struck out three and walked one in an efficient 100-pitch outing. His only other complete game came in a 7-2 win over the Giants on July 26, 2011, in Philadelphia. Four players drove in a run off Bumgarner (12-8) in the first, and Josh Harrison hit his seventh homer in the second to provide all of Pittsburghs pop. Worley worked over batters the rest of the way to hand San Francisco its fifth straight loss and 12th shutout this season. The right-hander was acquired from Minnesota on March 25 for a player to be named or cash. He spent time in extended spring training and with Triple-A Indianapolis before being thrust into Pittsburghs rotation because of injuries. Worley has made the most of his opportunities in the majors. He has a 2.54 ERA in eight appearances this season, including seven starts. "He had to fight back. He had to make some adjustments," Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. "Hes been focused. Hes been prepared. Hes not doing anything he hasnt done before. His confidence is playing. The command is whats showing up." Worley didnt allow a baserunner until Pablo Sandoval singled for the first of his two hits. Gregor Blanco hit a swinging bunt single in the sixth before being nabbed trying to steal second. And Hunter Pences two-out triple in the ninth was the only other hit off Worley. The Giants, who were just swept in a three-game home series by the Dodgers to fall out of first place in the NL West, were counting on their All-Star pitcher to help wash away their woes.dddddddddddd Instead, Bumgarner gave up five runs and six hits in four innings. He had allowed one run in 14 innings since the All-Star break and was coming off his best start of the season. All that evaporated in a 41-pitch first. He allowed three hits, two walks and committed one of two San Francisco errors in the inning when he misfired to second trying to pickoff Andrew McCutchen. TRAINERS ROOM Pirates: Left fielder Starling Marte can come off the concussion list Wednesday but likely wont resume baseball activities until a few days after that. Giants: First baseman Brandon Belt passed his concussion test, resumed working out and is expected to return early in the teams 10-game road trip that begins Friday at the New York Mets. ... Backup catcher Hector Sanchez failed his concussion test and said he will be out least another three days. ... Center fielder Angel Pagan (back) will go through his pregame workout routine Tuesday in Arizona, and if everything goes well the Giants will set a date for his rehab assignment. ON DECK Pirates: LHP Francisco Liriano (2-7, 4.18 ERA) looks for his second straight victory. Giants: RHP Tim Hudson (8-7, 2.65 ERA) tries to stop his three-game home losing streak. TURN TWO: The Pirates helped Worley out with two double plays, including a spectacular turn by second baseman Neil Walker in the fourth. Walker grabbed shortstop Jordy Mercers glove scoop barehanded while falling, turned and threw to first to get Michael Morse. "I knew I was going to have to bare-hand the ball, but I just didnt know where it was going to be," Walker said. "It was kind of just instinctual." HOME-FIELD DISADVANTAGE After starting the season 22-9 at home, the Giants are 6-20 in San Francisco since and 28-29 overall. "This is kind of where you make your money at," said Bumgarner, who is 4-6 at AT&T Park this season. "Its really weird." ' ' '
