CINCINNATI -- Anthony DeSclafani is giving the Reds what theyve missed most of the season.The right-hander remained unbeaten since his return from a spring training injury, and Cincinnati got a pair of two-run homers by Tucker Barnhart and Joey Votto in a 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday. With that, the Reds won the season series between the NLs worst teams.DeSclafani (5-0) was scheduled to start on opening day until he strained an oblique, an injury that sidelined him for most of the first half.Its no fun being on the shelf, said DeSclafani, who has made eight starts. Im just trying to give the team a spark and eat as many innings as I can. I want to keep the bullpen out of it as much as possible.He gave up eight hits, including Freddie Freemans homer, in eight innings. DeSclafani is 5-0 in his last six starts with a 2.61 ERA.Its not just the wins, but its the quality of his wins, manager Bryan Price said. Hes not a white-knuckle guy, and thats a calming influence on a staff. Starts like that allow us to string together some series wins, and we havent had too many of those this year.Adonis Garcia led off the ninth with a homer off Ross Ohlendorf, the 68th homer allowed by Cincinnatis bullpen -- by far the most in the majors.Barnharts homer completed a four-run rally in the sixth off Lucas Harrell (1-2). It was the first homer allowed this season by Harrell, who doesnt mind pitching in hitter-friendly ballparks.Actually I think it works in my favor, Harrell said. You get guys knowing the ball flies, and theyre trying to hit homers. You dont have to be perfect. The home run was just a mistake.Votto extended his post-All Star break surge with his 16th homer off Ian Krol in the seventh. Votto is 11 for 20 in the last six games with two homers, a double and six walks.Cincinnati won four of seven this season against the Braves, who have the leagues worst record at 33-62. Cincinnati is 36-59.Atlanta was trying to win back-to-back road series for the first time this season but couldnt hold a 2-0 lead. They Braves are 19-26 on the road overall.Jose Perazas two-run single tied it in the sixth, and Barnhart followed with his fourth homer.Freeman emerged from a slump with his first-inning homer, his 17th this season. Freeman was 1 for 19 heading into the game. Erick Aybar doubled in the fifth -- hes in a 5-for-36 slump -- and scored on Chase dArnauds single for a 2-0 lead.STATSGarcia hit safely in all seven games against Cincinnati this season, batting .406 with three homers and four RBI. ... Freeman has fanned in 11 of his last 16 at-bats. ... DeSclafani hasnt walked a batter in his last 21 innings. Hes 3-0 with a 1.93 ERA in four starts at GABP. ... Reds relievers have given up 19 homers to the first batter they faced. ... Brandon Phillips singled in his final at-bat, extending his hitting streak to nine games (12 for 34). Its the longest active streak on the club.REPLAYEugenio Suarez was ruled safe as he slid into home on Perazas two-run single in the sixth. The Braves thought that catcher A.J. Pierzynski tagged him before he got his hand on the plate, but the call was upheld after a review.OLD DAYSAs part of Major League Baseballs throwback day, the Braves wore 1969 replica uniforms. To honor Ken Griffey Jr.s induction into baseballs Hall of Fame, the Reds wore uniforms from the early 2000s, when he played for his hometown team.TRAINERS ROOMReds: LF Adam Duvall got a day of rest. He was hit by a pitch on the left arm Tuesday night but stayed in the game. ... RH Homer Bailey pitched 5 1/3 innings of a rehab start for Triple-A Louisville on Wednesday afternoon in Columbus, giving up five runs. He threw 83 pitches, 53 strikes. Bailey had Tommy John surgery last year.UP NEXTBraves: The Braves continue their trip with a four-game series in Colorado. Mike Foltynewicz (3-3) is 0-1 career against the Rockies in two starts and two relief appearances.Reds: After a day off, Dan Straily (4-6) opens a three-game series against the Diamondbacks at Great American Ball Park.

Cheap 49ers Jerseys China .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. The first weekend of the college football season is loaded. Here are five things to know as you prepare to immerse yourself in football.BEST GAMENo. 1 Alabama vs. No. 20 USC? No. 10 Notre Dame at Texas? No. 18 Georgia vs. No. 22 North Carolina. No. 5 LSU vs. Wisconsin at Lambeau Field. And thats just to name a few. Lots of interesting matchups from which to choose, but the best looks as if it will be the last.No. 11 Mississippi faces No. 4 Florida State in Orlando, Florida, on Monday night. The Rebels are in a bit of a reload season after losing three first-round draft picks that were the heart of a team coming off two straight New Years Six bowl appearances. There is still plenty for the Ole Miss fans to be excited about, starting with Chad Kelly, one of the best quarterbacks in the country, throwing to a bunch of speedy receivers.Florida State seems set everywhere but quarterback. Redshirt Deondre Francois takes over a team with national title hopes. Dalvin Cook is one of the best running backs in the country and safety Derwin James is a versatile playmaker on defense.Add in some SEC-ACC bragging rights and you have the game of the week.HEISMAN WATCHNo player could do more for his Heisman Trophy hopes in Week 1 than Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. The 15th-ranked Cougars open against No. 3 Oklahoma at NRG Stadium, the home of the Houston Texans. If Ward, who passed for 2,828 yards, ran for 1,108 yards and accounted for 38 touchdowns last season, has a big game and leads the Cougars to an upset, he can vault himself into the heart of a crowded field of Heisman contenders that includes three of the top four vote-getters from last season.If Ward and the Cougars play a clunker, you can probably scratch him off the list of possible winners.NUMBERS TO KNOW-Longest current season-opener winning streaks:Florida -- 26. The Gators play UMass at the Swamp.USC -- 17. The Trojans face Alabama in Arlington, Texas.Ohio State -- 16. The Buckeyes host Bowling Green.-Nebraska coach Mike Riley and Virginia coach Bronco Mendenhall each enter the season with 99 victories. The Cornhuskers open the season at home against Fresno State. Mendenhalls first game as Cavalierrs coach is home against FCS power Richmond.dddddddddddd(SLIGHTLY) OFF THE RADARBYU opens against Arizona at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona, marking the return of Cougars QB Taysom Hill for a sixth season of eligibility.Hill lost most of each of the last two seasons to injuries. He also did a Mormon mission at the start of his career. So now at 26, a quarterback who was in the same recruiting class in 2009 as Matt Barkley, gets one more chance to lead the Cougars. When healthy Hill drew comparisons to Tim Tebow. He won a tight competition with Tanner Mangum to win the starting job.The Arizona game is the first in a string of high-level opponents for the independent BYU. Also on the schedule: Utah, UCLA, West Virginia, Toledo, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Boise State and Cincinnati. All of those teams played in bowl games last season. All but Cincinnati spent at least one week ranked.Regardless of how well the Cougars do, a full season from Hill will be a victory.COACH IN NEED OF A WINIts never too early to start the hot seat watch.Texas A&Ms Kevin Sumlin and Auburns Gus Malzahn enter the season with pressure to change the trajectory of their programs. Both start with huge home openers. The Aggies take on No. 16 UCLA and Auburn host No. 2 Clemson and Deshaun Watson.Big challenges and great opportunities to show things are headed in the right direction. Also, a chance to start 0-1 in front of the home crowd.For Auburn, a solid showing against a team that pushed Alabama in the championship game could make a loss in the opener palatable to Malzahns critics. Thats not necessarily the case for Sumlin. UCLA has the ranking and the star quarterback in Josh Rosen, but the Aggies are favored at home by a couple points. It is a winnable game. The Aggies are 1-6 at Kyle Field against ranked teams under Sumlin. Fall to 1-7, with an always tough slate of SEC West games still ahead, and things almost immediately get uncomfortable in College Station, Texas.---Follow Ralph D.
