CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Aroldis Chapman let baseball know in his own way that his long journey back from an scary injury was complete: with a 100 mph strike to the games hottest hitter. Chapman made his first major league appearance since being hit above the eye by a line drive during spring training, striking out the side in the ninth with his 100 mph fastball to close out the Cincinnati Reds 4-1 victory over the Colorado Rockies 4-1 Sunday. "I am really happy to get out there for the first time," said Chapman through a translator. "They are a good team but I was mentally prepared to face them. Facing those type of hitters make you feel better, than if you just break the ice." Chapman walked Troy Tulowitzki, who started the day leading the National League with a .405 batting average, but had an easy inning. Todd Frazier hit his second 400-foot home run in three days to back Homer Baileys shutdown pitching as Cincinnati won the rubber match of its three-game series with Colorado. "It was great to see Aroldis. The confidence and determination he had was very cool," said Frazier without a thought to his second home run of the series or his 11-game hitting streak. Chapman was greeted by a standing ovation from the crowd of 33,143. He reached 100 mph with his first pitch and topped out at 102 mph in earning the save. Chapman had been out since being hit above the left eye by a line drive during a spring training game on March 19. "I was excited to get back but I was even more excited when I heard the fans," said the 26-year old Cuban. Chapman was hit hard in his in his last two rehab starts in Louisville, allowing eight earned runs in one inning over the two-game stint. "As much as you want guys to treat those assignments like a normal game, they dont always have the same focus," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "The reports we had said he was throwing the ball well. He made some big pitchers to get some good hitters out." Skip Schumaker drove in two runs and the Reds capitalized on two Colorado throwing errors to send the Rockies to their third loss in four games. Besides contributing two sacrifice bunts, Bailey (3-2) limited a Colorado offence that produced 11 runs and 16 hits on Saturday night to one run -- Charlie Blackmons ninth homer of the season and second in two games -- and four hits with two walks and six strikeouts in 7 1-3 innings. "Homer worked with (pitching coach) Jeff Pico to raise his hands above his head during his wind up," Price said. Bailey, who signed a $105 million contract in March, struggled through his first seven starts. He began the game with an ERA at 5.36. "I had to do something," Bailey said. "I had to figure something out. There was nowhere else to go but to be better." Manny Parra got the final two outs of the eighth inning. The Reds snapped Nolan Arenados streak of getting on base at 30 consecutive games, two days after his hitting streak was stopped at a franchise-record 28 games. "Chapman threw the ball very well," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said. "He used his splitter well to left-handed hitters. He was on today." Juan Nicasio (4-2), whod won his previous two starts, allowed five hits and four runs -- two earned -- with one walk and three strikeouts. Billy Hamilton, making his first start since spraining two knuckles on his left hand while making a diving catch on May 1, led off the first inning with a bunt single up the first base line and went all the way to third on first baseman Justin Morneaus throwing error. Hamilton scored on Schumakers groundout to second baseman DJ LeMahieu. The Reds made it 2-0 in the third on Ramon Santiagos leadoff bloop single to left field, Baileys sacrifice, a Nicasio balk while facing Hamilton and Schumakers soft, two-out liner to centre field. Blackmon became the first Rockie to reach base when he led off the fourth with an estimated 380-foot shot into the right field seats on a 2-2 pitch. Frazier got that run back with his seventh homer of the season, an estimated 421-foot drive to centre field on a 2-2 pitch with one out in the fourth inning that extended his career-high hitting streak to 11 games (13 for 42, .310). Frazier reached an estimated 485 feet with a home run on Friday. The Reds used another throwing error to take a 4-1 lead in the fifth. With Santiago on third base and Hamilton on second and two outs, third baseman Arenados high throw to Morneau on Brandon Phillips two-out grounder pulled the first baseman off the bag. Phillips slid under the attempted tag while Santiago scored. NOTES: Blackmons homer was Colorados 20th of the season with two strikes. ... Reds RHP Mat Latos threw a bullpen session before the game, the next step in his comeback from a flexor mass strain in his right elbow that has kept him out all season. Latos had surgery to remove bone chips from the elbow shortly after the 2013 season and needed surgery on February 14 to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. He has won 14 games in each of his first two seasons with Cincinnati. ... Colorado and Cincinnati both have Monday off.

BOSTON -- Dustin Pedroia started fast, stopped and then raced home with the winning run. It certainly was an adventurous way to end a game. Pedroia scored from third on left fielder David Loughs throwing error with two outs in the ninth inning, lifting the Boston Red Sox to a 6-5 comback win over Baltimore Orioles on Sunday night. "I was a little nervous when he threw it that I was going to be out at third, so there was a lot going on," Pedroia said. "All their outfielders have great arms, so you have to get a great jump for situations like that. We just lucked out." Pedroia opened the ninth with a replay-reviewed double off the top of the Green Monster against Brian Matusz (1-1). With the crowd chanting "Home Run! Home Run!" The ruling was the "call stands" after a 2 minute, 2 second delay. A fan had reached over just at the line at the top to touch the ball, and replays appeared inconclusive. Pedroia advanced on a wild pitch and, after David Ortiz was intentionally walked, Darren ODay hit Mike Napoli on the left knee to load the bases. Pinch hitter Mike Carp hit a liner to left, setting off the game-ending play. Pedroia tagged and broke down the line, but headed back. Loughs throw was wide of the plate and bounced around as Pedroia raced home. "He was going in circles," Carp said of Pedroias route. "He was running around. The only thing that matters is we got the win." Jonny Gomes hit a three-run homer for the Red Sox, who overcame a 5-0 deficit. It was an emotional win on a night when the Red Sox had a moving pregame ceremony for victims of Boston Marathon bombings before the game. Just over a year ago, three were killed and over 260 injured when two bombs went off near the finish line. "I think it really sunk in how much its been a year down the road," Gomes said. The ceremony also honoured first responders, runners and volunteers of the marathon. The family of Lu Lingzi, a Boston University graduate student from China that was killed in the bombings, made their first ever visit to Fenway Park and closed the ceremony with the traditional "Play Ball!" chant before the Red Sox took the field. Adam Jones had three singles and a double, and Nelson Cruz hit a solo homer to spark a three-run first for the Orioles. Boston can take three of four when the series concludes withh Mondays traditional 11 a.dddddddddddd. Patriots Day start. Orioles manager Buck Showalter and a few players had a lengthy discussion with the umpiring crew before the teams left the field. "Theyve got some really strange things you cant appeal," Showalter said of the play, saying he was wondering if all the runners had tagged. "David made a heck of a play there at the end, just threw it a little wildly." Edward Mujica (1-1) got one out for the win. The Orioles had a runner on third with one out in the ninth, but Andrew Miller got one out and Mujica fanned Lough. Baltimore had built a 5-0 lead in the sixth against Boston starter Jake Peavy, who was roughed up for 10 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Ubaldo Jimenez had his best start since signing a big free agent contract with Baltimore, pitching five shutout innings before being chased on Gomes three-run homer in the sixth. The Red Sox then tied it against reliever Zach Britton in the seventh. Ortizs RBI single cut it to 5-4 before Jonathan Schoop, who moved from second to third that inning, bounced a throw home for an error attempting a force at the plate on a bases-loaded grounder. It allowed the tying run to score. Shortstop Ryan Flaherty, who started the game at third but moved over when J.J. HardC I didnt turn the double play like I should have." Jimenez, who signed to a $50-million, 4-year deal, had allowed at least four runs in each of his first three starts. He gave up three on four hits, walked three and fanned five. Peavy had held opponents to two or fewer runs in all of his first three starts. Cruz, the second batter, hit the first pitch into the seats above the Monster. Matt Wieters had an RBI single and Hardy added a sacrifice fly. Loughs RBI double made it 4-0 in the fifth and Jones run-scoring single chased Peavy. Jimenez, who entered 1-3 with a 10.27 ERA in five career starts versus Boston, held the Red Sox hitless until Gomes two-out double in the fourth. NOTES: Right-hander Clay Buchholz (0-1, 5.51 ERA) goes for the Red Sox against left-hander Wei-Yin Chen (2-1, 4.76) on Monday. 00:01ET 21-04-14 ' ' '
