Columbus delivered a clunker in its try for a historic win. The Blue Jackets lost 5-0 to the Washington Capitals last night, ending their winning streak at 16 games, one shy of the NHL record. Columbus lost for the first time since Nov. 26, ending a captivating run for coach John Tortorella’s team that fell short of the 1992-93 Pittsburgh Penguins’ record of 17 consecutive wins. The Capitals kept the Blue Jackets’ league-leading power play off the board in five chances, and scored five goals to chase goalie Sergei Bobrovsky off the ice. Bobrovsky had been rock solid during the streak but stopped just 18 of 23 shots Thursday.

Chris Heisey scored from first base on Todd Frazier’s double into the left-field corner and the Cincinnati Reds came from behind for a 4-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers in 10 innings on Sunday. Heisey drew a two-out, four-pitch walk from Tyler Thornburgh, and Frazier followed with a line drive that one-hopped the wall. Heisey beat shortstop Jean Segura’s off-target relay to the plate to give the Reds three wins in their four-game series against the first place Brewers. Brandon Phillips, who greeted reliever Brandon Kintzler with a game-tying 425-foot blast to center in the eighth inning, finished 2-for-4 and also scored twice. Frazier collected 2 RBI’s and Brayan Pena also went deep for Cincinnati, which is now 5 ½ games back of Milwaukee.

The Ohio Bobcats blew past Central Michigan last night, 82-63. Ohio struggled out of the gates, turning the ball over six times in the first four minutes to give CMU the early lead. However, a hot hand from Walter Offutt, who led Ohio with 17 points and eight rebounds, would push Ohio back in front and help the Cats pull out to a four point lead at the break. In the second half, Ohio would drain threes left and right from Stevie Taylor, DJ Cooper and Ricardo Johnson and push the lead out to double digits and put the game out of reach. With the win, DJ Cooper, Reggie Keely, Ivo Baltic and David McKinley become the winningest class in Ohio basketball history. The Bobcats will return to action on Saturday morning as they host MAC East rival Kent State. The game can be heard on Power 105 with pre game coverage starting at 10 AM and tip off at 11 AM.
