Watch as Reds right fielder Jay Bruce climbs the wall to rob Giancarlo Stanton of a home run in the top of the eighth inning Sunday afternoon at Great American Ball Park …

That would have been the second home run of the day (and 30th of the season) for Stanton, who cranked a solo shot off Reds starter Johnny Cueto in the top of the first inning. Cincinnati won the game 7-2.

UPDATE: The Indians have placed Miller on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

8:46 AM: Indians reliever Andrew Miller left last night’s game against the Cubs with left hamstring tightness.

Miller threw just two pitches before clutching his leg and leaving the field. He’s day-to-day for now — and manager Terry Francona noted that he had a similar injury a few years back and only missed a few days — but hamstring injuries can be anywhere from annoying to serious, so nothing definitive will be said by the club until he undergoes an MRI. Given how critical he is to the Indians, who are likely postseason bound, figure that the team will err on the side of caution with a DL sting regardless.

Miller has yet to allow a run in ten innings of work.
