Phillies at Reds (June 7, 2014)

The Reds attempt to snap a three-game losing streak, as they host the Philadelphia Phillies this afternoon at Great American Ballpark. As Steve summarized in the series pitching match-ups, Alfredo Simon squares off against right-hander Roberto Hernandez.

I’m getting really worried here. The Reds have lost all three game threads that I started this week. If they keep this up, Steve is going to fire me! Please Reds… you HAVE to win this one!!

INJURY NOTES: Mark Sheldon tweeted earlier this afternoon that Joey Votto is travelling to Pawtucket to start a rehab assignment for the Bats on Sunday.

DRAFT NEWS: The Reds are drafting another 30 players through the course of the day. You can check out Doug Gray‘s detailed scouting reports at

LINEUP: The Reds lineup today features Skip Schumaker in left field, Todd Frazier at first base dropped to 6th and Ramon Santiago getting another game at 3rd base.

1. Billy Hamilton (S) CF
2. Skip Schumaker (L) LF

  1. What the heck, I load up gameday to check out what’s going on and a 2 run homer gets hit.

  2. My Deja Vu is acting up- I cannot see the game- would that have been challeneable?

  3. When’s the last time a Reds outfielder had two assists in one game? Let alone back-to-back innings.

  4. By my count Phillies last 11 batters are 6-10 with 2 HR’s, 2 2B’s, 2 singles and a walk. Isuspect Manny vs Howard, hopefully it evens out

  5. Who was it who said in the other game thread “OBP doesn’t win games.” when talking about not cheering for Votto anymore? Three of the six runs have been scored in this game by people who have a walk in this game. Yesterday 5 hits = 0 runs. Today 5 hits, 5 walks = 6 runs.

    OBP wins games.

    • Probably me. Im not very popular around here. Obp doesnt win games runs do. If there were no rbis behind that obp what would the score be? Runs win games not walking so that theguy behind you can hit into a double play.

      • Your thinking is backwards. You can’t score runs without people on base.

        • Except for that one game the Reds won like a week back where they hit 4 solo homers. Lol

      • Oh look, there was a single, not a walk, and the guy behind him hit into a double play. Does that mean singles are the devil too?

    • What a under-talented team needs to do to win, exciting to watch a team execute, hitting cut-off men, gunning ’em down at the plate, th emost exciting play in baseball is a 2B with a runner on first-no thinking, no managing just every body playing

  6. why go the easy way Big Brox? Just let em hit it to the OF and gun em down at home.
    Jonathan getting it done-unbelievable year- if they make an all star for set-up guys he is it

  7. Pretty darn good day by Frazier. No errors at first (minor miracle) and 3-4 with a HR to center.

  8. There is nothing in the world of baseball that makes people look worse than Chapman’s 102 mph fastball followed by an 89 mph slider.

  9. No ground to be gained today, Brewers winning 8-3 bottom of the 8’th and StL won 5-0

  10. It’s outings like that from Chapman that just make me angry he’s not taking the ball every 5th day.

    • It is the 5 blown saves a season that does it for me. Sad to say a day like today makes you realize Broxton cannot do it alone

  11. Can’t disagree with Cali Chrome owner… In NASCAR you can have the points lead but don’t have a championship unless you win a race during the season…He’s right, no Triple Crown winner will happen when horses, can simply be held out of races to focus on the last jewel to steal it at the final race…Lame, rules should change, but bureaucrats don’t care about facts… Good Run Chrome, must be nice to be put out to pasture… Nice Stud Fees… LOL

    • Totally blew it, really got to question his mental toughness-need to fire that jockey and get someone that really wants the triple crown
