The 66-94 Reds host the 81-78 Pirates in this season’s penultimate game at Great American Ball Park today at 4:10 Eastern time. In this series of season-ending game previews, we took a look at what we’ve learned this year about the position players on Friday. Tomorrow we’ll review what we’ve learned this year about the […]

You might recall the Reds sweeping a 4-game series from the Dodgers earlier this season. It kicked off the Era of Good Feels that lasted just long enough to undermine the Reds’ resolve to do what they needed to at the trade deadline. Raisel Iglesais had three saves in that series, the same number he’s […]

The Short Version: Cody Reed and the bullpen pitch well, but the Reds drop another close extra-innings affair. Final — 11 innings R H E Milwaukee Brewers (75-60) 2 6 0 Cincinnati Reds (57-77) 1 6 0 W: Soria (1-0) L: Brice (2-3) S: Hader (11) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Joey […]

Emotions ran high during last night’s doubleheader nightcap in Washington, D.C. Bryce Harper got hit in the knee by an Austin Brice 84-mph-curveball, and later, Jesus Reyes hit the first batter he faced in the majors, Spencer Kieboom. Pretty unlikely that either had any intent. But in the eighth inning, Phillies reliever Ryan Madson hit […]

Anyone know the last time the Reds swept a doubleheader? They have the chance beginning at 7:05 Eastern time at Nationals Park in the second game of a day-night doubleheader against the Nationals. The Reds took the first game 7-1, with Phillip Ervin starring on offense and Anthony DeSclafani pitching well over seven innings. Starting […]

The Reds proved to be very hospitable to the Philadelphia Phillies in the first game of a four game series at Great American Ballpark. Reds pitchers allowed seven home runs to the Phillies on Thursday evening, tying both the Phillies team record, and the Reds record for home runs allowed. Tyler Mahle could not record […]

Imagine a tall ladder. It’s full of people trying to get to the top.  There’s a guy toward the middle, but he’s slipping down, rung by rung. This struggling guy, let’s call him Louis. Below Louis is another guy climbing up. We’ll name him Red. Imagine Red working his way relentlessly up the ladder. As […]

The Short Version: The Reds beat up on the St. Louis Cardinals, and that’s always a fun way to spend your Friday evening. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (42-52) 9 14 0 St. Louis Cardinals (47-45) 1 4 0 W: Harvey (5-5) L: Martinez (6-5) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Another […]

The Short Version: Reds lose. Again. But at least Brandon Dixon hit his first MLB homer. That was fun for him, one would imagine. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (25-45) 2 7 0 Pittsburgh Pirates (35-35) 6 10 1 W: Nova (4-5) L: Castillo (4-8) FanGraphs Win Probability | Box Score The Good –Jesse […]

The Short Version: The Cardinals jump out to a 5-0 lead, but home run heroics from Eugenio Suarez and Jesse Winker can’t bring the Reds all the way back. Cincinnati drops to 0-9 this season against St. Louis. Final R H E St. Louis Cardinals (35-27) 6 7 0 Cincinnati Reds (22-43) 4 10 0 […]

At first I was afraid, I was petrified. Anthony DeSclafani was making his first start in a Reds uniform since September, 2016. And I’d heard all the pessimism on the radio. It had been so long since AD had pitched. There was the oblique injury. The elbow injury. The oblique again. The Reds have seemed so […]

The Arizona Diamondbacks sluggish offense, last in many hitting categories, was no match for the Reds poor pitching and awful defense. The Reds outhit Arizona 16-11 and only struck out once.  Cincinnati Reds 5 (19-36) • Arizona Diamondbacks 12 (27-26) Box Score || Win % || Reds Pitcher Statcast || Reds Hitter Statcast Struggling Homer Bailey lasted 4+ innings and gave up six earned runs, mostly on a […]
