The Short Version: Reds win next-to-last game of the season behind a strong start from Michael Lorenzen.

Sure, it was just one game. Four innings. But Michael Lorenzen’s performance tonight was a much-needed dose of “maybe next year can be better” for Reds fans. He looked as overpowering and dominant as any Reds starter this year. Lorenzen had Brewers hitters off balance and retired the last seven batters he faced. He commands […]

The Reds are 1-3 against Padres this year, one of the few major league teams that has a worse record than they do (at least for now).

On a different sweaty September Pittsburgh night six years ago, the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pirates 1-0. Twenty-six year old Homer Bailey threw a complete game that night on 115 pitches, struck out 10 and walked one. It was the first of Bailey’s two no-hitters. He faced the minimum number of Pirate batters, with Ryan […]

The Reds will be looking to avoid a sweep tonight in the third and final game of this final series versus the Pirates at PNC Park in 2018. If the Reds can succeed, they will also return home with a .500 (3-3) road trip.  Game time is set for 7:05. Starting Pitchers Reds starter Homer […]

Good start to the brief 3-game home stand. The Brewers’ starting pitcher tonight didn’t make it through the 2nd inning. Maybe they should have offered a little more for Matt Harvey.

When Adam Duvall was traded at the deadline, and with Jesse Winker and Scott Schebler went on the DL with shoulder injuries, many fans thought the move would be an opportunity for Phillip Ervin to show the Reds if he can be a piece of the puzzle in the coming years. But Ervin has barely […]

The task is simple tonight for the Reds. They must put Monday’s meltdown behind them and  post a win in game 2 of the current series with the Indians to have any hope of taking the 2018 Ohio Cup away from them. What more incentive could the Reds need?Game time  is 7:10pm Eastern at GABP […]
