The Reds and Brewers conclude their 2018 season series tonight with game 3 of the current set at Miller Park. With a win, the Reds can record a series victory over the Brewers and pull to an even 3-3 on their current road trip  before moving on to Miami for 4 games to conclude the […]

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 […]

After Eugenio Suarez allowed a grounder to roll between his legs, right after he and Scooter Gennett couldn’t be bothered to hold on to the ball on simple, consecutive tag plays, and right after Suarez airmailed a throw to first base, it occurred to me last night that watching the Reds had become morbid habit, […]

The Reds swept the Chicago Cubs in a four games series in Cincinnati in June. Since then, before today, the Reds were 1-8 against the Cubs. Today’s win makes the Reds 8-11 for the season series. That’s the best record for the Reds against any NL Central opponent. The Reds are 24-46 in the division […]

The days when the Reds (63-85) were atop the NL Central and the Cubs (86-61) were rebuilding seem like centuries ago. Last night, the Reds dropped their seventh straight game to their division foes to make a 90-loss season look even more likely. Cincinnati would have to finish its last 14 games with a 10-4 record […]

The Short Version: The Reds jump out to an early lead, but the bullpen wastes an excellent start by Matt Harvey. Final R H E Cincinnati “Not the Big” Reds “Machine” (63-85) 2 9 1 Chicago Fuzzy Cubbies (86-61) 3 7 1 W: Maples (1-0) L: Hernandez (5-1) S: De La Rosa (1) FanGraphs Win […]

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 […]

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 […]
