Pie in the face was a staple practical joke in the era of silent movies. Lately, it’s what the Reds have been doing to their fans, losing to the worst teams in baseball. The Reds are now 63-77 under Jim Riggleman, 23-39 since the All-Star break. Cincinnati Reds 3 (66-92) • Kansas City Royals 4 (55-102) Box […]

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 […]

Having made the 100 mile trip north up the west  shore of Lake Michigan from Chicago to Milwaukee, the Reds take on the Brewers in the first  game of a three game set tonight. The Brewers (85-65) hold the #1 position in the NL wildcard chase 3 games clear of the Dodgers and Cardinals who […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tonight the Reds meet the Pirates in the middle game of the current three game series at PNC Park in Pittsburgh. The Reds can still win the series and complete a winning road trip if they can reverse their fortunes and win the remaining two games of the series. Game time tonight is 7:05. Starting […]

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.
