The Cincinnati Reds have several spots that could be up for grabs this spring, but the competition for the bench may be the most intriguing of them all.
The Cincinnati Reds released outfielder Matt Kemp, optioned outfielder Scott Schebler to Triple-A, and recalled reliever Cody Reed on Saturday.
Shortstop Jose Iglesias came through with a late home run to back up a solid pitching performance and give the Cincinnati Reds a win over the New York Mets.
Say it with me: It's early and the Cincinnati Reds are fine.
A full recap of this afternoon's big league baseball game between the Cincinnati Reds and the St. Louis Cardinals from Busch Stadium.
The Reds offense got off to a great start on Wednesday night when they collected three straight hits off Mike Soroka to start the game. The Reds were only able to scratch across one run in that inning and two more hits the rest of the night. Tanner Roark battled through five innings, but a Yasiel Puig error gave the Braves the lead in the fifth inning. They would go on to win 3-1.
