The Short Version: Cincinnati scores seven runs in the seventh inning, turning a 6-1 deficit into the club’s seventh consecutive win. Oh yeah, and they also swept the stupid Cubs. Let’s just enjoy that for a moment, shall we? Final R H E Chicago Cubs (42-33) 6 10 0 Cincinnati Reds (32-45) 8 11 1 […]

The Reds go for their seventh win in a row, and a four-game sweep over the Cubs, today at 1:10 Eastern time at Great American Ball Park. Cincinnati sits “only” 14 games below the .500 mark at 31-45. As recently as a couple of weeks ago, we would have never even dared to speak these […]

Glorious.  The Reds have beaten the Chicago Cubs in three games. They are 5-0 on the home stand, outscoring opponents 37-17. They’ve won 9 of their last 11 games and a mere 14 games out of first place. They go for the 4-game series sweep and perfect home stand tomorrow afternoon. Scott Schebler will return […]

Enjoy this guest post by longtime reader Seth Shaner. You can find him on Twitter here. Thanks, Seth! Four outfielders. Three outfield positions. Early returns with the Reds’ 2018 outfield rotation weren’t favorable for then-manager Bryan Price or interim manager Jim Riggleman. I understand the idea that it would be better to be able to get […]

With six wins in their last eight games and a 21-21 record over the past 42, the Reds are playing the kind of baseball that fans with an optimistic outlook hoped for this year. The 7-24 start to the season can be attributed to the typical long injury list to start the season, particularly to […]

The Reds bullpen has been good recently. In fact, it’s been very good. After struggling in April through the mercifully short lived Gallardo/Quackenbush Era, and a return to health for Michael Lorenzen and David Hernandez, the Reds relief corp has quickly become one of the best in the game. In the month of May, the […]

Despite the recent series against the Detroit Tigers in which he went 4-for-7 with a home run and three RBI, left fielder Adam Duvall has struggled mightily this season. In 2018, he’s hit .199/.282/.416 with 12 home runs, 41 RBI, 21 runs scored, 25 walks, and 67 strikeouts. Duvall has never been a player that […]

The Short Version: Billy Hamilton had another of his Billy Days, Eugenio Suarez homers again, Joey Votto drives in two runs, and the Reds salvage a game of the series in Pittsburgh. Final R H E Cincinnati Reds (26-45) 8 13 0 Pittsburgh Pirates (35-36) 6 11 0 W: DeSclafani (2-1) L: Musgrove (2-2) S: […]

The Reds failed to extend their 3-game winning streak, falling to the Pirates in the struggle for 4th place in the NL Central. Joey Votto missed a game-tying extra-base hit by one foot with two outs in the 9th.  Cincinnati Reds 2 (25-44) • Pittsburgh Pirates 3 (34-35) Box Score || Win % || Reds Pitcher Statcast || Reds Hitter Statcast Matt Harvey was OK. He gave […]

After only two games played so far this week, the Reds (25-43) will be back on your TV or radio all weekend long. They head to Pittsburgh for the next three days to face a Pirates team heading in the opposite direction. While the Reds have won their last three games, the Pirates (33-35) have […]

Billy Hamilton stole second off Yadi Molina on the first pitch.  Hamilton had entered the game in the 7th inning to pinch run for Ryan Ludwick. Todd Frazier drove in Hamilton for the game’s only score. Chris Heisey took Ludwick’s place in left field. Homer Bailey, for the second time in a week, shut out […]

The Kansas City Royals present a dystopic Ghost of Baseball Future for the Reds. Arguably, the Reds new front office used the 2014-2015 Royals as a template for the early phase of the team’s rebuild, assembling a roster around speed and contact hitting. With tonight’s win, the Reds staved off being tied with the Royals […]
