The Reds haven't started 2019 too hot, but it's not time to panic. Despite what other writers may be selling, the Reds should not sell at the deadline.
Cincinnati Reds outfielder Yasiel Puig made an outstanding catch on Sunday over the wall, but injured his shoulder in the process.
The Reds were hoping to finish off a winning week against the two best teams in the National League, but they had to settle for a 3-3 homestand. The Reds batters could not figure out Hyun-Jin Ryu, as he lowered his ERA to 1.52 after seven shutout innings against the Reds. Tanner Roark gave the Reds five solid innings, but the Reds bullpen had a rare poor performance, allowing six earned runs over four innings.
Joey Votto unleashed a great quote on how Yasiel Puig handled his walk-off hit on Wednesday night against the Chicago Cubs.
Jose Iglesias has been an unlikely hero of the Reds lineup in the early going, but why? How has the light-hitting shortstop become a force at the plate?
The Cincinnati Reds blew a late lead against the San Francisco Giants, seeing the chance at a sweep slip through their fingers.
Votto and Puig both got the Reds off to a big start in the first inning. Anthony DeSclafani could not hold the early lead and struggled through four innings. Eugenio Suarez hit a game tying home run in the fifth inning, and Derek Dietrich had a bloop RBI single in the seventh inning to give the Reds the lead for good.
Luis Castillo did not have his best command on Friday night, but he gave the Reds another dominating outing as he held the Giants scoreless for six innings. The Reds bats continued their recent surge of late, minus the no-hitter on Tuesday. Nick Senzel and Yasiel Puig lead the Reds with two hits and two runs batted in each. Road wins have been difficult for the Reds this season, but they have now won back-to-back road games and improved to 8-14 on the road.
Despite an onslaught of bees, the Reds blew out the Giants to tie the four-game series. Fans won both Chik-Fil-A and pizza for the Reds conquests.
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.
