And this one belongs to the Reds! It has been since Opening Day that we’ve been able to utter that fabulous phrase, but tonight the Reds got off of their four game losing skid with a 12-7 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Sonny Gray earned his second win of the year on the mound for…

The Cubs took the lead in the top of the third inning when Jason Kipnis reached on a leadoff triple after Reds’ Center Fielder Shogo Akiyama lost the ball in sun and shadows entering Great American Ball Park and was later driven in by Nico Hoerner. The Cubs would go on to score at least…

After dropping two out of three games to begin the season against the Detroit Tigers, the Reds were slated to host the Chicago Cubs in a 4-game series beginning tonight at 6:40 p.m. Eastern Time. However, Mother Nature had other ideas. About 30 minutes prior to the first pitch the Great American Ball Park grounds…

Well, that was frustrating. Once again, the Reds received outstanding starting pitching only to see the game slip away in the late innings. However, in this afternoon’s 3-2 loss the lack of offense was the biggest problem. The Reds struck out 13 times at the plate and left nine runners on base as they were…

Unfortunately, it only took until the second game of the shortened 2020 season to get a taste of the 2019 Cincinnati Reds. After leading 3-1 after 6 innings, Red’s Manager David Bell chose to remove Starting Pitcher Luis Castillo from the mound despite striking out 11 batters and throwing just 91 pitches to that point.…

And this one belongs to Reds!!! It might not be Marty Brenneman on the call saying those iconic words anymore, but the win counts just the same. On the back of an outstanding Opening Day outing from Sonny Gray on the mound and 4 RBI game from Mike Moustakas including a 2-run Home Run in…

The baseball season officially began last night as we were treated to a truly terrible first pitch from Dr. Fauci, an interesting rendition of the National Anthem, somewhat creepy cardboard cut outs behind home plate, and a nearly two hour rain delay. Tonight, the season will get started in Cincinnati as the Reds welcome the…

Play ball! Those two words are ingrained in our culture, but unfortunately haven’t been heard yet in this crazy year of 2020. Baseball may not be the true pastime of our country anymore, but there is still something innately American about the crack of the bat and the pop of the glove on a summer…

For the second consecutive night the Cincinnati Reds jumped on the board early in the game with a big inning. In their first trip to the plate this evening in Milwaukee, the Reds put up a three-spot thanks to a Eugenio Suarez Home Run. Phillip Ervin led off the game with an infield single and Joey…

The Reds failed to get on the board in the first inning tonight in Milwaukee which increased their scoreless inning streak to 24. However, in the top of the second, the Reds bats finally came alive.  Christian Colon drew a leadoff walk to begin the inning and Jesse Winker singled to put runners at first…

There isn’t a whole lot to say when you get beat 13-0 so we are going to keep this one short. For the second night in a row, the Reds managed just three hits against the Indians pitching staff. There was simply nothing going at the plate tonight and it resulted in a lopsided shutout…

The late, great Hanover College Baseball Coach Dick Naylor used to always say “sometimes you get the bear, and sometimes the bear gets you.” Tonight, the proverbial bear got the Reds. The battle for the Ohio Cup moved up I-71 from Cincinnati to Cleveland for two games beginning this evening and the Reds seemed to…

Last night I talked about how rain delays were starting to become a Cincinnati tradition. Well, tonight, I’d like to make a motion to add two more items to that list: Nick Castellanos hitting dingers and the Reds bullpen blowing leads.  Castellanos put the Reds (5-6) on the board in the bottom of the 1st…

With three wins in the last two days the Cincinnati Reds have climbed back to .500 at 5-5 on the year. This evening, in Game Two of the Ohio Cup, the Reds will look to go above .500 with a win over the in-state rival Cleveland Indians. The Tribe, now 5-6 this season, will be…

LaRosa’s Pizza, Skyline Chili, and rain delays. After yet another Reds (5-5) game was pushed back two hours thanks to inclement weather, I think it is fair to mention the rain delays with two other Cincinnati staples. Luckily for the Reds, outstanding starting pitching is starting to become a constant as well. Sonny Gray took…

Good pitchers win games when they have their “stuff” working. We witnessed that from Trevor Bauer in his first start this season against the Detroit Tigers when he struck out 13 in 6 1/3 innings of work. Great pitchers win games when they don’t have their best stuff but find a way to compete and…

After the Reds vs. Cubs series finale was rained out last evening, it appears that the bats took an extra night off as Cincinnati travelled to Detroit for a three game weekend series. No matter who the Tigers (5-3) trotted out to the mound, the Reds (2-5) were unable to find success at the plate.…
