As Thursday, September 10th turned into the early morning hours of Friday, September 11th, I wrote the following on KSR after the Reds fell 8-5 to the Cubs: It might be the fact that I sat through a nearly 90 minute rain delay for a game that already wasn’t starting until 8:15 local time. It…

TREVOR BAUER!!! I apologize for yelling, but wow. That outing by Trevor Bauer was one of the most exciting performances I have watched in a long time. Bauer, on just three days rest, pitched eight innings of four hit, one run baseball while striking out 12 batters. It was his fifth double-digit strikeout performance of…

One of the most over used terms in sports is “this is the biggest game of the season.” I am as big of a culprit here as anybody, especially during this Cincinnati Reds playoff push. Generally, unless it is a true win-or-go-home game there will be a bigger one still to come. All that being…

During the recent winning streak the Reds have made a habit of jumping out to early leads. Tonight though it took a while to get ahead of the division rival Brewers. Jedd Gyorko hit a solo Home Run for the Brewers in the top of the fifth inning to give them a 1-0 lead. It…

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.

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…

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.…
