Arizona Diamondbacks vs Cincinnati Reds – April 20, 2021

The Cincinnati Reds (9-6) will begin the final home series before a difficult road trip tonight at 6:40 PM against the Arizona Diamondbacks (6-10). The Reds are 16-4 in their last 20 games at GABP dating back to last season. The Dbacks took 2 of 3 vs the Reds in Phoenix last week, but they are even more decimated with injuries now. They are currently missing three players from their regular lineup: superstar Ketel Marte, slugger Christian Walker and speedster Tim Locastro. The Dbacks scored just 7 runs over their last three games against the Nationals. 

Reds win third straight game with an exclamation point from Rob Manfred’s nemesis

It has only been four games, but the energy and passion from the 2021 Cincinnati Reds is palpable. Since a nightmare first inning on Opening Day, the Reds have played inspired baseball. They have competed in every at-bat. Each pitcher has stepped into their role and thrived. The Reds fell behind early tonight, but the offense kept grinding out at-bats until they finally broke through.

Reds drop crucial game in St. Louis, time running out in 2020

he Reds took an early lead for a fourth consecutive game. Unfortunately, that has resulted in just a 2-2 record. Tejay Antone could not get an out in the fourth inning, and the Reds top relievers in 2020, Lucas Sims and Amir Garrett combined to give up 5 runs and 3 home runs.

Reds lose another series as rain proves difficult for Sonny Gray

It started out so well. The Reds jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Meanwhile, the Marlins were down 6-3 in the 8th inning. Those two scores hold, the Reds are somehow, someway back within 1.5 games of playoff spot. But it's 2020. The Marlins rallied to win 7-6. Sonny Gray cruised through the first three innings, but then the rain fell and it fell hard in the 4th inning. Gray walked two batters as it appeared he could not get a good grip on the baseball. The Cubs ended up scoring 5 runs in the 4th inning with a grand total of one ball leaving the infield.

Cincinnati Reds get must win at Wrigley behind Bauer & Moustakas

Mike Moustakas' three-run homer in the first inning off Yu Darvish felt like it was worth 25 runs. The Reds entered play having failed to score a run in 15 consecutive innings, and they had backed themselves into what was a must win game tonight. The three runs Moustakas drove in would prove to be more than enough for Trevor Bauer. He took a no-hitter into the fifth inning, and dominated the Cubs over 7.2 innings.

Reds bats cold in loss at St. Louis

The Reds offense could not get anything going on Saturday night. It has unfortunately become an all too common theme for the 2020 Reds. Kwang-Hyun Kim recorded his first big league win tonight for the Cardinals, as he allowed just 3 hits and 0 walks over six strong innings.

Cincinnati Reds vs Kansas City Royals – August 19, 2020 (let’s play 2!)

The Cincinnati Reds (9-11) are finally back on the field after four days off due a positive COVID-19 test. The Reds will travel to St. Louis tomorrow for a massive four game series this weekend, but first things first they will play a doubleheader today against the Kansas City Royals (9-14). Friendly reminder these games today will only be 7 innings each. That seems to be a massive advantage for the Reds with Castillo and Bauer on the mound. The Royals have the 10th best bullpen ERA in the MLB also, so two less innings minimizes that some.
