Cincinnati Reds at Washington Nationals – May 25, 2021

The Cincinnati Reds (20-25) have reached a danger point in the 2021 season. The Reds enter play Tuesday 5.0 back in the NL Central. There are still 117 games to play, but the Reds are staring at dominating starting pitchers in two of the next three days. The Reds seemingly have a team with little margin for error, which it makes it difficult to see them overcoming 8 or 9 games back in the division. The Reds will start a six-game road trip tonight against the Washington Nationals (20-23) at 7:05 PM. The Nationals are coming off a series sweep of the Orioles, but prior to that were 5-11 in their previous 16 games.

San Francisco Giants vs Cincinnati Reds – May 19, 2021

The Cincinnati Reds (19-21) will try to end their two-game losing skid tonight at 6:40 PM against the San Fransisco Giants (26-16). Tonight will be an uphill battle for the Reds. The Giants now have the best record in baseball, and their starting pitcher tonight has a 1.84 ERA. The Reds will have to win both of the final two games against the Giants to keep their current streak of six consecutive non-series losses alive.

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.
