At 7-3, the Cincinnati Reds are a game ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers and have the chance to finish this early West Coast road trip at .500 or better. Tonight they try to win their second straight contest against the San Francisco Giants in a game that begins at 9:45 p.m. Eastern time at Oracle Park.
Cincinnati Reds players and fans hope the team will get back on the winning track in the first game of a three-game series against the San Francisco Giants at Oracle Park, beginning at 9:45 p.m. Eastern time. The six-game winning streak came to a rather harsh end over the weekend, with the Reds losing the final two games in Phoenix by a combined score of 15-3. Cincinnati in recent years has not done well on the West Coast, and a quick rebound would be a very positive step for a team whose collective identity is still being determined.
Eugenio Suárez homered, but the Cincinnati Reds 6-game winning streak came to an end in a loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday.
Tucker Barnhart's 10th inning RBI single put the Cincinnati Reds in front for good in a win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.
It was another day with impressive hitting in run-producing situations and for power, as the Cincinnati Reds won their fourth in a row and fourth out of five games out of the gate with a 14-1 win over Pittsburgh. Some in Redleg Nation and beyond will cite small sample size before being willing to consider that this might be the start of something big. I will certainly admit that it's too early to say anything other than maybe all of last year's bad BABIP luck is reversing itself in less than a week's time. It's also very fair to suggest that for at least the past two days, they have been playing against essentially a Class AAAA team.
A six-run third-inning outburst put the Cincinnati Reds ahead to stay in their first win of the 2021 season. But what they'll be talking about for the coming days and perhaps longer is the flaring of tempers in the bottom of the fourth inning.
Leaving the 2021 team salary level exactly where it currently is (without any additions) would, in theory, bring the team back to break-even in player payroll expense over the past two seasons after a significant loss in 2020.
Once again, it's must-win time. The Cincinnati Reds have had a few of those scenarios in recent weeks. None bigger than today in Atlanta.
Just what was it that turned the Cincinnati Reds from disappointing dregs after 44 games (19-25) to a team capable of winning 12 of the final 16 against top competition?
The Cincinnati Reds' 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers tonight sets up what can only be described using the inimitable words of Marty Brennaman as a "titanic struggle" Wednesday night.
Nice to be scoreboard-watching in mid-September, isn't it? The Cincinnati Reds continue to inspire hope in their faithful fans at Redleg Nation and beyond, tonight winning their fourth straight and fifth of their past six tonight with a 4-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. There are a number of games still underway which will all have an effect on the playoff seeding race.
And so it continues. Another decent pitching effort is wasted by a complete lack of Cincinnati Reds offensive production in a 3-0 loss to the Chicago Cubs.
