Max Schrock -- starting at second base -- homered, tripled and doubled to lead a formidable Cincinnati Reds offensive attack in an 11-1 Memorial Day thrashing of the Philadelphia Phillies at Great American Ball Park.
The 2012 Cincinnati Reds won 97 games, most since the Big Red Machine teams of the 70s. But despite winning the Central Division by nine games, they drew the 94-win Giants in the NLDS, falling in five games to the eventual World Champions. But what if Mat Latos had led the Reds to a Game 5 win and they went on to face the Cardinals team that had just upset the 98-win Nationals?
Four Cincinnati Reds pitchers combined to limit the Washington Nationals to a run on four hits in a 2-1 Cincinnati victory Tuesday night. All three runs in the game were scored on solo home runs.
As a Great American Ball Park crowd of 17,234 chanted "M-V-P, M-V-P," Jesse Winker took an eighth-inning curtain call following his third homer of the game. It capped a 4-for-4 game with a walk and three homers (all solo shots), leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Winker is in the midst of the finest offensive season of his four-year major league career, improving his average to .356 with 11 homers and 26 RBI.
Every pitcher who goes through the early years of his major league career on an average to below-average effectiveness path wants to have a story like Kevin Gausman can tell after he beat the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0, for the San Francisco Giants Wednesday evening.
Mark this one down as death by a thousand paper cuts. Scratch that, make it three rather deep and painful paper cuts. In a 7-2 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates, the Cincinnati Reds gave away runs or scoring opportunities on three occasions.
Last night's good vibes did not carry over for the Cincinnati Reds, who were pounded by the Cleveland Indians, 9-1, today. As wonderful as the Friday Wade Miley no-hitter felt from a Reds fan standpoint, today's steamrolling by the light-hitting Indians brings up some questions that this team will need to consider if they truly hope to contend.
The Cincinnati Reds go for the series win tonight against the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second game of their three-game series.
The Cincinnati Reds hope to break their seven-game losing streak tonight in a 10:10 p.m. start against the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. Before you surrender to the notion that this is shaping up as a no-win situation, keep in mind that the Dodgers have lost five of their last seven. After their 13-2 start, L.A. has come back to earth a bit. Cody Bellinger is injured and out of the lineup. As you'll see below, Manager Dave Roberts' lineup tonight is not exactly Murderer's Row.
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.
