Wade Miley's seven strong innings were backed by a potent 14-hit Cincinnati Reds offensive onslaught in a 10-3 victory at Great American Ball Park against the visiting Colorado Rockies.
Shogo Akiyama ended the season on a high note, but after an injury, he's come back to less playing time. Will the Reds keep him on the bench going forward?
Jesse Winker's third home run of the game in the top of the ninth inning against Cardinals relief ace Alex Reyes propelled the Cincinnati Reds to a stirring 8-7 victory and a four-game series sweep against St. Louis.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tonight at 7:10 PM, the Cincinnati Reds (14-15) will look to win their first Ohio Cup title since 2014 when they travel north up I-71 for three games against the Cleveland Indians (17-13) this weekend. The Reds are just 23-37 all-time in Cleveland. Tyler Naquin will play in his first career game at Progressive Field as a visitor. Naquin played 325 career games with the Indians.
The Cincinnati Reds have placed Jonathan India on the injured list and recalled outfielder Mark Payton. That's led to an interesting lineup.
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.
The first place Cincinnati Reds (2-1) will kick off a 3-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates (1-2) tonight at 6:40 PM.
