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.
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.
Joey Votto hit his 300th career home run and Eugenio Suárez snapped an 0-26 slump in the Cincinnati Reds win over the Chicago Cubs.
The Cincinnati Reds look to break a five-game losing streak this afternoon against the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium.
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.
Today we're looking back at what went right and wrong for Wade Miley, Eugenio Suárez at shortstop, and Sean Doolittle's struggles.
Cincinnati Reds left-handed pitcher Wade Miley left Thursday night's game with an apparent leg injury in his spring training debut.
Wade Miley missed most of the 2020 season, and when he was on the mound he struggled. Where does that leave him on the Reds pitching staff?
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?
