  1. Play of the Day: Carlos Gomez robs Jay Bruce’s three-run home run

    Sep 15, 2013, 7:55 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez already has one of the three NL Gold Gloves for outfielders locked up, but he decided to pad his resume in case anyone was still on the fence about his defensive prowess. With two runners on base with two outs and the game tied 5-5 in the ninth inning, Jay…

    The Reds have a nice cushion on the Nationals for the second NL Wild Card spot and are only 2 1/2 games back in the National League Central division. Now comes a potential boost for the rotation. According to C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, right-hander Johnny Cueto will start for the first time…

    There are only two weeks remaining on the 2013 regular season schedule and the National League Central remains a heated three-team race. The Cardinals couldn’t solve Mariners left-hander James Paxton on Saturday night in St. Louis and fell 4-1. The Pirates beat the Cubs 2-1 in an afternoon game at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park with young…

  4. Joey Votto hit a home run very hard and very far

    Sep 14, 2013, 8:20 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v Cincinnati Reds

    According to ESPN’s Home Run Tracker, there have only been eight other home runs hit this year that went as far as the 470-foot blast Reds first baseman Joey Votto hit this afternoon against Brewers reliever Michael Blazek. Shin-Soo Choo had reached with a one-out walk and remained on first as Votto came to the…

    Johnny Cueto, Dusty Baker, Devin Mesoraco, Scott Barry

    Johnny Cueto has been out since June 28 due to a recurrence of a lat strain, but he’s nearly ready to help the Reds as they attempt to maintain their lead for a Wild Card spot. According to C. Trent Rosencrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Cueto threw another bullpen session this morning. The Reds will…

  6. Teddy the Reds batboy has hit the big time

    Sep 13, 2013, 2:39 PM EDT

    reds logo

    You may remember Teddy Kremer, the Reds bat boy who, back in April, told Todd Frazier to hit a home run. After which Todd Frazier hit a home run. After that Teddy got a lot of media exposure. Maybe because he’s better than Dusty Baker is at getting Todd Frazier to do things. I don’t…

  7. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 12, 2013, 7:12 AM EDT

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  8. Johnny Cueto on starting or relieving for Reds: “I’ll do whatever they want”

    Sep 11, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    johnny cueto getty

    Johnny Cueto threw 60 pitches of live batting practice to Reds teammate this morning and afterward pronounced himself “ready” to come off the disabled list following nearly three months on the sidelines with a lat injury. As for whether he’ll resume starting or move to the bullpen, Cueto told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer:…

  9. Tony Cingrani pulled from start with more back problems

    Sep 10, 2013, 9:05 PM EDT

    tony cingrani getty

    Tony Cingrani spent 11 days on the disabled list from late August to early September because of a lower back strain. And the issue won’t go away. According to beat writer C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the rookie left-hander was lifted from his start Tuesday night against the Cubs with back spasms. Cingrani…

  10. Johnny Cueto throws batting practice, nears sim game

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    Johnny Cueto took another step in his recovery from a strained lat muscle yesterday, throwing 30 pitches of live batting practice to Reds teammates. Jeremy Warnemuende of MLB.com reports that a simulated game is next on the schedule, at which point Cueto could be cleared to return. And there’s been speculation that the Reds will…

  11. A lefty hit two homers off Clayton Kershaw

    Sep 9, 2013, 8:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Cincinnati Reds

    A lot of guys hit two homers in a game. Happens a couple of times a week, more or less. But Jay Bruce doing it last night was a bit more notable: his bombs were the first and second homers hit by a left-hander off Clayton Kershaw all season long. Kershaw may normally be murder…

    Sep 9, 2013, 6:07 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 9, Pirates 2: And the sweep. Four losses in a row overall for Pittsburgh which is back in wild card territory, looking up at the Cards, still stuck on 81 wins.  Michael Wacha pitched seven shutout innings, allowing only two hits, and drove in two runs to boot. He hasn’t allowed a run in 19 and two-thirds…

  13. Joey Votto has reached base in nine consecutive trips to the plate

    Sep 7, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Reds first baseman Joey Votto last made an out in the eighth inning on Thursday in the series finale against the Cardinals. Since then, he has gone 4-for-4 with five walks in nine trips to the plate against Dodger pitchers. Last night, in a 3-2 victory, Votto drew a walk off of Chris Capuano, singled…

  14. Mark Trumbo is not bothered if you point out his low OBP

    Sep 6, 2013, 2:49 PM EDT

    Mark Trumbo

    Tweet about Brandon Phillips‘ low on-base percentage and he flips out and calls you names.  Talk to Mark Trumbo for a little while and he brings up his low OBP and says that it’s a weakness in his game he’s working to improve: “I understand it,” Trumbo said of getting a bad rap for his…

  15. Johnny Cueto as a reliever would be interesing

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Johnny Cueto Getty

    Johnny Cueto had a 3.33 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 41/14 K/BB ratio through 48 and two-thirds innings this season, but he’s been sidelined since June 28 with a strained lat muscle. He threw a bullpen session the other day which was described as “impressive” and looks poised to rejoin the Reds soon. But he may do…

  16. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 6, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    Chicago White Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Orioles 3, White Sox 1: The Orioles win and, frankly, I’m going to credit playing at home. Yep, nothing like a home game. Makes all the difference. And if you think for a minute I’m irrationally beating this into the ground, go take a gander at the NFL Industrial Complex’s collective and concerted moaning and…

  17. Reds make it three out of four, defeat Cardinals 6-2

    Sep 5, 2013, 10:30 PM EDT

    Todd Frazier

    If they hadn’t gotten so bunt happy on Wednesday, the Reds might have made it a clean sweep. As is, they should be pretty pleased to have taken three out of four from the visiting Cardinals with their 6-2 win on Thursday. Todd Frazier hit two of the Reds’ four homers in support of Tony…

  18. The Reds got bunt-happy last night and it cost them dearly

    Sep 5, 2013, 9:45 AM EDT

    St. Louis Cardinals v Cincinnati Reds

    If the Reds fall a game short of the Cardinals and/or Pirates — or, heaven forbid, the Diamondbacks or Nationals — they might want to look at last night’s game against the Cardinals as the reason why. It was a night the Red squandered multiple opportunities thanks to ill-advised bunts. The first weird attempt did…

  19. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 4, 2013, 7:13 AM EDT

    Jon Lester

    It’s cool and crisp here in America’s Heartland and there were some games last night that felt like the playoffs. Can we please just skip September and move straight on into October? Would anyone object to this? Red Sox 2, Tigers 1: An ALCS preview? Jon Lester outduels Max Scherzer in a tight game with…

  20. Johnny Cueto throws 35-pitch bullpen session

    Sep 3, 2013, 11:39 PM EDT

    cueto getty

    From C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto threw 35 pitches off a mound Tuesday at Great American Ball Park and looked “impressive.” Cueto has been on the shelf since departing his June 28 start against the Rangers with a severely-strained right lat muscle. He is aiming to…

  21. Video: Billy Hamilton picks up first career stolen base

    Sep 3, 2013, 9:48 PM EDT

    billy hamilton getty

    Reds speedster Billy Hamilton made his major league debut as a pinch-runner on Tuesday night after a Ryan Ludwick single to center field and stole second base off Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina. Molina probably would have had him if the throw was on line, but knowledge of Hamilton’s base-stealing prowess likely caused the five-time Gold…

  22. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 3, 2013, 6:25 AM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v Houston Astros

    Twins 10, Astros 6: Rookie and independent league veteran Chris Colabello homered twice including a grand slam to break a 6-6 tie in the ninth. Entering Sunday he was on an 0 for 23 skid and now here he is having the best day of his life. Probably the best day he’ll ever have at a ballpark.…

  23. The Cardinals had a nightmare Labor Day

    Sep 2, 2013, 4:12 PM EDT

    Screen Shot 2013-09-02 at 4.12.45 PM

    I bet St. Louis fans are glad that’s over. In addition to losing Yadier Molina mid-game due to a sore left wrist, the Cardinals were walloped by the Reds today, 7-2. Ace Adam Wainwright was shelled for six earned runs in six innings. That’s the second straight awful start for Wainwright since he tossed 128 pitches…

  24. Todd Helton doubles in the seventh for 2,500th career hit

    Sep 1, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Todd Helton

    Long time Rockies first baseman Todd Helton sliced a double down the left field line against Reds reliever Curtis Partch in the bottom of the seventh for his 2,500th career hit. Helton narrowly beat left fielder Chris Heisey‘s throw to second base for the double. There was a brief pause in the game as Helton…

  25. Joey Votto wants to lead the league in OPS and WAR

    Aug 30, 2013, 7:45 PM EDT

    Joey Votto Getty

    At FanGraphs, David Laurila polled a handful (12, to be specific) of Major Leaguers about with which offensive statistic they would like to lead the league. It’s quite fascinating, particularly that the most popular answer was not batting average, runs, or RBI, but OPS. Had you randomly polled 12 players five years ago, I would…
