    The Reds scored one run on a Jay Bruce RBI single in the bottom of the first inning and San Francisco answered back on a sacrifice fly from Angel Pagan in the top of the third. But that’s where the scoring summary stops through nine innings of this NLDS Game 3 at Great American Ball…

  2. Homer Bailey loses no-hitter in sixth inning, Game 3 of NLDS remains tied at 1-1 in Cincy

    Reds right-hander Homer Bailey tossed a no-hitter on September 28 against the Pirates. Only 11 days later, he’s been almost equally as dominant. And on a much grander stage. Bailey carried a no-no into the sixth inning of this NLDS Game 3 against the Giants and has used just 77 pitches through those six frames…

    If the Giants want to remain alive in the 2012 postseason, they’ll have to get rolling soon. The hot-hitting Reds jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning of Tuesday night’s NLDS Game 3 against the Giants and have now scored first in all three games of this five-game set. Zack Cozart walked,…

  4. Johnny Cueto diagnosed with mild oblique strain, remains on Reds’ roster for now

    cueto getty

    Johnny Cueto left his Game 1 start in the first inning with what was initially said to be back spasms, but the Reds have diagnosed him with a mild right oblique strain. Not only do they remain undecided about removing Cueto from the playoff roster–which would make him ineligible to return before the World Series–the…

    Oct 9, 2012, 10:30 AM EDT

    Division Series - Cincinnati Reds v San Francisco Giants - Game Two

    Today marks the first day when a team could be eliminated from the division series. The Athletics and the Giants are both in action and both face 0-2 deficits. It’s do or die time, Bay Area baseball fans. The Giants find themselves in Ohio of all places, facing a pitcher who tossed a no-hitter 11…

  7. For the Reds it’ll be Homer Bailey in Game 3

    Oct 8, 2012, 10:00 AM EDT

    Homer Bailey AP

    Johnny Cueto only threw eight pitches in Game 1 of the NLDS on Saturday because of back spasms. Because of the nearly non-outing, there was hope that he could come back to pitch Game 3.  That’s not happening, though: last night Dusty Baker announced that it would be Homer Bailey. The Reds are being cautious with…

    Oakland Athletics v Detroit Tigers - Game Two

    Tigers 5, Athletics 4: Don Kelly with the walkoff? Sure, why not? The A’s are in a deep hole now, down 2-0 in a best of five. How quickly the magic pixie dust from a late regular season run fades. Nationals 3, Cardinals 2: Gio Gonzalez walked the world, but the Nats rallied and Mike…

  10. Offense’s disappearing act leaves Giants on cusp of elimination

    Oct 8, 2012, 1:16 AM EDT

    Buster Posey

    The stunning thing about the Giants’ success this year was the way the offense fueled the team in the second half, even with All-Star Game MVP Melky Cabrera gone due to suspension. The Giants ranked third in the NL with 380 runs scored in the second half. Only the Brewers (392) and Nationals (383) were…

  11. Bronson Arroyo baffles Giants as Reds cruise to 2-0 series lead

    Oct 8, 2012, 12:57 AM EDT

    Bronson Arroyo

    After 13 years in the bigs, Bronson Arroyo finally has a postseason victory to his credit. He was nearly perfect for seven innings Sunday in combining with two relievers on a two-hit shutout as the Reds topped the Giants 9-0. The Reds will take a 2-0 series lead with them as they go home for…

  12. Reds sporting 4-0 lead over Giants after six

    Oct 7, 2012, 11:36 PM EDT

    Joey Votto

    Bronson Arroyo finally yielded a baserunner when Brandon Belt singled in the fifth, but he’s retired 18 of 19 through six innings and the Reds are up 4-0 on the Giants. After Ryan Ludwick‘s solo homer in the second, the Reds got to Madison Bumgarner for three runs in the fourth to break the game…

  13. Bronson Arroyo is looking… good?

    Oct 7, 2012, 10:32 PM EDT

    Bronson Arroyo

    Awful MLB Fan Cave commercial aside, Bronson Arroyo‘s postseason is off to a great start, as he’s shut the Giants down for three innings with the Reds on top 1-0 in Game 2 of the NLDS. A Ryan Ludwick homer off Madison Bumgarner has accounted for the only run. Making Arroyo his No. 2 starter…

    Reds ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 victory over the Giants after just eight pitches because of back spasms. He appeared to be experiencing a considerable amount of discomfort while he sauntered from the mound to the visitors dugout, but some positive early signs have given hope to the Cincinnati…

  16. Matt Cain proves beatable in postseason for first time

    Oct 7, 2012, 1:18 AM EDT

    Matt Cain, Jay Bruce

    The Giants were so dominant in the 2010 postseason that Matt Cain had no chance to match Cole Hamels‘ feat from 2008. Hamels went 4-0 and his team won all five of his starts as the Phillies marched to a World Series victory. Cain, on the other hand, pitched just three times as the Giants…

  17. Brandon Phillips’ star turn guides Reds to Game 1 win

    Oct 7, 2012, 1:05 AM EDT

    Brandon Phillips, Marco Scutaro

    Sure he’s a two-time All-Star, but maybe Brandon Phillips is feeling a little anonymous in Cincinnati. He certainly increased his profile Saturday as the Reds beat the Giants 5-2 in Game 1 of the NLDS. Let’s run through the highlights: – Phillips opened the scoring in the third with a two-run homer off Matt Cain.…

  18. Buster Posey gets Giants on the board with solo shot

    Oct 6, 2012, 11:51 PM EDT

    buster posey getty

    The Giants’ offense was dormant through the first five innings of this NLDS Game 1 despite the early exit of one Johnny Cueto. But it woke up in the sixth. MVP candidate Buster Posey hit a leadoff homer over the left field wall, then Hunter Pence smoked a Mat Latos pitch that was caught by…

    The Reds lost their ace in the bottom of the first inning to a back injury, but they have an early lead in this NLDS Game 1 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Drew Stubbs hit a leadoff single in the top of the third inning, then Brandon Phillips waited on a hanging curveball from Giants…

  20. Johnny Cueto departs Game 1 of NLDS due to back spasms

    johnny cueto getty

    Brutal development for the Reds out in San Fran. Staff ace Johnny Cueto was lifted from Saturday night’s NLDS Game 1 against the Giants just eight pitches in after appearing to tweak his side or back on a delivery to No. 2 hitter Marco Scutaro. Cueto immediately hunched over after the toss and walked off…

Matt Cain and Johnny Cueto are set to square off in the series opener on Saturday night. Bumgarner will be opposed by Bronson Arroyo. The Reds…

    Oct 4, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Billy Hamilton

    Fastest man in baseball Billy Hamilton has spent his four-year pro career as a shortstop, but reviews of his defense there have always been mixed and the Reds have decided the 21-year-old prospect’s amazing speed can be more of an asset in center field. Hamilton will officially start his transition from shortstop to center field…

    Athletics 12, Rangers 5: Oakland shocks the world. No one on the planet had them pegged as a playoff team and, as recently as a week ago, no one figured they had a chance in hell at the division crown. Well, that’s what you get for pegging and figuring. As for the Rangers … just,…
