    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…

  2. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.…

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

    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…

  8. Brandon Phillips launches two-run homer as Reds strike first in NLDS Game 1 vs. Giants

    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…

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

    Oct 6, 2012, 10:04 PM EDT

    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…

  13. Reds moving speedster prospect Billy Hamilton to outfield

    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…

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    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,…

  18. David Price notches 20th win, Johnny Cueto falls short

    Sep 30, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    David Price

    With both of MLB’s remaining 19-game winners making their final starts today, we now know we’ll finish the year with four 20-game winners. The Rays’ David Price got to 20 by beating the White Sox today, but the Reds’ Johnny Cueto was left with a no-decision after allowing three runs — one earned — in…

    Sep 30, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT

    Joel Hanrahan

    Joel Hanrahan has been a rock in the closer’s role these last two seasons, but even he let the Pirates down today as the team completed its collapse. The Reds scored twice in the bottom of the ninth Sunday to beat the Pirates 4-3, dropping Pittsburgh to 77-82 and locking up a 20th consecutive season…

  20. The velocity chart from Homer Bailey’s no-hitter is pretty nuts

    Sep 29, 2012, 3:15 PM EDT

    Homer Bailey Getty

    Courtesy of the outstanding Brooks Baseball, here’s the velocity chart from Homer Bailey‘s no-hitter last night against the Pirates. It’s pretty bananas. Gee, think he knew he had a no-hitter going? (Hat-tip to Jack Moore of CBSSports.com and FanGraphs for bringing it to my attention)

  21. Pittsburgh’s collapse gets an exclamation point with no-no

    Sep 28, 2012, 10:08 PM EDT

    Homer Bailey

    The Pirates appeared to hit rock bottom on Wednesday, when they were shutout primarily by a pitcher they gave up on waivers to the Mets prior to the start of the season (Jeremy Hefner pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing three hits, before rookie Jeurys Familia finished up). As it turned out, that was still just…

    Sep 28, 2012, 9:36 PM EDT

    Homer Bailey AP

    UPDATE: He did it! Homer Bailey has done it. He threw a no-hitter tonight against the Pirates as part of a 1-0 win. Bailey struck out pinch-hitter Brock Holt swinging to begin the ninth before getting pinch-hitter Michael McKenry to pop out to left field for the second out. He then Alex Presley to pop…

    It has to be over for the Brewers now. They just lost 2-1 to the Reds, dropping them four back in the wild card race pending the outcome of tonight’s games.  It was a thin hope they had before — probably no real hope — but even the optimists have to jump ship now. The…

    The Question

    Q: Was this a challenging year for you with Phillies fans not such an easy target? How will you adjust your future trolling? Trolling is like Jiu-Jitsu: you use your opponents’ own momentum against them, cause them to overplay their native tendencies into foolishness. Phillies’ fans’ tendency is to declare their team some unbeatable force…

    Sep 26, 2012, 1:20 PM EDT

    Arizona Diamondbacks v Cincinnati Reds
