  1. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and higlights

    Jul 2, 2012, 5:30 AM EDT

    Ramon Santiago, Austin Jackson

    It was a really rough weekend for people in Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia and Washington D.C. Storms, trees down, power outages and intense heat made it for a really crappy weekend. We were fairly lucky here at Chez Craigy. The power was out for only about 24 hours before coming back Saturday evening.…

  2. All-Star Jay Bruce gives the Giants a walkoff win

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Jay Bruce

    Jay Bruce must have forgotten he was playing in San Francisco. Thinking there was a wall where there was no wall, he gave Angel Pagan a game-winning double as the Giants beat the Reds 4-3 on Sunday. There were two outs in a tie game in the bottom of the ninth when Pagan hit a…

  3. Matt Kemp picks his Home Run Derby squad

    Jul 1, 2012, 8:00 PM EDT

    Carlos Gonzalez

    Squad captain Matt Kemp announced Sunday that he’s chosen the Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez, the Marlins’ Giancarlo Stanton and the Cardinals’ Carlos Beltran to participate alongside himself in the Home Run Derby. Kemp plans to take part in the contest, even though he’s still expected to be on the disabled list as he continues his recovery…

  4. Reds feel they were intentionally snubbed by National League All-Star manager Tony La Russa

    Jul 1, 2012, 5:39 PM EDT

    baker cueto getty

    Tony La Russa, the honorary manager of this year’s National League All-Star team, got to hand-select only nine of the players for his roster. And he had to be sure that every organization was represented. He went with left-hander Wade Miley (as the Diamondbacks’ only rep), outfielder Giancarlo Stanton (as the Marlins’ only rep), Huston…

  5. Austin Jackson, Bryce Harper lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 1, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Bryce Harper

    You knew it was coming. In truth, I think those in charge did a better job of picking this season’s All-Stars than they have in recent years. Still, I have some disagreements, even if none of them are quite as vehement as last season’s. Austin Jackson (OF Tigers) – Jackson’s DL stint probably cost him…

  7. Scott Rolen is having a tough time

    Jul 1, 2012, 11:17 AM EDT

    scott rolen getty

    When Scott Rolen was placed on the disabled list in mid-May after experiencing renewed discomfort in his troublesome left shoulder, many wondered whether that might be it for the veteran third baseman. Whether he might hang up his cleats for good. He didn’t, returning to Cincinnati’s active roster about two weeks ago. But things still…

  8. Yasmani Grandal goes yard twice in historic performance

    Jul 1, 2012, 9:52 AM EDT

    grandal getty

    Anthony Rizzo isn’t the only youngster doing it big. Padres catcher Yasmani Grandal, making his first career major league start, slugged a solo home run from the right side of the plate in the fourth inning of Saturday’s 8-4 defeat of the Rockies. He then hit a two-run shot from the left side of the…

  9. Joey Votto departs game with left knee inflammation

    Jun 30, 2012, 6:31 PM EDT

    votto ap

    From John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer comes word that Reds first baseman Joey Votto made an early exit from Saturday’s game against the Giants after feeling soreness in his left knee. He has been officially diagnosed with left knee inflammation. Votto, 28, is batting .350/.471/.632 with 14 homers and 47 RBI through 333 plate…

  10. Padres demote struggling catcher Nick Hundley, call up Yasmani Grandal

    Jun 30, 2012, 9:36 AM EDT

    Nick Hundley Getty

    The Padres exhibited patience with Nick Hundley in hopes that he would find his way out of his season-long funk. However, after last night’s game, they finally decided to make a change. Hundley, who signed a three-year, $9 million extension with the Padres in March, is headed to Triple-A Tucson. Top prospect catcher Yasmani Grandal…

  11. Madison Bumgarner shines as the Giants toss their fourth straight shutout

    Jun 29, 2012, 8:21 AM EDT

    Cincinnati Reds v San Francisco Giants

    Never before in the long history of the Giants franchise had they thrown four straight shutouts, but they have now. They blanked the Reds 5-0. This after throwing three straight shutouts against the Dodgers. Their scoreless innings streak is now at 36 innings, the longest in team history. The last time the Giants allowed a…

  12. Andrew McCutchen leads the Pirates in everything

    Jun 28, 2012, 2:04 PM EDT

    Andrew McCutchen

    No, really, everything. Andrew McCutchen leads the Pirates in average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, home runs, runs batted in, runs scored, walks (tied with Neil Walker), doubles, triples and stolen bases. Root Sports Pittsburgh points out that he’s the first player to lead a team in all of those categories this late into the season…

  13. Brandon Phillips gets hit in head, leaves game

    Jun 27, 2012, 2:42 PM EDT

    Brandon Phillips

    Three innings after getting hit in the head during Aramis Ramirez‘s attempted steal of second base, Brandon Phillips left Thursday’s game against the Brewers. It was termed a precautionary move, suggesting that Phillips is expected to be fine. Miguel Cairo took over at second base for the Reds. Phillips had an RBI single the half-inning…

  14. Dusty Baker told Aroldis Chapman: no more somersaults

    Jun 27, 2012, 12:25 PM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    More like Dusty Buzzkill, amirite? Reds manager Dusty Baker made sure that closer Aroldis Chapman won’t be doing any more somersaults after finishing a game … Baker talked to Chapman about it and said on Wednesday that it will never happen again. Baker understood that Chapman was happy about getting the save after giving up…

  15. Aroldis Chapman does somersaults — literally — after notching the save

    Jun 27, 2012, 8:49 AM EDT

    Aroldis Chapman

    Rafael Soriano untucking his shirt? Pfft! Child’s play.  Aroldis Chapman did somersaults off the mound after locking down the save against the Brewers last night: In case this video disappears, watch it here. Dusty Baker was not happy with it afterwards, saying “we don’t play like that.” Teammate Ryan Hanigan said “you can’t be doing that…

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

    Jun 27, 2012, 6:15 AM EDT

    arroyo getty

    Reds 4, Brewers 3: Bronson Arroyo had a no-hitter through seven and then ended up with a no-decision. Guess that happens when you ask a starter who usually throws less than seven innings a start to go eight, eh?  Still a nice game until that eighth, and a win for the Redlegs. Giants 2, Dodgers…

  17. Bronson Arroyo loses no-hitter vs. Brewers in eighth inning

    Jun 26, 2012, 9:01 PM EDT

    arroyo getty

    We have an official no-hitter alert in Cincinnati. Reds right-hander Bronson Arroyo, who entered the night with a pedestrian 4.19 ERA, has tossed seven innings against the Brewers without allowing a hit. He’s fanned three and issued zero walks, and the only thing keeping him from being on perfect game watch was a hit-by-pitch of…

  18. The final NL All-Star balloting update before the teams are set

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:30 PM EDT

    All Star Game Logo

    There’s still time to vote, but if it ended now, the NL All-Star team would look like so. Changes to possible starters: Ryan Braun pulled ahead of Melky Cabrera for the third outfield slot, reversing last week’s reversal. Otherwise, the same old same old, with the changes only affecting downballot stuff: CATCHER Buster Posey, Giants:…

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

    Jun 26, 2012, 6:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Youkilis

    Twins 4, White Sox 1: Kevin Youkilis made his Chisox debut and went one for four in a loss and gave us this odd picture of him in a White Sox uniform. Adam Dunn went 0 for 4 and struck out four times, but the list of things he gives less of a crap about…

  20. Mat Latos fans career-high 13 in complete-game victory

    Jun 25, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Mat Latos

    Mat Latos made the most of two extra days of rest, pitching his second career complete game and striking out a career-high 13 batters Monday as the Reds beat the Brewers 3-1. Latos was pushed back to Monday because Reds manager Dusty Baker wanted to slot him in between Mike Leake and Bronson Arroyo in…

  21. Drew Stubbs returns to Reds following oblique injury

    Jun 25, 2012, 5:17 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs Getty

    As expected the Reds activated Drew Stubbs from the disabled list after the center fielder missed the past three weeks with a strained oblique muscle. Stubbs went 1-for-10 on a brief minor-league rehab assignment and figures to resume starting in center field, pushing Chris Heisey back into a corner spot after serving as the primary…

    Derek Norris

    I’m back after a week’s vacation. I wrote up a long sappy version of it last week, but here’s the short version: San Diego for five days, during which I took Mookie and Carlo to their first ever major league game to see the Rangers vs. the Padres last Monday night. It was a doubly…

  23. Drew Stubbs on track to rejoin Reds on Monday

    Jun 23, 2012, 5:31 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs Getty

    Drew Stubbs began a minor league rehab assignment last night with Class A Dayton as he continues to make his way back from a strained left oblique. Stubbs, who has been sidelined since June 5, went 0-for-2 and played five innings in center field. The speedy 27-year-old later told Mark Clements of MLB.com that he…

  24. Tests come back normal after umpire Jerry Layne is hit in head with broken bat

    Jun 22, 2012, 11:30 PM EDT

    Jerry Layne Getty

    UPDATE: Good news. Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports that tests on Layne came back normal. However, he’ll sit out the rest of weekend series as a precaution. 8:58 PM: Scary moment in tonight’s game between the Twins and Reds, as home plate umpire Jerry Layne was hit on the left side of his head by…

  25. Drew Stubbs to begin rehab assignment Friday at Single-A

    Jun 21, 2012, 4:47 PM EDT

    Drew Stubbs

    Out since June 5 with a strained oblique muscle, Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs is scheduled to begin a minor-league rehab assignment tomorrow at Single-A. There’s no official timetable for his return, but Mark Sheldon of MLB.com speculates that Stubbs will likely be back after just 2-3 rehab games if all goes well. He’s eligible…
