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

    May 23, 2012, 5:59 AM EST

    San Diego Padres v St. Louis Cardinals

    Cardinals 4, Padres 0: Tough break for San Diego to have Adam Wainwright figure it out and throw a four-hit shutout while they were in town, but I really do need them to go on a bad skid right now. I’m taking my kids to their first major league game when we go to San…

  2. Reds fan catches back-to-back homers

    Why, this is improbable. Reds fan Caleb Lloyd caught two home run balls last night. On back-to-back homers: The 20-year-old junior from Thomas More College was in left field when Reds pitcher Mike Leake hit his first career homer in the fourth inning. The ball went directly to Lloyd, who had never caught a ball at a…

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

    May 22, 2012, 6:10 AM EST

    Giancarlo Stanton

    Marlins 7, Rockies 4: Jamie Moyer pitched in his 50th different major league park. But he may have given up his longest most hellacious homer ever. Giancarlo Stanton hit a grand slam that went 438 feet in basically a straight line and broke the friggin’ scoreboard. Roy Hobbs stuff, there. Gave the Marlins the lead and,…

  4. Aroldis Chapman arrested in Ohio for driving 93 mph on suspended license

    Aroldis Chapman mugshot

    One day after officially being named the Reds’ closer, Aroldis Chapman is in some hot water. According to NBC affiliate WLTW, Chapman was arrested in Ohio early Monday morning after speeding while driving with a suspended license. Chapman was pulled over after being clocked at 93 mph in his 2010 Mercedes S63. That probably doesn’t…

    Max Scherzer

    If I missed something important in one of these it’s because I was less plugged-in than usual yesterday. My daughter Mookie had her dance recital. Both ballet and jazz, which required me to sit through two (2)  separate shows. I kid you not: four hours of sitting in an auditorium to watch eight minutes of…

  6. The Reds are making Aroldis Chapman their closer

    May 20, 2012, 11:09 AM EST

    Sean Marshall has surrendered 22 hits and eight earned runs in 14 1/3 innings this year, struggling to solidify the Reds’ ninth-inning role. So changes are being considered at the end of the Cincinnati ‘pen. According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, Reds manager Dusty Baker spoke Saturday “about switching Aroldis Chapman into the…

  7. Scott Rolen might be done

    May 19, 2012, 7:28 PM EST

    rolen getty

    CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman provides the insight: There is no timetable for injured veteran third baseman Scott Rolen‘s return to the Reds, and there seems to be an uncertainty now whether he will be able to make it back at all. “I really don’t know” is how Reds manager Dusty Baker responded when asked Saturday about…

  8. Settling the Score: Friday’s results

    May 19, 2012, 8:47 AM EST

    A.J. Ellis AP

    A.J. Ellis continues to take advantage of his first chance at regular playing time in the big leagues. Ellis went 1-for-4 with two RBI and a walk-off walk in a 6-5 win over the Cardinals last night as the Dodgers improved to a major-league best 26-13 on the year. Of course, walks are nothing new…

  9. Andy Pettitte beats Reds with eight scoreless innings

    May 18, 2012, 9:55 PM EST

    Seattle Mariners v New York Yankees

    It didn’t take Andy Pettitte long to find his mojo. He struck out nine in eight scoreless innings Friday as the Yankees beat the Reds 4-0 in the second start of his comeback. The Reds’ dysfunctional offense was no better tonight with designated hitter Ryan Ludwick batting in Bronson Arroyo‘s place. Manager Dusty Baker’s switch…

  10. Cubs drop Chris Volstad and his 7.46 ERA from the rotation

    May 18, 2012, 3:15 PM EST

    Chris Volstad

    Chris Volstad has been booted from the Cubs’ rotation and optioned to Triple-A after the 25-year-old right-hander went 0-6 with a 7.46 ERA in eight starts. Volstad’s secondary numbers aren’t nearly as bad as his hideous ERA and he was generally a decent back-of-the-rotation starter for the Marlins from 2008-2011, but it’s tough to stick…

  11. Dusty Baker has blown my friggin’ mind

    May 18, 2012, 2:31 PM EST

    Dusty Baker

    Dusty Baker is going to use Ryan Ludwick as his designated hitter against the Yankees this weekend.  This despite the fact that Ludwick is hitting terribly lately.  Why, Dusty?  Why are you using Ludwick? “I know everybody wants me to play the guy who’s hot, but what happens when the guy who’s hot gets cold…

  12. Aroldis Chapman is gonna be a setup man forever, I guess

    May 17, 2012, 11:01 AM EST

    Aroldis Chapman Getty

    Danny Knobler has a column up today asking a question a lot of Reds fans have probably been asking themselves for some time: why in the heck is Aroldis Chapman still the Reds’ setup guy? He hasn’t allowed a run all year. He has retired 22 of his last 24 hitters. He has a K/BB ratio…

  13. Mets designate reliever D.J. Carrasco for assignment

    May 17, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Carrasco_D.J.

    Within minutes of D.J. Carrasco serving up a homer to Todd Frazier last night the Mets announced that they’d designated the veteran reliever for assignment, removing him from the 40-man roster. When the Mets signed Carrasco to a two-year, $2.4 million deal last offseason it seemed like a solid pickup, as he’d posted a sub-4.00…

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

    May 17, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Atlanta Braves v Colorado Rockies

    Rockies 6, Diamondbacks 1: I took my bike out for a spin for the first time in a while last evening. It was a nice ride on a nice night. At least apart from the crazy, over-the-handlebars wreck I got into at the corner of Alpath and Johnston Road. There were no apparent injuries at…

  15. Davey Johnson’s Daily “Henry Rodriguez is still our closer” update

    May 15, 2012, 10:00 AM EST

    San Diego Padres v Washington Nationals

    After Henry Rodriguez gave up that walkoff grand slam to Joey Votto on Sunday, Nationals manager Davey Johnson made it clear that Rodriguez is still the closer.  He had to do it again last night: “I still have utmost confidence in Henry,” Johnson said after the game. “That was his third day in a row going…

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

    May 15, 2012, 5:54 AM EST

    Bryce Harper, Nick Hundley, Larry Vanover

    Nationals 8, Padres 5: Bryce Harper golfed one more than 400 feet to straightaway center for his first ever major league homer. He also struck out on four pitches to Joe Thatcher and launched a really loud f-bomb. I love him for both reasons, frankly. And I love how the back end of the Nats…

  17. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 14, 2012, 5:40 AM EST

    Joey Votto

    Reds 9, Nationals 6: Joey Votto hit three homers including a walkoff grand slam.  Yeah, that’ll play. The back end of the Nats bullpen continues to be horrific. Marlins 8, Mets 4: Earlier in the day Giancarlo Stanton hit a walkoff slam of his own capping a six-run bottom of the ninth for Miami. Heath…

  18. Joey Votto: solo homer, solo homer, walkoff grand slam

    May 13, 2012, 8:39 PM EST

    Joey Votto, Jesus Flores

    Let’s see Josh Hamilton match this one. Already with two solo homers on the day, Joey Votto hit a walkoff grand slam off Henry Rodriguez to give the Reds a 9-6 win over the Nationals on Sunday. It was just the second homer to a left-handed batter allowed by Rodriguez in 112 2/3 career innings.…

  19. Scott Rolen: “I’m hurting, I’m in pain”

    May 12, 2012, 9:27 PM EST

    Scott Rolen

    Reds third baseman Scott Rolen was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with pain in his chronically-troublesome left shoulder. And it sure sounds like this is going to be an extended absence: Rolen: ‘I’m hurting, I’m in pain. I’m not healthy right now. As much as I want to help the team, I’m hurting…

  20. Chase Headley denies report of 2011 scuffle over ballpark dimensions

    May 12, 2012, 2:15 PM EST

    Chase Headley AP

    Earlier this week, ESPN’s Tim Koewn opened a story about ballpark dimensions by relaying an anecdote about a scuffle in the Padres’ clubhouse early last year. Mike Adams, who now pitches for the Rangers, allegedly lashed out in a postgame rant, telling the team’s hitters to stop complaining about the dimensions at the pitcher-friendly PETCO…

  21. Kansas City’s Kelvin Herrera is MLB’s new hardest thrower

    May 9, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Kelvin Herrera

    Averaging a cool 99.1 mph with his fastball, Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera has taken over as the league’s hardest thrower since being called up last month. Here’s the top 10, according to Fangraphs data: 99.1 – Herrera 98.6 – Andrew Cashner (Padres) 98.4 – Henry Rodriguez (Nationals) 96.8 – Nate Jones (White Sox) 96.8 –…

  22. Zack Greinke knocks the Reds down, but John Axford lets ‘em back up

    May 9, 2012, 5:50 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Milwaukee Brewers

    Zack Greinke pitched eight shutout innings against the Reds this afternoon. He allowed only two hits. He struck out 11.  That’ll get you a win most days.  But not today. That’s because Johnny Cueto pitched seven shutout innings himself and had better help from his bullpen and the Fates. The Reds beat the Brewers 2-1.…

  23. Bryce Harper moves to the second spot in Nationals lineup

    May 8, 2012, 5:12 PM EST

    Bryce Harper

    Bryce Harper joined Ken Griffey Jr., Andruw Jones, and B.J. Upton as the only 19-year-olds to bat third in a big-league game since 1980, but now he’s on the move in the Nationals’ lineup again. Harper, who debuted as a No. 7 hitter before shifting to the No. 3 slot, is batting No. 2 tonight…

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

    May 8, 2012, 6:05 AM EST

    Justin Turner, Jordany Valdespin

    Mets 5, Phillies 2: I had been agitating for Jonathan Papelbon to pitch more. Specifically in tie games.  Well, he did here and gave up a game-losing three-run homer to Jordany Valdespin. I suppose we’ll let Cholly run the team from here on out. Marlins 4, Astros 0: Carlos Zambrano with the three-hit shutout pushes his ERA…

  25. And That Happened: Sunday’s scores and highlights

    May 7, 2012, 5:44 AM EST

    Chris Davis

    Orioles 9, Red Sox 6: Just your standard seventeen inning affair in which a first baseman is the winning pitcher, after throwing two shutout innings and and outfielder is the losing pitcher after giving up a three-run homer . Chris Davis shut out the Red Sox for the 16th and 17th innings, striking out two.…
