Reds offense struggles again in 3-1 loss to Braves

The Reds were at least able to get base runners, though they couldn’t drive them in.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

This wasn’t the best game he has pitched this season, and he mostly worked out of trouble all night, but Tanner Roark was able to limit damage and keep the Reds in a game where he was let down by the offense and a costly defensive miscue. Roark hasn’t been as flashy as Luis Castillo or Sonny Gray, but he has kept runs off the board for the most part...

Braves at Reds, Game 2 - Preview and Lineups

Tanner Roark takes the mound.

The 1st round of the 2015 MLB Draft was an interesting one for both the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves. Both opted to select high school talent with their prized selection, though there’s a bit of a thread connecting each pick.

The Reds selected catcher Tyler Stephenson with their pick, #11 overall, while the Braves turned to righty pitcher Mike Soroka with theirs at #28. Stephenson hails from Kennesaw, GA - suburban Atlanta - while Soroka is a native of...

Farmers Only: Manzanero Goes Deep Thrice Which Is Very Nice!

Senzel also returns to action and Jose Siri walks three times.

Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night

Pabel Manzanero - 3 for 4, 3 HR, 4 RBI

Dang. That’s good. Jose Siri was going to win for just walking three times but nope.

Louisville Bats 2, Durham Bulls 9

Well, Vladimir “Saggy Glutes” Gutierrez wasn’t goot. Not goot at all. He allowed five earned runs over five innings on six hits, three walks, while striking out four. Big Sally Romano struck out one in 1.1 scoreless...

Reds slug out a good ol’ good one with the Braves, win 7-6

That was a fun baseball game to watch. I liked it!

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

It was a team effort, really. Yasiel Puig was 2-4 with a home run. Jose Peraza had a big clutch two-run double. Joey Votto was on base four times. Sonny Gray struck out nine. Robert Stephenson, David Hernandez, Amir Garrett, and Raisel Iglesias were all slicing up eyeballs.

Key Plays The Reds did not mess around this evening. They got to Kevin Gausman right away as Jesse Winker poked a...

Watch: Yasiel Puig launches moonshot for first HR at home with Reds

Yasiel Puig is nearly one month into his career with the Cincinnati Reds. And on Tuesday, the home fans got a good glimpse of what he can do. In the bottom of the first inning of Tuesday night’s game against the Atlanta Braves, Puig launched a monstrous two-run homer that hit against the facing of the upper deck. That’s everything that anyone will ever need to know about how strong Puig is. The Great American Ball Park is known as a hitter’s park. Even still, going into right-center...

Reds place Matt Kemp on injured list, call up Phil Ervin

The Reds’ left fielder was diagnosed with a broken rib.

On Sunday afternoon, Cincinnati Reds’ left fielder Matt Kemp had to leave the game after hitting the wall while attempting to make a catch. He was initially diagnosed with a “chest wall contusion” and was listed as day-to-day. But as the Reds returned home from their trip out west, they were able to release more information on the extent of his injury. He was officially diagnosed with a broken rib and was placed on the 10-day...

A home game? What’s that?

The Cincinnati Reds were able to land Sonny Gray from the New York Yankees this past winter in part due to Gray’s horrendous struggles pitching in his home park. He excelled away from Yankee Stadium in his brief stint there, but while wearing pinstripes he, for some reason, just ran into tremendously bad form.

In the extremely early going with the Reds, Gray hasn’t yet found his footing in home starts just yet, though he’s still managed to keep his ERA...

Reds OF Matt Kemp hits IL with broken rib

Cincinnatti Reds outfielder Matt Kemp left Sunday’s game early with a chest wall contusion. On Tuesday, he was placed on the injured list. The Reds have since made the move official. In a corresponding roster move, they announced that Phillip Ervin has been brought up from Triple-A to replace him on the roster. John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer added that Kemp has a broken rib. In 2018, Kemp hit .290/.338/.481 with 21 home runs for the Los Angeles Dodgers. His first year with the Reds...

Nick Senzel set to make his 2019 debut tonight

The next chapter in The Legend of Senzelda begins this evening. But when is he coming to Senzennati?

This is one of those things where I’m going to get you all sugared up about something cool and exciting and then immediately kill the buzz by focusing on the arcane labor relations and corporate non-speak that are adjunct to it. This is Red Reporter: The Phantom Menace.

Nick Senzel has been nursing a sore ankle for the last month or so, but he is now officially ready to get into some real...

Could launch angle be the culprit for the Reds’ offensive futility?

A once-solid team-wide approach at the plate has eroded into catastrophe to start the 2019 season

Ever since David Bell’s hiring as manager began an organizational overhaul of large segments of the coaching staff, the Cincinnati Reds have been discussed as a team that is finally getting in tune with advanced analytics. The approach the team had previously been using in virtually every aspect of the game was outdated, and there was now a group of people in place to take them by the hand and...

Farmers Only: Unpack Your Naughton

Jose Siri also gets back into the offensive game.

Brandon Larson Honorary Star Of The Night

Packy Naughton - 6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 9 K

The former 9th Round pick out of Virginia Tech has really been proving a bargain so far in his young career. He’s shown so far an ability to limit the walks while inducing limited contact, homers, and striking out a good amount of batters. This his his first crack at A+ and he’s doing spectacularly well with only five earned runs allowed in 23.2...

Farmers Only Weekend Harvest - Lucas Sims strikes out everyone

The righty had his good stuff working in a brilliant outing for the Bats.

The Brandon Larson Honorary Star of the Weekend

Lucas Sims never really had a shot to make the Opening Day roster for the Cincinnati Reds this spring, but at just 24 years old still, he’s got the talent and pedigree to still be on the radar for a call-up in some role both this year and down the road.

His start on Saturday showed that potential in a big, big way, as he struck out an absurd 13 batters in 5.2 IP in one...

This was not how 2019 was supposed to go

Selective endpoints on the 2019 Cincinnati Reds: Games 1-18.

It’s funny how expectations can shape how you view a team’s performance. A 6-12 start in any of the last few years would have been a little more understandable. It wouldn’t have been any more fun than a 6-12 start in 2019, but we all didn’t expect the Reds to be very good so we understood a poor start. 2019 was supposed to be different, though. The front office made changes to improve the team and hopefully compete for a...

Reds drop series finale to Padres 4-3

Close, but no cigar.

The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

A surface look at Sunday’s outing from Tyler Mahle won’t exactly raise too many eyebrows. The young Cincinnati Reds righty was charged with 4 ER in 6 IP, and scattered 7 H in the process. That said, with just a little bit of help from his defense, that day could well have been much, much better - and it certainly finished in such a fashion.

Mahle fanned 9 and did not issue a single walk, and after the 4-run 3rd...

Reds at Padres, Game 4 - Preview and Lineups

The Reds go for a rare 4-game sweep on the West Coast.

If it feels as if it’s been forever since the Cincinnati Reds were back home in GABP, well, you’re almost correct. The club last played a ‘home’ home game on April 11th, having since spent time in Monterrey, Mexico, Los Angeles, and now San Diego, but on Sunday they’ll wrap this whirlwind trip and head home - hopefully on the heels of a four-game sweep of the Padres.

They’ll need another solid outing from Tyler Mahle to get...

Castillo pitches Reds to third straight win over Padres, 4-2

The Reds’ ace got just enough offense for a comfortable road win on Saturday.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

In an alternate universe, Luis Castillo pitches this game for the San Diego Padres.

After that trade he was a part of to move Andrew Cashner and Colin Rea to the Miami Marlins, Rea’s arm is never revealed to be toast, and Castillo sticks with the Padres. He emerges as the leader of the Padres’ increasingly terrifying group of young pitchers, and probably makes a...
