Too Vot-too trot: Reds lose 5-7

Too Vot-too trot: Reds lose 5-7

A couple neat dingers weren’t enough to get over the Adleman hump. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto went 2-5 with a home run and was struck out in the bottom of the ninth by a verrrry shaky called strike 3. It was his 8th dinger of the year so far. Props to Scott Schebler for going 2-3 himself with a home run and a walk, as well as Scooter Gennett’s 2-4 night with a double. Key Plays I always sign up for these on the wrong nights. Deep breath. Cincinnati started the scoring when Scott Schebler pulled a dinger down the line to make it 1-0 in the second...

Joey Votto: I want to be 'unpitchable'

Joey Votto: I want to be 'unpitchable'

It was an interesting question to ask Joey Votto even before he started hitting home runs at an advanced pace. The Cincinnati Reds first baseman has seven homers through his first 22 games, giving him a home run rate of 7.5 percent.

Cubs @ Reds: Lackey vs Arroyo (Game 18)

CHC (10-7): RHP John Lackey (1-2, 4.00) CIN (9-9):  RHP Bronson Arroyo (1-2, 8.40) First pitch: 12:10pmCST Lackey gave up 4 ER in 6 innings and took the loss on Monday in Milwaukee, the Cubs' last loss before they decided to put together a nice little winning streak. He was 2-2 with a 5.33 against the Reds last year.  They know him very well, way too well, with this group of Reds going 44-148 (.297) against him. Votto is 6-20 with a 2 HR, Gennett is 8-21 with a HR, Hamilton is 8-22, Suarez is 8-24, and Cozart is 6-15 with a HR. Dang.Tags: 2017 Season Game Thread

Cubs bats find Reds’ gaps: Chicago wins 12-8

Cubs bats find Reds’ gaps: Chicago wins 12-8

A whole lotta base hits. More from Chicago. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto went 3-5 with a double and a dinger. His OPS is now an even .900. It’s good to have you back, Mr. Votto. Honorable mention is due to Eugenio Suarez for his 3-5 night with two solo home runs. Robert Stephenson had a relatively clean two innings, giving up 2H, 1ER with 0BB and 4K. He could be the next Cody Reed! I mean this in a good way! Key Plays When I volunteered for the recaps, I was like “hey, at least I hope it’ll be a low-scoring affair.” It wasn’t. Cody Reed walked the...

Willson Contreras Crushes A Grand Slam!

What a start to Saturday’s game between the Chicago Cubs and Cincinnati Reds? After the first inning the Reds led 4-3 and after the top of the second inning the Cubs took a 7-4 lead. Anthony Rizzo and Joey Votto each hit three-run home runs in the first, but then Willson Contreras cranked a grand

CHC (8-7): LHP Jon Lester (0-0, 1.00) CIN (9-6*):  RHP Timothy Adleman (0-0, 2.25) First pitch: 6:10pmCST Lester, who jumps over Arrieta again, kept up his string of no-decisions on Sunday, despite another strong outing, this time against the Pirates (7 IP, 0 ER, 3K, 2 BB). Last season, he went 2-1 with a 3.03 in five starts against the Reds. Overall, they are 25-107 (.234) against him. Billy Hamilton is 6-10 with 2 HRs, and Votto is 7-24 with a HR.

Eugenio Suarez is trading fly balls for line drives, and has a smoking hot start to show for it

Eight games into the 2016 season, the Cincinnati Reds actually bore a sneaking resemblance to the way the 2017 squad looks after 14 games. Their record, at 5-3, was better than what was expected of them. Zack Cozart was in the midst of a modest hitting streak to start his season. Joey Votto was scuffling a bit. And Eugenio Suarez was tearing the cover off the ball, to the tune of a .400/.471/.800 line in his first 34 plate appearances. He had more home runs (four) than strikeouts (three), and in the first couple weeks of April, became someone who moved you to the edge of your seat every...

Can Billy Hamilton and Jose Peraza Get On Base Consistently?

Four games into the 2017 season and it looks like the top of the Reds lineup is set with Billy Hamilton and Jose Peraza batting 1-2. With the speed of both players, this could have the potential to be very exciting to watch, especially with Joey Votto and Adam Duvall hitting behind them. But it …
