Cardinals 4, Reds 1 - Cincinnati drops yet another game in St. Louis, because of course

You probably should've be that one. Unless you're an actual baseball player or manager, of course. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto went 1 for 2 with a ground rule double and a HBP, but he tried to bunt with a runner on, so no. Jay Bruce went 0 for 1 with a walk, a sac fly, an RBI, and a HBP, but it's kind of hard to give a JNMHSotG to a guy who didn't even get a hit in a 4-1 loss. Burke Badenhop threw a scoreless inning that dodged a double, and in the process lowered his ERA down to 4.35 despite people still being hung up on his poor April.  But, yet again,...

Cueto Shuts Down Rockies, Todd Delivers 100th Career HR, Reds Win 5-2

JNHMSotG Johnny Cueto gets the nod here.  In what may be his final start as a Red, Cueto pitched a gem in the toughest pitching park in MLB.  8 innings, 4 hits, 1 walk, 5 strikeouts, and the Rockies didn't even manage to mount a serious threat in any inning Cueto pitched. This game also saw some milestone numbers for a couple Reds stars on offense.  Todd Frazier hit his 100th career HR to give the Reds enough offense to win the game, and Joey Votto collected his 600th career RBI as he continued his otherworldly hitting with a 2-4 night.  Billy Hamilton gets an honorable mention for his...

Rockies 6, Reds 5 - Cincinnati loses on walk-off wild pitch

High altitude, high drama. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto launched a game-tying solo dinger in the Top of the 9th as part of yet another three hit day, and the Cincinnati Reds 1B beat whatever shifts the Colorado Rockies had in store in style.  Votto entered Friday evening's game having gone a billion for a million with a pair of dingers since the All Star Game - for which he was bypassed by fans, coaches, & players - and he kept that on display while the Reds disintegrated yet again. Honorable Mentions are due to:  Tucker Barnhart, who went 1 for 1 with a...

Cubs 6, Reds 5 - Cincinnati blows five run lead to drop second game of doubleheader

That was awful. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto has blasted the doors off the second "half" of the Cincinnati Reds' season, and in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader he had all his vintage skills on full display.  Votto had a pair of singles - one on a two-strike count against nemesis Travis Wood - and he walked three times while back in his now customary second spot in the order.  He's gone 14 for 16 with a pair of dingers and eight walks since the All Star break, and it's been a joy to watch the former MVP put his full arsenal on display. The Reds...

Cleveland 9, Cincinnati 4 - Indians claim Ohio Cup by bashing homers off Reds

Saturday Night's alright for dingering. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The trade deadline is right over there. Squint.  You can see it. With a firesale hanging over the team's head and reigning AL Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber on the mound against them, you probably had every reason to expect the Cincinnati Reds to get their butts handed to them on Saturday night against the Cleveland Indians.  And, if you bet as such, buy me a beer a time or three, would ya? Joey Votto, however, had himself a pretty dang effective evening against one of the toughest RHP's in...

Joey Votto’s 178th Career Homer Moves Him Up to #385 on the All Time Home Run Ladder

Joey Votto climbed up another rung on the ladder of the greatest home run hitters in baseball history last night. He is now well within the top 400 and is tied with a Hall of Famer, an active player and a guy I have never heard of until today. The Hall of Famer was former …

Reds 5, Nationals 2 - Johnny Cueto out-aces Max Scherzer

He aced. He out-aced. He, folks, is an ace among aces. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Joey Votto came a triple away from hitting for the cycle on Tuesday, and he did all of his damage against former Cy Young Award winner and $200+ million man Max Scherzer.  Votto dingered, doubled, singled, drove in three runs on the evening, and the Cincinnati Reds 1B looked as locked in as he's been in nearly a month.  Apparently, he tweaked his swing a bit after video sessions and batting practice uncovered something amiss in this afternoon, and that was enough to have him center...

Aroldis Chapman named to 4th All Star Game

The Reds fireballer will represent in front of his home fans. Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman was named to the National League All Star team on Monday night, joining Todd Frazier as representatives from the team that's hosting this year's contest. This is the 4th time Chapman has been named to an All Star squad, as he's made each team since the 2011 season.  The Reds closer has a 15.5 K/9 through 35.1 IP in 2015, and sports a 1.78 ERA with 16 saves. Joey Votto, Brandon Phillips, and ace Johnny Cueto had all been considered candidates to make this year's squad as well, yet neither...
