Reds at Giants, Game 3: Preview and Lineups

Can Cincinnati salvage a game? It feels like just seconds ago that we were bubbling with optimism about the Cincinnati Reds for the first time in who the hell knows how long. A 6-game win streak, a sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers on a dreaded west coast trip, and visions of sugar plums danced in our heads. Well, a blink later and we’ve seen Joey Votto’s back flare up and send him to the bench, Eugenio Suarez’s ankle roll over and send him to the bench, and we now get to cross our fingers that reclamation project Matt Harvey can salvage a game against the San Francisco Giants to avoid...

Giants beat Reds, thanks in part to Bruce Bochy’s aggressive early-game managing

Pierce Johnson rushed to the bullpen and hurriedly warmed up. It was still the fourth inning, and Giants starter Ty Blach was neither tired nor hurt. Bruce Bochy wasn’t messing around. The Giants were trailing 3-1 and threatening, and Bochy chose not to manage by the book, instead pulling Blach for a pinch-hitter, Pablo Sandoval, and the move was the turning point in Tuesday night’s 5-3 victory over the Reds. Sandoval hit a two-run single to tie the score, and Andrew McCutchen’s fielder’s choice broke the tie. It was a four-run rally...

Reds blow early lead, lose to Giants 5-3

Reds blow early lead, lose to Giants 5-3

Them’s the breaks. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Eugenio Suarez has shrugged off his early-season busted thumb and kept right on raking since returning to the Cincinnati Reds, and on Tuesday that continued to be the case. Even after he gave us all a scare by rolling his ankle diving back into 2B, he ripped a 2-run dinger and a double, and finished the evening having gone 2 for 3 with a walk and a run scored. Heck, he even did so while hitting in the 3-spot on the night while Joey Votto and his balky back got a night of rest. That’s plenty good enough for a JNMHSotG...

Get that win train back a-rollin’! So, maybe the Cincinnati Reds aren’t going to go undefeated ad infinitum. Last night’s loss to the San Francisco Giants cut the win streak down after six games, but with Tyler Mahle on the hill tonight I’m irrationally optimistic that they’ll get back on the smiling side of the scoreboard again - even without Joey Votto. Votto exited last night’s game early with a sore lower back, and he’ll get tonight’s game off to see if another earthquake can shake loose the muscles that are ailing him. Ty Blach will start for the Giants, and the...
