Dan Straily strikes out 11, but Reds again fall to Dodgers, 3-1

A loss is a loss, of course of course. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The idea of asking yourself in May "where would the Cincinnati Reds be without Dan Straily?" given the team's projected starting staff and recent prospect acquisitions would've been hilariously dumb to ask back in, say, February.  That's in part because Anthony DeSclafani, Raisel Iglesias, and Michael Lorenzen were healthy at that point, and also in part because Straily wasn't even a Red until late March. That said, Straily's been the resident ace of the Reds' staff, the lone true dependable...

Dodgers beat Reds, 3-1, behind Kazmir to complete series sweep

Scott Kazmir used the words “embarrassing” and “unacceptable” to describe last Friday night’s start, when the Dodgers left-hander gave up five runs in 52/3 innings and issued a career-high seven walks at San Diego. The adjectives were far more flattering Wednesday night, when Kazmir carved up the...

Cincinnati Reds links - First trade of the season

Tuesday links! Yesterday marked both the first tangible big league trade rumor of the year for the Cincinnati Reds - that the Kansas City Royals have their eyes on Jay Bruce - and it also saw the Reds strike their first trade of any kind of the 2016 season.  Cincinnati sent Dayton Dragons pitcher Franderlin Romero to the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for a pair of international bonus pool slots.  No, that does not mean the Reds now own two new posh lounge chairs by the faux waterfall on a rooftop in Dubai.  The Enquirer's Zach Buchanan has a solid breakdown of what the Reds received in...

Dodgers 1, Reds 0 | Kershaw dazzles

LOS ANGELES -- Clayton Kershaw bailed out the Los Angeles Dodgers' exhausted bullpen with his third shutout of the season, and he was quick about it, too. The left-hander allowed two hits and struck out seven on 102 pitches in a 1-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Kershaw retired his final 17 batters after issuing just his fifth walk of the season to Joey Votto leading off the fourth inning.adcelannotate = {"mobilepaywallcategory" : "MOBILE_PREM-SPORTS","nativepaywallcategory" : "NATIVE_PREM-SPORTS"};

Clayton Kershaw shuts out Cincinnati, Dodgers top Reds 1-0

Brandon Finnegan was solid, but Clayton Kershaw he was not. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Vin Scully Honorary Star of the Game Brandon Finnegan allowed just a single earned run in his eight - yes, eight - innings of work as the Cincinnati Reds starter on Monday, as impressive an outing as the team has seen through the first fourth of the 2016 season.  Finnegan's defense let him down three times via errors, too, and the lone run came in part thanks to an errant throw that didn't really need to happen.  He induced four double play balls and allowed just five hits, though he did walk more Los...
