Benches clear as Reds fall to Pirates 3-0

The Pirates did what the Pirates do as they settle for a split in Cincinnati The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Player of the Game When it rains, it pours, and today, Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton poured it on by shutting down the Reds bats en route to a 3-0 Pirates win.  The Reds countered with Keyvius Sampson in his first ever MLB start, becoming approximately the 43rd rookie pitcher to make a start for Cincinnati this season (Is that right?  I think that's right).  Sampson pitched reasonably well, giving up three earned runs on three hits and a walk in five innings.  But...

Reds 4, Pirates 3 - Raisel Iglesias made it past 5 innings to lead Cincinnati past Pittsburgh

Raise hell, Iggy! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Raisel Iglesias has made a habit of breezing through opposing lineups a time or two before running smack dab into a wall of runs, but on Saturday the Cincinnati Reds rookie managed to mitigate much of that past history in his start against the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Iglesias tossed 6.2 innings of 2 ER ball, struck out 5, walked just 2, and allowed just 4 hits in his outing, and he flashed the repertoire of a versatile starter throughout.  Who knows how much more development he's got, but he certainly has the kind of tools...

Jay Bruce, thankfully, is still a Red. Meanwhile, the team has won 3 straight, and looks to continue that tonight against the Pirates. Michael Lorenzen gets the ball after getting his clock cleaned by the Rockies in his last start. He'll face the lefty Jeff Locke. Go...

Reds 15, Pirates 5 - Brandon Phillips has monster 2 HR night to pace Cincinnati

Hot dang, that's some offense. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Brandon Phillips put on a show on Thursday night, as the veteran 2B bonked 2 homers, stole 2 bases, had a 4 hit evening, and drove in a sugar-upping 7 runs.  The entire Cincinnati Reds offense blasted Pittsburgh Pirates starter A.J. Burnett, the Buccos bullpen, and the outfield seats, but it was Phillips who had a night for the ages.  I suppose it's comforting to note that Reds that aren't enveloped in trade talk and appear to be around for awhile when bonkers on the evening, right? Have a trophy, BP, and...
