Sal Romano fires 8 walkless, hauntless innings, Reds beat Pirates 2-1

Sal Romano fires 8 walkless, hauntless innings, Reds beat Pirates 2-1

The rookie righty was dominant on Saturday. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Sal Romano has a 4.07 ERA in this, his age 23 season. That’s right. It’s a Cincinnati Reds rookie starter not named Luis Castillo, and he’s pitched his way into quite the damn respectable cumulative line so far this year.

That...

Reds vs. Pirates, Game 2: Preview and Predictions

Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates 4:10 PM ET Sal Romano vs. Ivan Nova With just 8 home games remaining in this here season, the Reds will be looking to wrap this season with a bit of oompf.

Anyhoo, Cincinnati will look to out-baseball the baseballing Pirates on Saturday beforemidnight, continuing on the dinger barrage they unleashed on Chad Kuhl & Co. on Friday night. Go Reds. Do the baseball.
