Eugenio Suarez homers twice to rescue Reds in 6-5 win over Brewers

Eugenio Suarez homers twice to rescue Reds in 6-5 win over Brewers

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports The Cincinnati 3B has put the offense entirely on his shoulders. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Eugenio Suarez is a meatball-mauling masher. The Cincinnati Reds 3B bashed a pair of crucial 2-run dingers against the Milwaukee Brewers in the series opener between these two clubs on Monday, both times putting the theoretical nail in the coffin of this game in the process. The Reds bullpen made the first dinger moot, but Suarez’s second blast was the kind of emphatic thump that won’t soon be forgotten, especially if somehow, some way this...

Cincinnati Reds place Tyler Mahle on 10-day IL, recall Sal Romano

Cincinnati Reds place Tyler Mahle on 10-day IL, recall Sal Romano

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ The Cincinnati starter hits the IL with a hamstring injury. It certainly looked like Tyler Mahle tweaked something while delivering his final pitch of the game on Friday against the St. Louis Cardinals, but since that pitch resulted in an out - and was his final batter faced that day - we didn’t really get to see how impactful it really was. It was revealed later in the weekend that he’d tweaked his hamstring, though the hope was he wouldn’t need an IL trip. That changed today, unfortunately, as the Cincinnati Reds announced Mahle was headed to the 10-day IL....

Reds at Brewers, Game 1 - Preview and Lineups

Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports Is it even a must-win at this juncture? Fresh off a dismal home series against division rivals St. Louis, the Cincinnati Reds head to Milwaukee to try to beer-batter the Brewers in a three game set beginning Monday night. It might, at this juncture, be too far gone for the 2019 Reds to compete, but if they’re every going to make a miraculous climb up the NL Central standings, that climb must begin tonight. They sit seven games back of the Beers in the standings - a full nine games behind the Chicago Cubs, who lead the division - and with the July 31st trade...

At least the 2019 Cincinnati Reds weren’t predictably bad

At least the 2019 Cincinnati Reds weren’t predictably bad

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports The 2019 season has fizzled at the worst of times. At least this one had a climax. Contending teams can’t afford to lose 3 of 4 at home in big spots. Teams just trying to remain relevant sure as hell can’t. That, though, is exactly what we saw from the Cincinnati Reds this weekend, as they managed just a lone win in their vital series against the St. Louis Cardinals - a Cardinals club that was without Yadier Molina, Marcell Ozuna, and Matt Carpenter. At 44-53, the Reds sit 9 games under .500 and a full 9 games back of the Chicago Cubs with the...

Reds offense spoils brilliant Anthony DeSclafani start in 3-1 loss to Cardinals

Reds offense spoils brilliant Anthony DeSclafani start in 3-1 loss to Cardinals

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports That’s a bad, bad way to drop a crucial home series. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Anthony DeSclafani entered his start against the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday on a rather nice roll. The Cincinnati Reds righty had pitched to a tidy 3.32 ERA over his previous 7 starts, with an impressive 39/9 K/BB in his 38 IP in that span. That good work continued today, even though his offense - and the defense behind him - let him down in a big, big way. Disco finished 6 IP on 101 pitches, allowing just 4 hits - all singles - and a lone earned run...

Cardinals at Reds, Game 4 - Preview and Lineups

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Hey! They won one! Luis Castillo held up his end of the bargain last night while Josh VanMeter, the pitcher eater, slugged his first big league home run which turned out to be the difference! With a win today, the Reds will salvage a series split (which seems impossible, really, but here we are). The Cubs won last night, so the Reds didn’t pick up any games by winning yesterday, they’re still nine games back on July 21st. Maybe yesterday was the start of something special? Today, the Reds will face Jack Flaherty, who has a season ERA of 4.41. That said,...

Josh VanMeter homers, backs Luis Castillo to lead Reds past Cardinals 3-2

Photo by Kirk Irwin/ A win! A win!! The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Josh Vanmeter has quietly been a steady contributor for the Cincinnati Reds in his bit-part role to date. He has absolutely mauled AAA pitching while with the Louisville Bats, but in his big league time to date he’s struggled at one, and only one thing - getting regular playing time. Vanmeter got the start tonight in LF, and provided the single biggest swing for the Reds while facing the St. Louis Cardinals with a banged-up roster. Josh clubbed his first career big league dinger as part of a 2 hit...

Cardinals at Reds, Game 3 - Preview and Lineups

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ ugh The post-All Star break is not going as designed. After taking a 7-0 lead in last nights game, the Reds gagged the whole thing away by allowing 10 runs in the 6th inning, and then somehow ended up only losing by one run, because of course they did. That one run loss was their 20th of the season, of course, though it was a different kind of one run loss than we’re used to. Still, the Reds have lost six of the eight games they’ve played since the break. That puts them a solid nine games back in the division and, well, this whole thing is starting to feel very...

While Nick Senzel and Derek Dietrich are banged up alongside the IL’d trio of Tucker Barnhart, Curt Casali, and Kyle Farmer, it was Lavarnway who stepped up large in his Reds debut, smacking a double and a pair of dingers while driving in 6 runs on the evening, something no player in Reds history has ever done in their debut since at least...

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports For the love of everything, please play good baseball. The Cincinnati Reds did not win a baseball game yesterday. They didn’t the day before, either, nor the day before that. In fact, at the absolute crux of their season, they’re mired in a 2-7 stretch, and have done that while watching injury after injury sap the momentum out of this season. If ever there was going to be a time to get hot and save the season, it absolutely has to begin tonight against the St. Louis Cardinals. At 43-51, the Reds have the worst record in the National League this side of the...
