Eugenio Suarez homers twice to lead Reds past Diamondbacks 3-1

Eugenio Suarez homers twice to lead Reds past Diamondbacks 3-1

Photo by Norm Hall/ That’s 47 on the season, so far. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The dingerrific season from Eugenio Suarez just keeps rolling on. On Sunday, the Cincinnati Reds 3B bashed another pair of them, his 46th and 47th blasts of 2019. It buoyed the offense on a day when the Arizona Diamondbacks couldn’t muster much of a counter attack, and led the Reds to a rare road series victory in the process. Congrats, Geno, and keep on bashing, would ya? Honorable Mentions are due to: Trevor Bauer, who allowed a lone earned run in 8 IP; Raisel Iglesias, who...

Reds at Diamondbacks, Game 3 - Preview and Lineups

Photo by Jennifer Stewart/ For the series win... Reds pitching was largely brilliant last night. Anthony DeSclafani allowed only one hit and one run (a triple followed by a sac fly), and Joel Kuhnel pitched a perfect inning of relief. If you’re counting, that means Reds pitching allowed only one hit... and still lost. In fact, according to Bobby Nightengale and Elias, the Reds are the first team in MLB history to allow only one baserunner in a nine inning game and still lose. It’s 2019 distilled into one game. Anyway, the Reds will turn to Trevor Bauer for a chance at the series win....

Photo by Jim Redman/Icon SMI/Icon Sport Media via The Reds look for their third straight win over the D-Backs The Reds prevailed in the the desert last night, in large part because of home runs from Joey Votto and Josh VanMeter. So that’s pretty cool. It’s their second straight win over the Diamondbacks, after taking the final game from them in Cincinnati last weekend. The Reds will roll with Anthony DeSclafani tonight. He just held these Diamondbacks to three hits over six innings just last Sunday. In two starts in Chase Field, Disco has a 1.80 ERA, which is pretty solid. Disco is...

Joey Votto, Josh VanMeter homer to lead Reds past Diamondbacks 4-3

Photo by Jennifer Stewart/ A victory in the series opener. Phoenix, AZ - Joey Votto bonked a 2-run homer, Josh VanMeter did, too, and the Cincinnati Reds were able to outlast the Arizona Diamondbacks 4-3 on Friday evening in the opener of their weekend series. The Reds were up against an old friend in Mike Leake, as their 2009 1st round draft pick landed with Arizona mid-season after a trade from the Seattle Mariners, and it was against Leake - Votto’s longtime former teammate - that Cincinnati’s stalwart 1B did his 2-run mashing. The Reds had Luis Castillo on the mound to start,...

Reds at Diamondbacks, Game 1 - Preview and lineups

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Sports! Thom Brennaman used to call Arizona Diamondbacks games. Did you know that? He never talks about it, though, which is odd. Very, very odd. Anyhoo, the Cincinnati Reds continue their western road trip tonight by opening a weekend series in The Land of the Endless Strip Mall, taking on the Arizona Diamondbacks as the snakes chase one of those elusive NL Wild Card spots. In other words, they’ve still got something to play for, so if the Reds show up and ho-hum their way through this series the way they largely did in the previous one against the woeful...

The bizarre brilliance of Derek Dietrich’s 2019 season

The bizarre brilliance of Derek Dietrich’s 2019 season

David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports Dietrich...remember him? If conjuring up the name ‘Derek Dietrich’ feels as if you’re diving through the annals of history, you aren’t alone. Despite his brilliant start to the 2019 season - one that included a pinch-hit 3-run homer to rescue the Cincinnati Reds on Opening Day - Dietrich has largely faded to the nether-regions of the Reds bench, logging just 6 total PA in the month of September. If you trace back all the way to July 15th, nearly 2 full months ago, Dietrich has a grand total of 2 hits to his name. He’s 2 for 36 in that time, which...

Cincinnati Reds CF Nick Senzel out for season with torn labrum

Cincinnati Reds CF Nick Senzel out for season with torn labrum

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports That’s the worst possible news for the rookie. The roller-coaster rookie season for Cincinnati Reds starlet Nick Senzel is officially over, it appears. After the team’s SNAFU decision to send him to the minors to begin the year for service time manipulation, the subsequent ankle injury that cost him a month, the migraine issues, and the conversion on the fly from IF to OF, it appears the shoulder issue that has plagued him of late is more serious than once thought. According to The Athletic’s C. Trent Rosecrans, Senzel has a torn labrum in his right...

Reds at Mariners, Game 3 - Preview and lineups

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Can the Reds salvage a win out of this series? Hey guess what the Mariners are awful and all set to sweep the Reds. I still like Tyler Mahle, dammit. His stuff is legit and he has struck out four times the batters that he has walked this season. I’m fully aware that these are straws at which I’m grasping so don’t bother. Still, his ERA is approaching 5.00 and he is far too willing to provide opposing hitters the opportunity to hit home runs. And although wins and losses for a pitcher are as relevant as his butt size, his record is 2-11. The Reds are already...

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Selective endpoints on the 2019 Reds: Games 127-144 18 Games At a Time – Capsule 8 The 2019 Reds are as frigid and withholding as a rich WASPy grandma. “Do they have a chance this year?” “No, but we’ll make you believe there is a chance for as long as is possible.” The season was officially put down back in the last capsule, so those of us still paying attention wanted something to pay attention to. “Could they put a decent run together to close the season, something to prime us for things to come next season?” “No. You can’t have that.” “Can...

Red Reposter - Checking in on Taylor Trammell, Jeter Downs

Photo by John E. Moore III/ Thursday links! The whirlwind winter that was 2018-2019 for the Cincinnati Reds produced a greater influx of big league talent to the club than in any recent memory, even dating back to the 2010-2013 run of sustained success. That previous era, of course, was built on a rock-solid core of draftees and merely augmented with outside help, but after a full 5 years in the NL Central cellar, the Red opted to catalyze what they’d put together in the rebuild thus far with some 2019 reinforcements with both brand names and significant upside. Last night, that was on...

Sonny Gray flirts with no-hitter, Reds still lose to Mariners 5-3

Photo by Abbie Parr/ It was fun while it lasted, which is a pretty good slogan for the 2019 Reds as a whole. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Sonny Gray did not throw a no-hitter for the Cincinnati Reds tonight, but for awhile it certainly looked as if it was a real possibility. That’s somewhat a microcosm of what this entire Reds season has been, really, especially when you consider that not only did the no-no not materialize, the swing that busted it up put the Reds behind on the scoreboard, too. This team, man. Anyhoo, Sonny was once again brilliant on the night,...
