The Reds Made It Interesting But Lose 5-4

The Reds Made It Interesting But Lose 5-4

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports If only they played better. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jesse Winker: 2 for 3, HR, RBI, BB, SB Jesse Winker has been swinging a hot bat so he gets the award for tonight. Right now he’s pretty much leading the offense with seems slumpish. Hopefully, he can keep swinging a hot bat for a while but right now you’re seeing a quality at bat almost every single time he’s up. Honorable Mention: Freddy Galvis went 2 for 4 with a 2-run dinger and a bunt. He also had a really bad error in the first inning. Josh Van Meter also...

Reds vs. Royals, Game 2 - Preview and Lineups

Photo by Joe Robbins/ Votto bangs again. Let’s keep this going with a two-game series sweep, shall we? The Reds have a chance to get back to .500 tonight, which seems very important if they still have aspirations of playoff baseball in 2020. They’ll have Wade Miley on the mound making only his second start, after a groin issue mercilessly took him out of his first start against Chicago. No Alex Gordon or Brett Phillips tonight for the Royals. Name a guy that played for the Royals and Reds. I'll start - Todd Benzinger.— Royals Review (@royalsreview) August 11, 2020 I’ll add...

Joey Votto wins it for Reds in 6-5 walk-off victory over Royals

Joey Votto wins it for Reds in 6-5 walk-off victory over Royals

Photo by Joe Robbins/ An error-filled night eventually turns the Reds way. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game It’s been a blistering run for Jesse Winker of late, and to the smiles of so many in Cincinnati Reds land, a lot of it has even come against left-handed pitching. Such was the case again on Tuesday, as Winker got the start in LF with lefty Kris Bubic on the mound for the Kansas City Royals, and Winker’s terrific run didn’t skip a beat. Winker homered, Winker singled, Winker walked and scored, and upped his overall season line to a steamy .310/.442/.500 for...

Reds vs. Royals, Game 1 - Preview and Lineups

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Fresh and rested after an off day. The Reds are back in action tonight in Cincinnati after a rare off day Monday. Tonight, the Reds will face the Royals and Kris Bubic, who will be making the third Major League start in his young career. He’s allowed two earned runs in each of his first two starts, the first in four innings vs. the White Sox, and his second in six innings vs. the Cubs. He’s struck out nine and walked only three in 10 innings of work. Bubic was a first round pick by the Royals in 2018 out of Stanford. In 2019, between A ball Lexington and A+...

Cincinnati Reds place Pedro Strop on 10-day IL, recall Josh VanMeter

Photo by Dylan Buell/ A roster swap ahead of the series opener against Kansas City. The hits just keep on coming for the Cincinnati Reds bullpen. The beleaguered unit has already been pounded early in this 2020 season, and now the most recent free agent addition, Pedro Strop, will officially be sidelined until the middle of next week, too. The Reds announced the move earlier Tuesday, one that was expected given the initial fears over the severity of Strop’s groin injury over the weekend. The #Reds today recalled IF Josh VanMeter and placed on the 10-day injured list RHP Pedro Strop,...

Can Tyler Mahle rescue the Cincinnati Reds bullpen?

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Bumped from the rotation with a bullpen in tatters, is Mahle the guy for the new job? You are a baseball team. Congrats on the billions of dollars. You have a ripe starting rotation, one of the absolute best units in your franchise’s lengthy history and the envy of all in the league. In fact you’ve got so much of a good thing, you don’t have enough spots on the roster for all qualified parties. To add to your slate of decisions, there are no minor leagues in which to stash your excess anymore. There is no stage on which you can guarantee near replica scenarios...

Cincinnati Reds bullpen shelled again in 9-3 loss to Milwaukee Brewers

Cincinnati Reds bullpen shelled again in 9-3 loss to Milwaukee Brewers

Photo by Dylan Buell/ A brutal end to an otherwise promising series in Milwaukee. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game Jesse Winker remained blisteringly hot, and even tagged the Milwaukee Brewers for his first dinger of the season. He had a trio of hits, drove in both Reds runs, and has upped his season OBP to .408. That was wonderful. Unfortunately, the Cincinnati Reds bullpen is a pile of hot garbage right now. Key Plays Walks to each of Castellanos and Suarez from Milwaukee starter Brandon Woodruff put a big ol’ pot of stew on the Reds stove in the Top of the 1st,...

Cincinnati Reds place 2B Mike Moustakas on 10-day IL

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ A big blow to the team’s offense. First, it was the COVID-19 scare that kept new Cincinnati Reds 2B Mike Moustakas sidelined. Then, it was a plunking on the forearm that caused a brief moment of concern. Since Tuesday, though, it’s been a mysterious thigh bruise that has plagued Moose, and kept him completely sidelined. While the original hope was that he’d be back and ready as early as this Tuesday, the Reds announced Sunday that he’d be out longer than that, officially placing him on the 10-day IL. The Enquirer’s Bobby Nightengale relayed the...

Reds at Brewers, Game 3 - Preview and Lineups

Photo by Jamie Sabau/ Just win, baby. There were the struggles against the Detroit Tigers, and the crushing 13-0 dismantling at the hands of Cleveland. There’s the absence, again, of Mike Moustakas, who’s fighting his third lineup-tussle of the year already. Nick Senzel is in a similar tale of toil, too, with a groin injury now shelving him temporarily, while Pedro Strop appears set for the sidelines for quite a bit longer. With all that frustration, the Cincinnati Reds are a Sunday victory over the Milwaukee Brewers away from claiming a road series sweep and a return to .500. And,...

Anthony DeSclafani, Eugenio Suarez lead Reds past Brewers 4-1

Anthony DeSclafani, Eugenio Suarez lead Reds past Brewers 4-1

Photo by Dylan Buell/ That’s a series victory, I believe. The Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game The Cincinnati Reds aren’t going anywhere this year unless Eugenio Suarez starts to maul balls again. The latest returns from the incumbent 3B have been better than the initial ones, and tonight he tattooed a vital big-fly that hearkened back to his dingering days of yore. Suarez walked once, which was cool and all, but it was the 3-run dinger he blasted early in this quest to vanquish the Milwaukee Brewers that truly stood out. It was a vintage Suarez romp, too - a pulled...
