Reds television broadcasters Jim Kelch and Chris Welsh definitely did not expect to see what they saw at Miller Park on Friday night when Jonathan Lucroy smacked a two-run walk-off home run off dominant Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. How else can you explain the deathly silence from them immediately following Lucroy's decisive swing?Take a listen and hear for yourself...For those of you keeping score at home, there was about 45 seconds of silence in the Cincinnati booth from the time the pitch was delivered and the time Kelch finally snapped back to reality and spoke into the microphone.The loss snapped the Reds' modest five-game winning streak, too.Via Eye on Baseball

Video: Watch Tony Cingrani mow down Brewers en route to sixth victory

Your browser does not support iframes. The Reds extended their winning streak to five Thursday with a 2-1 triumph over host Milwaukee at a big reason for that has to do with the stellar outing by rookie Tony Cingrani.

Lucroy's first career hit against Chapman a walk-off homer

MILWAUKEE -- Jonathan Lucroy didn't have to be reminded he was 0-for-5 with five strikeouts in his career against Aroldis Chapman.

Photo: Reds have gained major ground in standings over last week

The Reds have gained considerable ground in both the National League Central Division standings and the National League Wild Card standings over the past week. This is because the Reds have gone 6-1 over that span while the Pirates and Cardinals have gone 2-4 and 3-3, respectively. If you don't believe me, check out the way that both standings appeared just one week ago from...

This One Belongs to the Reds, the musical

You know that the Cincinnati Reds are an inspirational team because once someone gets started writing songs about them, the hits just keep on coming. It’s like they’re the muse of the National League. Here’s the latest from The Cincinnati Reds Wooo Guy. Myself, I perhaps don’t find Marty quite as venerable, but checking out the song’s still a good way to spend two and a...

Bailey, Reds look to salvage series in Milwaukee

The first start for Homer Bailey following his July no-hitter came at Miller Park, a rough outing that began a stretch in which the right-hander has rarely looked like a dominant force. Another look at the Brewers probably isn't what will help him out of his funk. Bailey tries to end his career-long struggles against Milwaukee on Sunday and help his Cincinnati Reds avoid a third...

Searching for answers regarding future Reds pitching

by: Izsak Rapp Staff Writer What's going to happen if Bronson Arroyo leaves next season? The obvious answer is Tony Cingrani. The southpaw has been absolutely lights out. Not many teams can drop a still developing player onto their big league club in place of their ace and not miss a beat. I don't know any other minor leaguers who would post a sub-3 ERA with around...

My First Jon Broxton Certified Auto.

I've made it anything but a secret that I'm a big and unabashed fan of former Dodgers' ace reliever Jonathan Broxton. The man was one of the best relievers in franchise history, a beast on the mound, and a nice guy when I met him three years ago. I've wanted a certified auto of him for the longest time, but there was almost nothing to choose from.There was apparently...
