While Pittsburgh and St. Louis have struggled of late, Cincinnati (69-52) has won five straight and eight of nine to move within one-half game of the second-place Cardinals and 2 12 behind the division-leading Pirates. "The Pirates lost (6-5 in 12 innings at St. Louis on Thursday), so we picked up another game on them, it was really big," winning pitcher Tony Cingrani said after Thursday's 2-1 victory at Milwaukee. Cingrani pitched 6 1-3 strong innings and Joey Votto hit a go-ahead solo homer in the sixth to help the Reds prevail. Cincinnati won six in a row May 10-16.

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.

Ryan Hanigan Takes A Foul Ball To The Cubes, Men Everywhere Cringe

If you ever questioned why baseball players wear cups, yesterday is a good indicator. LaTroy Hawkins wasn’t the first guy to take a foul ball right to the pocket rocket last night. Nope, that distinction belongs to Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan versus the Chicago Cubs.

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.
