In a game that would become a pitching duel for 9 innings the Reds second baseman handed the Houston Astros the win. The Reds were one out away from sending the game into extra innings and the Astros hit a ground ball that any little league player could have handled. The hit was as normal as they come. It didn’t take any bad hops and it wasn’t as if it was a rocket blast either. Wilson Valdez just didn’t get his glove down to the ground and watched as the ball would roll right in-between his legs into right center field to allow the Houston Astros to score a run in their last at bat to win the game 2-1 over the Reds.
This one has to go down as one of Wilson Valdez’s most embarrassing moments, what I would have given to be in the locker room after this game to hear what the Reds manager Dusty Baker had to say to Wilson Valdez. The Reds pitching did an outstanding job keeping the game tied and it all came down to Wilson Valdez’s blunder giving the Astros a gift. Oh well, what can you...

If you're a Cincinnati Reds fan you know the future of the franchise is very bright. The next several years should bring us all plenty of great Redlegs memories and victories. However, I think it'd be fun to take a look back at some of the past years to remember some of the best players from the 2000-2009 Reds teams.

Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who has not played for the Reds since July 15, might return to the Cincinnati lineup on Monday, although the decision ultimately will be Votto's. Votto has been out more than six weeks since he had surgery to repair a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. He hit a home run in a rehabilitation game with Triple-A Louisville on Saturday...
Based on the way Bronson Arroyo has pitched of late, he should give the Cincinnati Reds a good chance to bounce back from a frustrating defeat.
The veteran right-hander can win five consecutive starts for the first time in four years Sunday in the NL Central-leading Reds' decisive series finale against the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park.
Arroyo (11-7, 3.84 ERA) is 4-0 with...

HOUSTON (AP) -- Cincinnati second baseman Wilson Valdez's error on a routine grounder by Jose Altuve with two outs in the ninth inning lifted the Houston Astros to a 2-1 win over the Reds on Saturday night.

The arrival of Joey Votto and Jay Bruce in Cincinnati ended a drought from their farm system. Bruce was the twelfth overall selection in the 05 draft and now in his fifth MLB year. Though there have been periods of inconsistency, he's established himself as a solid run producer in the middle of the Reds lineup and leads them in both HR and RBI at the age of 25.
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Johnny Cueto walked around the infield, trying to scrape the mud off his cleats. The rain was coming down hard. He didn't feel very comfortable on the mound.
His next pitch in a downpour ended his perfect afternoon record.

The Cincinnati Reds have never had a Cy Young Award winner, but Johnny Cueto is making a strong case to become the franchise's first.

John Mayberry Jr. added a solo homer off Cueto (17-7), who failed in his attempt to become the majors' first 18-game winner. Cueto also lost a day game for the first time this season...

Johnny Cueto's bid to become the majors' first 18-game winner fell short on Monday as the Reds (82-54) were edged out by the Philadelphia Phillies (65-70), 4-2. Jimmy Rollins smacked a 3-run homer in the fifth that proved to be all the visitors needed on a soggy Labor Day in Cincinnati. Despite the loss, Dusty Baker's club still enjoys the largest division...
