Next Game Tonight, the Reds host the Diamondbacks at 7:10 p.m. at Great American Ball Park. Bronson Arroyo (4-5, 3.73 ERA) will defend against All-Star … [visit site to read more]

Pitcher Redmond to take Votto’s roster spot

Of all the people you might have thought would take Joey Votto’s roster spot while he’s on the DL with that arthroscopic knee surgery, I bet you didn’t consider a right-handed pitcher. But John Fay says that Todd Redmond (the guy the Reds just traded Paul Janish for) is coming up today to give the Reds some flexibility if Johnny Cueto’s start tonight … [visit site to read more]

Reds can overcome temporary loss of Votto

CINCINNATI There are no placards hanging in the Cincinnati Reds clubhouse that say, "Keep a stiff upper lip," but there are, indeed, more stiff upper lips these days than on the Queen's Guard at Buckingham Palace. It is all due to the loss of All-Star first baseman Joey Votto for three weeks after he underwent arthroscopic knee surgery Tuesday. The team, of course...

Extra! Extra! Reds win on Ludwick Homer

Ryan Ludwick hits a walk off against former team! The Cincinnati Reds have remained undefeated since the All-Star break with a 3-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. While it has only been 2 games it looks promising for the Redlegs. They have regained first place in the division while also beating a key and heated rival in  St. Louis. The anticipation was strong heading...

Game 88: Reds 4, Cardinals 2

The brooms were out as the Reds completed the sweep of the Cardinals last night on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball (Presented by Taco Bell). Johnny Cueto would have taken the mound, but was suffering from a blister. How he got a blister over the All-Star Break, I don’t know, but it wasn’t too big a deal since everyone else was rested. Homer Bailey took his place and totally rocked...

Rolen a true pro for surging Reds

This isnt like 2006, when former Cardinals manager Tony La Russa benched third baseman Scott Rolen twice during the playoffs. Back then, Rolen was not happy. He had given himself to the team physically during the regular season, playing 142 games with an ailing shoulder. He then proved his point to La Russa after starting the postseason 1 for 11, batting .351 with a .955 OPS over...

Daily Brief: Votto out 3-4 weeks

Last Game The Diamondbacks weren’t really bad enough to be swept by the Cubs last weekend, so maybe it’s no surprise that they busted out against the Reds last night. They touched Bronson Arroyo for 4 runs in the first inning, and that’s all they needed. With the Diamondbacks’ All-Star Wade Miley on the mound, the Reds’ All-Star Joey Votto out of the line-up, and an ejection...

Tuesday news and notes

I guess the biggest news of course would be that Joey Votto is heading to the DL and that could cause a chain reaction throughout the system. Right now, it appears that pitcher Todd Redmond, who we just acquired last week in a trade for Paul Janish, will get the call. I expect that move to last only a day or two due to the Cueto blister (if it shows up, they will pull him early)...

Rolen's clutch hit sends Reds to win over Cards

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Scott Rolen hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth inning Sunday night, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory and three-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds' sixth straight win matched their best surge of the season, moved them a season-high 12 games over .500, and jumped them a game ahead of Pittsburgh for the NL Central lead. St...

Notable quotes from the weekend

The Reds put the finishing touches on a three-game sweep over the Cardinals on Sunday night. Here's some of the more notable quotes from the weekend series. Friday (5-3 Win) + "It was like Opening Day. It probably should be like that the rest of the year. People are excited. I hope they stay that way until the end." -Dusty Baker on the soldout crowd + "...

Bullpen fails Cards over weekend

The Cardinals' three-game sweep by the Reds at Cincinnati had some familiar themes. A former Cardinal beat them. After left fielder Ryan Ludwick hit a 10th-inning homer to win Saturday's game for the Reds, 3-2, third baseman Scott Rolen delivered a two-run, two-out bases-loaded single to win Sunday night for Cincinnati, 4-2. The bullpen failed. In each of the three losses...

Diamondbacks snap Reds' win streak

One bit of news took the Cincinnati Reds from their season high point to a new low - they have to try to hold onto first place without Joey Votto.

Redlegs Sweep Cardinals with 4-2 Win

The Reds (50-38) completed their first series of the second half of the season by sweeping the division rival Cardinals (46-43) with a 4-2 win on ESPN's Sunday Night Baseball. The Pirates suffered a 4 to 1 loss against the Brewers in Milwaukee today, allowing the Reds to grasp sole possession of first place in the National League Central. Homer Bailey got only his...

Montero, D-backs bounce back to beat Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Three games at Wrigley Field, a total of three runs scored. That was enough to convince Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson that it was time to shake things up. Everything he did worked out. The D-backs emerged from their slump by scoring early and piling up 13 hits against the first-place Reds, with Miguel Montero droving in four runs with a bases-loaded double...
