Last Game The Reds dropped the series opener to the Pirates in spectacular form, 8-4. Homer Bailey, who previously owned the Pirates, got totally lit up. Next Game Tonight Johnny Cueto (5-3, 2.54 ERA) goes out for revenge. He’s facing off against Brad Lincoln (3-0, 1.04 ERA). Cueto’s been good and Cueto’s been bad the last few starts, but we really need good Cueto tonight after the small number of innings Bailey ate through yesterday. Mirror, … [visit site to read more]

Game 55: Pirates 4, Reds 5

After the Reds lost the first game of the series, I was a little nervous that the Pirates might really sweep the series and come into a tie for first. But now the Buccos will have to hope for another series to do that, since the Reds won last night, 4-5. Johnny Cueto started for the Reds, and it was Good Cueto this time. He went 7.2 innings with 3 runs (earned) on 6 hits and a walk...

Game 54: Pirates 8, Reds 4

The Reds lost the first game of the three-game series to the Pirates last night, 8-4. Homer Bailey started for the Reds, so it looked like it was going to be all him. After all, before last night, Bailey had never suffered a loss at the hands of the Pirates in 9 starts and he was rocking a 1.79 ERA. That’s why they play the game, though. Last night he worked just 3.0 innings,...

Daily Brief: Consistency in Pitching

Last Game The Reds pulled the series even yesterday by beating the Pirates 4-5. Johnny Cueto got the win and Brandon Phillips redeemed himself a little with a 2-for-4 night that included a home run. He’d gone 0-fer and left 7 on base the day before. Next Game Tonight is the rubber match, with Mike Leake (2-5, 4.95 ERA) defending against Kevin Correia (2-5, 4.19 ERA). Don’t let...

Game 54: Pirates 8 Reds 4

Homer Bailey really isn't a very good pitcher, but he's always been the sort of pitcher that gives the Pirates fits. He throws hard and when he mixes that with his slider, the Pirates generally look helpless against him, even if that doesn't happen against most other teams. Coming into tonight, he was 6-0 against the Pirates with a 1.79 ERA and a 2.65 K/BB ratio. The...

Stay hot

The Pirates' figured out one of their long-time Cincinnati nemeses last night when they tagged Homer Bailey for a bunch of runs, tonight they try to get their second win against Johnny Cueto in eight days. They drew some walks off of Cueto last Wednesday, taking four in his seven innings, and eeked out a 2-1 win behind AJ Burnett. Instead of Burnett tonight, the Bucs send Brad...

Fantasy Baseball: Streamers Of The Day

Take a look at these guys if you need a quick spot start. Homer Bailey – The Reds kept waiting on Bailey to get it together and it looks like he finally has. Between all the hype – and looking like Christian Bale – Bailey had a tough time adjusting to life in the majors, but after a typical up and down start he’s settled in and only given up 6 runs combined in his last 3...

Bailey struggles in Reds' loss to Pirates

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Clint Barmes had three hits and drove in three runs, and the Pittsburgh Pirates extended their home-run tear by hitting three more for an 8-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. Neil Walker hit a two-run homer, and Casey McGehee and Alex Presley had solo shots, giving the Pirates seven homers in their last two games. A.J. Burnett (5-2) won his...

Reds sink Pirates, 5-4

Word is this guy's alright. The Redlegs were able to wash away the bad taste left in their mouths after a loss in game one of the series against the Buccos by holding on for a 5-4 victory. With the win, the good guys move to 30-24 on the season while dropping their divisional rival to 28-26. By using the trusty blueprint of strong starting pitching, timely...

Pirates rally, but come up short in 5-4 loss

Final: Reds 5, Pirates 4 WP: Johnny Cueto (6-3, 2.63 ERA) LP: Brad Lincoln (3-1, 2.40 ERA) SV: Aroldis Chapman (6, 0.00 ERA) Brandon Phillips homered in the 2nd and the Reds added four more in the 4th inning thanks in large part to a 3-run double by Ryan Ludwick to put the Pirates in a 5-0 hole. In the 8th inning, the Pirates finally broke through, but it was too little, too late...

Pirates-Reds Preview

As Pittsburgh's A.J. Burnett continued his recent mastery last week against the Cincinnati Reds, Homer Bailey managed to baffle the Pirates yet again. With Burnett and Bailey each riding three-start winning streaks, runs could be at a premium Tuesday night as Pittsburgh tries for a fifth consecutive road victory over NL Central-leading Cincinnati in the opener of a three-game...

Homer happy

The Pirates finally figured out how to hit Homer Bailey and continued to play great baseball on Tuesday night. Your Bucs have now won 8 out of their last 10 – and by that measure, they’re the hottest team in the NL. Just like both their wins in Milwaukee, the Pirates played poorly in the first inning. Andrew McCutchen was thrown out trying to move up on a ball in the dirt, and...
