Heavy rains delayed the start of Tuesday night's Phillies-Reds game for one hour and 20 minutes and they returned to force the game to be suspended in the middle of the ninth inning of a scoreless game. The Phillies and Reds will resume their suspended game on Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. The game will pick up right at the bottom of the ninth inning and the series finale will go on as planned at 7:10 p.m. unless the first game runs long.
This is the first suspended game for the Phillies since Game Five of the 2008 World Series. Things turned out pretty well in that one of course, but this 2013 team is in desperate need of a spark on offense. On Tuesday night the Phillies recorded just two singles off of Reds starter Homer Bailey, who struck out 10 Phillies batters. Fortunately for the Phillies the starting pitching of Kyle Kendrick and an inning from Antonio Bastardo was effective in holding the Reds to just two hits.
Reliever Phillipe Aumont was to pitch in the ninth inning...
BEST OF MAXIM
Ben Revere looked like a man on a mission last night. With a pair of highlight reel catches, Revere pulled out all the stops behind Cliff Lee. Before the game, he dedicated his play to the victims of the Boston tragedy, including a taping a simple message on his glove: Pray for Boston.

Our beloved Redlegs put an end to their dreaded 5-game losing skid Monday night with a 4-2 win over the Phillies. But there was a point in the game when it appeared as if the Reds might be heading toward a sixth consecutive loss.
That moment came in the top of the eighth inning when Bronson Arroyo ran into trouble. Up until that point, Arroyo had hurled a gem, essentially blanking...
This is easily the defensive play of the year so far in this young MLB season. Watch as Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Ben Revere gets a great jump on a well-hit ball and makes a spectacular catch in the outfield. Thanks to Blacksportsonline for the footage.
The Reds snapped their 5-game losing streak last night against the Phillies when they won 2-4. Photo from Better Off Red. Thanks, guys.Bronson Arroyo put in a good long outing, going 8.0 innings and allowing 2 runs (earned) on 5 hits. Cliff Lee was nearly as efficient and put up 6 quick, scoreless innings before a Joey Votto single, Brandon Phillips double, and 10-pitch...

It's no secret that Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Ben Revere is really, really fast.
For those who may not buy into Revere's elite quickness yet, please watch the incredible catch he made during the second inning of Monday's game at Cincinnati.

PitchersTags: Charlie ManuelPhilliesPhillippe AumontCharlie Manuel has made yet another dumb managerial decision.
Last night in a 0-0 game at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, Manuel put Phillippe Aumont in to pitch the bottom of the 9th inning, rather than multi-million dollar set-up man Mike Adams.
We never got to see what Aumont...
Bailey was on pace for a complete game shut-out if the other guy hadn’t been just as good. Oh, the rain was a problem, too.Last game
Technically, last night’s game still isn’t over, so does it qualify as the “last game”?
Homer Bailey was just spectacular last night before the rain stopped the 0-0 game after the top of the ninth inning. He struck out 10 in his 8.0 innings...
On any given day this play would be the featured play on highlight reels everywhere. However, with the message that outfielder Ben Revere wrote on his glove to the people of Boston it becomes more than just your average highlight.

Today the Cincinnati Reds had to place starting pitcher Johnny Cueto on the 15-day disabled list. The injury is being identified as a lat strain and has been known to sideline pitchers for more than a month. He injured himself against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday.

The Phillies have been losing games because they can't get a hit. The latest one came without so much as a swing.
After waiting all night to finish off the game, Philadelphia never even got a chance to bat. Jay Bruce singled with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 1-0 victory on Wednesday.

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Jay Bruce singled with the bases loaded in the bottom of ninth inning on Wednesday, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a strange 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Phillies in a game suspended overnight because of rain.
The game resumed in the bottom of the ninth with a few hundred people in the stands. Bruce's single off Phillippe Aumont (1-2) came only 9 minutes...
Well that was fast and also quite predictable. Yet, another game is on tap. John Lannan looks to build on his rather impressive start to the season against Mike Leake, who comes into tonight's contest with a 6.75 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in two starts. Just the right guy to...
Tweet After spending the first three seasons of his major league career with the Minnesota Twins Ben Revere was traded to the Philadelphia Phillies this past winter to patrol center field. Against the Cincinnati Reds on Monday Revere did just that about as well as you possibly can, making this unbelievable play in the [...]
