Cueto, Extra base hits doom Pirates in 6-1 loss

Final: Reds 6, Pirates 1 WP: Johnny Cueto (4-0, 1.31 ERA) LP: Kevin Correia (1-2, 3.38 ERA) Johnny Cueto pitched a complete game and the Reds mashed eight extra base hits, including three home runs. Kevin Correia was able to give the Pirates seven innings, which was well needed after the bullpen had pitched over nine innings the past two days. But he did give up five runs along the...

Dingers and defense

The Pirates evened the series with the Reds thanks to some long balls and nifty work on defense – two things we haven’t seen a whole lot of from the Bucs so far this year. Neil Walker hit his first home run of the year on a Mike Leake meatball in the third inning. With Jose Tabata on second after a double with two outs, Neil pounded one well into the air that easily cleared...

Pitcher Profile: Lance Lynn for 2012 Fantasy Baseball

Hola Razzballers!  This is my first article for Razzball Baseball and if you’re a Razzball loyalist (and really, why aren’t you?) you may recognize me from the fantasy football side of things last year.  I look forward to summoning you guys (and some gals) some Phillip Humber-esque perfect fantasy advice.  Just not against the Red Sox or Indians. I must admit early on, I...

Sunday snooze-fest

The Reds rolled past the Pirates in a total snooze-fest today to take the series against the Bucs. Charlie Morton ‘s dominance over the Reds unfortunately came to an abrupt end this afternoon. Cincinnati picked up an unearned run in the first following a pickoff throw that got away, but they hit the ball very well off Charlie in the next few innings. Todd Frazier and Drew Stubbs–both...

Game 28: Reds 5 Pirates 0

I don't know how to accurately describe the frustration that this game caused me watching it. The Pirates were very patient with Mat Latos in the first inning and drew three walks and were a nice Todd Frazier snag of a Casey McGehee line drive away from making breaking the inning open. Instead, they got nothing out of the first and never really threatened to score again all afternoon...

Cueto throws complete game, Reds rout Pirates

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Johnny Cueto remained unbeaten, giving up seven hits in his first complete game of the season as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 on Friday night. The right-hander struck out three without a walk to improve to 4-0 and lower his ERA to 1.32. Zack Cozart and Drew Stubbs homered on consecutive pitches in the seventh inning off Pittsburgh starter...

Gotta get it together (watch it)

The Pirates are 11-14 entering a nine-game homestand against the Reds, Nationals, and Astros. They have been occasionally brilliant on the mound this year and recently compentent at the plate. If you were asking me to be honest, I'd tell you that I think that they haven't played as well as their record indicates this year and that on some nights I feel like I'm watching...

Waiting for Pedro

I don't know if there's ever been a Pittsburgh Pirate more hyped than Pedro Alvarez and I don't know if there ever will be. He came to the Pirates under a perfect storm of conditions. He was Neal Huntington's first draft pick, he represented the first time that the Pirates had ever drafted the best player regardless of the price tag, the first time they decided to...

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Cincinnati Reds – Game 28

It seemed like the Pirates had more than six hits last night didn’t it?  Must have been the six walks. The biggest thing to take away from last night was yet another encouraging outing from James McDonald. If the Buccos want this series they will have to win two games in a row.  Something they [...]
