Found June 07, 2012 on Red Hot Mama:
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. He got into a bit of a bind at the end and let two guys on. Logan Ondrusek didn’t make matters better when he … [visit site to read more]

Cueto’s been good and Cueto’s been bad the last few starts, but we really need good Cueto tonight...

Hoover and Costanzo … [visit site to read more]

Reds top prospects: Tony Cingrani promoted to Pensacola

Cingrani is no longer donning the orange and black of the Blaze. Tony Cingrani was promoted to Pensacola, following his extraordinary start in Bakersfield. He picked up right where he left off, tossing 6.2 innings of two-run baseball in his double-A debut. Billy Hamilton is still running wild with 63 stolen bases, while playing in 55 of Bakersfield's 58 games. That puts him...

Negron played every outfield position in the minors. He batted .212 with five homers and 15 stolen bases at Louisville. Infielder Mike Costanzo was optioned to Triple-A Louisville. Costanzo appeared...

On the eve of the Draft on Monday, he released his selections for all six NL Central franchises. Here...

The elephant in the room

The Reds sent Mat Latos, Chris Heisey, and Zack Cozart to the Cincinnati Zoo yesterday as part of the “Zoo Day” festivities. This apparently involved hosing down an elephant. I only saw this photo on Facebook. Apparently other news … [visit site to read more]

Game 56: Pirates 5, Reds 4

Last night the Reds lost a game to the Pirates 5-4 in extra innings. Mike Leake took the mound for the Reds and gave an adequate performance.

Typical Reds relievers this year. The surprise was when Aroldis Chapman...

Battlin’ Bucs best Reds

Every win is enjoyable, but this one really meant a lot for the Pirates. It was a back-and-forth contest on the road with the division leader, and they ended up pulling it off in improbable fashion to win the series (their fourth in a row) and complete a winning road trip.  Awesome. For some reason, all the Pirates wins on this road trip started off pretty poorly. This game was...
