The Cincinnati Reds had their second afternoon game in a row today, and like yesterday, it was a one-run game. Unfortunately, this time it went against the Reds, who fell to 3-4. Mat Latos made his second start for Cincinnati and again had trouble in the 5th. This time, he made it through 5 innings and gave up only 2 runs. However, his pitch count was almost at 100, so he was done early. He had better command, but threw a lot of pitches to a lot of batters. Despite getting many batters to 2 … [visit site to read more]

What folks are saying about Phillips extension

"I don't think it's a terrible deal for the Reds. Phillips is a good player who's durable and a fan favorite with a big personality. It does create an impetus to win now, before the Votto and Phillips deals potentially become a financial albatross. Hey, if they win now or next year, they can worry about 2016 in 2016." -David Schoenfield of ESPN.com's...

Simon's walk-off wild pitch costs Reds the opener

Ludwick's two-RBI single tied it in the ninth. The offense once again stalled for the Cincinnati Reds (3-4), as they scored no runs until the ninth inning, though those runs did extend the game. Gio Gonzalez outpitched Mat Latos, limiting Cincinnati to just two hits while striking out seven Reds in seven innings. Latos made his second start for the Reds, but came up...

MINOR details 4/13/12: Close finishes and a rainout

Could J.J. Hoover soon find himself in the Reds 'pen? Louisville 4, Columbus 2 -Bats starter Chad Reineke went 4.2 innings allowing seven hits and two runs while fanning two. Travis Webb earned the win after tossing 1.1 scoreless frames of relief. Closer J.J. Hoover slammed the door shut in the ninth to pick up his second save of the season. We could very well see Hoover...

Waiver Wire: Zack Cozart, SS, Cincinnati Reds

It’s not a household name, you may have not even heard of him yet, but Reds’ shortstop Zack Cozart is, through five games, having a much better fantasy season than teammate Joey Votto. Obviously that will not hold up, but Cozart has been impressive so far in the 2012 season. He is hitting .471 and has only one homer and two runs batted in but also has two doubles and two triples...

MINOR details 4/11/2012: Minor league teams swept Wednesday night

Arroyo's stellar start wasted as bats fall silent

Arroyo pitched well, but received a no-decision for his efforts Washington, D.C. -- A classic pitcher's duel unfolded on Friday night as Bronson Arroyo and Jordan Zimmerman mowed down opposing hitters with relative ease. However, neither pitcher was rewarded for their stellar outings as both received no decisions. It took 13 innings of offensive-challegened baseball...

Reds Rapid Fire: Phillips Cashes In Too

Here are some quick notes on the Cincinnati Reds, who are off to a 3-4 start to the season. * It was great to see the team sign Brandon Phillips to a 5-year, $60 million extension (6-years, $72.5 million counting the $12.5 million Phillips is making this year) right on the heels of the huge Joey Votto deal. I honestly thought the team would let Phillips walk after this season, but...

Votto's 4 hits help Reds rally past Cards

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Joey Votto tied a career best with four hits and scored the go-ahead run on pinch-hitter Chris Heisey's ninth-inning single, capping a comeback from a three-run deficit and leading the Cincinnati Reds over the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 Wednesday. Down 3-0 in the third against Jaime Garcia, the Reds tied the score in the fifth. Votto doubled off Marc Rzepczynski...

The Reds Strike Again: The Phillips Extension

It has been a good week to be a second baseman. On the heels of Ian Kinsler‘s big extension with the Rangers, Brandon Phillips received a roughly similar six-year, $72.5 million deal from the Cincinnati Reds. Unlike Kinsler’s five-year contract, which begins after this season, Phillips’ new contract begins this year. Does this make sense for the team given the Reds current...

Reds avoid Cardinals sweep

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I didn’t get to see the first business day special of the year, because I was doing business. The Reds avoided getting swept by their division rivals after getting in a 3-0 hole thanks to a Jon Jay home run off Johnny Cueto. Cueto didn’t have his best stuff it seemed, but he kept the Reds in the game over the course of five toughly contested innings...

Low-Level Highlights: Billy Hamilton

"Speed kills." Throughout the 1980's, that was the widespread belief amongst baseball teams, as the game's greatest leadoff hitter, Rickey Henderson, was piecing together his Hall of Fame Career by being the game's greatest threat on the basepaths. It wasn't so much that he was fast. It was that he was able to take walks and singles and turn them into...
