BEST OF MAXIM
After a much needed off-day yesterday, the Reds (29-22) got right back on the winning track en route to a 4-1 victory over the Astros (22-30) on Friday night. Mike Leake led the way with a strong 7-inning performance and Jay Bruce hit another homer to provide all the offense needed. Cincinnati now sits in first place 2.5 games ahead of the nearest St. Louis Cardinals.
Votto was locked in on Saturday
Saturday's clash between the Reds (30-22) and Astros (22-31) provided no shortage of fireworks as the teams combined for 21 runs and 28 hits. But in the end, only one squad emerged victorious and that squad was Dusty Baker's bunch who prevailed over host Houston by a tally of 12-9.
Neither starter fared very well in this one, thus...
The Reds (30-22) attempted to sweep the Astros (22-31), but fell short Sunday afternoon losing by two runs, 3 to 5. Bronson Arroyo hit a speed bump this season, giving up 5 runs on 8 hits, throwing 106 pitches in 6.1 innings, with 4 K's but only walking one batter. The Reds remain in first place, 2.5 games above the St. Louis Cardinals who did not play today.
With their 12-9 field-goal-fest of a win at Houston on Saturday (whoops, wrong sport), the Cincinnati Reds moved to 30-22 on the season and increased their lead in the NL Central to 3.5 games over the second-place St. Louis Cardinals.
The Reds jumped out to an 8-2 lead over the Astros on Saturday, but Mat Latos continued his shaky pitching and quickly gave up the lead. Houston actually...

Joey Votto went 4 for 4 with a home run and a walk. Todd Frazier and Ryan Ludwick also connected for the Reds, who set a season high for runs. Brandon Phillips doubled in the go...
It’s just like two years never passed, and not just because the Reds are atop the division again (albeit feeling much less green this time around). I’m also talking about my RHM inbox, which features four emails that I’ve been holding on to since 2010. I was neck-deep in MBA coursework then, so I just held on to them thinking, “someday…”
I figure it’s now or never...
It was a solid series, but the Reds just couldn’t put together the sweep last night as they lost to the Astros 3-5. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have been getting beaten up by the Mets, putting the Pittsburgh Pirates in second place when I woke up this morning.
The Reds are off today; it’s their second off-day in less than a week. Tomorrow they host those second...
