A sure way to tell this is a special season – not even the
Philadelphia curse can keep the Reds at bay. The Redlegs found a way to win in
the City of Brotherly Love once again Wednesday night, holding on for a 3-2
Bronson Arroyo (10-7) was awesome on the hill, the Reds had
just enough timely hitting and Aroldis Chapman held on in the ninth
Billy Hamilton could be sprinting right to the major leagues come September. Hamilton, a prospect in the Cincinnati Reds organization, broke Vince Coleman's 1983 single-season minor league record of 145 steals with another impressive performance on Tuesday night. Hamilton's total now sits at 147, and it's safe to assume that number will continue to climb this season ...
The league leader in some major pitching categories while playing for a division front-runner, Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto is an obvious candidate for the NL Cy Young Award.
Philadelphia's Cole Hamels may be a long shot for that honor, but defeating the Reds could help bolster his resume.
Cueto aims to become baseball's first 17-game winner and lead Cincinnati to a rare...
The Reds won a real nail-biter against the Phillies last night. Every inning either team scored changed the lead. Homer Bailey had a real strong outing against an offense that had its way with the pitching the night before, and it was a Zack Cozart homer in the top of the ninth that put the team over the top.
This was a fun one to watch, and it sure is nice not to have...
PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Cincinnati Reds minor leaguer Billy Hamilton bolted to his record 146th stolen base of the season and kept running Tuesday night, swiping four in the first game of Double-A doubleheader. Hamilton added his 147th steal in the final inning of Pensacola's 4-2 loss to Montgomery. Hamilton stole 104 in the first half of the season with Class A Bakersfield...

Kept under control for most of the game, the Phils end up losing their second straight game to the Reds, losing 3-2.
The Reds take the lead in the fifth as, with a runner on second, and with two men out, Drew Stubbs hits an RBI single, scoring Ryan Hanigan, who had started the inning off with a walk, then moved up to second base on Bronson Arroyo’s sacrifice bunt, 2-4, giving the...
The Phils’ bullpen is once again unable to hold down the opposition in the late innings, as the Phils drop one to the Reds, 5-4.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with runners on the corners, and with one man out, Ryan Howard hits an RBI single, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had started the inning off by reaching first base on second baseman Brandon Phillips’ fielding...
In Vance's previous four starts, he had gone less than six innings and had allowed four or more earned runs. Vance would go six again, but it was a much better start than his last.
While Bronson Arroyo was tossing a no-hitter through five innings, the Reds were backing him up with some offense. In the fifth, Drew Stubbs singled to right to score Ryan Hanigan. Stubbs later...

A total of 41,794 fans, the moving ice cream containers, the Phantic, and oh, yeah, losing Phillies baseball.
My live trek with the Phillies started in Pittsburgh on April 5 , a 1-0 win on opening day.
I had to get to the park, I have Wednesday and Thursday off, so I decided to go to Wednesday matchup against the Reds, pitting Vance Worley vs. Bronson Arroyo at Citizens Bank Park...
Zack Cozart hit a tiebreaking homer on Jonathan Papelbon's first pitch in the ninth and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Phillies 5-4 Tuesday night to snap a seven-game losing streak against Philadelphia.
Kevin Frandsen hit a tying RBI triple off Jonathan Broxton in the eighth, but the NL Central-leading Reds went up to stay on Cozart's shot off Papelbon (3-5).

I think there is a Cy Young winner in the house tonight. Is it the home team's staff ace, Cole Hamels (14-6/IP-171.1 /ERA-2.94/K-168/BB-42/WHIP-1.11)? Is it his opponent Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto (16-6/IP-169.2/ERA-2.44/K-135/BB-37/WHIP-1.13)? Personally if I had a vote, it would have to go to Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. How does anyone get a hit off this guy? Without a...
