June 16, 1978 - Tom Seaver pitches the only no-hitter of his career in a 4-0 Reds win over St. Louis at Riverfront Stadium. Previously, Seaver had entered the ninth inning with a no-hitter three times, and surrendered a base hit on each occasion. In this game in the ninth, he walked Jerry Mumphrey leading off, induced Lou Brock to fly out to left field, retired Gerry Templeton on a force out, and ended the game on a weak grounder by George Hendrick to Dan Driessen at first base. Seaver walked three and struck out three.
Seaver was the third native of Fresno, California to pitch a no-hitter for the Reds. The first two were Ewell Blackwell and Jim Maloney.
Seaver is also the last pitcher in club history to throw a true no-hitter in a game. Tom Browning threw the franchise's first and only perfect game over two years later on September 16, 1988. No Reds pitcher has thrown a no-hit...
BEST OF MAXIM
Score another one for the walking wounded
It's official. Another Reds player has fallen victim to the injury bug and that unfortunate soul is Drew Stubbs. The team opted to place the ailing outfielder on the disabled list today (retroactive to 6/6) and immediately recalled fan favorite (*tongue in cheek*) Willie Harris from Triple-A Louisville to take his spot on...
Rolen will be back in red soon.

-Chad Reineke (L 2-5, 4.14) went seven innings and allowed just two earned runs, but still took the loss. Bill Bray had a rough rehab outing, giving up two earned runs in just 2/3 of an inning. Donnie Joseph pitched a scoreless inning with two strikeouts...
Lest you think that sweep of the Indians was a fluke, the Reds extended their winning streak to 4 games last night by beating the Mets 7-3.
Bronson Arroyo started for the Reds and put in 6.0+ innings of work. He allowed the Mets’ 3 runs (earned) on 4 hits and 2 walks. Among those hits were his 12th and 13th home runs allowed of the year.

NEW YORK -- Jay Bruce hit another big home run to get the Cincinnati Reds on the board and Homer Bailey shut down the Mets as Cincinnati beat New York, 4-1, for the second straight night. The Reds won their fifth game in a row as Bailey (5-4) pitched eight innings of one-run ball. Aroldis Chapman earned his eighth save of the season with a scoreless ninth. Bruce -- who hit the...
NEW YORK -- Before the game, Cincinnati Reds manager Dusty Baker shook his head. A life-long student of the game as a player and manager, he was as stumped as an average fan on some questions. He pointed to how the New York Mets had scored 29 runs against an impressive Tampa Bay Rays pitching staff in a three-game sweep entering the weekend, then struggled against the Reds in the...
Neither the Cincinnati Reds nor New York Mets have a particularly potent offense, though each team's bats have seemed to come alive lately.
Both coming off sweeps that ended recent struggles, the Reds and Mets look to continue their hot hitting in the opener of a three-game set Friday night at Citi Field.
Cincinnati (35-27) sits atop the NL Central largely due to a 3.57 ERA...
