The 'Big Three' came through with back-to-back-to-back hits
during the fourth inning of last night's 6-1 victory. Jay Bruce
cashed 'em in with his 9th homer of the year -- a 463-ft bomb
that nearly cleared the stadium in right center.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Reds' offense has been getting better lately. But it has been doing so with little help from the fourth spot.
After Sunday's 5-0 victory over the Pirates, the cleanup hitters are batting .171 with 10 RBI. They are last in the National League in average, slugging percentage and RBI.
A quick fix would to move Jay Bruce to the spot, but manager Dusty Baker has no plans...

Who needs an Ace? Not the Reds, they already have one.
Reds kept their series win streak alive in dramatic fashion, perhaps a bit too
dramatic, taking two of three in Milwaukee after a 2-1 victory over the Brewers
on Wednesday afternoon. It was more than just any victory, though, as this one
felt a little bit bigger. All the info after the break…
Jay Bruce hit a three-run home run and Bronson Arroyo pitched solidly into the seventh inning, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Monday night.
Bruce's ninth home run capped a five-run fourth inning off Marco Estrada (0-2). It extended his hitting streak to 10 games and Bruce is batting .405 (15 for 37) with six home runs and 12 RBIs during...
Despite Donnie Joseph allowing his first run and blown save,
the Blue Wahoos were victorious in 12.

ESPN released the latest edition of their weekly MLB Power Rankings on Monday and the Redlegs came in solid at no. 12. That's an improvement of five spots from last week's ranking (17th) -- only the Angels and Orioles made bigger jumps during that span (+6).
The team's rise in the poll was undoubtedly aided on the strength of a 3-2 record, which included a...
Cincy did something on Monday night that they had done just one other time in the past ten months, and that's win a game played on the first day of the week. The Reds took advantage of another great start by Bronson Arroyo (2-1) in upending the host Brewers (12-17) by a tally of 6-1. Dusty Baker's bunch was previously 1-10 in their past 11 games played on Monday (dating...
The bats for the Cincinnati Reds went quiet on Saturday night vs. the Pirates but they came to life Sunday afternoon as the Reds won 5-0 and took the series from Pittsburgh. Mat Latos struck out a career high 11 batters on Sunday and looked like the frontline starting pitcher the Reds traded for this offseason.
If you listen to us on iTunes we would certainly appreciate if you would...
The Cincinnati Reds are now without a left-handed bat off the bench. The club activated Miguel Cairo from the disabled list before Monday's game. To clear a roster spot, Cincinnati outrighted Willie Harris to Class AAA Louisville. Harris was the only left-handed hitter on the bench, but he's struggled so badly that the Reds kept Todd Frazier at Harris' expense. ...
I guess Mat Latos really is a better pitcher in May than April.
In his first start in May, Latos, who is horrible, just horrible, in his career in April, had his best start as … [visit site to read more]

Like the Cincinnati Reds in 2011, the Milwaukee Brewers are having some difficulty in the early stages of their NL Central title defense.
The injury-plagued Brewers will try to get headed in the right direction during their first matchup with the Reds this season, a three-game series that opens Monday night at Miller Park.
Milwaukee claimed its first division title since 1982 last...
The Reds recently announced that moving Aroldis Chapman to the rotation is not in the near future. I picked Chapman up the first week of the season when vultured his second win and since then he’s been nothing short of lights out. The problem – and this is why he went un-drafted in the league – is that he’s only the set-up man in Cincinnati. I’ve been waiting for the imminent...

Things started going badly in this one–again because of Homer Bailey’s inconsistencies.
He came out with 96 MPH stuff, some of the best velocity I’ve seen him have a in a long time and after retiring what seemed like the first two hitters of the game with ease, he came unraveled a little bit. He loaded the...
I don't know how to accurately describe the frustration that this game caused me watching it. The Pirates were very patient with Mat Latos in the first inning and drew three walks and were a nice Todd Frazier snag of a Casey McGehee line drive away from making breaking the inning open. Instead, they got nothing out of the first and never really threatened to score again all afternoon...
