The RHM crew had the pleasure of attending Saturday night’s game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Houston Astros. Our seats were much better than the last time we saw a game, as evidenced by the much closer photos. Joey Votto exposed some skin to the crowd after his double. Once on base, he always puts on a knee brace.

Shoulder fatigue causes Chapman meltdown

Last Game The Reds won the series opener against the Pirates last night, 3-4, in 14 innings. This was a more exciting one to watch, with the team tying it up in the seventh, but it was also frustrating that they couldn’t get one more guy across the plate until the 14th. The Reds’ inability to string together hits for runs is annoying, but it’s been a problem that’s haunted...

Jay Bruce remains hot despite losses

Last Game It always seems to go this way: the worst team beats the best team when the two get together. Does the bad team get an extra jolt of adrenaline that pushes them over the top? Or does the good team fail to find the competitiveness? Or is everything bound to happen eventually as the number of games approaches infinity? The answer is unclear. What is clear is that the Reds...

Crane: Clemens may pitch for Astros

Astros owner Jim Crane says there's a possibility 50-year-old Roger Clemens could pitch for Houston this season. The Astros begin a week-long homestand on Monday that includes three games against the Cubs and four against the Phillies. Their only remaining home games after this stretch are against the Pirates and the Cardinals, two teams in postseason contention. Crane says...

Gonzalez has been a pleasant surprise for Astros

The remarkable ride continues for Edgar Gonzalez. From Class AAA to unemployment to the Mexican League to a deal with the Houston Astros and the chance to provide some depth to a rotation that needed it. Elite major-league starter isn't supposed to be the destination of this train and it's way, way, way too early to predict anything like that for the 29-year-old journeyman...

MLB Rumors: Roger Clemens Rules Out Astros Comeback In 2012, But Remains Open To 2013 Return

Roger Clemens has said that although his first two starts for the Independent League Sugar Land Skeeters went better than expected, he will not make his return to Major League Baseball in 2012 with the Houston Astros, but would not close the door on a possible comeback in 2013. Astros’ owner Jim Crane said that he thought that Clemens could come back to pitch for the...

Game 141: Astros 5, Reds 1

The Reds finished off the series with the Astros last night by losing by the same score they won by on Saturday. That loss made for another losing series for the Reds and minor slippage to 8.5 games in the lead of the NLC. It was Johnny Cueto on the mound, and he had a stinker of an outing. He worked 4.0 innings, during which he allowed 4 runs on 9 hits and a walk. Blerg. That...

Astros 5, Reds 1

Matt Dominguez hit a three-run homer, Tyler Greene added a solo shot and the Houston Astros slowed Cincinnati's run to the NL Central title with a 5-1 win over the Reds on Sunday. Edgar Gonzalez allowed two hits and one run in five innings against the Reds, who came in with a magic number of 14 for eliminating second-place St. Louis. Gonzalez (2-0) walked one and struck out...

Reds beat Pirates in 14th thanks to Ludwick

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Ryan Ludwick's simple grounder ended the Reds' longest game of the season. No such reprieve for the Pittsburgh Pirates, whose misery goes on. Ludwick drove in the winning run with a two-out infield single in the 14th inning, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a marathon 4-3 victory Monday night that handed the fading Pirates their fourth straight loss. Rick...

Game 142: Pirates 3, Reds 4

“I stunk,” [Ludwick] said. “I stunk the entire game. I felt like I had a thousand chances to win the game. I finally did it on 1,001st. Every time I got up, there were runners in scoring position and less than two outs. I stunk. I’m glad I got the job done in the 14th.”That was a very, very long game. In a game that took 5 hours and 22 minutes to play, the Cincinnati Reds...

Reds Win in 14 Innings

The Reds dodge some extra-inning bullets and won a fourteen-inning thriller by a score of 3-2 over the Pirates last night at Great American Ball Park. Ryan Ludwick ended the game with a walk-off infield single. It was the fourth consecutive game that manager Dusty Baker gave the start in center field to Chris Heisey over the slumping Drew Stubbs. Heisey homered and his now hitting .287.

Crane: Clemens may pitch for Astros this year

HOUSTON (AP) -- Astros owner Jim Crane thinks Roger Clemens' comeback could continue in Houston. That would be news to the 50-year-old right-hander, who doesn't sound too interested in the idea. Crane said Monday there's a possibility Clemens could pitch this season for the majors' worst team. "We haven't heard from Roger, so that's still up in the...

Reds need to forget postseason and refocus

By HAL McCOY FOXSportsOhio.com CINCINNATI -- What Dusty Baker feared most materialized this weekend -- premature talk of postseason play might distract the job at hand, no matter how menial it seemed. And it couldn't have seemed more menial with the Houston Astros coming to town, towing 95 losses with them. They hadn't won a series on the road in 2 years -- not since early...
