Reds Score Early and Late Win 6-5

Jay Bruce hit 2 home-runs but Rolen knocked in the winning one in the 9th. He gets the nod for the picture! Happy Easter Everyone. What better way to spend Easter Sunday than to hang out with the family, hunt eggs, and listen to the Reds on the radio. The game started off great as the Reds scored 3 runs in the first inning. However Bronson Arroyo coughed up several runs as Miami...

Source: Reds lock up 2B Phillips

The Reds, locking up another of their core players, have reached agreement on a six-year, $72.5 million contract with second baseman Brandon Phillips, according to a major-league source. The deal will replace Phillips' current one-year, $12.5 million contract, and extend from 2012 to '17, the source said. The sixth guaranteed year was important to Phillips, who turns 31...

Offense fails to show in Reds 3-1 loss to the Cardinals

Reds pitching was finally up to the task  but the bats failed to follow. Mike Leake gave up a homer early, very early but got it back together to pitch a solid game, giving up 7 hits, 3 runs walking 1 and striking out 4 in 6 innings. Sam LeCure also showed up with some solid re012/04/bailey-reds-offense-struggle.htmllief, walking 2 batters but striking out 3 in his sole...

Cards remain a threat with Carpenter sidelined

MILWAUKEE Mike Matheny held out hope as long as he could that pitcher Chris Carpenter would be healthy enough to return to the St. Louis rotation by Opening Day. When it became clear during spring training that Carpenter would miss extended time into the regular season, Matheny, the Cardinals manager, had no choice but to call for a backup plan. As backup plans go, he can do a...

Futures Game Videos Part I

Each day this week I will roll out a few videos from the Futures Game last week between the Reds and the Reds Futures prospects (unless another story is of more importance, but I doubt that happens since it is the second week of the season). All of the videos are available in 720p if you would like to watch them in HD. Here is the first set of videos: Donald Lutz Ryan Wright Tony Cingrani

Game 3, 2012: Reds Rise From the Dead on Easter Sunday

Jay Bruce got one off Heath Bell to tie the game at 5-5, bottom of the 9th. [Box Score] | Mark Sheldon | Redleg Nation | Red Reporter This was the type of win that builds chemistry when the season is still young. It was a huge victory for the Reds, pushing the Marlins out of town when they should have lost the opening series of the season. I returned from Easter brunch...

Game 3: Marlins 5, Reds 6

The Cincinnati took the rubber game of their first series of the year this afternoon by beating the Miami Marlins 5-6. Bronson Arroyo took the mound for the Reds and was downright good through six innings. Unfortunately, he pitched 6.1. At the end of his tenure, Arroyo allowed 5 runs (4 earned) … [visit site to read more]

Reds rallly in ninth to beat Marlins

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Scott Rolen drove in the winning run in the ninth inning with a sharp infield single that third baseman Hanley Ramirez failed to handle, lifting the Cincinnati Reds to a come-from-behind 6-5 win over the Miami Marlins on Sunday. Jay Bruce started the comeback with his second home run of the game and third of the season, an opposite-field drive into the left-center...

Reds Invest in Brandon Phillips

Get used to the way the right side of the infield looks in Cincinnati. It’s going to stay that way for a while. Today, the Cincinnati Reds locked up fan-favorite and second baseman Brandon Phillips, solidifying the tandem of Phillips and Votto for several years to come. But the good news comes at a cost. Phillips’ 6-year/72.5 million dollar contract is no small price to pay...

Three To Watch: Cardinals at Cincinnati

The defending World Champion St. Louis Cardinals roll into Cincinnati having taken two of three from the division rival Milwaukee Brewers. The Milwaukee series gave fans a glimpse of the 2012 team.  David Freese, Rafael Furcal and Carlos Beltran proved that they can hit.  Adam Wainwright showed he was healthy, even if he did not have his best stuff.  Jason Motte showed that...

Cards continue hot start, belt 2 HRs in win

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Carlos Beltran and David Freese homered again on Tuesday night, and Kyle Lohse provided another stingy performance, leading the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.
