Red Hot Mama:
The Reds won yesterday afternoon to take the last three games in the four-game series against the Padres. Johnny Cueto didn’t have his best stuff, but he still ate some innings and performed well enough to keep the Reds in it.
Ryan Ludwick, who had been dominant in the two previous games, sat yesterday, giving some other guys a chance to be heroes. Among them was Todd Frazier with 3 RBI. Final score: Padres 4, Reds 9.

CINCINNATI This is a tale of how two baseball parks affected the baseball career of Ryan Ludwick, one tearing it down and the other rebuilding it.
San Diego's Petco Park nearly destroyed it.
Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park resurrected it.

The month of July was very kind to the Cincinnati Reds. They were able to overtake the Pirates for first place in the NL Central after posting a 19-7 record during the 31-day span. That win total tied the Oakland A's for the most wins in MLB during July and was the partial result of a 10-game winning streak the Reds ripped off from 7/19-7/29. Even without Joey Votto in...
The Reds had to come back from deficits twice, but they finally put the game in the win column. After losing the first game in the series to end the win streak at 10, winning the third game officially starts a new streak. Final score: Padres 4, Reds 6.

At the beginning of July, the Reds visited San Diego for a four-game series with the Padres. They lost the first game and won the next three.

Earlier this season a lackluster offense kept manager Dusty Baker shuffling his lineup. Ryan Ludwick was hitting only .201 in mid June before going on a tear to raise his average over .260 and increasing his home run total to a team second-best 19. He drove in four last night as the Reds continue to roll wihout their best hitter, Joey Votto.
Just like the final series before the All-Star break, the Padres took game one from the Reds only to drop the final three in the long series. The series saw plenty of offense supplied by the Friars as they totaled 25 runs over the series, scoring at least four runs per game.
Former Friar Ryan Ludwick shined against San Diego pitching, going 6-12 with two homer runs and 10 RBIs in...
