My Daughter at the Reds game with Dad.
The weather may have been a little iffy, but as it cleared up into a really nice day, the Reds also turned it into a really nice day.
Mat Latos had another rough outing, giving up 10 hits and 5 runs in 6 1/3 innings. He had this to say:
“I felt a little under the weather today,” Latos said. “I was just out there trying to grind for the...

Jay Bruce hit his 7th home run of the season yesterday, a game-winning drive to the seats in right center. The home run was his fourth in four games. He’s the first Red to do that since Adam Dunn in 2008. The Reds come from behind to beat Houston 6-5, winning the must-have series and heading into a Monday day-off.
I found a great read after the game yesterday while listening to...

It's hard enough to grab a home run ball, the odd's are stacked against you from the get-go. But try doing it while holding the precious cargo known as your daughter. That's exactly what this Reds fanatic attempted to do last Thursday when Jay Bruce deposited this ball over the outfield wall.
Not only did he fail to secure the catch (he held onto...

Couple of random take home points about yesterday’s game, which was one of my favorite Reds games I’ve been to:
It was the best game that Jay Bruce has had that I’ve been to, if you’re not counting his MLB debut. The home run was a bomb. The defensive double-play assist. The double down the line. Four RBI’s...
The Reds over the past week welcomed in the Giants for a three game series followed by the Astros for a three game series. It was a week that saw the team win both of the three game series' and was a week that saw the guys have a winning record overall during the week. Let's take a look at how the past week was for Dusty and the gang.
Record For The Week: 4-2...
