While the Cincinnati Reds usually find a way to win with Mat Latos on the mound, the Miami Marlins are having trouble scoring regardless of what pitcher they're facing. The undefeated Latos will try to win a fifth consecutive start and lead the Reds to their season-best sixth straight victory Thursday against a Miami team that has the worst offense in the majors. Following a 4-0 victory Wednesday, Cincinnati (24-16) goes for a three-game sweep at Marlins Park in the opening series of a nine-game road trip. Leadoff man Shin-Soo Choo matched a career high with four hits, including two homers, and four Reds pitchers combined to hand Miami (11-29) its league-worst seventh shutout. "This ballpark is big," said Choo, who has a team-leading nine home runs. "Some balls fly, some don't. I'm not thinking about hitting homers. I'm just swinging hard." While Choo has two multihomer efforts in his last seven games, Miami has gone deep three times over its last...

All your base are belong to Choo

You have no chance to get him out make your time.The Cincinnati Reds grabbed the series win from the Miami Marlins yesterday, thanks to a monster performance from Shin-Soo Choo.

In the first inning, Choo scored...

Video: Watch Aroldis Chapman throw mind-bending pitch

Your browser does not support iframes. We already knew Aroldis Chapman was filthy on the mound. However, the final pitch he threw to Miami Marlins hitter Derek Dietrich Wednesday night was simply mind-bending, not to mention virtually unhittable.

MIAMI (AP) -- NL RBI leader Brandon Phillips homered in the sixth inning and drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the 10th, helping the Cincinnati Reds complete their second three-game sweep in a row by beating the Miami Marlins 5-3 Thursday night.

Young Marlins eager to get back to work in Miami

MIAMI Nearly four hours before Tuesday nights first pitch and a full 90 minutes before batting practice, several Miami Marlins were on their home turf performing drills under a bright sun thanks to the open roof. Clearly, a rough start to Miamis season and a just-completed 3-7 road trip hadnt diminished the players desire to improve. Perhaps the Marlins were buoyed knowing 14...

Reds' Johnny Queto says he "feels ready" to return

Johnny Cueto is in the midst of a rehab assignment following a strained lat muscle he suffered a month ago.  The injury was thought to be minor originally, but the Cincinnati Reds excersied caution and eventually placed Cueto on the disabled list.  After some bullpen sessions, a set back here and there, and a couple minor league rehab starts, Cueto feels ready to make his big...

Reds hope for better luck against Lee

Though the Cincinnati Reds swept a three-game home set from the Philadelphia Phillies last month, they didn't do much against Cliff Lee. Looking for a seventh consecutive victory overall and on the road, the Reds hope to get the best of Lee on Friday night. Cincinnati (25-16) outscored Philadelphia 16-4 during the April 15-17 series, but was held scoreless by Lee (4-2, 2.86 ERA...

Nolasco Lacks Control in Loss

Ricky Nolasco had a rare off-night in terms of control walking two with the bases loaded in the Miami Marlins 6-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.   Known for his exceptional control, it was a strange sight to see the Marlins’ ace allow those two run scoring free passes during a five run second inning.   The loss was the third in a row for Miami and the team continued...

Miami Marlins Release Pitcher David Aardsma

The Miami Marlins have released pitcher David Aardsma. He should catch on to another organization pretty quickly and get a chance at the majors soon; a good reason why it is being rumored that he is the one that decided to opt out of his minor league deal with the organization. The post Miami Marlins Release Pitcher David Aardsma appeared first on FFLockerRoom | NFL News | MLB...

Leake Stifles Marlins

The Miami Marlins put together eleven hits on Wednesday but couldn’t score one run as they were shut out 4-0 by Mike Leake and the Cincinnati Reds.  With a run coming in the first inning, Miami trailed all game to fall to 11-29 on the year.   The Marlins continue to stay on a pace that could come close to the worst record in MLB history.

Marlins fan ask Giancarlo Stanton to school prom

There are still a few fans of the Miami Marlins out there. One of them recently asked the teams star Giancarlo Stanton to the prom. High school student Megan Diaz is a softball player in the Miami area and says that no other Marlins player will suffice. It may be all for naught though. By going to the prom with Diaz the Miami star would be missing a game on May 24th in Chicago against...
