Garcia's eight innings were dominant as he did not surrender a walk and threw 70 of his 92 pitches for strikes. Garcia scattered seven hits on the night and struck out three Reds.

The way Tom Hallion describes it, David Price swore at him with his body language in yesterday's game and he responded, verbally. This makes total sense to me. Lord knows I've seen plenty of bad body language. Having 3 small kids, it is a daily occurrence. So, from now on, you know what I'm going to do? Anytime I catch my kids using bad body language, I'...
It's no secret to Reds fans that Jay Bruce has been struggling at the plate lately. And it appears as if those struggles have caused the Reds outfielder to reach a breaking point on Twitter.
The 26-year-old took to the social media site Tuesday night to vent about the heat he has been taking from fans this year. Here is the gist of what he had to say...
Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright may be off to a hot start, with a 2.03 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in six starts so far this season. However, the man isn’t just a pitcher, he’s a human being with many eclectic interests.
Wainwright recently sat down with the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to talk about being a foodie, among other topics. The 31-year-old right-hander also spoke about subjects...

For the second day in a row, Joey Votto wore his socks high, and for the second day in a row, the Reds won. It’s officially their longest road streak of the season. Is showing off his socks what Votto is paid to do? When it equals wins, I think you could argue that it is.
Mat Latos was...

St. Louis Cardinals rookie first baseman Matt Adams is on course to return from the DL on Tuesday when he is eligible, according to Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Adams (oblique) will join Double-A Springfield today to start a rehab assignment, then join the Cardinals in Chicago on Tuesday. Adams is looking forward to getting back into live games.

Yadier Molina had an RBI double off Jonathan Broxton that produced the...
Starting here in the month of May, the website is moving toward a hybrid “free content/paid content” system. There will still be daily content that will be free to everyone, but there will also be several features a week that will be behind a subscription wall that will just have small portions be “free for everyone” to see.
Why is the site going to a hybrid system?
