The Cincinnati Reds took advantage to how poorly the the Chicago Cubs have been playing this season beating them 9-4. In a season that has seen the Reds spend a fortune on players like Joey Votto the team hasn’t gotten off to the greatest of starts. Beating the Cubs isn’t really that big of a deal. However for the Reds a win is a win. The Reds would get on the board in the first inning with a Joey Votto hit to right field bringing in Drew Stubbs to get the Reds on the board for their first run. It would be Votto’s only hit on the night.
Cincinnati would get three more runs in the first inning when Chris Heisey singled to center scoring Votto and Bruce. It wasn’t over there, Willie Harris grounded out to first base and that brought Scott Rolen across the plate to make it 4-0 Reds in a game they never had to look back in.The Reds would pick up two more runs on the fourth and a run in the sixth, eighth and ninth to give them a win over the Cubs who clearly have been struggling all season long. With the win the Reds move to a 6-8 record and they trial the St. Louis Cardinals by 4 games.

Iowa Dave Sappelt hit his 2nd HR of the year and Anthony Rizzo knocked in 3 RBI's. Adrian Cardenas keeps killing the ball down there and Vitters is now sporting a sweet .635 OPS. But at least he has 5 walks vs 6 k's. Keep in mind he is still young for AAA. Casey Coleman [...]

Nick Cafardo was the first to report that the Cubs and Red Sox are working on a deal to send Marlon Byrd to the Red Sox. It would also make sense of the earlier roster move today where the Cubs called up Tony Campana to put Ryan Dempster on the disabled list since they still need to lose a body to make room for Randy Wells tomorrow.
Bruce Levine is saying the Cubs will get a left...

I texted a couple of my buddies who share my love/hate with the Reds with me yesterday while perusing the box score. The Reds had closed out a key 6-3 win in their house of horrors against a hot St. Louis Cardinals team. They had lived to fight another day. The season wasn’t over, yet. Bronson...

Billy Hamilton manufactured the only run of the game when he scored on a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the ninth. Even though Tony Cingrani did not hang around long enough to pick up the win, he turned in his second dominant outing on the young season by shutting out the Giants through seven innings.
