Your browser does not support iframes. In case you missed it, Bronson Arroyo hurled a complete-game shutout Monday night against the San Francisco Giants, aided in part by a fantastic catch in center field by Derrick Robinson to put the finishing touches on an 11-0 victory. The play came in the bottom of the ninth with two outs when Arroyo flipped a hanging breaking bal in the wheelhouse of Giants hitter Jeff Francouer. Francouer pounded the pitch to deep center field and it appeared as though the ball would clear the fence and put the Giants on the board. But Robinson wasn't having any of that as he leaped up, pulled the ball back into play, and juggled it briefly before finally corralling the last out of the contest. Robinson's catch effectively sealed Arroyo's 100th win as a Red and improved Cincinnati's record over San Francisco to 4-0 in 2013.

CBS Sports writer Matt Snyder published this article on Monday which basically rips Brennaman, and...

Reds score in 7 straight innings

“Yeah! Shutout! That’s what people will remember!” (AP Photo/Marcio Jose Sanchez) I ought to be talking about how Ryan Braun will sit out the rest of the season. Heck, I haven’t even mentioned the thing about Brandon Phillips complaining that the team misled him about his last contract yet. But I am just too eager to see what last night’s line-score will look like in this...

Reds' Ryan Ludwick to begin rehab assignment Wednesday

Ludwick will take the next step in his recovery on Wednesday when he begins a minor league rehab assignment with Cincinnati's Single-A affiliate, according to Mark...

Mike Leake has been unbeatable on the road

Mike Leake is unexpectedly unbeatable on the road. Chad Gaudin's winning streak, however, may be more surprising. Leake looks to continue his mastery outside Cincinnati as the Reds attempt to solve Gaudin and re-establish their success against the San Francisco Giants in the finale of this four-game set Wednesday night. Leake (9-4, 2.79 ERA) is tied with Mat Latos for the team...

Corky Miller causes Reds Fans to ponder their very existence

This is from a Cincinnati Reds discussion forum I visit frequently to check the pulse of things. The discussion thread is titled “We have to talk about Corky”. Reds fans are starting to echo our same point about Corky Miller from a while back – we assumed it would be his final big league stint – and now that festered splinter is back. Here are their mortified responses. ...

Cozart finished 4 for 4 with two RBIs and three runs to back Tony Cingrani (4-1). The...

Reds split doubleheader after missed chances

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Even after his Reds fell behind early for a change, the way Cincinnati had been slugging it out against the San Francisco Giants left manager Dusty Baker confident his club would still pull off a win. Too many missed chances did in Cincinnati this time in a 5-3 loss to the Giants, and the Reds settled for a split of their traditional doubleheader Tuesday night...

Giants top Reds in Game 2

The Reds split a doubleheader with the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. But when you lose Game 2 in a long frustrating fashion, the split doesn't feel so even. "Long day," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Real long day." The Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 9-3 in Game 1 and fell 5-3 in Game 2 before a crowd of 42,310 at AT&T Park. In Game 2...

Lincecum rocked in his first start since no-hitter, Giants fall to Reds in series opener

Tim Lincecum got shelled, Bronson Arroyo was brilliant, and the Reds scored in each of the first seven innings on their way to route the Giants 11-0 in the first game of the series. It didn’t take long for the Reds to end Lincecum’s bid for another no-hitter, as Shin-Soo Choo led off the game with a double, and Derrick Robinson followed it up with a single. Lincecum struck out...

A Cincinnati Reds fan sported a wild 'do and team colors while attending the game against the Pittsburgh Pirates at the Great American Ball Park on Sunday.
