Todd Frazier catch leaves Keyvius Sampson in awkward position (VIDEO)

During the bottom of the fourth inning of Tuesday night's Cardinals-Reds game, Cincinnati third baseman Todd Frazier went a long way to catch a foul pop-up off the bat of St. Louis first baseman Matt Adams. Frazier went over the railing of the camera well to make the sensational catch and ended up having to hold on for dear life. Luckily for him, his pitcher Keyvius Sampson ...

Sampson goes back to mound for Reds

St. Louis' offense was tardy to the series opener against Cincinnati. John Lackey hopes it was just saving up for him.

Cincinnati (63-86) hasn't won much in the second half of the season but is 6...

JA Happ looks to lead Pirates to a series win in Cincinnati

For much of the afternoon, it looked like the Pirates were going to have a chance to make up another game on the Cardinals tonight. Then, the Cardinals came back with a late rally to steal a win from the Cubs, and so the Pirates will play to maintain the status quo tonight. The good news, I suppose, is that the Pirates will send JA Happ to the mound tonight to face Keyvius Sampson...

Looking back at the first start for RHP Keyvius Sampson

On Sunday afternoon the Cincinnati Reds sent right handed pitcher Keyvius Sampson to the mound to make his first big league start and only his second big league appearance overall. He had thrown an inning out of the bullpen a few days earlier, but seeing a lineup a few times through is a very different task.

The (Almost) Forgotten Men

At first glance it might not look like Keyvius Sampson and Rymer Liriano have much in common. A right handed pitcher and right fielder, respectively, their tracks up the prospect ranks would not normally be compared and their eventual promotion to the major league level would not seem to coincide. But there is more in common than you might expect. Both born in 1991, Liriano was signed...
