Cueto, Bruce lift Reds past Cubs, 4-2

To sweep a doubleheader, as they say, you've got to win the first game. With that in mind, the Reds sent Johnny Cueto out to pitch Game 1 of the day-nighter against the Chicago Cubs. Cueto wasn't his usual dominating self, but he was good enough to beat the Cubs 4-2 before a crowd of 17,371 Tuesday afternoon. Cueto (9-6) went 6 1/3 innings and allowed the two runs on six...

Walks haunting Reds

CINCINNATI -- A walk proved decisive in the Reds' loss at Pittsburgh on Thursday. Nine walks were too many for even an 8-run lead on Friday. The Reds blew an 8-0 lead Friday to Toronto, losing 14-9. The Blue Jays led all of baseball in runs scored in May and, while their production has been down this month, they still own a lineup that shouldn't be given any extra help getting...

Parra has been a reliable reliever since joining the Reds 15 months ago. The 31-year-old southpaw appeared in […]

How Manny Parra Became My Favorite Player in 3 Words

Manny Parra was not always my favorite player. Some of you might remember when I said the Reds should give out booze, like they do with 11 strikeout pizza, when Parra and Alfredo Simon pitched in the same game. Parra has been pretty great lately, something I attributed to his Boston Rob like facial hair. After he got out of a late inning jam in the Reds win last night, I made more...

Cincinnati Reds: Is Parra the Man(ny) for the job?

The Cincinnati Reds threw fans for a loop there for a while. A 2-7 road skid dropped the team to third in the NL Central, and put them behind the eight ball, just before the All-Star Break. But before we get to the break, the Reds got a couple home series before Brandon Phillips and Joey Votto head to New York to represent the Reds in the All-Star game. In those two series (a near...

Things like the win-loss record and place in the standings do not tell the story of what it’s been like to follow the Cincinnati Reds the last couple weeks. This team always has its ups and downs. When Joey Votto starts slumping, it seems like everyone follows. When Shin-Soo Choo can’t get to one ball in center, it seems like he can’t get to any of them. When it rains it pours...
