Not much more to say as Reds lose 2-1 in 15 innings

CINCINNATI -- Maybe Great American Ball Park isn't so small after all? The Reds played an extra six innings Monday night but for the 10th straight game, including fourth in a row at home, they failed to score more than three runs. Three runs at least would have been enough offense to get them a win as they lost for the ninth time in 10 games, 2-1 in 15 innings to Arizona. It...

CINCINNATI -- In his never-ending quest to find a viable lineup that can score more than three runs a game, Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price extracted what he hopes is a gem out of the pouch and not a zircon.

No sugarcoating, excuses from Price as Reds offensive woes continue

CINCINNATI -- There was no way to for Bryan Price to sugarcoat Sunday's 4-2 loss by the Reds to the Washington Nationals, so the manager didn't try. "What it came down to is we're not scoring any runs," said Price. That pretty much says it all. It says everything about the Reds, who have lost eight of their nine games since the All-Star break. The Reds have...

Despite recent adversity, Frazier believes best is yet to come

CINCINNATI -- For most of this season, Todd Frazier's song when he walked toward the batter's box has been Frank Sinatra's 'Fly Me to the Moon.' But in recent times, during a seven-game losing streak, it should have been 'Moon River,' because the Cincinnati Reds were up the river without a paddle. So on Saturday afternoon Frazier changed his tune. It was...

Prospect Watch: Kyle Waldrop brought his boomstick

Notes from some performances last night There was a lot of 0′fers in the system last night, but Kyle Waldrop wasn’t one of them. The Blue Wahoos outfielder tripled and homered for Pensacola in a loss Saturday night. The 22-year-old has seemingly sacrificed some power in order to make more contact in 2014. The power output is down some, but his walk rate is up and the strikeout...

You don't have to be a baseball expert to notice how badly the Reds need offensive help.Entering Sunday, Cincinnati's depleted offense had mustered just 14 runs in eight games since the All-Star Break.

Cueto in familiar form as Reds end losing streak

CINCINNATI -- Johnny Cueto wasn't feeling so hot as he headed out to the Great American Ball Park mound Saturday afternoon. The temperature was a balmy 85 degrees but Cueto didn't feel as strong or as focused as he'd like. Everyone should feel so off.

The Night the Reds offense Put me to sleep at the Ballpark

[Box Score] [Cincinnati.com] I went down to Cincinnati last night with my buddy Joe to see Bryce Harper take some cuts. I was one of the 38,812 last night in a stadium that seemed packed to the rafters. A stadium that was so very quiet all night long because the Reds collected just four hits and as they so often do when the stadium is a sell-out; they just let down. Jayson Werth...

Everything marginal for Reds in losing streak

CINCINNATI -- The Reds were doing all kinds of things right before the All-Star break. They were the kinds of things that lead to winning eight of 11 games and feeling all warm and fuzzy about the prospects for the rest of the season. That time seems much longer than two weeks ago.
