#Reds win 11-4 (Photos and Highlights)


Reds cruise after early strike
A seven-run third inning sent the Reds on the way to a rout of the Pirates and made things easy on Alfredo Simon, who became the NL’s first 10-game winner on a night that saw a historic hit from Gregory Polanco, a rain delay and a mound appearance by Travis Snider.

On a side note; I bet Snider will remember striking out Votto for the rest of his life and that should give him something to talk about for many years to come. Cozart walked, Hoover walked at his first career at bat and Hamilton hit while Votto struck out swinging.

How hot are #Reds hitters right now? Twitter knowledge!


Saw this on twitter and just had to share. Of course I never double checked it, because anything said on twitter is usually correct, right? Even if it is off, it sure looks nice for the Reds. Billy Hamilton is by far the most impressive player so far with the home runs from Todd Frazier a close second.

Heavyweight pop: Frazier slugs Bucs
In a back-and-forth game that saw Billy Hamilton (3-for-4, three steals, two runs) and Josh Harrison (4-for-5, two RBIs) go blow for blow, Todd Frazier stole the show with a go-ahead homer in the ninth to push the Reds to 5-2 since Joey Votto (three RBIs) returned. Source

Can #Reds repeat 2013 numbers on this day?


Last year at this time, Cincinnati Reds won big! Can they do it again in 2014? Here is what happened last year.


Cincinnati went deep four times and Tony Cingrani threw seven strong innings after his callup from Triple-A in the Reds’ 12-2 victory over the Cubs on Tuesday night. Todd Frazier, Joey Votto, Xavier Paul and Zack Cozart went yard to support Tony Cingrani, who allowed two runs over seven strong innings after his callup from Triple-A. Cody Ransom homered for the Cubs, but Matt Garza allowed a career-high nine runs.

Frazier and Votto come up big for the #Reds


3B Todd Frazier and 1B Joey Votto both hit home runs for the Cincinnati Reds in the 4-3 win over Colorado Rockies yesterday. Frazier’s blast was a bomb! Votto’s was another great home run against a left handed pitcher. (Something he has done a lot of this season.) Votto is seeing the ball great against left handed pitchers this season which makes me wonder if managers are going to start just leaving right handed pitchers in to face him instead of bringing in a left handed pitcher out of the bullpen.

Frazier's Blast!

Frazier likes it down the middle!

Votto's Blast

Votto likes it down the middle too!

#Reds change batting order (May 9, 2014)


Cincinnati Reds have changed things up for the first game against Colorado Rockies. Switch hitting Catcher Brayan Pena will bat 2nd, with 1B Joey Votto batting 4th. I am very happy to see RF Chris Heisey and SS Zack Cozart batting down in the order. I have included the hitters career BA in that spot in the batting order. I think Brayan Pena is going to have a big game along with Joey Votto.

1. CF Skip Schumaker .291
2. C Brayan Pena .200
3. 2B Brandon Phillips .275
4. 1B Joey Votto .309
5. 3B Todd Frazier .271
6. LF Ryan Ludwick .264
7. RF Chris Heisey .250
8. SS Zack Cozart .248
9. P Johnny Cueto .101

#Reds 2B Brandon Phillips 0 for 3 (May 7, 2014)


Cincinnati Reds 2B Brandon Phillips went 0 for 3 with a walk and a strike out in the 4-3 loss at Boston last night. I posted last night about 1B Joey Votto’s 0 for 4 night so I thought I would look more into what happened to Phillips also. Phillips saw a lot more pitches then Votto did but just could not get anything done to help the team out. Here is the run down on what pitches he saw and the results.
