#Reds win 13-4 (Photos and Highlights)


Reds’ offense erupts in series win vs. Crew

Estrada allows three homers in loss to Reds
Marco Estrada improved his control, but his problem with giving up home runs continued, and it cost the Brewers in Sunday’s rubber match against Cincinnati. Estrada gave up three home runs — one solo shot and a pair of two-run home runs — and it was enough to down the Brewers in a 13-4 loss to the Reds at Miller Park. Source


Sunday drives: Reds hit 3 HRs in rout of Brewers
Marco Estrada entered the game leading the Majors in homers allowed, and the Reds added three more to his total as part of a season-high 13 runs and 19 hits. Billy Hamilton and Brandon Phillips homered in the first, then Todd Frazier went deep in the fifth. Source

#Reds Latos vs #Brewers Gallardo 06.14.2014


Reds roll out the welcome Mat for Latos
In a season plagued by injuries, the Reds have gotten used to welcoming stars back off the DL. Saturday’s game against the Brewers will include another important return for Cincinnati — right-hander Mat Latos, who will be opposed by Yovani Gallardo. Source

Reds vs Brewers

Mat Latos 55 | P
0 – 0 ERA -.–
2 – 4 ERA 3.64 (Career vs MIL)
Latos will be making his season debut after being on the disabled list rehabbing from elbow and knee surgeries. He had four pain-free rehab starts in Louisville and was stretched out to 100 pitches. He will replace Tony Cingrani in the rotation.

Yovani Gallardo 49 | P
4 – 4 ERA 3.71
7 – 7 ERA 4.44 (Career vs CIN)
Gallardo dominated the Pirates his last time out — four hits and one walk over seven shutout innings. In seven home starts this season, the right-handed ace owns a 4.01 ERA and 1.24 WHIP while fanning more than twice as many batters as he’s walked.

#Reds win 6-5 (Photos and Highlights)


Freaky Friday the 13th: Reds blow lead but win
Friday’s series opener went the Reds way, but not without some twists and turns. A blown four-run lead was recovered with a run in the top of the ninth on Billy Hamilton’s RBI single, and Cincinnati emerged with the 6-5 win at Miller Park. Source

Brewers rally after four errors but fall to Reds
The Brewers clawed out of a four-run hole with a seventh-inning rally, but Billy Hamilton’s ninth-inning single rendered the comeback moot, and the Brewers fell to the Reds, 6-5, on Friday at Miller Park. Source


Billy, do be a hero: Hamilton wins it for Reds
A full moon on Friday the 13th — perhaps that’s the best way to explain this game’s twists and turns. The Reds took advantage of four Brewers errors to take a four-run lead, but the lead evaporated. Up stepped Billy Hamilton, whose RBI single in the ninth secured the victory. Source

Matt Garza 22 | P

After posting a 5.00 ERA in April and 4.65 in May, he has allowed three earned runs in 12 1/3 innings so far in June, posting his first back-to-back victories in a Brewers uniform. But Garza is still grinding through games.

Heisey and Frazier use the force! #Reds win 4-3 over #Brewers in the 10th


Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier hit a 92 MPH fastball from Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg to score RF Chris Heisey to win the game in the 10th inning. This was another great game to watch and it is very nice to see all of the seats full for home games. I would say the Star Wars weekend went very well for the Reds and they should do more theme weekends if it helps the club win ball games.

C Brayan Pena hit another home run tonight and it was a bomb! He now has 3 home runs for the Reds this season and will soon break his season high of 6 which he hit in 2009 for the Kansas City Royals. Pena only has about 20 home runs in his whole career. Playing in Great American Ball Park will really help him this season with the long ball. Hopefully that does not take anything away from his swing and he still hits a .290+ BA. Another plus to him getting playing time is, RHP Johnny Cueto really seems to like him as a catcher and has thrown the ball very well.

#Reds use the fourth, with Chris Heisey


Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey is batting 4th today due to the late lineup scratch of RF Jay Bruce. Heisey has batted 4th in the lineup in 13 games, 2 of them starts. In 24 PA he has 3 hits, 1 run, 1 HR and 2 RBI with 2 BB and 6 SO giving him a .150 BA, .261 OBP, .300 SLG and a .561 OPS. Some people love him, some hate him and some really don’t care but I think we all can agree having him bat fourth in the lineup today is just crazy, especially after he just came off an 0 for 4 game batting first yesterday. I think manager Bryan Price is hoping he will come up big for the team today and many will say 13 games is way to small of a sample size to judge how well Heisey will do today. I hope they are right and he comes up big for the Reds today. Since it is Star Wars weekend at Great American Ball Park maybe Heisey will use the Force and hit some home runs!

#Reds RF Jay Bruce late scratch (Knee)


Cincinnati Reds RF Jay Bruce was a late scratch in the lineup today against Milwaukee Brewers due to knee soreness. Chris Heisey will take his place in the lineup and hopefully will get at least one hit this game.

#Reds Todd Frazier Career HBP


Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier was hit by a 92 MPH fastball in the bottom of the 4th by Milwaukee Brewers starter Yovani Gallardo. It took awhile for Frazier to finally walk to first base. This morning I thought about that moment in the game and thought I would check Baseball-Reference to see how many pitchers have hit Frazier in his career. Matt Garza and Johnny Hellweg are the only two pitchers to hit Frazier twice in his career.

Frazier has 22 PA against Gallardo in his career dating back to 2012 with 7 hits, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 1 BB and 2 SO. He has a .350 BA, .409 OBP, .500 SLG and a .909 OPS against Gallardo now.

My 2012 National League Central Standings


I have seen a lot of 2012 National League Central predictions and thought I would share my predictions. Many experts still think St. Louis Cardinals will be the top team, but if you look at my predictions I won’t show them any love at all, because I really think their losses out weigh their gains this offseason. Plus, they did not finish first last season with what they had so it is not easy for me to understand how people expect them to get first in 2012. I do think the Pirates will have a good season though and they could be a tough team to beat again for the Reds this season.

Now, of course these are just my early thoughts on what the standings will look like and I have been wrong many years. I do have a feeling though that the Cardinals and Brewers are going to have a tough time repeating what they did in 2011. Not just because of Prince Fielder and Albert Pujols but because of everything that has happened this offseason.

My 2012 National League Central Prediction:

1. Cincinnati Reds
2. Pittsburgh Pirates
3. Milwaukee Brewers
4. St. Louis Cardinals
5. Chicago Cubs
6. Houston Astros
