Jay Bruce continued to stay red hot at the plate after hitting a homerun to deep right field to break a 1-1 tie in the seventh inning to help the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 2-1. Starter Dan Strailey was sensational for Cincinnati pitching 7 and 2/3 innings, allowing just three hits and 1 earned run with five strikeouts. Tony Cingrani tossed a perfect ninth for the save. Brandon Philips extended his hitting streak to 15 games after going 1-4 at the plate for the Reds, who have won four consecutive series since the all star break.  Cincinnati is off today before traveling to Petco Park in San Diego to face the Padres on Friday.

Matt Cain hit a three-run homer during his first win in more than two months, and the San Francisco Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-7 on Tuedsday night. Brandon Crawford had three hits and two RBIs, and Buster Posey and Denard Span added two hits apiece for the Giants. San Francisco won for only the second time since the All-Star break. It had been longer than that for Cain. The former Giants ace failed to make it past the fourth inning in his three previous starts and wasn’t much better against the Reds. He retired nine of his first 10 batters but quickly wore down and left with one out in the sixth after giving up the first of two homers by Adam Duvall. [more...]

Jay Bruce hit a pair of two-run homers to help Anthony DeSclafani remain unbeaten, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 7-5 on Monday night. Eugenio Suarez also homered and Joey Votto doubled and scored twice for the Reds, who began their road trip with a win following a 6-3 homestand. Bruce homered for the third consecutive game as part of a four-run fourth inning. He added his second of the night in the sixth to put the Reds up 6-5. It was the third multihomer game this season for the Cincinnati slugger and 20th of his career. DeSclafani pitched in and out of trouble and gave up two home runs but continued his strong run since missing the first two months of the season with a strained left oblique. [more...]

The Cincinnati Reds return to the baseball diamond tonight after having Thursday off when they welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks to Great American Ball Park. Joey Votto continued his hot recent pace with a two-run homer in Cincinnati’s 6-3 win over Atlanta on Wednesday. Votto is 11 for 20 in the last six games with two homers, a double and six walks. Tucker Barnhart also hit a two-run homer to back the pitching of Anthony DeSclafani who improved to 5-0 this season. Tonight’s game versus Arizona can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10. [more...]

Cleveland’s championship drought is over. LeBron James had a triple-double, Kyrie Irving’s 3-pointer with 53 seconds left put Cleveland ahead to stay and the Cavaliers beat the Golden State Warriors 93-89 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last night. It’s the first major championship for the city of Cleveland since the Browns in 1964. James had 27 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists, and Irving finished with 26 points for Cleveland — which erased a 3-1 series deficit to win the title. Draymond Green had 32 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists for the Warriors, whose bid for back-to-back titles was thwarted. Golden State won an NBA-record 73 games in the regular season, then fell short in the playoffs. They went scoreless in the last three minutes of the final game. [more...]

Antonio Campbell scored 21 points, Kenny Kaminski made five 3-pointers and Ohio rolled into the Mid-American Conference tournament semifinals with a 79-62 win over Northern Illinois last night. The second-seeded Bobcats opened the second half with a 14-6 run and eventually built their lead to 24 points over the Huskies, who had trouble stopping Campbell, the MAC’s player of the year. Ohio, which made 14 3-pointers, will face Buffalo in today’s semifinals. Kaminski had 17 points and Jaaron Simmons added 16 with 11 assists. Tonight’s semi-final game can be heard live on Power 105 immediately following the Akron/Bowling Green game, which begins at 6:30. [more...]

The Ohio University Bobcats return to the hardwood tonight when they face Northern Illinois in the quarterfinals of the Mid-American Conference Tournament in Cleveland. Ohio hung on in the regular season finale to edge archrival Miami 67-65 on Friday at Millett Hall in Oxford. Thanks to the win and Western Michigan knocking off Central Michigan, the Bobcats locked up the No. 2 seed and will now take on the 7th seed Huskies inside Quicken Loans Arena for a chance to reach the semi-finals on Friday. Tonight’s match-up between Ohio and Northern Illinois can be heard live on Power 105 with pregame at 6:00 and the tipoff at 6:30. [more...]

AJ McCarron overcame a rough start and threw a pair of touchdown passes Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Bengals to a 24-16 victory over the Baltimore Ravens that kept them in the running for a playoff bye. The Bengals matched the best record in franchise history — they also won 12 games during the 1981 and 1988 seasons when they reached the Super Bowl. The AFC North champions wasted a chance to clinch the No. 2 seed when they lost in Denver 20-17 on Monday night. The Ravens  completed a season that went sour early with close losses and more injuries than any other team in the league. Jeremy Hill ran for 96 yards and put the Bengals in control by breaking through the line for a 38-yard score on a fourth-and-1 play in the third quarter. [more...]

DeMarcus Ware beat AJ McCarron to a fumbled snap in overtime, sending the Denver Broncos into the playoffs with a 20-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night. Ware’s recovery followed a 37-yard field goal by Brandon McManus, whose shanked 45-yarder at the end of regulation made necessary the extra drama. The Broncos overcame a 14-0 first-half deficit in clinching their fifth consecutive playoff berth and denying the Bengals their first road win on a Monday night since 1990. Cincinnati also blew a chance to earn a bye in the playoffs. [more...]
