Andy Dalton caught a touchdown pass — the first Bengals quarterback to pull off that feat — as Cincinnati stayed undefeated on Sunday, beating Tennessee 33-7. The Bengals head into their bye week with their best start in eight years. A few hours before kickoff, the Titans learned that kicker Rob Bironas had died overnight in a one-car crash in Nashville. He’d been released in March after his ninth season with Tennessee. The Titans committed a safety for holding in the end zone on a punt, missed two field goal attempts, snapped the ball before Jake Locker was ready in shotgun formation, and whiffed on the game’s defining play. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson let Dalton catch Mohamed Sanu’s pass and go 18 yards for the score. [more...]

Week four of the high school football season gets underway tonight across the region. Athens, the No. 3 team in the state in DIII, will travel to Albany to take on the (2-1) Spartans. The Bulldogs will be looking for their 16th consecutive TVC-Ohio win, while Alexander eyes its third win if four games under first year head coach Alex Penrod. The game can be heard live on Power 105 WXTQ with pregame at 7:15 and the kickoff at 7:30. Trimble will put its 21 regular season win streak on the line versus Waterford in Glouster. Nelsonville-York welcomes River Valley to the Ohio Division when they take on the Raiders in Bidwell – and Federal Hocking hosts Eastern over in Stewart. [more...]

Kyle Hendricks kept up his impressive rookie season, pitching seven strong innings as the Chicago Cubs beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-1 Wednesday night for a sweep. [more...]

Jake Arrieta took a no-hit bid into the eighth inning before giving up Brandon Phillips’ one-out double, the only blemish for the Chicago Cubs pitcher in a 7-0 shutout of the Cincinnati Reds last night. Arrieta struck out 13 and walked one in his first major league complete game. He was five outs from the first no-hitter at Wrigley Field in 42 years when Phillips drove an 0-2 pitch to deep left-cente field. It was the third time this season Arrieta has flirted with a no-hitter. The Reds will try and avoid being swept by the Cubs tonight at Wrigley. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame set for 7:35 and the first pitch at 8:05. [more...]

Anthony Rizzo capped his return to the Cubs lineup with a walk-off home run in the ninth inning that gave Chicago a 1-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds last night. Rizzo had missed the last 18 games due to a back problem but drove a pitch from Pedro Villarreal over the wall in center field. Rizzo’s homer was his 31st of the season and gave Hector Rondon the win after he tossed a scoreless inning of relief. Cincinnati starter Alfredo Simon gave up five hits in seven innings. The Reds will look to even the series tonight at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 7:35 and the first pitch at 8:05. [more...]

Running back Giovani Bernard picked up the Bengals offense missing receiver A.J. Green yesterday, and Cincinnati’s defense held down yet another top quarterback for a 24-10 victory over Atlanta. The Bengals won their home opener and improved to 2-0 for the first time since 2006 despite losing several key players to injury, most notably Green. The Pro Bowl receiver aggravated an injured toe on his right foot and left during the opening series. Cincinnati had more than enough left to handle the Falcons, who gave up nearly 500 yards for the second straight game. [more...]

Johnny Cueto pitched eight scoreless innings to beat Lance Lynn 1-0 and send the St. Louis Cardinals to their third consecutive loss Thursday. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 33rd save and third in the last three games. Cueto allowed just three hits to help the Reds win their second series in the last 13 against Central Division-leading St. Louis. [more...]

Alfredo Simon shook off a rough start but lasted seven innings and drove in the go-ahead run as the Cincinnati Reds rallied for a 4-2 win over the St. Louis Cardinals last night. Ryan Ludwick hit a solo home run to help the Reds win back-to-back games for the first time since Aug. 27-28 against the Cubs. Simon allowed five hits and two runs with three walks and five strikeouts for his second win in eight decisions over 11 starts since the All-Star break. Sam LeCure and Ryan Dennick pitched the eighth, and Aroldis Chapman worked a perfect ninth for his 32nd save. Cincinnati will look to win the series today as it goes for its third win a row. Today’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 12:05 and the first pitch at 12:35. [more...]

Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in three runs, and Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and doubled home a run, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-5 victory on Tuesday night that ended their six-game losing streak against the St. Louis Cardinals. The NL Central leaders lost for only the second time in 11 games and maintained their 4½-game lead over Pittsburgh. St. Louis is 10-4 against the Reds and 40-25 overall in the division. The Reds won for the third time in 11 games. They are 17-33 since the All-Star break, a slide that has dropped them out of contention. Leake was coming off his worst start of the season, giving up a season-high seven runs and three homers during a 9-7 loss in Baltimore last Thursday. Against the Cardinals, Leake allowed three runs and eight hits. [more...]

Matt Carpenter broke a scoreless tie with his two-run single in the seventh inning, Matt Adams added a three-run homer, and the St. Louis Cardinals extended their surge in the NL Central by beating the Cincinnati Reds 5-0 on Monday night. St. Louis has won nine of 10, going from two games out to a season-high 4 1/2 games up in the division – and improved to 10-3 against the Reds this season. Shelby Miller gave up three hits while pitching into the eighth and getting his first victory in three starts against Cincinnati this season. The Reds will look to take game two of the series tonight at Great American Ballpark. The game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame set for 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10.
