Jay Bruce returned to right field and hit another two-run homer on Tuesday afternoon, and Johnny Cueto extended his winning streak against Chicago, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory over the Cubs in the opener of a doubleheader. Bruce played first base for the first time since high school and hit a two-run homer in his final at-bat during a 9-3 win on Monday night in the opener of the five-game series. He was back in the outfield and homered again in the first inning off left-hander Travis Wood. [more...]

Jay Bruce played first base for the first time since high school and committed an error that let in a run Monday night, but later homered to help the Cincinnati Reds rally for a 9-3 victory over the Chicago Cubs in the opener of a five-game series. Billy Hamilton drove in a career-high four runs with a single and a bases-loaded triple. The Reds have won 11 of their last 16 games despite getting little production from injured first baseman Joey Votto. Mike Leake gave up a two-run homer by Anthony Rizzo and an unearned run off Bruce’s error during seven innings. He improved to 8-2 in his career against Chicago, including 4-0 in his last four starts with a 1.71 ERA. The Reds and Cubs will square off twice in a day-night doubleheader today. Both games can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with the first one at 1:10 and the night game at 7:10. [more...]

Jay Bruce emerged from the deepest slump of his career with a tiebreaking homer in the eighth inning on Sunday, rallying the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. The Reds gained a game on the NL Central leaders by taking two of three in their series, moving to six back, and have won 10 of 15 overall. The Brewers have lost five of six but still have the NL’s best record and a comfortable lead. Bruce hit a two-run shot with one out in the eighth off left-hander Will Smith, who took over for starter Yovani Gallardo. Mat Latos allowed two runs and four hits in a season-high eight innings. Jonathan Broxton pitched the ninth for his sixth save in eight chances. The Reds will look to keep the momentum going tonight and welcome the Chicago Cubs to Great American Ballpark to begin an unusual 5-game series. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10. [more...]

The Cincinnati Reds are looking to rebound after being swept by San Diego, when they welcome Milwaukee to Great American Ballpark tonight to begin a 3-game series.  The Brewers have been in first place in the National League Central since April 9, and despite losing their last three games, are enjoying a comfortable lead in the division as the All-Star break nears. But one division foe they’ve had trouble with this season is the Reds. Milwaukee has lost five of seven contests against Cincinnati in 2014. While the Brewers hope to reverse that trend this weekend, the Reds look to take advantage of the head-to-head matchup with the division leaders and shave down their deficit in the NL Central. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10. [more...]

Tyson Ross threw a three-hitter for his first career shutout and Rene Rivera hit a three-run single off big league ERA leader Johnny Cueto as the San Diego Padres beat the Cincinnati Reds 3-0 Wednesday for their first three-game sweep since September. The Padres, who tied their season high with their fourth straight win, hadn’t swept a series since last season versus Colorado. Ross was dominating in throwing his first complete game in 55 career starts. He struck out nine and walked none. Cueto, who came in with the best ERA in the majors, took the loss and fell to 8-6. The reds are off tonight before starting a big 3-game home stand with the Milwaukee Brewers tomorrow at Great American Ballpark. [more...]

Seth Smith hit a home run and scored three runs, Carlos Quentin also homered and drove in three runs, and the San Diego Padres beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 Tuesday night. Smith had three hits as the Padres finished with a season-high 16 one night after managing just one hit in a win over the Reds. Ian Kennedy pitched six strong innings, giving up one run and seven hits with a walk and three strikeouts to get his first win in nearly a month. Quentin’s two-run homer in the four-run, seventh inning was the key blow when the Padres extended their lead to 7-1. Mike Leake allowed three runs and 11 hits in 5 2-3 innings. Cincinnati will look to end a 2-game skid this afternoon and will send Johnny Cueto to the mound. Today’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame set for 3:10 and the first pitch at 3:40. [more...]

Everth Cabrera’s sacrifice fly in the fifth inning scored the game’s only run, and the San Diego Padres topped the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 Monday night despite managing just one hit. Tommy Medica’s single in the second was the only hit for the Padres, who got solid pitching behind rookie Jesse Hahn and four relievers to end Cincinnati’s season-high five-game winning streak. Huston Street pitched the ninth for his 22nd save in as many chances for the Padres. Mat Latos allowed one run, a hit and a walk over seven innings in absorbing the tough-luck loss against his former team.

Homer Bailey made a strong bid for yet another no-hitter, shutting down San Francisco until Buster Posey’s two-out single in the seventh inning, to lead the Cincinnati Reds past the Giants 4-0 Sunday. Bailey has thrown no-hitters in each of the last two seasons, and did it against the Giants at home last July. Bailey finished with a three-hitter as the Reds completed their first four-game sweep in San Francisco since doing it at Candlestick Park in 1972. Billy Hamilton, Brandon Phillips, Brayan Pena and Skip Schumaker drove in runs as the Reds won their season-best fifth straight and eighth in nine overall. It was the first time the Giants were swept in a four-game series in their ballpark that opened in 2000. [more...]

Jay Bruce and Todd Frazier each added two hits for the Reds, who have won five of six. Bruce doubled in the seventh and has an extra-base hit in each of his last seven games, the longest streak by a Reds player since Dave Parker did it in eight straight in 1986. Cincinnati will look for its third consecutive win tonight and will send Johnny Cueto to the mound. Tonight’s game at San Francisco can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game at 9:45 and the first pitch at 10:15. [more...]

Mat Latos pitched seven sharp innings for his first win of the season and Jay Bruce had two run-scoring doubles, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs last night. With the wind blowing in on a cold summer night, Devin Mesoraco’s five-game homer streak came to an end. The Reds catcher was tied with Adam Dunn, Ken Griffey Jr., Johnny Bench, George Crowe and Ted Kluszewski for the franchise record. Latos allowed one run and five hits in his third start after beginning the season on the disabled list. Aroldis Chapman pitched a scoreless ninth for his 14th save in 15 chances.
