Tom Brady rebounded from the second worst loss of his career by throwing for two touchdowns and becoming the sixth quarterback to pass for 50,000 yards as the New England Patriots routed the NFL’s last unbeaten team with a 43-17 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday night. [more...]

The Ohio State Buckeyes moved up a few spots in the Coaches Poll after their impressive win over in-state foe Cincinnati. Ohio State found themselves rising in the ranks of the college football world on Sunday morning, as the Buckeyes rose to No. 18 in the Amway Coaches Poll Top 25. The Buckeyes were ranked 20th last week, but clearly impressed voters enough to move up slightly in the rankings after a record setting Saturday. With J.T. Barrett and the offensive line looking much improved, and Ezekiel Elliott playing the best game of his young career up to this point, voters have to be liking what the Buckeyes have produced in the past three weeks. With the Big Ten slate coming up this week against Maryland, Ohio State will have plenty on the line as they try and get back into the hunt for the College Football Playoff. [more...]

The Pirates couldn’t stop Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto, who drove in the go-ahead run and got his 20th victory yesterday, during a 4-1 win that gave the NL Central title to the St. Louis Cardinals and forced Pittsburgh to settle for a wild card. Pittsburgh needed to beat the Reds and have the Cardinals lose later in the day at Arizona to pull even for first place and set up a one-game tiebreaker Monday. Instead, Cueto settled the division race with eight impressive innings. Cincinnati ends its season 10 games under .500 with a (76-86) record. [more...]

Kyle Lohse made the most of another wasteful day for Milwaukee’s offense, throwing a two-hitter and driving in a run on Wednesday night for a 5-0 victory that forestalled elimination from the playoffs a bit longer.The Brewers led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Since June 28th, they’ve gone 30-45. The offense has unraveled, scoring two or fewer runs in each of the previous six games. Lohse gave up a pair of singles by Jack Hannahan in his second shutout of the season. Lohse was 2-1 in five starts against the Reds this season with a 2.13 ERA. Cincinnati and Milwaukee will conclude their 3-game series this afternoon inside Great American Ballpark. 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...]

Johnny Cueto kept his hopes of a 20-win season alive, and Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco hit back-to-back homers last night, sending the Cincinnati Reds to a 3-1 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers. Cueto gave up a Carlos Gomez homer over eight innings. He’ll pitch Cincinnati’s final game on Sunday against Pittsburgh at Great American Ball Park. The Reds haven’t had a 20-game winner since left-hander Danny Jackson in 1988. The last Reds right-hander to win 20 games was Sammy Ellis in 1965. Milwaukee led the NL Central for 150 days, but fell apart at the end. Up by 6 ½ games on June 28, the Brewers have gone 29-45 and fallen far behind Pittsburgh and San Francisco in the wild card race. The Reds will look to make it three-in-row tonight when they send Daniel Corcino to the mound. Tonight’s game can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pregame at 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10.

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...]
