The Southern Ohio Copperheads opened their best of three series with Xenia last night, in the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League semi-finals, with a 14-3 victory.

Leadoff batter Tyler Finkler went 2-for-3 at the plate with 4 RBI’s and also scored twice. Brett Impemba and Jake Farr also picked up 2 RBI for the Snakes. The two teams will square off again tonight at Bob Wren Stadium in Athens for game 2. The game can be heard live on Power 105 with pregame at 7:15 and the first pitch at 7:30. [more...]

Mike Leake pitched into the eighth inning and singled home a run — a rare commodity for the Reds these days — leading Cincinnati to a 3-0 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night. The Reds won for only the second time in 11 games since the All-Star break. The offense has been the biggest problem, scoring only 20 runs — by far the fewest in the majors over that span. Leake (8-9) had a single off the glove of diving third baseman Martin Prado that drove in a run in the second off Trevor Cahill, who has yet to win as a starter this season. Todd Frazier and Brayan Pena had RBI singles off Cahill, who fell to 0-6 in seven starts this season. Aroldis Chapman pitched the ninth for his 23rd save. He extended his streak of at least one strikeout in 45 consecutive appearances, a major league record for a reliever. [more...]

Nick Ahmed’s RBI single with two outs in the 15th inning sent the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 2-1 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night and kept their franchise perfect when games go really long. Arizona is 13-0 all-time in games of at least 15 innings. Ahmed’s single off J.J. Hoover gave the Reds their ninth loss in 10 games since the All-Star break, a slump that has dropped them below .500 for the first time since June 21. The offense has been the problem, scoring only 17 runs in those 10 games, by far the fewest in the majors. Oliver Perez  gave up a hit and a walk in two innings. Addison Reed got his 25th save in 30 chances. Cincinnati’s Aroldis Chapman fanned the side in the ninth, extending his major league record for a reliever to 44 consecutive games with at least one strikeout. [more...]

The Southern Ohio Copperheads picked up their 22nd win of the season Friday after they defeated the Lake Erie Monarchs 7-4 to clinch second place in the league. The Snakes fell to the Monarchs 4-3 in extra innings Saturday and Brett Impemba hit a grand slam last night to give Southern Ohio a victory in the season finale. The Copperheads went 13-2 down the stretch and will enter the tournament as one of the league’s hottest teams. The Snakes will open a three-game series in the GLSCL semifinals on Wednesday. They will play Game 1 on the road, with a home game Thursday and Friday, if necessary. [more...]

A number of Washington Nationals are enjoying success at the plate, while the Cincinnati Reds are searching for answers with the club on the brink of its longest losing streak in five years. The Nationals look to stay hot tonight when they visit Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati, where the Reds’ Alfredo Simon looks for his major league-leading 13th victory. Cincinnati is winless since the all-star break and hasn’t lost seven in a row since an eight-game slide in August of 2009. Tonight’s game versus the Nationals can be heard live on 970WATH and 97.1FM with pre game set for 6:40 and the first pitch at 7:10. [more...]

Jonathan Lucroy homered leading off the bottom of the ninth to give the Milwaukee Brewers a 4-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds last night. It was Lucroy’s second homer of the game and 11th of the season. It was his second career walkoff homer and both were against the Reds. His first was last season off closer Aroldis Chapman and this one was off Sam LeCure. Cincinnati, which is 0-5 since the All-Star break, brought in LeCure to pitch the ninth. His outing lasted just three pitches as Lucroy hit a 1-1 offering for a line drive homer inside the left field foul pole. [more...]

Milwaukee scored three runs on two misjudged balls in the outfield by Chris Heisey, and Wily Peralta pitched seven strong innings in the Brewers’ 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Monday night. Ryan Braun hit a two-run double in the third on which Heisey took a couple of steps in before retreating as the high liner went over his head. The four-year veteran with 134 career starts in left field apparently lost Carlos Gomez’s high fly ball to the warning track in the fourth inning that turned into an RBI ground-rule double that made it 4-0. Peralta allowed three hits, including Billy Hamilton’s solo homer. Francisco Rodriguez threw a 1-2-3 ninth for his 29th save. Cincinnati’s Mat Latos gave up four earned runs and eight hits in seven innings. [more...]
