John Fay Cincinnati Enquirer Published 12:01 AM EDT Apr 27, 2019 ST. LOUIS – The way the Cincinnati Reds starting pitchers have been throwing, a little offense goes a long way. The Reds got more than a little offense Friday night. They opened their series with the St. Louis Cardinals with a 12-1 victory before a sellout crowd of 45,087 on a chilly night at Busch Stadium. Eugenio Suárez, Jesse Winker, Joey Votto and José Peraza hit solo shots and Yasiel Puig hit a two-run shot. The Reds have won six of their last eight and are 10-6 since the 1-8 start. The good streak has come from winning close games. Friday was opposite of a close game. "You just never get to point where you relax," Reds Manager David Bell said. "We've had so many close ones. I think in the end, it will make us a better team. I think it already has. It's brought us together. But it was nice to have a little bit of breathing room against a really good offense."

Wyatt D. Wheeler Springfield News-Leader Published 4:40 p.m. UTC Aug 1, 2018 Smiling in the front row of the St. Louis Cardinals game at Busch Stadium on Tuesday night was Nelly, who was letting everyone see his grillz. In addition to the smile (which didn't really appear to have grillz. It's a song), the St. Louis native rapper had a navy hat with an "S" and a Cardinal sitting on a bat. He might have been in St. Louie, but the hat he was sporting was a Springfield Cardinals hat. Is it getting hot in herre? Perhaps. Or maybe it's just excited folks on Twitter reacting to the rapper's hat choice (you don't have to take off all your clothes). Springfield Cardinals fans could watch this video over and over again. Batter up, featuring the Springlunatics. Come on a little bit of uh uh. And a little bit of uh uh. Here comes the boom. No one tweeted about Nelly shaking his tailfeather at the game, so we're going to assume it didn't happen. Is this … [Read more...] about Nelly wore Springfield Cardinals hat to St. Louis Cardinals game. Twitter loved it.
John Fay Cincinnati Enquirer Published 8:55 p.m. UTC Jul 25, 2018 Sal Romano’s short sabbatical from the starting rotation seemed to do him good. Romano went six innings and allowed two runs on seven hits to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 7-3 before a crowd of 20,940 at Great American Ball Park. Especially gratifying for Romano was getting the final two outs of the sixth with the tying run at third base. "I felt stronger," Romano said. "I think the rest helped. Obviously, I was anxious to be able to get out there today. It was good to be able to contribute to the team and get a win." "I'm really proud of the way he battled," Reds manager Jim Riggleman said. The power bats are back for the Reds: Eugenio Suárez, Adam Duvall and Tucker Barnhart accounted for five runs with home runs. The Reds have won two straight series from the Cardinals and five of seven games since losing the first nine of the season series. Romano walked one and struck out five. … [Read more...] about Cincinnati Reds win in Sal Romano’s return, 7-3, take series from the St. Louis Cardinals
John Fay Cincinnati Enquirer Published 10:11 p.m. UTC Jul 23, 2018 Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett was out of the lineup Monday with an illness. “He’s just not feeling that great,” Reds interim manager Jim Riggleman said. “He’s under the weather a little bit. Nothing major. Spoke to him a little earlier in the day and he wasn’t feeling well. Just going to give him the day. If we have to use him in some capacity, we will. But we’re going to try to stay away from him.” Gennett has been dealing with a right shoulder problem for most of the year. That’s not what had him out. “He’s sick,” Riggleman said. “Yeah, I think he’s going to go out and take a few ground balls, throw the ball around a little bit. He’s not feeling at full strength.” Brandon Dixon started at second and hit second in the batting order. The other choice was Dilson Herrera. Why Dixon? “That’s a good … [Read more...] about Scooter under the weather, out of the lineup for the Cincinnati Reds Monday night against the St. Louis Cardinals
