It was a Reds road trip that will be remembered for bullpen breakdowns, walk-off losses and even a postponement caused by a water-main break. Wednesday's conclusion brought something that hasn't happened often: a misstep by Johnny Cueto.
Reds catcher Devin Mesoraco is mired in the longest hitless stretch of his career at 0-for-20, and he hasn't homered since Aug. 10. Mesoraco is playing almost every day for the first time in his career at the Major League level, but manager Bryan Price didn't sense that he was wearing down.
For the fourth straight game, the Reds lost because of their opponent's final at-bat. J.J. Hoover hit Jon Jay with a pitch with the bases loaded to make it a walk-off loss in three of those four games -- albeit an uncanny one -- as the Cardinals took a 5-4 victory at Busch Stadium.
Utility man Kristopher Negron has been one of the more productive hitters among the often offensively struggling Reds. But with Brandon Phillips back from the disabled list, playing time for Negron will come less often.
For the second straight night, the Braves scored three late runs to take down the Blue Wahoos 6-2 at Trustmark Park in Pearl, Miss. Rich Poythress doubled home two in the eighth to put the game out of reach, before later scoring on a sac fly to give the Braves a four-run lead.
Ben Lively (L, 0-5) was solid in the series opener against the Mississippi Braves on Saturday night at Trustmark Park, but he was still unable to earn his first Double-A win. The Braves put the game out of reach with a three-run seventh inning to snap Pensacola's four-game winning streak with a 6-2 win over the Blue Wahoos.
Phillip Ervin collected three different two-out, run-scoring singles and Nick Travieso became the top winner in Dayton Dragons history as the Dragons defeated the South Bend Silver Hawks 5-3 on Wednesday night.
Cincinnati Reds all-star Brandon Phillips delivered a single and double for the Dayton Dragons but it was not enough to overcome a 16-hit attack for the Bowling Green Hot Rods as they avoided a sweep of a three-game series and defeated the Dragons 10-4 on Sunday afternoon.

With the Cincinnati Reds hard at work in Arizona, Homer decided to dust of his kickball and start getting ready for the Mustangs home opener at Dehler Park on June 20. The Reds have 22 former Billings Mustangs in Spring Training vying for a spot on the Opening Day roster. While Homer didn't make the trip south, he has been hard at work getting ready for […]
Backed by seven scoreless innings from Lance Lynn and three RBIs from Jhonny Peralta, the Cardinals swept the Reds with a 7-3 victory on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium. St. Louis won for the seventh time in eight games and gained a game on the Brewers.
Pat Neshek, an avid baseball card and memorabilia collector, received a Babe Ruth autographed baseball from John Lackey on Wednesday as a reward for giving up his No. 41 when Lackey arrived at the Trade Deadline.
The Giants' protest of Tuesday's rain-shortened game was upheld, becoming the first protest overturned by Major League Baseball since 1986. The game will resume at 4:05 p.m. CT on Thursday prior to the series finale, scheduled for 7:05.
There had been successful pitchers from Texas from baseball's earliest days, but right-hander Nolan Ryan from tiny Alvin became the archetype. Talented. Strong but silent. Rawhide tough. All traits backed up by 324 wins, 5,714 strikeouts, seven no-hitters and induction into the Hall of Fame in 1999.
Residing five games back in the American League Wild Card race, the Yankees are facing a sweep at the hands of the Astros in Thursday's matinee finale in the Bronx. New York will start Brandon McCarthy against Houston's Dallas Keuchel.
The Astros batted around in the seventh inning on the strength of a leadoff walk and five consecutive singles after one out to rally for four runs and clinch the season series against the Yankees with a 5-2 win at Yankee Stadium.
Astros manager Bo Porter grew up nearby on the rough-and-tumble streets of Newark, N.J., and was a three-sport athlete at Weequahic High School. Raised by a single mother, Porter -- unlike many of his high school teammates -- managed to avoid the crime and drug problems that derailed the sports careers of many of his friends.
Derek Jeter still gives Astros third-base coach Pat Listach a hard time about it to this day. Take a close look at the 1996 Yankees team photo and you'll see Listach in the picture along with a fresh-faced Jeter and Andy Pettitte, Wade Boggs and Tino Martinez, among others. The Yankees won the World Series that year, but Listach doesn't have any fo […]
Gerrit Cole's first start since Independence Day originally looked like it may go the route of his teammates in the first two games against the hot-hitting Braves. But he settled in, retired 12 consecutive hitters at one point and put his team in a position to snap its seven-game losing streak in Wednesday night's 3-2 win.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez gained a potentially important out when he successfully challenged Angel Hernandez's call on a pickoff move during the first inning of Wednesday's game against the Pirates at PNC Park.
As recently as Aug. 7, the Pirates were breathing down the Brewers' necks, sitting a single game behind them in the National League Central and looking ready to take over at any moment. But a seven-game losing streak has put some serious space between the two contenders, and this weekend's series in Milwaukee could be pivotal for Pittsburgh's […]
