The Cubs went on a home run binge in the fourth inning on Thursday at Wrigley Field, with a leadoff homer by Kris Bryant and then back to back to back jacks against the Reds’ Scott Feldman, but it wasn’t enough as they lost, 13-10.
After four innings Thursday night at PNC Park, the Cardinals trailed by three runs. Then came the rain and the runs. The Cards rallied for two runs before 72-minute rain delay, scored three more in the seventh inning and added four more in the ninth, sailing to an 11-7 win over the Pirates at PNC […]
Unable to will his arm to loosen enough to allow the pitches to come freely and the velocity to rise, Adam Wainwright endured another early exit in Thursday’s 11-7 win over the Pirates and now awaits a coming exam that will determine when he may throw his next meaningful pitch. Wainwright will return to St. […]
When the Reds come to SunTrust Park to begin a three-game series against the Braves on Friday night, they will reunite with Brandon Phillips and get their first up-close look at him playing third base. The four-time National League Gold Glove Award winner established himself as one of the game’s best defensive second basemen while […]
The Cubs belted six home runs, including back-to-back-to-back jacks in the fourth inning, to erase a nine-run deficit, but the Reds reclaimed the lead on rookie Phillip Ervin’s tie-breaking, two-run homer in the seventh to secure a crazy 13-10 victory on Thursday at Wrigley Field that split the four-game series.
It was pretty clear pretty quickly that Reds starting pitcher Scott Feldman was laboring on his balky right knee. Feldman’s fastball velocity often sat in the low 80s on Thursday at Wrigley Field, and he couldn’t get to first base to cover the bag on a grounder in the second inning.
Heading into Wednesday night, Reds rookie outfielder Phillip Ervin had three call ups and no hits in the big leagues on his resume. In less than 24 hours, Ervin’s statistical line dramatically changed.
With Francisco Cervelli unable to start Thursday night at PNC Park, the Pirates placed the veteran catcher on the disabled list due to left wrist inflammation and recalled infielder Max Moroff from Triple-A Indianapolis to reshape their bench.

Cubs left-handed starting pitcher Jon Lester has been predictably tough vs. lefty hitters this season, but he could have a showdown on his hands with Reds first baseman Joey Votto when the four-game series concludes Thursday afternoon at Wrigley Field.
The Cubs held Joey Votto to a first-inning single on Wednesday night, ending the Reds’ sluggers’ streak of reaching base at least twice in a game at 20, one short of the record Williams set in 1948. But at age 33, with his status as one of the best (and smartest) hitters of his generation […]
