#Reds change batting order (May 9, 2014)


Cincinnati Reds have changed things up for the first game against Colorado Rockies. Switch hitting Catcher Brayan Pena will bat 2nd, with 1B Joey Votto batting 4th. I am very happy to see RF Chris Heisey and SS Zack Cozart batting down in the order. I have included the hitters career BA in that spot in the batting order. I think Brayan Pena is going to have a big game along with Joey Votto.

1. CF Skip Schumaker .291
2. C Brayan Pena .200
3. 2B Brandon Phillips .275
4. 1B Joey Votto .309
5. 3B Todd Frazier .271
6. LF Ryan Ludwick .264
7. RF Chris Heisey .250
8. SS Zack Cozart .248
9. P Johnny Cueto .101

The Green Monster got the best of the #Reds in game one


Cincinnati Reds lost in extra innings tonight to Boston Red Sox when LF Grady Sizemore (3 for 6) hit a ball off the Green Monster, scoring DH David Ortiz. (2 for 4)

Reds RHP Homer Bailey went 6 innings giving up 5 hits, 3 earned runs with 5 walks and 5 strike outs. J.J. Hoover then came in and pitched 1.1 IP giving up only one hit and striking out one. Manny Parra came in for 1 IP and struck out two. Sam LeCure pitched 1.2 IP and walked two and gave up one hit. The Logan Ondrusek came in for 1 IP and gave up four hits with one run getting the loss in the 12th inning.

It was a great game and at some points in the game it looked liked the Red Sox were out playing the Reds but they just kept getting the plays needed to keep in it. This game could have gone either way, even with SS Zach Cozart (2 for 5) not running in the 9th inning off a bunt hit by RF Chris Heisey. (1 for 6)

Heisey and Frazier use the force! #Reds win 4-3 over #Brewers in the 10th


Cincinnati Reds 3B Todd Frazier hit a 92 MPH fastball from Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher Tyler Thornburg to score RF Chris Heisey to win the game in the 10th inning. This was another great game to watch and it is very nice to see all of the seats full for home games. I would say the Star Wars weekend went very well for the Reds and they should do more theme weekends if it helps the club win ball games.

C Brayan Pena hit another home run tonight and it was a bomb! He now has 3 home runs for the Reds this season and will soon break his season high of 6 which he hit in 2009 for the Kansas City Royals. Pena only has about 20 home runs in his whole career. Playing in Great American Ball Park will really help him this season with the long ball. Hopefully that does not take anything away from his swing and he still hits a .290+ BA. Another plus to him getting playing time is, RHP Johnny Cueto really seems to like him as a catcher and has thrown the ball very well.

#Reds use the fourth, with Chris Heisey


Cincinnati Reds OF Chris Heisey is batting 4th today due to the late lineup scratch of RF Jay Bruce. Heisey has batted 4th in the lineup in 13 games, 2 of them starts. In 24 PA he has 3 hits, 1 run, 1 HR and 2 RBI with 2 BB and 6 SO giving him a .150 BA, .261 OBP, .300 SLG and a .561 OPS. Some people love him, some hate him and some really don’t care but I think we all can agree having him bat fourth in the lineup today is just crazy, especially after he just came off an 0 for 4 game batting first yesterday. I think manager Bryan Price is hoping he will come up big for the team today and many will say 13 games is way to small of a sample size to judge how well Heisey will do today. I hope they are right and he comes up big for the Reds today. Since it is Star Wars weekend at Great American Ball Park maybe Heisey will use the Force and hit some home runs!

#Reds RF Jay Bruce late scratch (Knee)


Cincinnati Reds RF Jay Bruce was a late scratch in the lineup today against Milwaukee Brewers due to knee soreness. Chris Heisey will take his place in the lineup and hopefully will get at least one hit this game.

Reds go home with the win


Cincinnati Reds won today against San Diego Padres (4-1) at PetCo Park in a much-needed win for the Reds. Homer Bailey was pitching great and went 8.1 innings allowing 6 hits, 1 run getting 7 strike outs. He has really become a great pitcher to watch now. Aroldis Chapman pitched 0.2 innings to get his 25th save.

Homer Bailey

Derrick Robinson went 1 for 4 with 1 run, 1 walk and 1 strike out. He layed down a few very nice bunts in this game and so did Zack Cozart who went 2 for 4 with 1 run and 1 strike out. Cozart batted 7th in the batting order while Robinson batted number 1 again. Chris Heisey went 2 for 5 with 1 run and 1 RBI. Joey Votto went 1 for 4 with 2 RBI while Brandon Phillips went 3 for 5 with a home run. Jay Bruce went 1 for 4 and Todd Frazier continues to slump by going 0 for 4 with 2 strike outs. Corky Miller went 1 for 3 and is always a great player to watch play behind the plate. I still think he will be the manager of the Reds one day. Or should I say, I hope he is the manager of the Reds one day? Either way I really would like to see him manage at the pro level later in his life.

Brandon Phillips gets a home run

Todd Frazier has not got a hit since July 25 when he went 2 for 4 against Los Angeles Dodgers. He went 0 for 4 with 2 SO July 31. 0 for 4 vs. Padres on July 30. 0 for 3 on July 29 vs. Padres. O for 3 vs. Dodgers on July 28. 0 for 3, July 27 and O for 3 on July 26 vs. the Dodgers. So he went 2 for 24 against Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres in 7 games. Vs. San Francisco Giants the series before he went 8 for 17 with 6 RBI. He is due to come out of the slump and starting hitting again.

Todd Frazier needs a hit
