Bobbleheads available Saturdays & Sundays in July

 

The Reds Hall of Fame & Museum presented by Dinsmore continues its 2019 bobblehead program in July, celebrating former outfielder Gus Bell.

Bell played for the Reds for nine seasons from 1953 to 1961 and was a four-time All-Star. During the 1956 season, he hit 29 home runs including three in one game on consecutive at-bats. In addition to his strong bat, Bell was one of the most gifted defensive outfielders of his era, regularly placing among the National League’s leaders in putouts, assists and fewest errors committed.

Bell’s baseball legacy was carried on by his son Buddy and grandsons David and Mike. They are one of only five three-generation families to play in Major League Baseball and the only three-generation family to play for the Reds. Bell was inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame in 1964, and we honor the 55th anniversary of his induction with this exclusive bobblehead.

The bobbleheads are free with regular-price admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum (or a Great American Ball Park tour) beginning Saturday, July 6 at 10 a.m., and will be available Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month of July, while supplies last.

The bobblehead series continues through September with a different Reds legend available each month:

• May: Pat Moran (available only with museum membership)

• June: Joe Nuxhall (available only with museum membership)

• July: Gus Bell

• August: Vada Pinson

• September: Ted Kluszewski

• Member-exclusive George Wright (available with all levels of HOF membership)

Admission to the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum is $12 for adults, $8 for students/seniors, FREE for children 12 and under, courtesy of the H.C.S. Foundation, and FREE for active military/veterans, courtesy of the Sargent Family Foundation.

The best way to ensure a bobblehead is to join the museum as a member. To become a member, please visit RedsMuseum.org for more information or call (513) 765-7926.

Club Sends Minor Leaguers Noelberth Romero and Elio Prado to Baltimore

5:38 PM EDT

BOSTON, MA – The Boston Red Sox today acquired right-handed pitcher Andrew Cashner and cash considerations from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league infielder Noelberth Romero and minor league outfielder Elio Prado.

President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski made the announcement.

The Red Sox’ 40-man roster is now at 40.

Cashner, 32, is 9-3 with a 3.83 ERA (41 ER/96.1 IP) in 17 starts for the Orioles this season. He has thrown at least 7.0 innings in both of his last two starts and at least 6.0 innings in each of his last five, posting a 1.41 ERA (5 ER/32.0 IP) since the start of June.

On the season, Cashner has held left-handed hitters to a .182 batting average, a .499 OPS, and only one home run.

Since the start of April, Cashner has made nine starts against teams that entered today with a winning record. He has posted a 2.75 ERA (16 ER/52.1 IP) in those nine games, including two starts each against the Yankees, Red Sox, and A’s, as well as one start apiece against the Rays, Astros, and Indians. The Texas native has thrown at least 6.0 innings and allowed one run or fewer in each of his last three starts against winning teams, most recently tossing 7.0 scoreless frames on June 29 against Cleveland.

Selected by the Cubs in the first round of the 2008 June Draft out of Texas Christian University, Cashner has gone 55-82 with a 4.00 ERA (508 ER/1,142.1 IP) in 275 major league games (182 starts) with Chicago (2010-11), San Diego (2012-16), Miami (2016), Texas (2017), and Baltimore (2018-19). He has made at least 27 starts in each of the last four seasons, including a career-high 31 in 2016.

Romero, 17, made his professional debut this season with the Rookie-level Dominican Summer League Red Sox2. The right-handed hitter has appeared in 29 games, making 22 starts at third base, five at second base, and two at shortstop. He has batted .264 (29-for-110) with two home runs, drawing 11 walks against 20 strikeouts.

Prado, 17, also made his professional debut this season with the DSL Red Sox2, batting .303 (37-for-122) with three home runs in 33 games.

Crew SC travels to Orlando for tonight’s 7:30 pm matchup

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Crew SC begins faces Orlando on Saturday to begin stretch of three matches in eight days

 

COLUMBUS— Columbus Crew SC (5-13-2, 17 pts.) travels to face Orlando City SC (6-9-4, 22 pts.) at Exploria Stadium tomorrow, Saturday, July 13.The match begins at 7:30 p.m. ET and is set to be televised regionally on FOX Sports Ohio and streamed on FOX Sports GO, featuring Neil Sika, Dwight Burgess and Ashley Collins on the call. Coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET. Tomorrow’s match also airs locally on the radio in English on 97.1 The Fan and streaming online via “Listen Live” at 971TheFan.com, featuring Chris Doran broadcasting the contest. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone. The match against Orlando City SC is the second of two regular-season meetings between the clubs in 2019 and begins a stretch of three matches in eight days for the Crew.

Less than two weeks after Columbus Crew SC’s 2-0 home loss to Orlando City SC, the Black & Gold (5-13-2, 17 pts.), who missed key cogs in June 29 meeting due to international duty, head south to take on an Orlando side that will be competing in its fourth match in 11 days as part of a larger six-match, 19-day stretch.

A win on Saturday would still see Columbus occupying the 11th spot in the Eastern Conference, though it would put the Black & Gold within striking distance of seventh-place Toronto FC, who currently sits just above the red line with 23 points.

Overall, Columbus’ success in Orlando remains even-keeled, as the Black & Gold are 2-2-2 in six regular-season matches at Exploria Stadium with a goal-differential of zero (11 GF, 11 GA). As even as the road fixtures have been, historically speaking, the Crew cannot rest on any defensive laurels as Columbus is one of two teams to concede 10-plus goals at Exploria Stadium.

All-time, Orlando is 29-26-22 at home since joining the League in 2015 and are 3-5-1 in MLS regular-season play at home in 2019, most recently falling 3-1 to the Philadelphia Union on July 3. Additionally, the Lions are on a two-match regular-season losing skid with the inclusion of a 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy on May 24.

Individually, Orlando has four players with at least five goals each, led by early-season acquisition Nani, who leads the team with eight goals and seven assists.

Looking at this season’s scoring, Orlando’s 27 total goals lies in the middle of the pack, while both Orlando and Columbus fall towards the bottom of the League in chances created, with Orlando edging the Crew 159 to 153.

Come Saturday, Columbus eyes restitution as the Black & Gold look to break a four-match losing skid and prevent Orlando from a regular-season sweep for the first time since they joined MLS.

Orlando City won the first meeting on June 29, 2-0 in Columbus goals by Chris Mueller and Tesho Akindele in each half.
