The Cincinnati Reds have added depth to their roster by adding World Series MVP Edgar Renteria as a backup shortstop and left-handed hitting outfielder Fred Lewis as a potential leadoff hitter.

The 34-year-old Renteria, became a free agent after the Giants declined his $9.5 million contract option. His tiebreaking three-run homer off Cliff Lee helped San Francisco win the 2010 World Series.

He decided to play another season because his familiar with Reds general manager Walt Jocketty from their days with the St. Louis Cardinals.

Jocketty says that Paul Janish will come to spring training as the starting shortstop. In 82 games as Orlando Cabrera’s backup last season, he batted .260 in 82 games, with 5 homers and 25 RBI’s.

Lewis batted .262 with Toronto last season, leading the team with 17 steals and 31 doubles which were third-most by an American League leadoff hitter.

The Reds used Cabrera, Brandon Phillips and Drew Stubbs in the leadoff spot in 2010.

NL DIVISION SERIES: Veteran Phillies close out Reds, 2-0; move to NLCS vs. Giants




The young Cincinnati Reds  team, got a lesson in playoff baseball. It’s pitching, defense and clutch hitting.

The Reds pitching was good enough to win Games 2 & 3, but all components have to work in the playoffs.

The Philadelphia Phillies eliminated the Reds, 3 games to 0.

A pitcher the Reds never beat, lefty Cole Hamels, pitched a complete game shutout, with 9 strikeouts, allowing five hits.

Great American Ball Park hosting its first playoff game ever, set a record for attendance, 44,599.

Cincinnati really had just one chance to score in the game against Hamels. Drew Stubbs led off the first inning with an infield single, and Brandon Phillips came up next and hit a line drive to left-centerfield. Speedy center fielder Shane Victorino ran the ball down in the gap. If he misses that ball, it’s at least a triple or even an inside-the-park home run with Phillips’ speed.

The Phillies scored in the first inning against Reds starter Johnny Cueto, who was victimized by shoddy defense. With one out, Placido Polanco singled to center, Ryan Howard singled to left and with two down Jayson Werth hit an easy third-out grounder to shortstop Orlando Cabrera, who threw high to first base, pulling Joey Votto off the bag scoring Polanco to give the Phillies a 1-0 lead.

Two topics of conversation was brought up in the pressbox at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati after that play. One, the Reds were in trouble because they have trouble scoring against Cole Hamels all the time and second of all, why was Orlando Cabrera playing shortstop with a right oblique problem. Backup shortstop Paul Janish was in the starting lineup on the game sheets but somehow Cabrera talked himself into the lineup. Bad choice.

The final run came in the top of the fifth inning when Phillies second baseman Chase Utley homered to right-center field into the first row of seats to make it 2-0. The play was reviewed by the umpires because a fan had reached out and caught the ball as Reds center fielder Drew Stubbs was making a play on the ball. The umpires deemed it a homer and not a ground rule double. The delay lasted for 1 minute, 13 seconds.

That was Utley’s 10th playoff series home run of all-time, which moves him past Jayson Werth for first on the Phillies list.

The Reds were making their first playoff appearance in 15 years and finished the regular season as the National League’s Number 1 offense and Number 2 defensive team. During the playoffs, they committed 8 errors, 6 in the last two games which simply killed them.

The National League Central Division, which the Reds were the champions of in 2010, has not done well in the playoffs losing 15 of their last 16 games.

The Philadelphia Phillies will be seeking their third straight NL Pennant when they face the San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship Series.


* The Phillies are 10-2 all-time in clinching games (games in which the series ends with a Phillies win). The Phillies have won their last 6.

* Philadelphia is 4-0 on the road in the postseason when Cole Hamels pitches (4-3 at home).

* Cole Hamels joins Roy Halladay and Curt Schilling as the only 3 pitchers to throw a shutout in the Phillies postseason history.

* This was the first ever postseason series sweep in Phillies franchise history.

* In Cincinnati Reds postseason history, they have been swept 4 times, 1939 World Series vs. the Yankees; 1979 NLCS vs. the Pirates; 1995 NLCS vs. the Braves and now the 2010 NLDS vs. the Phillies.

Phillips’ 441-foot homer powers Reds past Houston, 9-1; Stubbs & Gomes get in homer act

Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips hit one of Cincinnati’s three home runs and drove in three runs, leading the NL Central Division champion Reds to a 9-1 romp over the Houston Astros and their top pitcher, Brett Myers.

2B Brandon Phillips (

The win allows the Reds to stay alive in the race for second place for home field advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Phillips blasted a 441-foot homer into the left field upper deck seats, the sixth time he has reached that level in his career.

CF Drew Stubbs (

Phillips’ two-run shot and Jonny Gomes’ solo shot in the sixth inning, knocked Myers out of the game before completing the sixth inning for the first time this season.

Myers pitched 5 2/3 innings on Thursday, had lasted six or more innings in each of the previous 32 starts which makes him only the fifth major league pitcher since 1920 to last that long in his first 32 starts in a season and the first since Curt Schilling of Arizona, who went six or more in his first 35 starts of the 2002 season.

Myers ends the season at 14-8. But since June , he was 9-1 in 16 starts.

Drew Stubbs homered and drove in four runs, Jonny Gomes homered to back Bronson Arroyo’s seven solid innings of pitching.

LF Jonny Gomes (MLB)

Arroyo finished the season at 17-10. He bested his previous career-high of 15 wins as a Red. Arroyo retired the last 13 batters after giving up the sixth homer of the year to former Red Jeff Keppinger in the third inning. He gave up four hits and no walks with four strikeouts.

The Reds will finish the season with a winning record against every Central Division opponent except St. Louis.
