Despite 1-0 loss to LA, Reds pitchers have banner day by striking out 20 Dodgers


The Cincinnati Reds lost on Sunday to the LA Dodgers in 11 innings, 1-0.

But the pitching staff did all it could to keep the team in the game and give it a chance to win.

Starting with Tony Cingrani’s 11 strikeouts, Reds’ pitchers racked up a franchise record 20 on the day.

According to published reports, the left-handed Cingrani is the first Reds pitcher to throw at least seven innings with 11 strikeouts with no more than one walk or hit since Johnny Vander Meer in 1941.

The day’s 20th strikeout broke a club record achieved five times, most recently on August 28, 2011, vs. the Washington Nationals. The Dodgers set a Los Angeles club record for strikeouts, with the previous mark being 18 set on May 2, 1995, in a 15-inning loss at their arch-rival San Francisco Giants.

The Cincinnati Reds recalled left-hander Tony Cingrani from their Arizona League affiliate to start on Sunday against the LA Dodgers. To make room on the roster, pitcher Greg Reynolds was designated for assignment.

Cingrani was definitely up to the task as he pitched seven innings, allowing one hit, one walk and struck out 11.

The 28-year-old Reynolds, the former No. 2 overall Draft pick by the Colorado Rockies in 2006, was called up on Tuesday to pitch Game 2 of the doubleheader at San Francisco. In his first big league game since 2011, he allowed five earned runs and eight hits over five innings in a 5-3 loss.

The Pacifica, California native’s future with the Reds will be done if he is claimed by another team.

Because Reynolds is out of options, he will be exposed to waivers over the next 10 days. If he is not claimed or traded, he can return outright to Triple-A Louisville, where he compiled a 10-2 record with a 2.54 ERA.

The Reds would like to keep him in the organization.

Reds bring up 1B Soto, option LHP Cingrani to AAA Louisville

The Cincinnati Reds, always looking for a chance to give their top minor league prospects a chance to get some experience, called up infielder Neftali Soto from Triple-A Louisville on Saturday and optioned lefty starter Tony Cingrani to the Bats.

Soto had a chance to play Saturday afternoon in the Reds’ 10-0 win over the Phillies on national television.

This will be the first big league promotion for the 24-year-old Soto, a third-round Draft pick in 2007 and according to, the Reds’ 14th-best prospect.

In 33 games for Louisville, Soto is batting .269 with three home runs and 16 RBIs.

The 23-year-old lefty pitched well for the Reds. In six starts for Cincinnati, Cingrani was 2-0 with a 3.27 ERA, nine walks and 41 strikeouts.

Cincinnati Reds right-hander Johnny Cueto threw 45 pitches in a bullpen session, his second session off the mound since going on the DL on April 15 due to a strained muscle in his back.

Cueto said he pitched pain-free.

Cueto’s place in the rotation has been taken over by rookie lefty Tony Cingrani, who has been brilliant and is 2-0.

Cueto will heading out to a rehab assignment soon.

Surprise Reds call-up is lefty Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola


Everyone expected the Cincinnati Reds to call-up speedy infielder Billy Hamilton from Pensacola. But that is not going to happen.

But one of his teammates and one of the Reds’ other top prospect pitchers is coming to Cincinnati for September.

The surprise call-up is left-handed pitcher Tony Cingrani from Double-A Pensacola. Cingrani was 10-4 with a 1.73 ERA in 26 games, including 25 starts, for Pensacola and Class A Bakersfield.

Cingrani will essentially be taking the place of lefty Bill Bray in the bullpen.

Bray has made eight rehab appearances for Triple-A Louisville. He allowed three runs and five hits over 1 2/3 innings on Saturday.

Reds manager Dusty Baker says Cingrani will be the  extra lefty in the bullpen, along with Sean Marshall and closer Aroldis Chapman. It also means  Bill Bray might not be back this season.  Bray has been on the disabled list with a back muscle strain since July 31.
