Reds proving they can win without Votto; beat Brewers, 6-2


The Cincinnati Reds are 4-2 since Joey Votto had to go on the disabled list earlier in the week with a torn knee cartilage.

Each game, a different set of players are leading the team to victory.

In Saturday’s 6-2 win over the slumping, defending NL Central Division champion Milwaukee Brewers, Ryan Ludwick, Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce led the offense. Ludwick and Phillips hit home runs and Bruce had two more hits.

The Reds are 6-2 against the Brewers this season.

They basically put the game away early in the first inning by scoring four runs off losing pitcher Yovani Gallardo, who drops to 8-7 on the season.

The oldest member of the Reds starting pitchers, Bronson Arroyo at 35 years old, rebounded from Monday’s three-inning stint vs. Arizona, a 5-3 loss, by pitching solidly in six innings, allowing two runs on five hits. He’s 5-6 in 2012.

Ludwick’s first-inning homer into the upper deck in left field, made it 74 straight games in Great American Ball Park with a home run. It’s the longest such streak since Coors Field produced 80 games in a row in 2002-03, according to STATS LLC.

Reds beat Milwaukee, 8-4; NL Central lead at 7; Chapman debuts & Votto stars

There were so many positives in Tuesday night’s Reds 8-4 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The Reds now lead the NL Central by 7 games over slumping St. Louis; they won without the services of Brandon Phillips and Jay Bruce; and the Aroldis Chapman’s long-anticpated major league debut.

Cincinnati wrapped up the best August by any team and was able to move 7 games up on the Cardinals, who lost to Houston 3-0. The Reds haven’t led by as many games since 1995, the last time they reached the playoffs.

Joey Votto drove in three runs with a pair of doubles off Milwaukee’s ace pitcher, Yovani Gallardo who drops to 11-7. The slugging first baseman now has 97 on the season. Sam LeCure, another one of the Reds young arms, picked up the win in relief of Aaron Harang, who struggled in his return from back spasms. Le Cure is now 2-4.

The crowd was happy to see Number 54, Aroldis Chapman jogging to the mound from the bullpen to pitch the top of the eighth with the Reds up 8-3.

There was no nervousness from Chapman as the 22-year-old made quick work of the Brewers batters. Jonathan Lucroy saw pitches of 98 mph, 102 and 86 and struck out. Chapman got Craig Counsell and pinch-hitter Carlos Gomez to ground out on weak ground balls. The tall lefty was between 98-102 with all three hitters.


* In order to put Aaron Harang and Aroldis Chapman on the active roster, Cincinnati put outfielder Laynce Nix on the 15-day DL  with a sprained left ankle, which he hurt August 23 in San Francisco.  They optioned right-handed pitcher Edinson Volquez to Class-A Dayton to make at least two starts. They say he has to work out his delivery problems.

MLB ROUNDUP: Reds and Indians


The Cincinnati Reds pounded the Brewers for 19 hits and 12 runs in Miller Park on Tuesday night.

Brandon Phillips, Joey Votto and Scott Rolen all had four hits in a 12-4 win over Milwaukee and their ace pitcher Yovani Gallardo. The win moved the Reds back into a tie for first in the NL Central with St. Louis.

The Reds came into the contest trailing the Cardinals by a game or just percentage points in the standings. But it has been a rare occurance for the Reds to be outside of the top spot in the Central. Since May 16, Cincinnati has spent 51 days in first place or tied for first with St. Louis.

Cincinnati’s top four hitters in the lineup, Phillips, Orlando Cabrera, Votto and Rolen, finished the game at 15-for-22 with eight runs and seven RBI’s as they matched a season-high with 19 hits.


Josh Tomlin, another young pitcher in the Indians farm system that is good, didn’t act like he was afraid to face the New York Yankees hard-hitting lineup led by Alex Rodriguez.

Tomlin was pitching a shutout into the eighth inning and won his major league debut with Cleveland, 4-1 Tuesday night.

Alex Rodriguez went o for 4 on his 35th birthday. That coveted 600th homer can wait another day.

It was a memorable day for the the 25-year-old Tomlin, who outpitched former Indians Cy Young Award winner C.C. Sabathia (13-4), who lost for the first time since May 23.

The right-hander gave up one run on three hits after having his contract purchased from Triple-A Columbus earlier in the day, where he was 8-4 with a2.68 ERA. He walked none and struck out two.

The Brewers have outscored the Pirates 53-4 in their last four meetings, including a three-game sweep in Pittsburgh last week during which the Brewers out scored the Pirates 36-1-including a 20-0 rout on Thursday.

The Pirates have lost seven in a row. And they have lost 22 straight times to Milwaukee at Miller Park and are 12-37 against the Brewers since 2007.

The Brewers’ home winning streak against the Pirates is the longest by one team over another  since the Indians beat the St. Louis Browns/ Baltimore Orioles 27 straight times from 1952-54.

The Pirates held a 30-minute, closed-door meeting after the game.
