  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Collects three hits

    Fraley went 3-for-4 with a solo homer in Friday's 6-1 loss to the Cubs.

    Fraley tallied three of the Reds' four hits Friday and accounted for the team's only run with a second-inning home run. Since returning from the injured list in July, the 27-year-old outfielder is hitting .297 with 11 homers and 25 RBI through 48 games. He's now gone deep in back-to-back games after a 12-game homerless drought.

  • Reds' Graham Ashcraft: Tagged with six runs

    Ashcraft (5-5) allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks over 2.2 innings Friday, striking out one and taking a loss against the Cubs.

    Ashcraft was charged with three runs in each of the second and third innings during Friday's brutal outing. It was his shortest start since June 30 when he coughed up seven runs in just 2.1 frames. Over his last four starts, Ashcraft has posted an unsightly 6.86 ERA, raising his season number to 4.52 across 18 starts. The 24-year-old righty is expected to face the Cubs at home next week to finish off his rookie campaign.

  • Reds' Donovan Solano: Starting at first base Friday

    Solano (eye) is starting Friday's game against the Cubs.

  • Reds' Justin Dunn: Sharp in rehab start

    Dunn (shoulder) struck out four over three scoreless innings in his rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Louisville. He allowed no hits and issued two walks in the 46-pitch outing.

    According to MLB.com, Reds manager David Bell relayed that Dunn said he felt the best he has at any point this season following Tuesday's rehab appearance, suggesting the right-hander is no longer experiencing any discomfort in his right shoulder. Cincinnati has already set its rotation for the remaining six games of the season, so Dunn will work out of the bullpen once activated from the 15-day injured list. Bell said that Dunn is expected to rejoin the Reds in Chicago over the weekend, so he could be activated at some point during the team's series with the Cubs.

  • Reds' Jake Fraley: Tallies 11th homer

    Fraley went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Fraley earned a start for the second consecutive game, and he took advantage by slugging a game-tying homer in the ninth inning. He now has 11 home runs on the season -- a new career high -- four of which have come in September. Overall, Fraley has a .249/.333/.462 line across 225 plate appearances for the campaign.

  • Reds' Kyle Farmer: Launches 14th homer

    Farmer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Farmer took Chase De Jong deep in the ninth inning for his 14th homer of the season. Six of those long balls have come in September, and Farmer has also tacked on 17 RBI and 10 runs scored for the month. Despite the hot stretch, Farmer still has a pedestrian .255/.315/.390 line across 560 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Reds' Alexis Diaz: Takes loss in extra frame

    Diaz (6-3) allowed an unearned run on one walk and one hit while striking out two across 1.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Pirates.

    Diaz entered the game in the ninth inning and kept the score knotted at 3-3. He remained on the mound for the 10th inning and allowed a soft bloop hit to Kevin Newman to surrender the winning run. Despite the minor setback, Diaz has maintained a 1.80 ERA with a 12:5 K:BB across 10 innings in September. He should remain locked into the closer role in the final week of the season.

  • Reds' Luis Cessa: Turns in quality start

    Cessa allowed three earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two across six innings Wednesday against the Pirates. He did not factor into the decision.

    Cessa turned in his first quality start since shifting from the bullpen to the rotation in late August. He allowed all three of his earned runs in his first two innings of work, but he retired 12 of the last 14 hitters he faced. Cessa has now allowed only five earned runs across his last 15.2 innings of work, though he's backed that with a much less convincing 6:8 K:BB.
