Joey Votto was the offensive star for the Reds, striking a homer and a triple and driving in three runs in his first two at-bats. He later struck out and then walked in the eighth inning, an at-bat that included a pitch very high and inside. It led to some words between Cubs pitcher Rowan Wick and Votto, and even more spillover emotions in the ninth inning. (See news and notes below.)
In the ninth inning, Reds reliever Hunter Strickland picked up his first save, with some help from centerfielder Nick Senzel:


He made a leaping catch as he neared the wall of a well-hit ball off the bat of Willson Contreras with two Cub runners on base. That was the second out, and after a bloop RBI hit by Nico Hoerner, Strickland struck out the impressive Cubs rookie Christopher Morel to end the game and Cincinnati’s two-game losing streak.


Senzel had three very, very nice defensive plays which were critical to the one-run victory.

In the bottom of the second inning, Votto initiated this evening’s Reds scoring:


In the third, the home team tied it on a Tommy Pham single, then went ahead 4-2 on what Redleg Nation regular Mark Moore called “three words that prove we’re living on the edge of the apocalypse” …


“Joey Votto triples.” It was only his second since 2019.
Pham and Matt Reynolds were two-hit performers in this game, along with Votto.

Luis Castillo started very slowly in a 25-pitch first inning in which Mr. Groundhog Day (same thing every day vs. the Reds), Ian Happ, doubled in two runs. But thereafter, Castillo righted the ship and at times looked like vintage Luis. He retired 12 of the final 13 Cubs batters he faced, and Manager David Bell pulled him after the fifth at 94 pitches.


Tony Santillan held the Cubs scoreless in the sixth, despite issuing two walks.
Alexis Diaz continued his impressive work in relief, retiring the side in order in the seventh. For the season, major league hitters are 8-for-69 against him, a .116 average. Of the eight hits, seven are singles. The only extra-base hit was an Eric Hosmer homer.
Art Warren retired Chicago in order in the eighth, and then Bell turned to Hunter Strickland for the final three outs against the 5-6-7 batters in the Cubs order. Strickland got those three outs, interspersed among a walk, a hit-batsman (see below) and the run-scoring hit by Hoerner which drew Chicago within 4-3.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, Cubs reliever Wick threw a pitch very high and tight to Votto, then appeared to utter a profanity at Votto as he took first base. That was followed by this:


That was then followed by Cubs batter Patrick Wisdom being plunked by Strickland with one out in the ninth. Cubs Manager David Ross then started yapping at the home plate umpire, perhaps seeking some action against Strickland, and was ejected.

Chicago Cubs vs Cincinnati RedsMay 26, 2022
By Zigbee

After winning last night’s game, the Cincinnati Reds will try to do the same thing this afternoon and salvage a series split against the Chicago Cubs. Mother Nature, though, could come into play as scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected in the area throughout the afternoon in the area. The Reds are sending Hunter Greene to the mound to match up against Justin Steele. First pitch is set for 12:35pm.

Starting Lineups
Here are the lineups for this afternoon’s NL Central contest:

Starting Pitchers


Pitcher            IP ERA WHIP BB K
Hunter Greene 39.1 5.49 1.48 22 50
Justin Steele   33.0 3.82 1.42 17 38

Hunter Greene

Since his disastrous start in Milwaukee on May 5th when he allowed eight runs on five homers in just 2.2 innings, Hunter Greene has been lights out. In his three starts since that day he’s allowed just four runs in 18.2 innings (1.93 ERA).

On the year, Greene has been rather dominant against left-handed hitters, though he has walked plenty of them. Right-handed hitters, though, have had plenty of success as they’ve hit nine home runs in just 94 trips to the plate against him and are slugging .602.

Splits

Split PA H 2B 3B HR BB K AVG OBP SLG
RHH 94 22 1 0 9 9 24 .265 .340 .602
LHH 85 14 4 0 3 13 26 .194 .318 .375
Pitch Usage

4-Seam Slider Change
Velo 98.6 87.5 89.6
Usage 53.4% 40.8% 5.8%
Justin Steele

The lefty has some strange splits so far this season. Against left-handed hitters he hasn’t allowed an extra-base hit, but they are hitting .290 and they have a .378 on-base percentage. Right-handed hitters aren’t doing a whole lot against him, posting a .600 OPS against him with just one home run against him. That’s been one of the biggest things for Steele this season – he’s simply not allowing any extra-base hits and the opposition has a .299 slugging percentage against him on the year.

Splits

RHH 101 19 3 1 1 11 23 .214 .297 .303
