Game 157: Cubs at Reds

  

A note about no-hitters

As I type this, Tucker Barnhart only moments ago hit a single in the eighth inning to break up Max Scherzer’s bid at his second no-hitter this season.

From the Reds media relations department: 
In their 5-0 loss to Cole Hamels and the Phillies on 7/25 at Wrigley Field the Cubs were no-hit for the first time since Sandy Koufax’ perfect game on 9/9/65, snapping Chi’s streak of 7,920 games with at least 1 hit…was the longest streak of consecutive regular season games without being the victim of a no-hitter for any team in modern Major League history.

The longest active regular season streak now belongs to the Reds, who have gone 7,088 games since Phi’s Rick Wise threw a no-hitter in a 4-0 win on 6/23/71 at Riverfront Stadium…

Roy Halladay did throw a no-hitter in a 4-0 win vs Cin at Phi’s Citizens Bank Park in Game 1 of the 2010 National League Division Series.

Frazier reflects on Yogi Berra

Reds third baseman and New Jersey native Todd Frazier got to meet Yogi Berra as a 12-year-old kid. Frazier went to the Yogi Berra Museum in Montclair, N.J., with his Toms River team after it won the 1998 Little League World Series. Berra also lived much of his life in New Jersey.

Late Tuesday night, the Yankees great and Hall of Fame catcher died at the age of 90 of natural causes.

“He signed everybody’s ball, anything you had. He was very gracious,” Frazier said on Wednesday. “He was one of the best catchers that ever played this game. He stuck to his roots. He’s a guy you could look up to for sure. He loved the Yankees. He had a passion for the game that you can’t not look up to a guy like that. It’s a sad day for baseball, especially in New York. They had a lot of fans that really enjoyed listening to his quirky sayings. He’s a good guy. God rest his soul.”

Lorenzen available from bullpen

After he made his expected final start of 2015 on Wednesday at San Francisco, Michael Lorenzen is now rested and ready for use out of the bullpen. But manager Bryan Price didn’t rule out entirely that Lorenzen could get another start if there is a shortage of arms.

Lorenzen has pitched 151 2/3 innings this season, combined, at Triple-A and the Majors. His limit was 150-155 innings.

“With the rotation being what it is, if for some reason one of these guys can’t start, then maybe Lorenzen is back in there,” Price said on Monday. “If we go over his innings goal by 5-10 or 12 innings, that’s just baseball. I don’t think he’s going to break because we set a soft ceiling and he exceeds that. He’s really our next line as a starter if we have any other issues with our current starting five.”
