Luis Castillo surrendered four runs in six innings and struck out seven Thursday in a loss to the Diamondbacks.

The first inning started with a walk, a double and a three-run homer from Jake Lamb. Castillo was pretty great the rest of the way, allowing no more walks and just two more hits, but the damage was already done.

Eugenio Suarez was responsible for both Reds runs by hitting two solo homers Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Suarez, who also walked in the contest, had as many homers today as in the previous month combined. He was one of the NL's better regulars through two months, but he's been well below average since. The Reds would be happy to see him get hot again.

Zack Cozart is absent from the Reds' starting lineup Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

Cozart went 4-for-6 with a home run in Wednesday night's win over Arizona, but Jose Peraza will get the start at shortstop in Thursday afternoon's series finale. Scooter Gennett is at second base.

Zack Cozart went 4-for-6 with a home run and two RBI in an extra-inning, 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He started things off with an RBI single in the first inning and busted a solo home run in the third frame off starter Zack Greinke. The veteran shortstop has always been a wizard in the field but this is the first season he has excelled at the dish. He was the National League starter at shortstop in his first All Star game last week. He is a free agent at the end of this season and is a prime candidate to be traded before the end of the month. He is batting .321/.400/.566 with 11 home runs, 38 RBI and 45 runs scored in 70 games.

Michael Lorenzen pitched two shutout innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday and was credited with the win for his efforts.

He worked the 10th and 11th innings and did not allow a hit. He notched two strikeouts and issued one base-on-balls. The former starter has seen his stuff improve after being moved to the bullpen. He is now 5-2 with a 3.83 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He's generated 45 strikeouts and 22 walks in 49 1/3 innings.
Jul 20 - 1:18 AM

Billy Hamilton went 3-for-6 with two runs scored and a stolen base in a win over the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He reached base on an infield single in the first inning, stole second and scored on a Zack Cozart single. He singled again in the third inning and was caught trying to steal another base right before a Cozart home run. He singled yet again in the bottom of the 11th and ended up scoring the winning run on an Adam Duvall single to right. Hamilton has been hot of late, boosting his line to .253/.304/.335 with two home runs and 23 RBI. He has scored 59 runs and leads the majors with 40 stolen bases.
Jul 20 - 1:16 AM

Tim Adleman struck out seven batters while allowing three runs in six innings against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

He surrendered seven base hits without issuing a walk in the quality start. The 29-year-old second-year player has been a serviceable innings-eater for the Reds' devastated starting rotation this year. He has a 5-7 record with a 4.96 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 17 starts and one relief appearance. He lines up for starts against the Indians and Marlins next week.

Reds activated C Devin Mesoraco from the 10-day disabled list.

Mesoraco is back on the Reds' active roster after missing two weeks with a sprained left shoulder. He will not start Wednesday night against the Diamondbacks.
Jul 19 - 3:18 PM

Reds optioned RHP Lisalverto Bonilla to Triple-A Louisville.

Bonilla has an ugly 7.94 ERA and and 1.71 WHIP in 34 innings (four starts, five relief appearances) this season for Cincinnati. Devin Mesoraco has been activated off the disabled list in a corresponding roster move.
Jul 19 - 3:16 PM

Zack Cozart went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and two runs scored in Tuesday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Cozart went 3-for-5 with a pair of extra-base hits, including a first-inning solo dinger off Diamondbacks starter Robbie Ray, and two runs scored; the rest of his Reds teammates went 3-for-27 with a pair of extra-base hits, including no homers, and zero runs scored. It was another day at the office for the 31-year-old, who's now hitting .313/.395/.548 overall. Cozart is sure to remain a name floated in trade rumors in the coming weeks, even if the Reds don't end up dealing him.
Jul 19 - 1:51 AM

Sal Romano allowed six runs over four innings in a loss to the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Everybody loved Romano's part in Tuesday's Ray Barone-themed pitching matchup, but the Reds certainly didn't love the 23-year-old's performance on the field quite as much. Romano, making his third major league start, walked five and allowed six hits before exiting. He now owns a 7.50 ERA and 2.08 WHIP through those three starts. With the Reds going nowhere fast and Scott Feldman out, Romano may get another turn to prove he's more than just a punchline. That shot should come Sunday against the Marlins.
Jul 19 - 1:38 AM

Reds recalled RHP Lisalverto Bonilla from Triple-A Louisville.

Bonilla holds a 7.59 ERA over four starts and four relief appearances with the big club this season. He'll be used in long relief.
Jul 18 - 11:09 AM

Reds recalled RHP Sal Romano from Triple-A Louisville.

Romano will start Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. He's posted a 4.50 ERA over two starts for the Reds this season and could stick around a while this time with Scott Feldman (knee) sidelined.
Jul 18 - 11:08 AM

Reds optioned OF Jesse Winker to Triple-A Louisville.

Winker once again hardly played in his most recent stint with the big club. He'll return to a .305/.386/.391 line at Louisville.
Jul 18 - 11:04 AM

Reds placed RHP Scott Feldman on the 10-day disabled list with right knee inflammation.

Feldman has been bothered by the knee issue throughout the season, but the discomfort became too much during his start Monday. It's unclear how long he'll be out. Feldman had been looking like a potential trade chip for the Reds, and it's possible he could clear waivers and be dealt in August.
