Cincinnati Reds Baseball News and Notes

Freel apologizes to Reds, fans


Cox News Service

Thursday, April 07, 2005

CINCINNATI Ryan Freel, standing in front of cameras and tape recorders Wednesday, made a passionate plea to Cincinnati Reds fans. He sincerely begged for forgiveness.

Freel was arrested for drunken driving Monday night, appeared in Campbell County (Ky.) court Wednesday morning and has another appearance in May.

After facing the media before Wednesday's game, Freel apologized to his teammates in the post-batting practice clubhouse meeting.

"My heart goes out to the fans of Cincinnati," he said. "Those are people who have believed in Ryan Freel. I've worked my tail off to be where I am as a baseball player and a man who can reach out to the community. I'm hoping they'll find it in their hearts to forgive me.

"I'm deeply sorry for what happened," he added. "It's sad and I'm devastated. Whatever happens, I'll be a man and stand up for what happens. I apologize to the fans from the bottom of my heart and my main concern is for the fans and kids here because they mean everything in the world to me."

Under advice from counsel, Freel couldn't address details of the circumstances that led to his arrest, but he did plead not guilty at his arraignment Wednesday.

"My main concern is that I have been accepted by the community and I don't know if I'll be looked at the same way I was," he said. "If it wasn't for the fans and the kids, we wouldn't have jobs."

Bagwell blast powers Astros past Reds to complete sweep

April 10, 2005

CBS SportsLine.com wire reports

HOUSTON -- The Cincinnati Reds came to Houston unbeaten and hopeful about their chances to turn around a suddenly lopsided rivalry with the Astros.

Three straight losses proved that little has changed for the Reds, at least in this NL Central matchup.

Jeff Bagwell hit a tiebreaking two-run homer and Roy Oswalt pitched seven strong innings to lead the Astros to their fourth straight win, 5-2 over Cincinnati on Sunday.

"We would have liked to have had a better showing here," said Reds slugger Adam Dunn, who went 1-for-4. "But it's not the end of the world. We just couldn't get the big hit at the right time, like we did the series before."

Bagwell homered in the fifth to give Houston a 4-2 lead and Morgan Ensberg followed with a solo shot for the Astros, who won their series-record 11th consecutive game -- eight last season -- against Cincinnati. Houston won 10 straight against their longtime division rival in 2003.

"I don't know what happens," Astros manager Phil Garner said of his club's streak against the Reds. "It's just a strange thing."

Russ Springer pitched a hitless eighth and Brad Lidge got the three outs for his third save in the last four games.

After a poor start in an opening day loss to St. Louis, Oswalt (1-1) rebounded with another dominating effort against the Reds. Oswalt limited Cincinnati to two runs on five hits, but walked five and struck out only two.

"I was a little wild ... but I felt I made some good pitches when I had to," Oswalt said. "Call it effectively wild. I was just wild enough that they couldn't concentrate. Sometimes when you're wild it helps you."

He improved to 12-0 in 16 career appearances -- 14 starts -- against the Reds. Only Pedro Martinez (13-0 against Seattle) has won more games against one team without a loss.

"I hope it's not a fluke," Oswalt said. "I hope it keeps going."

Pitching on three days' rest and battling the flu, Eric Milton couldn't prevent the Reds' third straight loss following a season-opening three-game sweep of the New York Mets.

Milton, who led the NL with 43 homers allowed in 2004, gave up three Sunday, including a solo shot to Craig Biggio in the first.

Cincinnati's new lefty lasted only 4 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits with two strikeouts and one walk. Milton dropped to 0-3 in four career starts on short rest.

"I was weak, but my arm felt fine," Milton said. "I may have just hit a wall there in the fifth. I didn't have a lot of gas left ... it just wasn't there today."

The Reds couldn't hold an early lead against Houston -- same as Saturday when the Astros rallied from a 3-0 deficit.

Wily Mo Pena tied the game at 1-all in the second, sending an Oswalt fastball into deep left, a 408-foot shot that bounced off the replica 1860 railroad tracks atop a 58-foot wall.

Dunn added a run-scoring triple off the right-field wall in the fourth, giving the Reds a 2-1 lead.

But Astros rookie Chris Burke scored on Willy Taveras' sacrifice fly to center in the bottom of the inning, and Houston went ahead for good in the fifth on homers by Bagwell and Ensberg.

"They came up with the big hits and we didn't," Reds manager Dave Miley said. "We just couldn't get over the hump."

Biggio went 3-for-4 with a double and the homer. He also stole third base in the seventh, making him the sixth player in league history with 100 career steals of third.

Burke, making his first start in the majors, also finished 3-for-4.

Cincinnati continues its grueling road trip Tuesday with two games against NL defending champ St. Louis. The Astros, meanwhile, head to New York for a three-game series against the 1-5 Mets, starting Monday.

It will be Houston's first time facing Carlos Beltran since he left for the Mets in free agency this offseason
