Reds P Mike Leake throws eight shutout innings in win
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Reds pitcher Mike Leake had an exceptional game Thursday night in his team's 5-1 win over the Braves.
Leake went eight innings and only gave up two hits in 97 pitches. He struck out three batters and walked two. He now has an ERA of 3.03. This was easily Leake's best game of his season so far as it was the first he didn't allow an earned run in.
"[Leake] was terrific," manager Bryan Price said after the game, per MLB.com. "He was locked in. He has a really good rapport with Tucker (Barnhart). He worked really quickly and attacked the zone. It's a nice lineup. They mix and match so well with players who have had success against Michael, and he pitched a dandy."
On the offensive side of things, Leake hit a solo home run in the seventh inning, his first of the season.
Leake is now 1-1 for the season.
Leake is projected to make his next start on May 6 against the Pirates.

Lorenzen will be making his major-league debut Wednesday. He's 2-1 with a 2.84 ERA and 12:4 K:BB ratio in 19 innings over three Triple-A starts.
Leake has tossed at least seven innings in three straight starts and owns a 3.90 ERA and 22:8 K:BB ratio in 27 2/3 innings over four starts this season. Lorenzen
Reds SP Mike Leake gives up three runs in seven IP for no-decision

Reds never approached Mike Leake about a new deal in offseason
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Reds starter Mike Leake felt bit hurt that he was never approached by Cincinnati about a new deal, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports Friday.
Leake, who is on his contract year, allowed two earned runs over eight strong innings on Sunday. Although he's been a useful option in the rotation since 2010, the higher-ups in Cincinnati only view him as a No. 3 or 4 starter. The 27-year-old right-hander is 0-1 with a 3.92 ERA, a 1.11 WHIP and a 13:7 K:BB ratio over three starts (20 2/3 innings).
Reds starter Mike Leake a hard-luck loser on Sunday night
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/19/15) Reds starter Mike Leake (0-1) was the hard-luck loser on Sunday versus the Cardinals, allowing two runs on four hits in eight innings.
Leake gave up a leadoff homer to Matt Carpenter and then surrendered the eventual winning run in the eighth inning on an RBI sacrifice fly to Kolten Wong.
"Basically the same pitch that [Jay] hit for the double," Leake said of his pitch to Carpenter. "Just a fastball that was supposed to be in. It just went back over the plate for him to hit. They both made me pay."
Leake will try again for his first win of 2015 Friday against the Cubs.
|2014 summary: Mike Leakedidn't become a radically different pitcher but showed improvements around the margins, even if they didn't show in his 11-13 record and 3.70 ERA for the Reds. The most impactful change for Leake was efficiency, as he made a career-high 33 starts covering 214 1/3 innings. The additional workload plus a higher strikeout rate (6.9 K/9, as compared to 5.7 in 2013) enabled Leake to strike out 164 batters, shattering his previous personal best by 42. For the first time, Leake profiled as a true ground ball pitcher, inducing grounders on 55 percent of hit balls.
Playing time status: With Mat Latos and Homer Bailey all missing significant time with injuries, Leake picked up much of the slack. Latos is gone for good now, as is Alfredo Simon, so Leake may get another shot to break 200 innings.
2015 outlook: Though Leake improved last season, he didn't do so to the degree that standard mixed league owners can trust him as more than a streaming option. Unless you play in a mixed league that has 15 teams or more, you can ignore Leake on draft day.
