|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(7/22/15) Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover was given a two-run lead in the ninth inning of Tuesday's game against the Cubs, but he could not close the door.
Hoover gave up a two-run home run to Kyle Schwarber, which tied the game. The Reds would lose 5-4 in 13 innings. It was his second blown save of the season.
Reds RP J.J. Hoover notches first save of the season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(6/24/15) Reds relief pitcher J.J. Hoover recorded his first save of the season in Wednesday's win over the Pirates.
Hoover needed just 14 pitches to close out the ninth inning in the 5-2 win. He struck out two of the three batters he faced and didn't allow a hit.
Hoover (5-0) has a 1.39 ERA with 24 strikeouts and 13 walks in 32 1/3 innings this season. He's the only Reds player other than closer Aroldis Chapman, who hasn't pitched since returning from paternity leave earlier this week, to record a save this season.
Offseason work paying early dividends for Reds' J.J. Hoover
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Reds pitcher J.J. Hoover struggled in 2014, going 1-10 with a 4.88 ERA, but he focused on turning things around this offseason and has seen early returns on his work, opening the season with wins in his first two appearances, MLB.com reports.
"Last year, unfortunately, I was not executing pitches as well as I am this year," Hoover said. "That is what I was working on all last season. That is what I worked on all offseason -- pretty much the basics."
Hoover recorded 10 straight losses last season, setting a franchise record for relievers.
"He had similar stuff, his velocity was the same, his curveball was the same, but the location of his mix of pitches, and particularly his fastball, was really a step backwards last year," manager Bryan Price said.
Hoover has yet to allow a run in 3 1/3 innings this season while striking out four and walking none.

Hoover struck out three of the five batters he faced and allowed one hit.
Aroldis Chapman struck out two in the ninth to earn his second save of the season.
Chapman hit 101 mph in the ninth and saved his 115th career game, an MLB record for Cuban pitchers.
