|Tony Cingrani bounces back to earn first win |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/13/14) Reds starting pitcher Tony Cingrani bounced back from a loss Monday at St. Louis to lead Cincinnati to a 12-4 win Sunday vs. Tampa Bay. Cingrani allowed two runs on five hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings, while striking out six.
Cingrani (1-1) got off to a great start Sunday, retiring the first six batters he faced. He held a 2-0 lead before Ben Zobrist tied the game with a two-out, two-run homer in the top of the third inning.
However, those were the only runs Tampa Bay mustered off the left-handed hurler, who stranded two runners in the fifth inning and worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the sixth inning.
Cingrani, who has a 2.60 ERA, is expected to make his next start Saturday against the Cubs.

It was a marked departure from Cingrani's debut, when he gave up just two hits in seven scoreless innings while striking out nine. All three runs surrendered came in the first inning Monday. Cingrani (0-1) is slated to take on the Rays Sunday.

(4/3/14) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani was excellent in his season debut Wednesday, giving up just two hits and two walks in seven scoreless innings while striking out nine in his team's 1-0 win over the Cardinals.
Despite the fantastic line, Cingrani didn't factor into the decision, as the only run of the game was scored in the ninth inning. Cingrani will look for a repeat performance against the same opponent Monday.
|Tony Cingrani comes on strong Thursday against Arizona |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/27/14) Reds promising starter Tony Cingrani finished his spring with a flourish Thursday in lowering his ERA to a more respectable 4.81.
Cingrani threw seven fine innings against an Arizona lineup albeit missing most of its starters and gave up just one run on five hits. He walked two and struck out six.
He is locked into the starting rotation. His outing against the Diamondbacks merely serves to give him momentum heading into the regular season.
|Tony Cingrani picks up second Cactus League win |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/22/14) Reds pitcher Tony Cingrani picked up his second Cactus League win on Saturday against the Cubs. He yielded three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out four over 4 2/3 innings pitched.
Cingrani started the spring with five scoreless innings over his first two outings. Since then, he has allowed 12 earned runs over his last 12 1/3 innings of work. He has a 17:10 K:BB ratio over 17 1/3 innings of work this spring.
|In a class that included Shelby Miller, Julio Teheran, Gerrit Cole, Zack Wheeler, Michael Wacha and Chris Archer, among others, Tony Cingrani was probably the most impressive rookie pitcher this side of Jose Fernandez last year. He didn't get a full season to strut his stuff, beginning the year in the minors and shuffling between the starting rotation and bullpen before finally shutting it down in September with a sore back, but if he had the innings to qualify, he would have ranked 15th among starting pitchers in WHIP, 12th in ERA, second in hits per nine innings and second in strikeouts per nine innings. Not bad for a guy with almost no breaking ball to speak of. Of course, that's a big reason why some people are skeptical he can sustain that success. Just how far can heat and a funky, Chris Sale-like delivery carry him? If his 1.65 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 11.8 strikeouts per nine innings in the minors are any indication, pretty far. Plus, it's not like he's a finished product at age 24. Because he was out of the public eye in October, Cingrani may have gotten lapped by Cole and Wacha, but with a rotation spot to call his own following the departure of Bronson Arroyo, he'll be a hot ticket in the middle rounds.
