Reds SP Keyvius Sampson clawed by Tigers in no-decision


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2015) The Reds scored 10 runs in the sixth inning Monday against Detroit. Unfortunately for starter Keyvius Sampson, he wasn't around to benefit from it.

Sampson was knocked out after four. He allowed five runs on nine hits with two walks and five strikeouts.

A three-run homer by J.D Martinez and solo job by Nick Castellanos got Sampson off to a terrible start in the first and a Miguel Cabrera double in the fourth added another run to his ledger and bloated his ERA to 5.55.

Sampson has been a mess over his last two outings with nine runs given up on 18 hits in just 7 1/3 innings.


Reds SP Keyvius Sampson ripped by Royals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2015) Reds rookie Keyvius Sampson was due for a poor outing and it came Wednesday against visiting Kansas City.

Sampson was slammed for four runs on nine hits in just 3 1/3 innings in a no-decison. He walked two and whiffed two.

His struggles began immediately on a walk and RBI hits by Ben Zobrist and Eric Hosmer. They continued in the second on a two-run single by Lorenzo Cain. A walk and single leading off the fourth doomed him to an early exit.

The lousy performance sent his ERA soaring from 3.18 to 4.43.


Reds SP Keyvius Sampson impresses in win over Dodgers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/14/2015) Making the third start of his young career, Reds rookie pitcher Keyvius Sampson was strong in his outing against the Dodgers on Thursday. The 24-year-old allowed two runs on five hits over five innings. He walked three and struck out three in the 10-3 victory.

Sampson (2-1, 3.18 ERA) needed 96 pitches (50 strikes) to get through the fifth. But he did a good job of limiting the damage, while facing a potent Dodgers lineup.

He blanked the Dodgers through the first three innings, but served up a solo home run to Joc Pederson in the fourth inning. He then gave up another run in the fifth, but the Reds had given him a sizeable lead to work with.

The young Sampson has looked impressive over his first three starts, holding his own against three very tough teams.
