Reds' Marlon Byrd doubles, homers, drives in four in win


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Left fielder Marlon Byrd doubled, homered and knocked in four runs Tuesday in the Reds' victory over the Pirates. 

Byrd had struggled early on in the season, hitting just .163 during the first month.

Tuesday marked the first time this season that Byrd notched two extra-base hits in one game.

"The home run was exciting and the double in the ninth inning was especially exciting because it's a lot easier to manage a game with a six-run lead than a one-run lead or being down a run," Reds manager Bryan Price said about Byrd.


Reds' Hamilton, Byrd, Mesoraco out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) Reds outfielders Billy Hamilton and Marlon Byrd are joining catcher Devin Mesoraco (hip) on the bench for Sunday's game against the Braves.

Both Hamilton and Byrd are available if needed Sunday. With the pair out, Skip Schumaker will lead off and play left field, while Brennan Boesch will bat seventh and play center field.

Mesoraco hasn't appeared in the starting lineup since the first week of the season, as he's continued to rehab from a left hip impingement while remaining on the active roster.

The Reds are road favorites (-142) in Atlanta with Johnny Cueto on the mound.
