Cincinnati Reds - 2015 World Series Champions


The Cincinnati reds owned the 2015 season. Taking their 125 win season into the playoffs, the Reds swept the Brewers and Padres in route to the World Series. Behind a dominant pitching staff, the Reds completed a near perfect post season with a 4-1 World Series title over the Oakland A’s.
The Series started with a 17 inning marathon. Series MVP and 2015 Cy Young winner Travis Wood allowed 5 hits through 10 and Gio Gonzalez allowed 3 hits through 6. The Reds won the game 2-1 in the bottom of the 17th on an RBI double by Cody Ross. The Reds dominated game 2; Tony Cingrani struck out 10, and the Reds scattered 11 hits, taking a 9-2 victory and a 2-0 Series lead.
Coming home to Oakland, the A’s took an early game 3 lead in the 2nd inning when Stephen Vogt hit a 2 run double. Rich Harden pitched 6 shutout innings, but the Reds came alive in the 8th . Devin Mesoraco and Timothy Pagliarulo hit back to back Home Runs giving the Reds the victory 5-3, and a 3-0 series lead. Avoiding the sweep, the A’s fought hard in game 4, scoring 5 runs on 5 hits, earning a 5-4 victory. The A’s took a first inning lead in the game on Daric Barton’s two run, bases loaded single.
Travis Wood returned to the mound for the Reds in game 5, and once again pitched brilliantly, holding the A’s to 2 runs on 4 hits, leading the Reds to a 5-2 victory giving the Reds their second championship in 3 seasons. Travis Wood took the Series MVP striking out 14 in 18.2 innings with a .98 ERA, .87 WHIP. Cody Ross led the Reds on offense batting .333, hitting 1 Home Run and 2 Doubles with a 1.167 OPS.

San Diego Padres - 2014 World Series Champions


Behind stellar pitching, the San Diego Padres swept the Oakland A's 4 games to none to win the 2014 World Series. The Padres staff held the A's to a .181 team batting average, striking out 42 batters.

The Padres dominated game 1 behind Carlos Zambrano who allowed 1 run on 5 hits, striking out 9 and the bat of Hank Blalock who drove in 4 on 2 Home Runs. The A's were one out away from evening the series in game 2, leading 5-2 in the 9th with 2 outs, when the Padres bats caught fire. Bautista and Grandal hit Home Runs to tie the game and send it to extra innings, where Jason Hayward hit the game winning Home Run in the 10th.

The Padres pitching staff sealed the series in game 3 behind Greinke's 9 K/O performance as Everth Cabrera hit the game clinching Home Run in the 8th. Cliff Lee's 3 hitter in game 4 brought the championship to the Padres.

The Padres championship was truly a team effort, but we must give the series MVP to Jose Bautista who started the game 2 rally. Bautista led the Padres with a 1.615 OPS, hitting .308 with 3 doubles and 1 HR, and that 1 HR was a big one. Troy Tulowitzky led the A's offense, finishing with a .353 Avg, 1.176 OPS with 2 doubles and 1 HR.


Cincinnati Reds - 2013 World Series Champions


The World Champion Cincinnati Reds ruled the 2013 season from opening day through the World Series. Taking the best record in baseball to the playoffs, the Reds brought their brooms to the World Series, sweeping the Toronto Blue Jays 4 games to none.

The Big Red Machine pounded 16 home runs, and a scorching 46 runs in the 4 game series. The Reds were led by Series and League MVP Wily Mo Pena, who batted an incredible .563 with a head spinning 3.188 OPS. No, that is not a typo - 3.188 OPS ! 7 of Pena's 9 hits were Home Runs, and he scored 11 Runs, and drove in 12 RBIs.

Not to be outdone was the Reds dominating pitching. The Reds Starters combined for a 0.810 ERA and 1.26 WHIP, striking out 20.

Matt Kemp led the hitting for the Blue Jays, batting .333 and 1.133 OPS.
