      Reds SP John Lamb has dreadful outing against Mets on Saturday

      Reds starter John Lamb (1-4) lasted only two innings on Saturday, surrendering three hits, five earned runs and two walks in a 10-2 loss to the Mets. He struck out four. Lamb, as is often typical for a rookie, followed up the best start of his career with his worst to date. Things unraveled early, with a first-inning grand slam by Lucas Duda opening the floodgates. Lamb then surrendered a solo dinger to Curtis Granderson in the second, marking his first multi-homer start. Despite the disastrous appearance on Saturday, Lamb has been a serviceable and potential-laden late-season addition to the Reds staff. His 9.96 K/9 rate and the two scoreless starts he already has to his credit serve as indicators that he could possibly blossom into a mainstay on the 2016 rotation.

      Backed by offensive outburst, Reds' John Lamb gets first ML win

      Reds rookie starter John Lamb picked up his first Major League win on Thursday, as the Reds clobbered the Cardinals 11-0. Lamb went just five innings, but he did not allow a run for the first time in his career. Lamb (1-3, 5.18 ERA) gave up just three hits though he did walk six batters while striking out six. That led to a rather high pitch count, as he left after throwing 98 pitches (57 strikes) over his five innings. Overall, it was a very impressive outing for the young left-hander. He danced in and out of danger all evening, but was able to keep a very potent Cardinals' offense off the scoreboard.

      Reds SP John Lamb suffers worst start in MLB career Saturday

      Reds starter John Lamb got roughed up in his outing against the Brewers on Saturday. Lamb, who started Game 1 of the doubleheader, allowed six runs on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked two and struck out four in the 8-6 loss. Lamb kept the Brewers in check over the first four innings, while the Reds spotted him a 3-0 lead. But he allowed Milwaukee to scratch across one run in the fifth before things really fell apart in a five-run sixth inning. He left the game trailing 6-5, but the Reds were able to rally back before ultimately falling in this one. The six runs allowed are the most in Lamb's short career so far. He had given up a total of eight earned over his last three starts combined.

      Reds rookie SP John Lamb remains winless

      John Lamb had the best start of his brief MLB career, but it wasn't enough to put a "1" in the win column as the Reds rookie lost to the Brewers on Sunday. Lamb went six innings, allowing five hits while striking out eight and walking noe. But a two-run homer to Ryan Braun in the first inning would prove to be his biggest mistake. Lamb (0-3) has seen his ERA drop in his four MLB starts from 7.50 to 5.24, suggesting he is growing more comfortable as a starter at the highest level.

The Reds' bullpen wasn't able to hold the lead, as the Diamondbacks rallied for the 5-4 victory, leaving Lamb with a no-decision. Lamb has now allowed eight runs over 11 1/3 innings over his first two starts. He does own a 15:2 K:BB ratio, however.

      Reds' John Lamb takes loss in MLB debut

      Reds pitcher John Lamb made his MLB debut against the Dodgers on Friday. Lamb took a loss, allowing five runs on eight hits over six innings. He walked two, struck out seven and surrendered a home run. "I attacked it with Brayan [Pena, the catcher] and I just happened to get beat there. It is what it is," Lamb said, per "I know I made a few other mistakes there, but generally I just went out there and told myself I was going to leave it all out there on the field and attack and challenge him. I thought I did a pretty good job of that, but obviously that home run hurt the overall outing." Reds manager Bryan Price liked what he saw from the young left-hander, who is from nearby Laguna Hills. "I thought he was extremely composed," Price said. "It's a difficult environment in which to pitch in for a debut back here at home in Dodger Stadium. I thought he handled it really well."
