    Why Is The Media Reporting That The Reds Have Never Won A Series From The Indians?

    This is flawed, innacurate and not correct.

    The Reds won two of three from June 16 thru 18, 1997, the first time they ever played each other. The Indians won two of three in 1998. The Indians won four of six in 1999, but the Reds took two of three in Cleveland. The Indians won four of six in 2000, with the Reds taking two of three in Cincinnati. The Reds won two of three in Cleveland in 2001, and lost two of three in Cincinnati. They did not play each other in 2002. Cleveland won two of three in Cleveland in 2003. In 2004, the Reds won two of three at home, and lost all three in Cleveland. In 2005, the Indians won four of six.

    Someone should have done more research.

    I heard on WLW's postgame show that the Reds had lost the last 9 series against Cleveland. Based on your research that's equally wrong.

    It looks like they've been well-matched over since interleague play began. I guess the losses must be more memorable than the wins.

    The Reds are 5-8 in their interleague series against the Indians since 1997, when interleague play began. Their individual win-loss record is 16 and 24 against the Tribe.

    If WLW said that, they are wrong. The Reds haven't lost 9 games in a row to the Indians, much less the last 9 series.

    Not really. The Reds are 16-24 and have been outscored by the Indians 152 to 203 since 1997. The 15-2 loss and the extra inning win in '04 were both pretty memorable to me. "thug life" with the walk-off single. Good times.
