- If you’d prefer not to forget about it and dig deeper, here’s a link to FanGraphs’ coverage of the game, rife with charts and graphs and fans and graphs and fangraphs.
- Sonny Gray is still slated to start Sunday’s series finale between the Reds and Twins, as possible seeding issues are at stake for both Cincinnati and Minnesota.

- First pitch Sunday is set for 1:10 PM ET.
