Coming off a series split with the Atlanta Braves, the Reds will take on the Philadelphia Phillies tonight in a makeup game from a rain out back on June 2. Hopefully the Reds can get the bats going again after yesterday’s shutout, especially since a series with the San Diego Padres looms in the very near future.
- You’ve heard by now, but the Reds called up Alejo Lopez. Our own Aaron Michael wrote about that news here.
- Here’s a cool article about how the Reds are finding pitchers in unique places.
