Current record: 60-44, 2nd place in NL Central, 3.5 games back
Up Next: Cincinnati Reds, 64-41, 1st place in NL Central, 3.5 games ahead
Notes: Here’s the big series we’ve been waiting for. The Reds have won 13 of 14 and 20 of 23 to expand their lead to 3.5 games. Joey Votto is still out and Brandon Phillips is questionable. The only move the Reds made at the deadline was to add Jonathan Broxton as a setup man. No lefty starters mean we won’t see much of Gaby Sanchez except as a pinch hitter vs Sean Marshall and Aroldis Chapman.
No lineups yet.
