Worth noting

• Monday was the fourth consecutive sellout at Great American Ball Park, marking just the second time the Reds have done that since 1970, the year they moved into Riverfront Stadium. The last such occasion came in June 2004, when Cincinnati hosted Texas (two games) and Pittsburgh (two games).
