• Coming off a 2-6 road trip and sitting 5 1/2 games out of first entering Monday, Reds manager Dusty Baker said he doesn't want anybody pressing the panic button.
"I'm just glad to be home, and I hope everybody's positive about it because we're at the halfway point," Baker said. "It's not like it's Sept. 5. I just know this club. I have full faith in this club, and I know we'll turn it around."
• Before the national anthem on Monday, the Reds joined teams across baseball by holding a moment of silence to honor the 19 firefighters who died in Arizona on Sunday. The firefighters died battling a massive fire covering almost 9,00 acres of land that was sparked by a lightning strike about 80 miles northwest of Phoenix.
