Worth noting

• Price gave catcher Devin Mesoraco the day off after Monday's marathon game. The skipper said he planned to sit Mesoraco anyway, letting Johnny Cueto keep throwing to Brayan Pena.

• The Reds made two errors in Monday's win, only the second time all season they've done that. Cincinnati has the highest fielding percentage (.991) and the fewest number of errors (15) in the Major Leagues.

• The Reds' hitting problems with men on base have continued, as they entered Tuesday with just a .102 average on their road trip. They're just 5-for-49 in those situations, including 2-for-24 on Monday, when they stranded a season-high 14.
