• According to the Elias Sports Bureau, after blowing an eight-run lead in Friday's 14-9 loss, the Reds became the sixth team in the last five seasons to lose a game after holding at least an eight-run advantage (teams that held at least an eight-run lead in that span are 1,158-6).
• Friday's game was the first since May 17, 1896, in which a Major League team won by five or more runs after its opponent scored eight or more in the first or second inning. That game was between the Brooklyn Bridegrooms and, of course, the Cincinnati Reds. Brooklyn led, 9-0, after the top of the first and Cincinnati came back to win, 16-10.
• Center fielder Billy Hamilton entered Saturday's game against the Blue Jays leading all National League rookies in multi-hit games (17), runs (35), hits (tied for first with 66), stolen bases (30) and outfield assists (tied for first with four).
