The Cincinnati Reds are a Major League Baseball team based in Cincinnati, Ohio. They are members of the Central Division of the National League. The franchise originated in 1882 as the Cincinnati Red Stockings, using a name that dates back to baseball's first professional team in 1869. They settled on their current name by 1890, though they used the name "Redlegs" for part of the 1950s to avoid any perceived association with Communism during the McCarthy era. The franchise was a charter member of the American Association, then one of the two major leagues, and then joined the National League in 1890. - Source: Wikipedia
Kevin Gausman (3-9) pitched two innings in his first start since the Reds claimed him off waivers from the Braves last month.
Reds announced after the game that RHP Lucas Sims (2-1) would start Tuesday's game in place of LHP Alex Wood (1-3), who developed what were described as "back issues."
