Worth noting

Following a four-hour, 24-minute game against the Phillies that the Reds lost, 4-3, in 11 innings on Thursday, the Reds' traveling party did not reach Cincinnati until almost 3 a.m. ET on Friday. The Cardinals got to town before the Reds, in fact.

"You still need sleep, but you just hope and pray you have enough in the tank to get through tonight and feel good physically, emotionally and mentally," Reds manager Dusty Baker said. "Get a good night's rest, and we have a semi-early game [Saturday] and real early on Sunday, and back on the road again. We knew this would be a tough stretch. Nobody is feeling sorry for you because you got in late. We're just trying to play the freshest team we have."
