Worth noting

• Xavier Paul started in left field and batted sixth on Sunday, in place of regular left fielder Ryan Ludwick. Paul, from Slidell, La., also started a game during the Reds' last series in Houston.

• Catcher Devin Mesoraco was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday. He batted .167 (3-for-18) for Louisville after being optioned there on Aug. 23. Mesoraco served a two-game suspension on Aug. 21-22 after making contact with home-plate umpire Chad Fairchild during a July 30 argument over balls and strikes, and hasn't played for the Reds since Aug. 20. Ryan Hanigan started behind the plate on Sunday.
