Cincinnati Reds outfielder Nick Senzel has been activated for today's double header against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Cincinnati Reds recalled José De León, placed Tyler Thornburg on the injured list with an elbow sprain, and sent Matt Davidson to Prasco.
When it rains, it pours, and it poured in Chicago as the Cincinnati Reds lost Jesse Winker, Mike Moustakas, and Tyler Thornburg to injuries.
It started out so well. The Reds jumped out to a 3-0 lead. Meanwhile, the Marlins were down 6-3 in the 8th inning. Those two scores hold, the Reds are somehow, someway back within 1.5 games of playoff spot. But it's 2020. The Marlins rallied to win 7-6. Sonny Gray cruised through the first three innings, but then the rain fell and it fell hard in the 4th inning. Gray walked two batters as it appeared he could not get a good grip on the baseball. The Cubs ended up scoring 5 runs in the 4th inning with a grand total of one ball leaving the infield.
