The Cincinnati Reds have made a few changes when they realized they won’t be contending in the National League Central. The Reds didn’t have a good Saturday as they lost both ends of a doubleheader. Keyvius Sampson absorbed the loss in game two with three runs given up on five hits and three bases on balls through three frames with Jose Rafael Diaz giving up three more. The offense couldn’t keep up the pace on seven hits and a pair of walks that saw Adam Duvall go deep and score twice while Pedro Villarreal knocked in two. Cincinnati is slated to send Michael Lorenzen to the hill for the third time this year. Lorenzen has struggled the past two times out with 12 runs given up on 13 hits and three BB in six innings.
