He didn't allow anyone to reach third base, though a lack of run support left him without a decision. Reed has yet to win a game for the Reds this season, posting an unremarkable 4.32 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 34 strikeouts across 33.1 innings. He'll face the Marlins in Miami next.

The 25-year-old has yet to notch his first victory of the season and owns a 5.08 ERA with 24 punchouts through 28.1 frames this season.

He was just added to Cincinnati's starting rotation earlier in the week, and he figures to stay there for the final month of the 2018 season.
