* Kris Bryant certainly has spent plenty of time on base over his last seven games, with 20 times on in 34 chances (.588).

* After struggling against Cincinnati in his first three seasons with no HRs and a .193 BA, Anthony Rizzo has become a nightmare for the Reds over the last two seasons with 10 HRs and .371 BA

* Anthony DeSclafani has tossed 21 innings over his first three starts of the season, allowing just two total runs in the process.
