PHOENIX (AP) — Cincinnati Reds All-Star second baseman Scooter Gennett injured his right leg while fielding a grounder against Milwaukee and was helped off the field.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds have activated All-Star first baseman Joey Votto from the 10-day disabled list before Thursday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers.

He is hitting .284 with nine home runs and 55 RBIs over 118 games.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds have claimed slugger Kennys Vargas off waivers from the Minnesota Twins.
The Reds announced the acquisition Thursday. The 27-year-old Vargas batted .253 with career highs of 11 home runs and 41 RBIs in 78 games last season. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound switch-hitter made all his starts with Minnesota at either first base or designated hitter.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole was on his way to a second straight impressive start on Sunday in Cincinnati.
A Reds offensive burst derailed him.
Cole allowed one hit through five innings before Eugenio Suarez and Scooter Gennett hit two-run home runs in the sixth to back Robert Stephenson's impressive pitching and the Reds completed their second three-game sweep of the slumping Pirates this season with a 5-2 win.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Twice, the Brewers wasted chances with the bases loaded. In the end, they'd blown another opportunity to make the NL Central race a whole lot tighter.
Robert Stephenson escaped threats while pitching into the seventh on Tuesday night, and Scooter Gennett homered during Cincinnati's five-run rally in the bottom of the inning, sending the Reds to a 9-3 victory over Milwaukee.
CINCINNATI (AP) — A guy with "Bob" on the back of his jersey left Pittsburgh's batters swinging at nothing but air.
Rookie Robert Stephenson fanned a career-high 11 Pirates, and Scott Schebler drove in three runs with a homer and his first triple of the season, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-5 victory Friday night.
ATLANTA (AP) — Julio Teheran still considers himself to be Atlanta's ace, even if his numbers suggest otherwise.
"Yeah, that's the spot I want to be in hopefully for my whole career," he said. "That doesn't mean I won't have ups and downs. We're all human. We all make mistakes."
Scooter Gennett hit a grand slam, Robert Stephenson won for the first time in eight decisions and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Braves 11-8 on Saturday night.
CINCINNATI (AP) — On a steamy night, J.T. Realmuto gave the Marlins just enough to win another one.
The catcher hit a pair of two-run homers and a double on Saturday, powering Miami to its second straight victory, 5-4 over the slumping Cincinnati Reds. The Marlins won for only the third time in eight games, getting its first back-to-back wins since the All-Star break.
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — After catching for 269 pitches and watching his beleaguered bullpen escape jam after jam in extra innings, Buster Posey took matters into his own hands.
Posey homered with one out in the 17th inning for the latest walkoff homer in San Francisco history as the Giants beat the Cincinnati Reds for the first time this season with a 3-2 victory Friday night.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — There's little doubt Eric Thames can rip apart the Cincinnati Reds at this point. He got plenty of help from his teammates Tuesday night.
The slugger hit his major league-leading 11th home run — his eighth against Cincinnati this season — and the Milwaukee Brewers cruised to a 9-1 victory over the Reds.
In his first season with the Brewers, Thames capped a five-run sixth with a two-run drive off reliever Robert Stephenson, setting a franchise record for most home runs in April.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Reds left-hander Brandon Finnegan left after only one inning on Saturday because of a strained muscle in the back of his left side.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Right-hander Rookie Davis was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a bruised right forearm, a day after he was hit by a pitch from the Pittsburgh Pirates' Jameson Taillon.
Right-handed reliever Barrett Astin was recalled from Triple-A Louisville prior to Wednesday night's game against the Pirates.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cincinnati manager Bryan Price knew the St. Louis Cardinals would be out for revenge after the Reds rolled to a 13-run blowout in the opener of their four-game series Monday night.
"But, I didn't anticipate that type of vengeance," Price said after the Cardinals turned the tables with a 12-5 victory Tuesday. "It doesn't mean we have to lose the next game because we beat up on them the day before."
CHICAGO (AP) — Cincinnati Reds manager Bryan Price remembers what it was like to beat up on the Chicago Cubs.
It's a much different picture right now.
Robert Stephenson was knocked out in the fourth inning and the Reds lost 9-2 to the Cubs on Wednesday night, completing a series sweep.
CINCINNATI (AP) — Robert Stephenson said he feels less pressure in the major leagues than he did in the minors.
Sure looks that way.
Stephenson struck out nine in 5 1/3 innings, but he also yielded two homers and the Cincinnati Reds lost 5-0 to Bartolo Colon and the New York Mets on Monday.
A look at what's happening all around the majors today:
The holiday schedule on Labor Day includes only one true night game, with the other 14 all scheduled to start by late afternoon local time. A pair of prominent pitchers return to their old homes, with Zack Greinke (12-4) going for Arizona at Dodger Stadium and Drew Pomeranz (10-10 overall) up for Boston in San Diego.
CINCINNATI (AP) — The Cincinnati Reds called up left-hander Cody Reed and three other pitchers Friday to help them get through the final month of the season.
They also added right-hander Keyvius Sampson, right-hander Robert Stephenson and left-hander Wandy Peralta. They designated for assignment outfielder Kyle Waldrop.
