Losers of six of their first eight, the Reds aren’t faring much better than the Phillies to start the 2018 season, but they’re trying to do it with a far more traditional manner of baseball playing. Their champion will be Cody Reed, who is making his season debut and, in 2.0 career inning vs. the Phillies, has allowed no hits, no runs, and four walks.
