Shades of Tom Seaver for Dan Straily

With yet another win on Tuesday, Straily is 6-0 in eight starts since the All-Star break. The only other pitcher in Reds history to go 6-0 or better over his first eight starts after the All-Star break was Seaver in 1977, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

Quite the rebound for the Reds

The Reds beat the Rangers 3-0 one game after getting routed by the Dodgers, 18-9. The last time the Reds allowed no runs in a game after allowing 18 or more runs was in April 1926, the Elias Sports Bureau notes. The Reds lost to the Cubs 18-1 on April 23, 1926 and then beat the Cardinals 4-0 two days later.
