Reds start stretch of 20 games in 20 days
CINCINNATI -- Friday marked the start of what will be Reds' longest stretch of games this season without a day off -- 20 games in 20 days. The next off-day is May 31.

The first 14 of those games, including this weekend vs. the Nationals, are against teams with winning records.

"You just hope whoever is pitching the first part of this 20-game stretch, that we don't get into our bullpen right away," Reds manager Dusty Baker said on Friday. "Last year, there were a couple of times we had long stretches where I was in my bullpen early. This stretch may depend on where we are and where we're going."

Baker did not rule out giving key players days off during the next three weeks.

"That's where everybody comes into play," he said.
