Reds try to keep momentum going after day off
HOUSTON -- After playing games on 20 consecutive days, the Reds finally had a day off in Houston on Thursday.

Manager Dusty Baker said he hopes his players can quickly reacquire the momentum they gathered over the stretch, when the Reds went 12-8.

"A lot of times when you just go, go, go, go, go, go and then stop, it kind of hits you for a while," Baker said.

He was also concerned about the fact that the Reds have another day off on Monday, this time in Cincinnati.

On Tuesday, the Reds start a nine-game homestand with a three-game series against the Pirates. The Reds lost two of three in Pittsburgh earlier in the week.
