LHP Amir Garrett (3-2, 4.25 ERA) is expected to be added to the Reds roster and make the start in Thursday’s series finale.

RHP Tim Adleman is scheduled to return to action and start Saturday’s game against the Colorado Rockies. He had to leave last Sunday’s game against the Giants after just one inning due to a stiff neck. He’s 2-2 with a 5.27 ERA in six appearances (five starts) to date.
SS Zack Cozart was 3-for-5 and homered in his fifth consecutive game at Wrigley Field to tie a ballpark record. Cozart is the third visiting player to do so and it marks the eighth time this has been accomplished. Houston’s Carlos Beltran was the last (June 29-Aug. 27, 2004). Cozart has now also hit safely in nine straight games at Wrigley.
RHP Scott Feldman (2-4) worked just 2 2/3 innings, giving up seven runs (five earned) on five hits. He walked three and struck out four while throwing 88 pitches. ”Too many pitches, bad command tonight, so I’ve got some stuff to work on and iron it out for next time,“ Feldman said. ”You’ve got able to hit your spots and make pitches and just didn’t do that today.
