The Cincinnati Reds are clinging to the faintest of hopes for a postseason berth.
With absolutely zero margin for error, the Reds (81-75) will host a makeup game against the Pittsburgh Pirates (58-97) on Monday afternoon. The contest initially was postponed last Wednesday due to inclement weather.
Cincinnati, which has won 11 of 15 encounters with Pittsburgh this season, captured the final three contests of its recent four-game series against the Washington Nationals. The Reds reside six games behind the surging St. Louis Cardinals for the final wild-card spot in the National League with six games to play.
