The final game of the regular season may be in sight for the Reds, but that doesn’t mean a home wildcard game -- and future playoff games -- are impossible.
If the Reds have another winning series against the Pirates, this round at home, they’ll likely host the Bucs in a one-game playoff on Oct. 1 to determine who moves on to a five-game series. But first we’ve got to get through these last few games of the regular season before we think about the post-season, and there’s no shame in having hope already.
The Reds are home Wednesday-Sunday, with the season finale starting at 1:10 p.m. Sunday. Ticket prices vary. Great American Ball Park, 100 Joe Nuxhall Way, Downtown, 513-765-7000, cincinnati.reds.mlb.com.
