CINCINNATI - As the Reds prepare for a weekend against the Rockies there are a number of opportunities to walk away with giveaways from the game.
They were on a six-game winning streak, and the only thing hotter than the Reds this weekend will be the record-breaking temperatures.

The team is providing courtesy cups of ice at concession stands, and fans are able to bring opened bottles of water into the ballpark this weekend only. Usually, only unopened bottles of water are permitted.
"Cool rooms" will be open for fans. TVs will be in the "cool rooms" so you can watch the game while cooling off. Misting stations are also being set up near sections 106, 130, 517, and under the PNC Power Stacks in center field.
The Reds are also offering free sun screen lotion at the TriHealth first aid stations.
