CINCINNATI -- Tuesday night's Reds game against the Pittsburgh Pirates was postponed because of rain, the 13th postponement in 14 seasons at Great American Ball Park.

Rob Butcher, Reds director of media relations, said the team would announce the rescheduled game at a later date.

DON'T MISS: Win or lose, fans can still have fun

Both teams decided to bump their rotations back a day for the final game of the series on Wednesday, staying with their original starters for Tuesday. The Pirates' Juan Nicasio (3-3) will face Alfredo Simon (1-3).

The rainout amounted to a respite from the teams' ongoing hit-by-pitch history. In the past four seasons, the Reds have hit 39 Pirates batters -- six this season -- while the Pirates also have hit 39 Reds batters, including three this season. It's the most in the majors for two teams over that span. Joey Votto was plunked by Jonathon Niese in the series opener.

ALSO: Mesoraco's shoulder worse than expected
