The Cincinnati Reds are having a brutal run and it doesn’t seem like the All-Star break has done them any favors.
Cincinnati entered the break as one of the best teams in baseball. The Reds were 6-3 and defending the top of the National League Central as the season drew to a close. Sure, Cincinnati was shutout by the Milwaukee Brewers before the break, but nobody saw them completely cold in the middle of summer.

The Reds only had seven hits over the course of their three-game scoreless streak.
