Mat Latos allowed one earned run on nine hits while walking two and striking out three in the Reds 3-1 extra inning loss to the Braves on Friday.
Latos settled for his third consecutive no-decision on Friday night as he has now allowed three runs or less in each of his last six starts. Sitting 4-3, Latos has had a respectable season to this point, owning a 2.99 ERA and 1.08 WHIP through 13 starts while managing a 57:23 K;BB rate. With the Reds owning the worst record in baseball in the second half it is hard to be optimistic about how much run support he is going to receive, but he will at least give fantasy owners help in both ratio categories if nothing else down the stretch. He will look to get back in the win column when he takes on the Cubs on Wednesday.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Ray McDonald has been cleared by NFL in one of two cases.
Apparently there was not sufficient evidence to charge McDonald for the Domestic Violence charge that's been lingering over him since last season. The other charge is a sexual assault charge, which is still being investigated. It's unclear whether or not McDonald will actually miss any time during the upcoming season. Analysis: Spencer Silva
