Keeping the ball in the park has been a contributing factor behind Boyd’s breakout season, but he’ll get a test in the hitter-friendly confines of Great American Ball Park with summer weather settling in. He’s 1-3 with a 3.97 ERA on the road.

Romano is coming off the best start of his season: eight innings of one-run ball for a no-decision on Tuesday at KC. He had his sinker working well and induced a lot of contact and grounders. It was exactly the confidence boost he needed.

Career stats

Fulmer has posted seven innings of one-run ball in each of his last two outings, getting back to his old form by pounding hitters with 97-98-mph sinkers down in the strike zone. Expect more of that in Cincinnati, even on a hot summer afternoon.

Mahle tied a career-high with 6 1/3 IP in a 7-0 win in KC on Wednesday. His four-seamer was located well and he induced two inning-ending double plays. Mahle also may have found a batterymate in Curt Casali; the two have worked well together.

Harvey gave up three runs over five-plus Friday to the Pirates, with none of the runs coming via hits. In the second, his tempo slowed and he labored. But he retired 10 of 11 batters before the sixth. The Reds have lost each of his last four starts.

Hendricks ended a personal three-game losing streak with a win Saturday. The goal now may be to get through the first without giving up a homer. He's served up 14 homers this year, seven in the first. He did not get a decision vs. the Reds on May 19.
