Key takeaways:

The prospects of the Dodgers-Reds game being played in its entirety were not looking good this day as strong storms were anticipated popping up throughout Sunday afternoon.


Dodgers @ Reds Sunday Game

PITCHING PROBABLES: Dodgers: Yoshinobu Yamamoto (5-1, 3.17 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 61 strikeouts); Reds: Brent Suter (0-0, 4.13 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 24 strikeouts)

LINE Dodgers -206, Reds +170; over/under is 9 runs

This game starts at 12:10 pm but strong storms were anticipated shortly after the 2 pm hour.  If this one somehow gets off in full that would be a small miracle.

The Los Angeles Dodgers visit the Cincinnati Reds looking to end a three-game road skid.

Cincinnati has a 12-15 record in home games and a 22-30 record overall. The Reds are 1-11 in games decided by one run.

Los Angeles has a 14-10 record in road games and a 33-21 record overall. Dodgers hitters have a collective .430 slugging percentage to lead the NL.

Sunday's game is the seventh meeting between these teams this season. The season series is tied 3-3.

Know the Rules When Games Are Suspended, Postponed

The Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals suspended their game Tuesday night after a rainstorm rolled over Busch Stadium ahead of the bottom of the sixth inning. They plan to resume the contest, which was tied 1-1 when the grounds crew rolled out the tarp, at 12:15 p.m. Wednesday and play their series finale 30 minutes after.

Sportsbooks have different rules on suspended games just like they do for postponements. Most books may keep the bet active if the game is going to be resumed within 24 to 36 hours.

With DraftKings, for example, Bets on games suspended after they have started will have action as long as the game is resumed within 36 hours of the original start time.
