  • April 19: The Reds fired manager Bryan Price after a 3–15 start to the season, along with pitching coach Mack Jenkins. Price managed in Cincinnati for five seasons and finished with a record of 279 wins and 387 losses. Bench coach Jim Riggleman was named interim manager, with Double-A Pensacola pitching coach Danny Darwin joining the coaching staff. Pat Kelly, who was the manager of Triple-A Louisville, will be the bench coach.[8]
  • April 23 – April 29: Joey Votto was named N.L. Player of the Week as he slashed .360/.543/.880 with 7 runs scored, 4 HR and 8 RBI, while drawing 9 walks.[9]


  • May 7 – May 13: Scooter Gennett was named N.L. Player of the Week with a slash line of .591/.591/1.227, 4 HR, 10 RBI, 7 runs and 2 doubles.[10]
  • May 8: The Reds acquired starting pitcher Matt Harvey from the New York Mets in exchange for catcher Devin Mesoraco.[11]
  • May 10 – May 13: The Reds swept the Dodgers in a four-game series for the first time since August 1976.[12]
  • May 21 – May 27: Scooter Gennett was named N.L. Player of the Week for the second time in the 2018 season. Gennett batted .500 (12–for-24) with 6 runs scored, 2 doubles, 3 HR and 10 RBI over six games played. Among his NL counterparts during the period, Scooter finished first in hits, slugging percentage (.958) and total bases (23); tied for first in home runs, extra–base hits (5) and RBI; second in batting average; tied for third in runs scored; and seventh in on–base percentage (.519).[13]


  • June 2: Scooter Gennett was named N.L. Player of the Month for the month of May. Gennett batted .398 (37–for–93) with 16 runs scored, 6 doubles, 8 HR and 24 RBI over 26 games played.[14]
  • June 21–24: The Reds swept the Cubs in a four-game series for the first time since April 1983, outscoring them 31–13 in the four games.[15] In game 3, Anthony DeSclafani hit a grand slam, the first pitcher to do this for the Reds since Bob Purkey in 1959. In the 4th game, the Reds trailed 6–1, but managed to come back by scoring 7 runs in the 7th inning.
  • June 30: Michael Lorenzen became the second Reds pitcher to hit a grand slam this season following Anthony DeSclafani's grand slam a week earlier. The home run was Lorenzen's third in as many at-bats making him the first pitcher to homer in three-straight at-bats since Mike Hampton in 2001.[16]


  • July 8: Joey Votto, Scooter Gennett and Eugenio Suárez were named reserves on the National League squad for the 2018 MLB All-Star Game in Washington, D.C. This is Votto's sixth All-Star selection and the first for both Gennett and Suarez.[17]
  • July 10: The Reds rallied from a four run deficit and scored seven runs in the 9th inning to defeat the Cleveland Indians, 7–4. The four-run comeback was the Reds' first since June 30, 2006 when Adam Dunn hit a walk-off grand slam, also against the Indians.[18]
  • July 17: Scooter Gennett and Joey Votto both hit home runs in a 6–8 loss to the American League in the All-Star game. Gennett's home run was the first for a Red in an All-Star game since July 13, 1982 when Dave Concepción hit one.[19]
  • July 23: The Reds were no-hit for seven innings by Cardinals rookie pitcher Daniel Poncedeleon. Poncedelon was taken out of the game in the 8th inning where Phillip Ervin broke up the no-hitter with a single off reliever Jordan Hicks. Eugenio Suárez tied the game in the 9th with a solo home run and Dilson Herrera hit a walk-off single later in the inning to give the Reds the 2–1 win.[20]
  • July 30: The Reds acquired pitchers Lucas Sims and Matt Wisler along with outfielder Preston Tucker from the Atlanta Braves in exchange for outfielder Adam Duvall.[21]


  • August 10: Joey Votto collected his 1,700th career hit with a single in the sixth-inning. Votto is the ninth player in franchise history to reach that level.[22]
  • August 29: Eugenio Suárez hit his 30th home run of the season, becoming the fourth player in Reds history to hit that many home runs while primarily playing third base. He joins Tony Pérez, Todd Frazier and Deron Johnson. Pitcher Michael Lorenzen also had a pinch-hit three-run home run, his fourth home run and his third against the Brewers this season.[23]
