Braves-Reds Preview

(AP) -- After struggling for much of the year, Mike Minor turned in one of his better showings last weekend.

That's a good sign for the visiting Atlanta Braves, who will try to stay hot Friday night against a Cincinnati Reds team that's quickly dropping out of playoff contention.

Minor (5-8, 5.16 ERA) had a 6.97 ERA over an 11-start stretch before stepping up in Sunday's 4-3 win over Oakland. The left-hander yielded two runs and four hits over a season best-tying seven innings while striking out seven.
