The Reds hopped the Padres in the wild-card race due to San Diego's 9-1 loss Monday to the Giants, who lead the NL. Against Pittsburgh, Cincinnati will look to rebound after dropping its last two games against St. Louis.
The Reds play the Dodgers, who have a 16.5-game lead for the first wild card, in their next series. Los Angeles is 7-3 in its last 10 games.
In Tuesday's game, the Reds will start lefthander Wade Miley, who is having a career renaissance this season with Cincinnati. Miley threw a no-hitter back in May and has sustained that success with a 2.89 ERA over 155 innings.
With just a few weeks left in the regular season, the Reds have a chance to play October baseball for the first time since 2013.
