They'll play four games in a row - two in Cincinnati starting Monday, two more in Cleveland starting Wednesday. And they're both near the top of the standings, which isn't usually the case.
Since interleague play started in 1997, this is only the fifth year in which both teams are in first or second place when they meet, according to STATS. It also happened in 1999, 2000, 2011 and 2012.
They have a Korean tie that binds them. The Reds got outfielder Shin-Soo Choo from Cleveland in a trade involving outfielder Drew Stubbs. So far, the trade is working out well for both teams.
The Indians lead the all-time series 42-39.
