DENVER (AP) -The Cincinnati Reds optioned left-hander Bobby Livingston to Triple-A Louisville on Saturday.
The move came a day after Livingston earned his first major league victory. He had been with the Reds since last Monday, and allowed seven hits in 6 2-3 innings as the Reds beat the Colorado Rockies 4-2 on Friday night.
``Bobby was brought up to be used in the bullpen and make an occasional start,'' Cincinnati manager Jerry Narron said. ``Last night's start gave us what we needed.''
The Reds recalled right-handed Marcus McBeth from Louisville, where he had no record with a 0.75 ERA in 12 appearances.
``Marcus will be in the bullpen, but won't work long relief,'' Narron said. ``He will be used for an inning, a batter or whatever else we need him for.''
