CINCINNATI (AP) — The Reds and Giants are exploring options for making up their rained-out game in Cincinnati, including the possibility of playing it on the road.

Day-long rain forced the teams to call off the final game of their series on Thursday. It's San Francisco's only trip into town.

The teams share an off-day on Aug. 29, their only break in long stretches of games. The Reds play in St. Louis the previous day, then open a series in Colorado on the 30th. The Giants conclude a series at Coors Field on the 27th, so the teams have thought about playing the make-up game there.

They also could do a day-night doubleheader when the Reds are in San Francisco later this month. The players' union would have to approve any plan.
