Cincinnati Reds' Trevor Bauer reacts after recording a strikeout against Milwaukee Brewers' Christian Yelich during a baseball game in Cincinnati, Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020. The Reds won 6-1.

Reds fans can enjoy the best of Trevor Bauer one more time as Fox Sports Ohio repeats four of his best games Nov. 8-10.

The National League Cy Young Award candidate, who has opted for free agency, posted a career-best 1.73 earned run average in 11 starts for the Reds this year. Bauer's 5-4 record belied his excellent statistics, which included two complete games and two shutouts, 100 strikeouts and only 17 walks in 73 innings.

On Wednesday, Bauer rejected the $18.9-million qualifying offer made Nov. 1 by the Reds, according to the Enquirer. The rejection was expected, although Bauer said he hasn't ruled out a return to Cincinnati. However, the "Reds are considered longshots to sign him" since he's expected to be courted by teams in bigger markets, the Enquirer says.

Here's the FSO schedule:

Sunday, Nov. 8, 8 p.m.: Reds win 3-1 at Arizona Diamondbacks on Sept. 15, 2019. Bauer goes eight innings, striking out nine and giving up one earned run.

Monday, Nov.  9, 6 p.m.: Reds win 3-0 at Chicago Cubs on Sept. 9, 2020. Bauer gave up three hits, striking out 10 and outpitching Cubs ace Yu Darvish in 7-2/3 innings.

Monday, Nov.  9, 9 p.m.: Reds win 3-1 over Pittsburgh Pirates at Great American Ball Park on Sept. 14, 2020. Bauer allowed four hits, struck out 12 and walked two. He retired 14 consecutive batters going into the seventh inning.

Tuesday, Nov. 10, 5 p.m.: Reds beat Milwaukee Brewers 6-1 at Great American Ball Park on Sept. 23, 2020. In this pivotal series for playoff contention, Bauer dominated on three days’ rest, striking out 12 and allowing four hits in eight innings.

All the games also will stream live on FOX Sports GO.
