It appeared that streak would end when only Luis Castillo was selected in the initial announcement, but a second Reds starting pitcher, Sonny Gray, was named to the team late Saturday as a replacement for Washington Nationals starter Max Scherzer, who pitched Saturday.
The Reds have had at least two All-Stars every season since 2009.
Gray is 5-5 with a 3.59 ERA in 17 starts in his first season with the Reds, who acquired him from the New York Yankees in January.
