Suspended Reds manager David Bell planned to watch Friday's game in privacy after his wayward experience the night before.

Bell, who is serving a six-game suspension for his role in a benches-clearing brawl this week, tried to observe his team from the stands Thursday at SunTrust Park, only to be recognized by fans who wanted to chat and take pictures with him during the action.

"Tonight I've got the MLB app set up on my phone," he said. "I don't know why I didn't think of that. Now I can watch it anywhere tonight. I'm all set."
