DeSclafani didn’t allow another run, but the damage was done quickly in the Reds’ 4-1 loss at SunTrust Park in front of 28,677 fans.
Benavides, the Reds' bench coach, managed during previous ejections and Bell's one-game suspension in April, and he's confident it will be business as usual.
The Reds didn't have many offensive opportunities against Braves lefty Max Fried, who retired 12 of the final 14 batters he faced before the rain.
José Peraza followed with an RBI single, scoring Phillip Ervin, but the Reds didn't have another ball leave the infield until Joey Votto hit a double in the Sixth Inning.
In the sixth inning, Duvall crushed a 434-foot, solo home run to center field off lefty reliever Wandy Peralta.
