“V” IS FOR VICTORY: REDS WIN!
Johnny Cueto fired his 6th career complete game and the Reds beat the Indians Tuesday night, 7-1. Cueto improved to 7-3 by giving up just 1 run on 6 hits with no walks and 7 strikeouts (122 TP) over 9.0 innings. Wilson Valdez, playing shortstop and batting second for the under-the-weather Zack Cozart, went 3-for-5 with a run and and an RBI. Chris Heisey (2r) and Brandon Phillips had 2 hits apiece.
Game two of ‘The Battle of Ohio’ takes place Wednesday night with first pitch at 7:05pm. RHP Mat Latos will oppose RHP Derek Lowe. Orginally Mike Leake was to start for the Reds, but due to a nasty flu (like) bug going around the Reds clubhouse, Dusty will instead give the ball to Latos. Leake is tentatively slated to take the hill Thursday.
