Found June 06, 2013 on Red Hot Mama:
Johnny Cueto long tosses before a game between his DL stints.As you probably noticed by the fact that he didn’t start yesterday’s game, Johnny Cueto is on the DL again. At least it’s not his oblique muscle again: this time he’s got a strained right shoulder. He’s on the 15-day DL retroactive to his last start and they’re saying he’ll only miss a start or two (he’s already missed one, so they must mean another start or two). The Reds grabbed the guy who was going to be starting for the Bats, right-hander Pedro Villarreal, to start in Cueto’s place. Sucks to be the Bats, I guess. Actually, sucks to be Villarreal. He wasn’t exactly up to the challenge last night. His 6 runs (earned) on 10 hits and 2 walks over 3.2 innings earned him the loss. Not that he was the only one who stunk up the place. The bullpen combined to give up just as many runs. And the offense didn’t push enough across the place to win even if Villarreal’s innings had been the only ones that counted. That’s 2 losses in

Series preview: Cards face second-place Reds in Cincinnati

ST. LOUIS -- Even though the Reds went 19-7 in May, they drew a near-Marlins like crowd of only 18,498 when they returned home Monday night. Maybe Cincinnati fans were holding out for this weekend. The Cardinals are coming to town for the first time this season. Much larger crowds are expected for the three-game set between the rivals. Not so long ago, you could have inserted the...

Redbirds feasting on scoring chances

CINCINNATI Mike Leake was one out away from getting out of a precarious predicament in the fourth inning Friday night in the opener of a three-game series against NL Central leading St. Louis. The Cardinals had runners on first and third but Leake struck out fan not-so-favorite Yadier Molina for a second out. While hardly secure, Leake had to be breathing a little easier as David...

The Cardinals (39-21) lead the Reds (36-24) by three games in the...

St. Louis Cardinals vs. Cincinnati Reds: Heated rivalry turns to Cincy

The Cardinals, who have the league’s best record at 39-21, lead the Reds by just three games in the National League Central...

Rockies tee off on rookie pitcher

Carlos Gonzalez arrived early at Great American Ball Park expecting to face Johnny Cueto. He got a little extra practice on his swing, trying to make it faster for one of the toughest pitchers in the majors. The Rockies' home run leader was ready to face the best. Instead, he got a rookie making his first start in the majors, and simply overpowered him. Gonzalez tied his career...
