The Pirates have way too much confusing backstory! Reds win, 9-0.

Joe Nuxhall Memorial Honorary Star of the Game

Johnny Cueto.  I mean, come on!  He struck out eight, walked none, and allowed only one hit in a 102-pitch complete game.  Sure, he was pitching against the Pirates, but still.

Honorable mention goes to Chris Heisey, who went 3 for 4 with a walk and a home run in the leadoff spot.

 

Key Plays

  • The only hit allowed by Cueto was off of Ronny Cedeno in the bottom of the third.  Janish made quite an effort for it, but it went off of his glove into LF.
  • Every Reds starter except Jonny Gomes and Paul Janish had a hit; exclude Cueto and they all had at least two hits.
