...and the seeds of the "Battle of Ohio" were planted...

Reds fans happily say goodbye to the spit-balling Tigers as we welcome in the Cleveland Indians. The majority of televisions in the Cleveland area will be tuned in to the NBA finals, because rooting against LeBron James is the closest Cleveland fans will come to a professional championship.

Those of us in the Queen City will be treated to a match-up between Johnny (I'm not a robot) Cueto and Jeanmar (don't call me Carlos) Gomez. Cueto has posted back-to-back strong starts, both against the Pirates. For young Jeanmar Gomez, strong starts have been difficult to come by. In four of his last six starts, Gomez has allowed at least five earned runs. Jeanmar doesn't miss many bats (4.5 K/9) with his modest fastball/slider combination, so the Reds should have plenty of scoring opportunities tonight.

Cueto will face a patient, albeit weak, bunch of Cleveland hitters. The Indians rank 3rd in the AL in OBP (.329), yet come in at 13th in SLG (.379). It's a good thing that Mr. Cueto is adept at holding runners on base because this scrappy group from Cleveland leads the American League in stolen bases with 49 swipes.
