The Reds are going for their 3rd sweep in their last 4 series at home and their 12th win in their last 13 home games. It'll be tough as Hudson dominated the Reds back on May 2nd, throwing a complete game, 3-hit shutout while striking out 10. But that lineup had 3 players that aren't available for today's game (Patterson, Keppinger, and Hatteberg) and was notably missing one name that is available.

Cueto hasn't allowed a HR in his last two starts, but he also hasn't gone past 5 innings in either of those starts. The Reds gave him 9 runs in his last start - the only time this year they've scored more than 5 for him. Hopefully they're starting a new trend of run support for the youngster.
