2008 - Johnny Cueto 8-13 4.77 1.37 149 59

2008 - Brandon Webb 19-7 3.41 1.20 166 57

The Reds seem to be catching these division front runners all while they are on a downswing. The Diamondbacks have lost 6 in a row and have just 3 wins in their last 16 games. Similarly, Webb has been struggling as well. In his last three starts, he's pitched only 13.2 innings and has a 12.51 ERA.

Johnny Cueto pitched okay in his last start, but didn't get any help from the bullpen and the Reds lost 14-9. He has a 3.73 ERA since the start of August, but an injury and a general inability to pitch deep into games has left him with just a 1-3 record in that span. He still needs 2 wins to reach double digits on the season.

Aaron Harang is the starter tonight, not Cueto.

Other than that, I can't think of any storylines for this game. Can you?
