I haven't yet seen any updates on Johnny Cueto, who left last night's game prematurely with a "strained lat" and was due to be examined today. You can watch Cueto's postgame interview here, via Jamie Ramsey. He describes the pain as what, to my ear, sounds like "crack" and is translated as "pop," which happened only once, against Soriano. It's hard to describe pain and know anything definite until the Reds announce something.

Homer is the third in that trio of under-26 Reds starters performing well over the home stretch of the season. It gets hairy when you start talking about young men at the top of their fields in their mid-20s, but these guys don't show an signs of flame-out or artistic differences yet.

Reds go for the four-game series win today. Lineups after the jump.
