Johnny Cueto vs. Wade Miley

Mostly clear. Winds blowing out to left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game-time temperature: Around 100


The Reds get a chance to help Todd Frazier's "Rookie of the Year" chances tonight as they face Todd's strongest competition for the award. Wade Miley has been terrific this year. His 4.04 K/BB ratio ranks top 10 in the National League among qualified pitchers. He doesn't strike out a lot of hitters (6.5 K/9) but he rarely allows a free pass (1.61 BB/9). Much like Cueto, young Miley has been terrific when it comes to keeping the ball in the park.

Our Cincinnati baseball team will counter with Mr. Johnny Cueto. You may have heard of him. He's quite good.

If you're interested in individual awards, this game could have major implications on the NL Cy Young and Rookie of the Year awards.

Looks like the typical day of against a tough lefty for Bruce.

All systems go for the bullpen tonight. Marshall could probably use some rest, but the rest of the men in the 'pen should be available.
