Guys, the Reds need this one. Bad. The Cards and the Pirates keep winning. The Reds keep not winning. The Reds need to start winning.

The Reds try to accomplish that with Johnny Cueto on the hill. Cueto is coming off of a start in Arizona where he got knocked around the tune of 7 runs, so he needs to bounce back tonight. Needs to.

The Rangers counter with Martin Perez, who was good in his last start and who makes his 3rd start of the season. As Adam from LSB told us, he works in the mid-90s and can be hit or miss depending on if his stuff his on, so the Reds will hope it's the latter.

The Reds need this one. Go Reds.
