Great American Ballpark
Johnny Cueto v. Trailer Park Travis Wood
There were a couple of bright spots over the weekend, but I feel like after this recent stretch, I needed that off day as a fan as much as the players did. Even better, the Cubs are in town. That usually means good things.
Johnny Cueto is pitching for Cincinnati, which also usually means good things. He'll be looking to build off of a rough last outing, though, where he gave up 5 runs in 5 innings in his second-worst outing of the year.
He'll face Travis Wood, who's been decent lately and has proven himself to be perfectly serviceable in the Cubs' rotation. He had some trouble with the Reds earlier this year, giving up 4 runs in 5 1/3.
Todd Frazier's at first tonight, with Kris Negron on the hot corner.
