Johnny Cueto vs. Jake Arrieta


The Reds take on the Cubs again this evening, and hopefully tonight will be an improvement on what we saw yesterday. If there's a pitcher that can outdo the job that Alfredo Simon did last night, though, it's probably Johnny Cueto.

He'll face Jake Arrieta, which should make for quite the pitcher's duel. Knowing this season, though, this'll end up being a shootout of a game.

The bullpen looks pretty rested.

Go Reds!
