Johnny Cueto vs. Yordano Ventura

COMPLETE COVERAGE >


The Reds needed that day off, and now they take on the Royals in KC for two games. Luckily for them, it's #CuetoDay. They need Cueto to Cuet to get this done.

Especially since the floundering Reds' offense will be facing Yordano Ventura. Ventura's struggled to start the year, but the stuff is there, and most Reds haven't faced him. That goes to his advantage.

Mes is DHing, since we're at an AL park.

Go Reds!
