Johnny Cueto vs. Sean O'Sullivan


The Reds had a heck of a weekend, sweeping the World Series favorite Nationals in Cincinnati. In theory, this should be an easier series than the last one, despite being on the road.

The Reds have the pitching advantage tonight, with Johnny Cueto on the hill. Cueto's pitched well in his past few games, but still isn't really getting any run support. Ho hum.

They'll face Sean O'Sullivan, who gave up 7 runs to the Mets in his last start. He's only faced the Reds once, where he gave up 1 runs in 6 innings in 2013. Marlon Byrd has actually faced him the most, with a 3-for-5 track record with a home run.

Go Reds!
