Raise hell, Raisel!
This game will have all the relevant feels to see Johnny Cueto back in Cincinnati, but it's a different former Red that'll actually get the ball tonight. Edinson Volquez makes his first start in Cincinnati since 2012, when he gave up 5 runs in 5 innings as a member of the Padres. That was a few teams ago for The Wagon, but it's worth mentioning that 5 of his 6 career starts against the Reds have been home starts, so this is still relatively uncharted territory. He's got a 4.84 ERA in those starts, but has been markedly better than that this year.
Raisel Iglesias gets the ball for Cincinnati, who's quietly putting together a nice August. He's 3-for-3 in quality starts this month, but didn't start against the Royals when these teams played in Kansas City. He did come out of the 'pen though, so hopefully he'll have a good feel for their hitters.
