Brandon Finnegan vs. Johnny Cueto

The Reds had a huge emotional victory yesterday afternoon, and now have the luxury of a 10-game homestand to build on the end of the road trip. The Reds have been significantly better at home so far this year.

Unfortunately for them, they face an old friend tonight in Johnny Cueto. Cueto makes his return to Cincinnati, and tonight should be a feel-good emotionally charged night for everyone. Cueto left on good terms, and has a personality that neutral fans can't help but root for, and tonight will have the bonus of allowing Reds fans to thank Cueto for his 6 great years here.

He'll face a guy he got traded for in Brandon Finnegan. Finny's coming off of a good start, and two good starts of his last three.

Go Reds!
