You’ll have to forgive me as this might be a little bit premature to say, but Johnny Cueto is a total stud.
In his Major League debut this afternoon, Cueto took the Diamondbacks to school. He went 7 innings, gave up one hit, one run, and had 10 Ks and 0 walks (his control was amamzing, 68 of his 92 pitches were strikes). You gotta love a guy who goes after hitters like Cueto does.
Cueto left after 7 and ol’ Stormy Weathers came in and promptly got on his knees in an attempt to blow the game. Three walks later, Lincoln came in and after a sac fly that made the score 3-2 Reds, got Chris Young to strike out for the fourth time today.
The Reds new closer Francisco Cordero came in to nail down the 9th.
Reds are now 2-1 and stay at home this weekend for a four game series with the Phillies that starts Friday.
