The Reds close out a miserable August in style, with a day/night doubleheader against Pittsburgh today. Game one is this afternoon, then the teams will hook up again at 7:10 pm.
Kip Wells pitches the first game; Johnny Cueto will throw in the nightcap. Am I the only one who wishes the Reds would just shut Cueto down for the year? Why pitch him in these meaningless games?
Oh well, Dusty Baker and Walt Jocketty know more than I do.
Discuss both games here. (Game 1 lineup below the fold.)
