Game 67, Reds at Mariners
And what will the Reds fans do now that Griffey is gone?
Lee vs. Cueto, 7:05 pm PDT
SS Josh Wilson
Jose Lopez, our #4 hitter is batting .231/.242/.354 this month, with most of his hits coming in the early part of June. I am strangely numb to such revelations about our lineup. That Carp is hitting ahead of Saunders just seems funny to me at this point. Hey, Divish says we could activate Sweeney if he feels good after batting practice tonight. Baseball!
Cueto is better than his ERA would lead you to believe. This year, he’s cut the rate at which he’s been giving up home runs to three-quarters what it was last season. He’s also striking out more and giving up fewer walks. Sure, he’s no Cliff Lee, but a pitcher doesn’t have to be to get through our hitters.
