The Cincinnati Reds have listed Johnny Cueto as their starter in tomorrow night’s one-game playoff against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Mat Latos was originally expected to pitch the game, but now he is on schedule to pitch in game-one of the NLDS against the Cardinals, if the Reds win tomorrow.
Cueto has been pretty good against the Pirates this year, but the Pirates will send out Francisco Liriano tomorrow. Liriano has dominated the Reds the Reds this year, but has not picked up a win against them.
The Pirates and Reds really both have a 50/50 shot. The Pirates are playing better baseball right now, and it will be a home game for them, but it’s baseball, and as Reds fans, we know, anything can happen on the diamond.
Tomorrow’s game between the Pirates and Reds will begin at 8:07 PM ET and will be televised on TBS.
