Johnny Cueto SP CIN 4 Days

Cueto (18-8) delivered yet another dominant outing Thursday against the Cardinals, striking out seven and allowing just three hits and a walk over eight shutout innings.

Cueto ended up on the winning end of a pitchers' duel with Lance Lynn, who went the distance for the Cards. Even with the presence of Clayton Kershaw, Cueto should be in serious consideration for the Cy Young Award; although Kershaw's rate stats are (amazingly) significantly better than Cueto's spectacular 2.15 ERA and 0.96 WHIP, Cueto has pitched an MLB-leading 222 innings (45 more than Kershaw). He'll look to keep making his case Tuesday against the Cubs.

Cueto struck out eight and walked two while giving up one run on six hits over seven innings Saturday to pick up his 17th win of the season.

In a season where plenty has gone wrong for the Reds, Cueto's return as the team's ace has been a bright spot. He'll look for win No. 18 in his next start Thursday against the Cardinals.

Cueto dropped to 15-8 on Tuesday, giving up three runs over 6.1 innings and striking out eight batters in the loss to the Cubs.

Cueto was victimized by home runs from Anthony Rizzo and Arismendy Alcantara, while the Cubs staff held the Cincinnati offense to just three hits on the night. The right-hander has now taken losses in consecutive outings, but he's otherwise remained right behind the Dodgers' Clayton Kershaw in the race for the NL Cy Young award due to his sparkling 2.26 ERA.

Cueto lasted just five innings, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four batters before picking up his seventh loss (15-7) of the year in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

Wednesday's outing was a rare hiccup for Cueto, as this was the first time in 14 starts he allowed more than three earned runs in a game. With a 2.24 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 191:53 K:BB ratio in 192.2 innings pitched, Cueto is as good as they come. His next start is scheduled for Tuesday at home against the Cubs.

This was Cueto's fourth complete game of the season and snaps a 10-game losing streak for the Reds at Progressive Field. Cinci's ace has been a steady source of wins for his owners lately, as he's gone 7-1 over his last nine starts and owns a tidy 2.04 ERA with an even better 0.91 WHIP. Cueto will close out a three-game set against the Marlins at home Sunday.
