The Cincinnati Reds face the Atlanta Braves in the second game of their three game series at Turner Field in Atlanta. Johnny Cueto will go on the mound against the Braves. Cueto has not been given the recognition other pitchers have, but he has had one of the best starts of any pitcher in baseball. Cueto is 4-0 on the season with an ERA of just 1.12. He leads the National League in ERA. Cueto has only allowed a total of six earned runs over the seven starts he has had this season.

He pitched seven innings of shutout ball against Milwaukee last week, but left with no decision in a 2-1 Cincinnati win. Cueto will come into tonight’s game with a scoreless streak of 12-innings and has given up just a single run over his last three games.

One Braves hitter, Martin Prado has had career success against Cueto. Prado has 3 hits in 9 at bats against Cueto, including a homer. Prado over his last six games overall, is hitting .386.

Tim Hudson will go for the Braves tonight. Hudson is 1-1 on the season with an ERA of 4.50. He hopes he gets support in this game since the last time he pitched he gave up a single run over seven innings, but received the loss 1-0. In six starts lifetime against Cincinnati, Hudson is 3-1 with an ERA of 3.19.

Freedie Freeman, the first baseman for the Braves will be questionable for the game. He left Monday’s loss with blurred vision during the seventh innings. He is leading the team with six homers, but is hitless in his career against Cincinnati starter Cueto.

The line has the Braves as the favorite at -115 with the Reds at +105. The run total is sitting at 7. The Reds will take this game behind a solid pitching performance from Cueto who will increase his record to 5-0. Take Cincinnati to win and the total to end UNDER.
