The Reds travel to the Big Apple to take on the struggling New York Metropolitans in a 3-game tilt starting tonight. The Reds will be looking to rebound from yesterday’s crushing defeat at the hands of the Phillies by beating up on the Mets. As Richard stated in the series preview, hopefully “the Reds can right the ship by taking the first two from an overmatched New York club before having to deal with young Harvey in the Wednesday matinee.”
In order to take game 1 tonight, the Reds will call on and welcome the return of Johnny Cueto to the mound. Cueto was looking like his normal self through the first 2+ starts of the season until an arm injury has sidelined him since April 13. We have all anxioiusly awaited for his return to the rotation but I’m sure we’ll all be holding our collective breaths with each torque, twist, and pitch Cueto makes tonight. I am optimistic the Cueto we see tonight will be the same as the one we are accustomed to seeing.
It’s game 1 of Reds versus Mets. Cheer on the guys in red to GO! Discuss the game here…
A simple Reds fan from a simple town. I have been a Reds fan all my life. The 1990 team was crowned Champions during my prime youth years and I grew up idolizing Chris Sabo all the way down to the flat top hair style and the #17. I have passed that love of the Reds down to my three boys who love the game and the Reds just as much as I do! Follow me on twitter @CoachWilson17
