Just when the Cincinnati Reds thought the past week couldn't get any worse, they were sadly mistaken. Ace Johnny Cueto left last nights game in the second inning and they were shutout for the second consecutive night in a 4-0 loss to the Texas Rangers.
After finding a place on the disabled list twice this season, Cueto may find himself on it yet again after leaving in the second inning last night with tightness in his right lat.
"It is discouraging for him, and us," Dusty Baker said. "We'll just have to go back to the drawing board."
"I went from sitting on the bench just hanging out to, 'Hey, you're in the game.' I didn't have a warmup before the game," Cingrani said. "I just went out and started throwing."
"When you're not scoring runs over a period of time, everybody looks great against you," Baker said. "This whole streak, it's the first time we've seen a lot of pitchers."
