Should be an interesting pitching match-up this afternoon. Cueto probably has as much as case as Hill for having been unjustly left off the All-Star team, having apparently been a victim of the LaRussa-Reds spat. The D-backs know him very well, likely remembering his major-league debut, which came against Arizona - he held us to one hit over seven innings, with 10 strikeouts. The resulting Game Score of 81, remains the best for any first appearance in the majors since Jason Jennings threw a complete-game shutout on his debut in August 2001. Cueto has a 1.80 ERA against us, in four starts, though we haven't faced him in over three years. Still, not gonna be easy.

BattleMoses, having made his way through technological troubles, will be on the recap tonight, so check back for that after the game. Can we make it two in a row?
