Reds ace Johnny Cueto and Twins rookie Trevor May will take the mound in the three-game season series finale on Wednesday at Great American Ball Park. First pitch is at 12:35 p.m. ET after the two teams waited out a two-hour, one-minute rain delay Tuesday night before Minnesota evened the set.
Cueto gave up only two hits over six innings in his last start on Friday, but three straight two-out walks, including one with the bases loaded, scored the winning run for the Mets. He pitched on eight days' rest after he was pushed back from his originally scheduled start on June 23 to give his previous injured elbow more rest.
