For the Reds it’ll be Homer Bailey in Game 3

Johnny Cueto only threw eight pitches in Game 1 of the NLDS on Saturday because of back spasms. Because of the nearly non-outing, there was hope that he could come back to pitch Game 3.  That’s not happening, though: last night Dusty Baker announced that it would be Homer Bailey.

The Reds are being cautious with Cueto, wanting to make sure that he doesn’t have another short, bullpen-taxing outing.  Also at work here: the luxury of having a two-game lead in a five-game series allowing the Reds this extra room to operate.

Oh, and of course the guy who will be getting the ball threw a no-hitter ten days ago, so there’s that.

    These were some of the best games we have played in a while. Complete…..great pitching, defense, and hitting. As a Reds fan, we couldn’t be any more excited right now! GO HOMER!
