Reds over Pirates- The Pittsburgh Pirates return to the post season for the first time in 21 years and have just secured home field advantage for this game with a three-game sweep in Cincinnati. The winner here will face the Cardinals in round 2. The Reds were to start Mat Lotos but elbow problems have them turning to Johnny Cueto (5-2, 2.82 ERA) who himself has had only two starts off his injury. The Pirates will start Francisco Liriano (16-8, 3.02) who has a 8-1 record at home with a 1.47 ERA. Impressive numbers but they are balanced by Cueto lifetime 13-4 with a 2.37 ERA in 21 career starts against Pittsburgh. Take CINCINNATI!
