Result: Loss

*3 Star MLB Play of the Day* The Houston Astros have been absolutely horrible on the road this year. They won the first game of this three-game set with the Reds, but the Reds won yesterday. I fully expect the Reds to take care of business in this matchup Sunday. Cincinnati has Ace Johnny Cueto on the hill here. Cueto has been dominating during the daytime this year. Cueto is 17-7 wuth a 2.58 ERA overall. During the day, he is 11-1 with a 1.87 ERA. Edgar Gonzalez pitches for the Astros. Gonzalez has bounced around the minors for years, and he doesn't have overpowering stuff. The Reds lineup is solid, and they are a good defensive team. Houston is 9-42 in their last 51 road games. The Reds are 8-0 in Cueto's last 8 Sunday starts. This is a mismatch. Take the Reds -1.5.
