Description: Reds starter Johnny Cueto pitched his worse start since May 20, allowing six runs in five and 2/3 innings and losing to the Cubs, 7-0, on Tuesday.
Insight: Cueto obviously did not have his control as he struck out eight but also walked five batters, a season high. To put things in prespective, Cueto walked just seven batters in six starts during the month of May. He is still in the Cy Young conversation, even though Clayton Kershaw is the clear leader, at 18-9 with 2.33 ERA, 228 strikeouts and 0.98 WHIP.

Insight: Cueto has a 1.43 ERA and a 0.73 WHIP this season, but he's received very little run support. The right-hander is obviously due for some regression -- he has a .160 BABIP and a 99.5 LOB% -- but he's still an excellent starter who has a 9.71 K/9 and a 2.29 BB/9.
