After watching Johnny Cueto dominate the Minnesota Twins on Saturday, host Cincinnati turns to Mike Leake in the rubber game of the three-game series. Cueto tossed seven shutout innings as the Reds snapped a season-high four-game losing streak and remained one game ahead of Pittsburgh in the NL Central. Minnesota has lost seven of its last 10 games after starting June with a 7-3 record.
The Twins’ Joe Mauer went 1-for-4 Saturday in his first start since June 17. Mauer, who had been out with a bruised right thigh, got the start at first base while Justin Morneau was given a day off. Morneau is hitting .236 and is just 3-for-14 in his last four games. The Reds are expected to get CF Drew Stubbs (oblique) back on Monday after he plays in three rehab games for Class A Dayton. Chris Heisey has received most of the starts in center field in place of Stubbs, who was batting .235 with seven homers and 13 stolen bases before his injury.
