Yankees Game Preview 7/20: vs. Cincinnati Reds

The New York Yankees and the Cincinnati Reds will play in the finale of their three game weekend set at Yankee Stadium this afternoon in what should be a pitchers duel. The Yankees will send Hiroki Kuroda to the mound to face off with the Reds ace Johnny Cueto. The game will be played at 1:05 pm ET and can be seen on the YES Network, MLB TV, and can be heard on the radio with John Sterling and Suzyn Waldman on WFAN.

Kuroda has had a roller coaster of a season but was sharp his last time out pitching seven innings and allowing two runs against the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees lost the game in 11 innings but Kuroda will look to build on his performance. Kuroda should be sharp as he will be on eight days rest this afternoon.

Cueto pitched the Sunday before the All Star Game and got his 10th win of the season over the Pittsburgh Pirates. Cueto pitched 6.1 innings and allowed three runs on five hits holding down a hot and impressive Pirates offense. Cueto has been impressive against the Yankees in his career and owns a 2-1 record with 1.89 ERA in three starts against New York.
