Perhaps he's getting a little tired and needs a break. If it was me I'd consider skipping his start in San Diego (letting LeCure have the start) and give him a good long rest through the break and let him come out fresh and ready to shut down the Cards at home.
Cueto has given up 6 runs in 13 innings. But if you look at it. One scored when the ball bounced away from Hanigan on a throw home. One scored when Frazier clearly misplayed the ball in left. And one scored when they had the runner dead-to-rights at home on a squeeze.
Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!
