Breaking Down The Giants' Game 3 WinBreaking Down The Giants' Game 3 WinBaseball Tonight break down the Giants' win over the Reds in game 3.Tags: MLB, San Francisco Giants, Cincinnati RedsWith right-hander Johnny Cueto ruled out of Game 4 of the NLDS, the Cincinnati Reds have decided to start Mike Leake, a source told ESPN's Bob Holtzman on Wednesday.
Mat Latos had been an option to start against San Francisco Giants starter Barry Zito, but he pitched four innings of relief in Game 1. He replaced Cueto who threw just eight pitches before leaving with what initially was called back spasms but has since been described by the team as a mild right oblique strain.
Electing to start Leake means Cueto will be removed from the team's roster and can't return until the World Series, should the Reds advance that far.
