Reds stumble into playoffs

The Cincinnati Reds lost their last five games of the season. What does that mean? Well, it certainly stopped them from winning the Central Division. And by losing to the Pirates two out of three and getting swept by the Pittsburgh Pirates, they now must play a one game playoff with them in Pittsburgh. Not exactly momentum building.

Okay, so who starts for the Reds? Johnny Cueto. What? He's coming off an injury. One lost game and you're done. What about Mat Latos? Reds manager Dusty Baker better know what he's doing. UPDATE. It's being reported that Mat Latos has a bone chip in his right elbow. He won't pitch at the Wild Card playoff game. If the Reds win, Latos can pitch on Thursday.
