This is truly a battle of right handed power pitchers looking for a bounce back. I think it'll be our guy who comes out on top.

MMP has not been a good place for the young Cueto as he sports a lifetime (ok, only two starts) split of a 10.38 ERA in 8.2 IP. He hasn't had his best starts in Houston, so let's hope he continues that (meaningless, statistically) trend. That way we can get a repeat of the above photo.
