Listed Pitchers: Cueto / Wells
Reds: Cueto allowed three hits and a run over six innings at Atlanta on Sunday, striking out nine in the no-decision. He walked two and hit two batters, throwing 107 pitches in his second start since coming off the disabled list. Cueto got a victory against Pittsburgh on Aug. 31 to snap a six-game losing streak. He worked into the sixth in that game, the only run scoring on a homer to lead off that inning. Cueto gave up just two other hits and struck out five while walking one.
Cubs: Wells had another stellar outing on Sunday at Citi Field, holding the Mets to seven hits and two runs (one earned) in six innings. Wells’ start was foiled, however, by an unearned run in the sixth and a lack of run support. Wells is making his fourth start of the year against the Reds. He is 2-0 with a 2.70 ERA in the previous three, and the Cubs have won all three games. In his one home start against Cincinnati, Wells gave up three runs on seven hits in six innings. No current Reds player has an extra-base hit off Wells, though Brandon Phillips is 3-for-8 against him.

Listed Pitchers: Matusz / Burnett
Orioles: Matusz likely will be shut down following one of his next two starts. In his first season of professional baseball, Matusz climbed from Class A to Double-A before making the unexpected leap to Baltimore last month. He’s never thrown nearly as many as the 150 2/3 combined big league and Minor League innings he accumulated through Saturday’s 5-4 win against Texas. Matusz went seven solid innings against the Rangers, allowing three runs in the first and another run in the third before settling down to face the minimum over the final four innings. Matusz has thrown seven innings in each of his last two starts, with wins in three straight decisions.
Yankees: Burnett ended a four-game losing streak and a seven-start winless stretch by pitching six innings of one-run ball against the Rays. Burnett struck out eight and walked three, lowering his ERA to 4.19. Burnett, who had allowed six homers in his previous three starts entering Monday’s, kept the ball in the ballpark against Tampa Bay. In three starts against Baltimore this season, Burnett is 2-0 with a 5.09 ERA. In his career vs. the Orioles, Burnett sports a 9-1 record despite a 5.00 ERA. He allowed six runs on 11 hits in 5 1/3 innings Sept. 1 in Baltimore.

Listed Pitchers: Morrow / Millwood
Mariners: It is back to the future for the right-hander, who rejoins the rotation after spending the past two months at Triple-A Tacoma rebuilding his arm strength. He made 10 starts for the division champion Rainiers, winning four of his final five decisions, and five overall. After starting the season in the bullpen, Morrow made six starts with the Mariners between June 13 and July 10. Three of his four losses this season were administered by the Rangers, but two of those came in save situations. He has a 14.39 ERA against Texas this season. Opposing hitters have been especially tough on him during the first 15 pitches he throws this season, batting .354 (35-for-99) on those pitches.
Rangers: Millwood, after losing to the Orioles, 5-4, on Saturday, is 2-4 with a 5.92 ERA in his last 11 starts. He is 1-1 with a 6.08 ERA in two starts against the Mariners this year and 8-10 with a 6.08 ERA in his career against them. He is 24-19 in 63 games, including 61 starts, in September. He is 7-2 with a 2.83 ERA in 13 starts at home this season.

Listed Pitchers: Davis / Beckett
Rays: Rays manager Joe Maddon said Davis could not have had a better Major League debut, and the Tigers would probably agree. The 6-foot-5 right-hander lived up to the hype that has followed him since he was a third-round selection in the 2004 First-Year Player Draft in his first career start on Sunday. He struck out the first four hitters he faced — a feat that’s only been done two other times since 1962. He finished with nine punchouts in seven innings and allowed just three hits and one run. If not for the Rays bullpen losing the lead, it would have been a storybook beginning to Davis’ career.
Red Sox: Beckett bounced back from a recent string of subpar outings on Monday by hurling seven innings of three-run ball in a hard-luck loss to the White Sox. The flamethrowing righty scattered six hits and struck out four, but he was outdueled by Chicago’s Mark Buehrle and remains winless since Aug. 12. In four starts against the Rays this season, Beckett is 1-1 with a 5.70 ERA and a 32:9 strikeout-to-walk ratio.
