Johnny Cueto was pulled from the Cincinnati Reds' division series roster Wednesday, hours before his scheduled start in Game 4 against the San Francisco Giants. After throwing just eight pitches, Cueto left Game 1 of the series with pulled muscles in his side. Wednesday's move also means that the Reds will be without their 19-game winner for the National League championship series, should they make it that far. “It was a very, very tough decision to make," General Manager Walt Jocketty said.

Johnny Cueto had thrown only eight pitches in the Cincinnati Reds' National League division series opener against the San Francisco Giants when back spasms forced him to leave the game. The Reds ace, who went 19-9 this season, had the shortest postseason start since Atlanta's John Thomson threw four pitches in Game 3 of the 2004 NL division series before leaving with a sore muscle in his left side. Like Thomson, Cueto retired one batter before leaving the game. He appeared to have possibly aggravated something while stopping in mid-motion when batter Angel Pagan called timeout during his at-bat.

The New York Mets suspended four-time All-Star reliever Francisco Rodriguez for two games Thursday after his arrest on suspicion of assaulting his 53-year-old father-in-law inside the Mets' ballpark. He was released without bail Thursday after his arraignment on misdemeanor charges of assault and harassment that could result in up to a year in jail, the Queens County District Attorney's office said in a statement. Rodriguez was taken into custody at Citi Field after Wednesday's game.

The Dodgers hope to emerge from their recent slump, and quell their growing frustration, when left-hander Ted Lilly goes against the Houston Astros on Friday night in the opener of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Lilly has a 7-2 career record and 2.30 earned-run average against Houston, which has baseball's worst record at 25-45. The Astros have lost eight of their last 10 games, but the Dodgers (31-39) have fared little better, losing seven of their last 10, including a three-game sweep by the Cincinnati Reds this week.

If pitching is 90% of the game, then a number of teams went into the season's second half with a starting rotation that gives them an arm up on the competition. Others? Well, not so much. The team / The pitch No arms limitations here 1. Philadelphia A baseball-best 11 complete games, 13 shutouts and 2.93 earned-run average. 2. Seattle: Rotation has two All-Stars, AL-low 3.19 ERA and is averaging baseball-best 62/3 innings a start. 3. Atlanta: Jair Jurrjens (12-3, 1.87)

Perhaps it was a coincidence. But the Dodgers' offensive breakout in an 8-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night was probably linked to the comeback of one particular player. The player? Johnny Cueto, the hard-throwing Reds right-hander who returned from a league-sanctioned exile for his role in a bench-clearing brawl and pitched like someone who hadn't pitched in 11 days. What about Manny Ramirez, you ask? Well, Ramirez was back too, activated from his third stint on the disabled list to begin what is probably his final act with the Dodgers.

Philadelphia 3, at Milwaukee 1: Pat Burrell's two-out, two-run double on an 0-2 count broke a tie in the eighth inning. Burrell ran his RBI total to 25, best in the major leagues. He has reached base in 21 straight games. Houston 5, at Cincinnati 3: Lance Berkman had a two-run homer and a run-scoring double off rookie Johnny Cueto, whose 96-mph fastball wasn't enough to slow the Astros, who have won five in a row.

Josh Hamilton played for the Reds for one season, but he could leave quite a legacy in Cincinnati, as the central figure in two of the best deals of this decade. Hamilton languished for years in the Rays' system, sabotaging his career with substance abuse, limited to 23 games above Class A, and yet the Reds acquired him in the Rule 5 draft before last season. He was a feel-good story. He hit .
