Career stats

Iglesias showed some decreased velocity in his last start vs. the Mets. Instead of being in the low-to-mid 90s, he settled more into the high 80s, low 90s. He said it was his intent vs. New York, because he was focusing more on hitting his spots.

This could be an emotional start for Cueto, who spent most of his previous eight Major League seasons with the Reds before they traded him to Kansas City. Cueto, coming off his 100th career win, went 92-63 with Cincinnati.

Finnegan got a no-decision after he took a shutout into the 7th vs. the Mets Tuesday. But he was smarting when a fastball to Yoenis Cespedes tailed out over the plate and was crushed for a game-tying homer. Until then, it was another strong outing.
