MI -- Cincinnati lost its second in a row to the Marlins, 6-4, Saturday night as Johnny Cueto's September struggles continued.
In three outings, Cueto has surrendered 16 runs on 26 hits in just 15 1/3 innings.
The Reds currently sit 11 games in front of the Cardinals in the National League Central, and their magic number to clinch the division improved to six with the Cardinals' 4-3 loss to the Dodgers.
Mat Latos, who graduated from nearby Coconut Creek High School and attended Broward Community College, looks to avoid the sweep. The 24-year-old right-hander is 7-2 with a 2.56 ERA in his past 15 starts.
To calculate a team's magic number, take the number of games it has remaining and add one. Then subtract the difference in the number of losses between that team and its closest pursuer.
A tiebreaker game will be played to determine a division winner, even if the tied clubs are assured of participating in the postseason. If a division championship tiebreaker is necessary, the head-to-head record between the clubs will determine home-field advantage. If the head-to-head record is tied, then the division record will be the next tiebreaker.
If two clubs are tied for the two Wild Card berths, home-field advantage will be determined by the head-to-head record between the clubs. If the head-to-head record is tied, then the division record will be the next tiebreaker.
