If not for his bullpen, the Reds' Johnny Cueto could be the second 10-game winner of the season. Instead, Cueto has five victories and the victim of five blown saves.
Accoding to Elias Sports Bureau, the five "blown wins" are the most of any starter in the big leagues.
Cueto, 5-1 with a 4.25 ERA, didn't have one of his better outings on Monday, allowing 10 hits and four runs in six innings and actually left the gmae down 4-3, but was lifted for pinch-hitter Miguel Cairo, whose two-out RBI single put him in line for the win.
The Giants, though, answered with two runs off of lefty Daniel Ray Herrera to take back the lead.
Cueto had notched victories in his last four outings.
