Giants RHP Cueto seeking bounce-back effort versus Braves

SAN FRANCISCO -- The injury-plagued San Francisco Giants hope they can put one potential issue behind them when Johnny Cueto takes the mound to face the Atlanta Braves in the finale of a three-game series on Sunday afternoon.

Cueto is coming off a career-worst, three-home run allowance against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday, an effort the veteran blamed on a second blister that had sprouted on his right hand during a between-starts session in St. Louis.

Cueto had been expected to help fill the void created by Madison Bumgarner's separated shoulder. But after winning four of his first six starts, he hasn't won any of his last four, including the most recent two in which he's been pounded for nine runs and 13 hits in 12 innings.
