Cueto, Reds shut down Pirates 6-0

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Johnny Cueto allowed one hit over eight dominant innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-0 on Friday night.

Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips hit solo home runs off for the Reds, who cooled of the Pirates behind their ace. Cueto (3-0) struck out six and walked one to improve to 13-4 against Pittsburgh.

Wandy Rodriguez (6-3) kept the Pirates in it even though he struggled with his command. The left-hander surrendered five hits and walked three with five strikeouts in seven innings.

The Reds broke things open with four runs off Pittsburgh reliever Mike Zagurski, a rare hiccup by baseball's best bullpen through the first third of the season as the two rivals moved into a second-place tie behind St. Louis in the NL Central at 34-21.
