Johnny Cueto fanned nine in seven innings on Saturday, and Brayan Pena singled through a drawn-in infield for the only run, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 1-0 victory over the Washington Nationals that ended a seven-game losing streak.
Cueto tossed seven scoreless innings, striking out nine to lower his ERA to a 2.08. The Reds right-hander was aided by some questionable base running on the Nationals' part, most notably by Bryce Harper.
The Arizona Diamondbacks struggled at the plate and starter Brandon McCarthy had a second straight shaky outing.
Unsatisfied after a pair of losses, Johnny Cueto told his teammates he would pitch well against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Just get me two runs, he told them.
As each 1-2-3 inning went by for the Cincinnati Reds against Hyun-Jin Ryu, the urgency to get someone on base became more intense.
The Reds can't even score a run off Adam Wainwright, a pitcher they pummeled last season. And two months of wasted chances overall are starting to get under their skin.
Adam Wainwright won 19 games last season and finished second in the NL Cy Young voting. So far, his encore is even better.
How much difference does a good leadoff man make? For Denard Span and the Nationals, a whole lot.
Johnny Cueto was having a season of such historic proportions that it was totally unrealistic to expect him to keep up the pace.
Denard Span was at his disruptive best, getting three hits off the major's top pitcher and forcing a pair of throwing errors Tuesday night to lead the Washington Nationals to a 9-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds.
A Nationals lineup that has struggled against right-handers this season has to face MLB's best pitcher to date in 2014: Johnny Cueto. Get live updates on Nats Insider!
Ian Kennedy wasn't very sharp on a cool afternoon with no margin for error.
Two shutouts. Three complete games. Best ERA in the majors. A start to the season unlike any other in more than 100 years.
Held to three hits in the opener of a doubleheader, the Padres had a season-high three homers to gain a split and keep their momentum going.
Johnny Cueto got an extra day of rest before he tries to extend his amazing streak of starts.
"In the first inning, I didn't feel like I was ready," Cueto said. "I felt slow. I was a little down on myself. After that, everything clicked in and I was all right."
"I never think too much about those things," Cueto said, with assistant trainer Tomas Vera interpreting. "That was 2013."
