Doug Fister dominates again to win his fourth consecutive start as the Nats beat the Reds 4-2.
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.
Tanner Roark won the final spot in Washington's rotation during spring training. Halfway through the season, he's the Nationals' top winner.
Tanner Roark became Washington's first 10-game winner with a 4-1 victory over the Reds.
With a depleted lineup, Washington missed out on a sweep of the Rockies Wednesday afternoon in Denver. Read more here.
Strasburg (7-8) settled in after a shaky start, giving up four runs — three of which were in the first — and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings.
With a chance to pick up yet another series victory, the Nationals turned to Gio Gonzalez, who had been dominant over the last few weeks.

With the Battle of the Beltways shifting to Camden Yards, the Nationals must decide whether to use Ryan Zimmerman (or someone else) as their designated hitter.
I'm not going to argue the merits of the Strasburg shutdown yet again. But often overlooked in all the debate about Strasburg was the fact that this was the recovery plan the organization came up with for the pitcher who preceded Strasburg in the surgery and recovery path — and has made two All-Star teams since returning.
After fighting through an offensive stalemate for much of the game, a late Ryan Zimmerman hit lifted Washington over Chicago, 2-1, on Sunday at Nationals Park.
The Nationals will have the same positional players starting for a fifth straight game. The batting order against the Cubs, that's a bit different. So is Chicago's starting pitching after a blockbuster trade.
