Reds 4, Pirates 1

PITTSBURGH, Pa. (AP) – Johnny Cueto tossed his second three-hitter against Pittsburgh in a week and the Reds eased past the struggling Pirates 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Cueto (2-2) struck out four and walked three while running his career-long scoreless streak to 21 innings before giving up a home run to Andrew McCutchen with one out in the ninth. He improved to 15-4 in his career against the Pirates and became the first Cincinnati pitcher to toss consecutive complete games since Mat Latos did it in June 2012.

Brayan Pena and Zack Cozart had consecutive RBI hits off Edinson Volquez (1-1) in the seventh to provide all the offense Cueto needed.

Volquez allowed two runs and five hits with a walk and three strikeouts.
