CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) – Rene Rivera hit the first of San Diego’s three homers, and Tyson Ross allowed three hits in seven innings on Thursday night, leading the Padres to a 6-1 victory and a split of their doubleheader with the Reds.

Johnny Cueto pitched a three-hitter for his second shutout in the opener of the day-night doubleheader, a 5-0 victory.

The Padres won their first series on the road this season, taking two of three. They have won five of their last six games, their best stretch of the season.

Ross (5-3) struck out eight and walked five in the second game, which made up for a rainout on Wednesday night. Rivera hit a two-run homer off left-hander Jeff Francis (0-1), who was called up to make his Reds debut.

In the opener, Cueto (4-2) lowered the majors’ best ERA to 1.25 with his third complete game of the season.
