May 4, 2012 at 10:24 PM   |   Comments

PITTSBURGH, May 4 (UPI) -- Johnny Cueto gave up seven hits while going the distance Friday, carrying the Cincinnati Reds to a 6-1 victory over Pittsburgh.

It was the fifth complete game in Cueto's five-year career. Three of the route-going performances came last year when he compiled a 9-5 record in 24 starts.

Cueto (4-0) struck out four and did not walk a batter while throwing 110 pitches.

He was backed up by a 12-hit attack that included solo homers from Zack Cozart and Drew Stubbs in the seventh and another from Jay Bruce in the eighth.

Kevin Correia (1-2) was charged with the loss after giving up five runs on nine hits in seven innings.

The Reds have won back-to-back games and the Pirates have dropped three out of four.
