Tyson Ross pitched his first career shutout and received some rare run support from the San Diego Padres, who came through with a 3-0 victory over the Cincinnati Reds to earn their first series sweep of the season.

Ross (7-8) limited the Reds to three hits -- two of which came after the sixth inning -- and struck out nine without a walk in a dominant performance that carried San Diego to its fourth straight win, matching a season high.

The Padres had mustered a paltry one run with Ross on the hill during his last five starts, which spanned a total of 32 innings, but put up three with one swing when Rene Rivera cleared the bases with a single in the bottom of the first.

Johnny Cueto (8-6) kept San Diego off the board over the remainder of his seven-inning stint and notched eight strikeouts in a hard-luck loss for the inconsistent Reds, who had won four straight at NL West-leading San Francisco prior to dropping all three matchups of this set.
