PITTSBURGH, May 31 (UPI) -- Johnny Cueto, in his third start after five weeks on the disabled list, allowed one hit in eight innings Friday to carry Cincinnati over Pittsburgh 6-0.

Cueto (3-0) walked a batter and hit another in the first, but got out of that jam and did not give up a hit until Brandon Inge singled with one out in the fifth. Inge was promptly erased in a double play.

Cueto did not allow another batter to reach base and struck out six while throwing 106 pitches.

Jay Bruce and Brandon Phillips delivered the first two Cincinnati runs with solo homers in the fourth and sixth innings.

Phillips also scored on a wild pitch during a two-run eighth and the Reds benefited from two bases-loaded walks in the ninth.

Wandy Rodriguez (6-3) gave up both home runs in a seven-inning effort to take the loss. He had been trying to extend his personal winning streak to five straight starts.

Pittsburgh had won three in a row and nine out of 11.
