Reds Head Home After Sweep in Oakland

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Johnny Cueto pitched shutout ball into

the eighth inning, Jay Bruce had an early two-run single on the way

to his second straight three-hit game and the Cincinnati Reds

earned a sweep of the Oakland Athletics with a 3-0 win Wednesday.

The Reds salvaged a .500 road trip after losing all three at

Seattle over the weekend.

Cueto (7-2) retired the first seven batters of the game before

Mark Ellis doubled to shallow right with one out in the third.

Cueto responded well after losing 1-0 to Cliff Lee and the Mariners

on Friday at Safeco Field.
