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.
