JOHNNY CUETO SHINES IN REDS’ WIN AGAINST ARIZONA
Fri, 31 Aug 2012 02:30 AM EDT

Johnny Cueto leads the majors in wins and has his sights set even higher.

Cueto scattered four hits over 7 innings for his 17th victory and the Reds beat the slumping Diamondbacks 5-2 on Tuesday night.

”All I’m able to guarantee is to try to keep going because I’d like to win 20 games,” Cueto recounted through a translator. ”I felt better as the game went on. I was ready to gather more strength and continue.”

Cueto (17-4) gave up 2 runs, struck out one and walked 5 for his 8th victory in 9 decisions. The right-hander reduced his National League-leading ERA to 2.48.

”He’s feeling it each time he goes out there,” Reds manager Dusty Baker said.

Ryan Hanigan hit a 2-run single and Todd Frazier added a 2-run single for the Reds, who won for the 3rd time in 4 games and stretched their lead in the National League Central to 7 games over St. Louis.

Jonathan Broxton pitched the 8th and Aroldis Chapman closed it out for his 33rd save and 25th straight, tied with Texas reliever Joe Nathan for the longest active streak in the majors.

Wade Miley (14-9) allowed 3 runs and 7 hits over 7 innings. He walked one and struck out 5 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who have lost 5 straight and 7 of 9.

”The 1st couple of innings everything was up,” Miley said. ”I was able to make the adjustment, but it didn’t work out.”

Arizona opened a 1-0 lead in the 1st when Gerardo Parra doubled, went to 3rd on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jason Kubel.

But the Reds rallied in the 2nd and flipped the momentum with a long at-bat.

Frazier led off the inning with a single and Miley got before Scott Rolen 1-2. Rolen then fouled off 2 pitches, took a ball, fouled off 2 more, took a 3rd ball and fouled off 5 pitches in a row before drawing a 15-pitch walk.

”I’d have rather singled on the 1st pitch,” Rolen said.

Baker thought the battle affected Arizona Diamondbacks’ rookie left-hander.

”That took an entire inning out of him,” Baker recounted. ”Foul off a pitch, foul off a pitch – he was trying everything. That takes a lot out of a pitcher.”

Chris Heisey singled to load the bases and Frazier scored on a wild pitch before Hanigan lined a 2-run single to center for a 3-1 lead.

John McDonald reached on a fielder’s choice and scored on a double to left by Parra in the 5th to tug the Diamondbacks to 3-2.

Frazier tripled home Brandon Phillips and Ryan Ludwick in the 8th against Matt Lindstrom, who was making his Arizona debut after being traded from Baltimore for Joe Saunders on Sunday. Baseball betting lines

”We were just up the one run so that small cushion was helpful,” Frazier expounded.
