Cingrani strikes out 4 in 1 inning for Reds
CINCINNATI 5, WASHINGTON 2

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Tony Cingrani struck out a career-high 11 -
including four in one inning - while pitching two-hit ball
through the sixth, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Washington
Nationals 5-2 Sunday to avoid a four-game sweep.



Brandon Phillips had a two-run single as the Reds (14-12)
improved to a major league-worst 2-9 on the road.



Cingrani (2-0) pitched three perfect innings before Denard Span
reached base to lead off the fourth - on a strikeout and wild
pitch. Danny Espinosa followed with a double, but Cingrani
struck out three more hitters to escape the inning without
allowing any runs.



In doing so, Cingrani joined Joe Nuxhall, Mario Soto, Tim
Birtsas and Frankie Rodriguez as the only Reds with a
four-strikeout inning.



Cingrani also became the first Cincinnati rookie to strike out
10 in a game since Johnny Cueto struck out 10 San Diego Padres
on July 22, 2008, and the first left-handed Cincinnati rookie to
do so since since Dennys Reyes struck out 12 Pittsburgh Pirates
on August 20, 1998.



The Reds, who had one hit in each of the series' first two
games, found enough offense Sunday to lead from the first inning
onward.



Cincinnati had four infield singles, and not only did No. 9
hitter Cingrani and No. 8 hitter Corky Miller score after their
infield hits, Miller scored on an infield hit by Zack Cozart.



Joey Votto provided the Reds' only extra-base hit, a
first-inning double that set the stage for Phillips' two-run
single.



Nationals catcher Kurt Suzuki doubled in the seventh, scoring
Ian Desmond. Desmond then doubled in the eighth to score Bryce
Harper, who walked in a 10-pitch plate appearance.



Ross Detwiler (1-2) allowed three earned runs in five innings,
and his 11 hits allowed matched a career high.



Aroldis Chapman earned his fifth save in five opportunities.



NOTES: Reds RF Jay Bruce, who had hit fifth in each of
Cincinnati's first 25 games, dropped to sixth in the lineup. The
team's normal No. 6 hitter, 3B Todd Frazier, moved up to fifth.
"Things change during the course of the season," Reds manager
Dusty Baker said. "We are in a production business." Bruce had
two hits Sunday, and Frazier had one. ... Washington 1B Adam
LaRoche is 0 for his last 26. He struck out thrice Sunday,
including once with the bases loaded. Half his at-bats in the
skid have now ended in strikeouts. ... Nationals reliever Henry
Rodriguez walked Miller in the eighth inning on a pitch that
caromed so hard off the backstop, the ball nearly hit Rodriguez
on the mound. . The Nationals and Reds completed their season
series Sunday. Washington won three of seven. ... Basketball
Hall of Famers Elgin Baylor and Dave Bing and Pro Football Hall
of Famer Willie Wood were among 10 members inducted before the
game into the Washington D.C. Sports Hall of Fame. ...
Washington RHP Stephen Strasburg (1-4, 3.16) will face Braves
RHP Julio Teheran (1-0, 5.48) on Monday in Atlanta. ...
Cincinnati RHP Mat Latos (1-0, 2.16) will face Cardinals RHP
Adam Wainwright (4-1) on Monday in St. Louis.
