NL: Cueto notches Reds’ fifth shutout

Associated Press
PITTSBURGH ó Johnny Cueto limited the Pirates to four singles while striking out nine during eight dominating innings, and Ramon Hernandez drove in three runs to lead Cincinnati past Pittsburgh 5-0 on Sunday for another road series victory.
The Reds pitched shutouts in each of their two victories in the three-game series and now have won each of their four series on the road, where they are 9-4. Their five shutouts in 24 games lead the majors and are only one fewer than last season’s total.
Cueto (2-1) was in control from the start, striking out three of the first four batters he faced. He now has allowed two runs in 262/3 innings over his last four starts ó an 0.67 ERA that lowered his season’s ERA to 1.65.
Astros 7, Braves 5
ATLANTA ó Michael Bourn had three hits, including a seventh-inning single to drive in the go-ahead run, as the Astros beat the Braves and won a series in Atlanta for the first time in five years.
Bourn’s bunt single was the first of four straight hits for the Astros in a three-run sixth inning. He broke a 4-4 tie by driving in Geoff Blum with a single off Peter Moylan in the seventh.
Brewers 4, Diamondbacks 3
MILWAUKEE ó Prince Fielder and Mike Cameron hit back-to-back homers, and the Brewers beat the Diamondbacks to split their four-game series.
Cubs 6, Marlins 4
CHICAGO ó Derrek Lee hit a grand slam shortly after Cubs ace Carlos Zambrano hurt himself beating out a bunt single, and Chicago beat the Marlins.
Zambrano strained his left hamstring and left the game in the fifth inning. Lee connected four batters later for a 6-2 lead.
Giants 1, Rockies 0
SAN FRANCISCO ó Rich Aurilia drove in Steve Holm with a 10th-inning single to end a pitching-dominated afternoon with the Giants’ victory over the Rockies.
Dodgers 7, Padres 3
LOS ANGELES ó Chad Billingsley completed seven innings for the third straight start, Orlando Hudson drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and the Dodgers beat the Padres to set a franchise record for the best home winning streak to begin a season.
The 10-0 start at Chavez Ravine eclipsed the mark set at Ebbets Field by the 1946 Brooklyn Dodgers, when current manager Joe Torre was 5 years old.
