Reds 1, Nationals 0

CINCINNATI — Johnny Cueto struck out nine in seven innings and Brayan Pena singled through a drawn-in infield for the only run, helping the Reds end a seven-game skid. Cincinnati ended its longest losing streak in five years by getting several good defensive plays and another dominating performance by its All-Star starter. Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched out of a two-on, two-out threat in the eighth and struck out a batter for the 43rd straight appearance, the longest streak by a reliever since 1900.
