Reds 6, Astros 1
HOUSTON — Johnny Cueto pitched five scoreless innings in his return from the disabled list and Zack Cozart homered and drove in four runs for the Reds. Pitching for the first time since straining the muscle below his right shoulder June 28, Cueto, Cincinnati's opening day starter the past two seasons, helped the Reds move five games ahead of the Nationals for second NL wild card. Cozart got things going for the Reds with his two-run shot to leftfield in the second inning. He added a two-run single in the fourth.
