Cueto walked two and struck out eight to improve his league-leading ERA to 1.25.

"He was terrific," Reds skipper Bryan Price said. "He's had games where he's been sharper, but he kept making pitches. I don't know what else I can say about him."

Brandon Phillips provided the offense for the Reds (18-20), hitting a three-run home run off Padres starter Ian Kennedy in the bottom of the fifth.

Seth Smith extended his hitting streak to 10 games for the Padres (19-22).
