Johnny Cueto dazzled Washington hitters in 1, in the second game tilt at Nationals Park.

Cueto (9-5) gave up one run -- a ninth inning homer to Ryan Zimmerman -- while scattering six hits and fanning five.

Joey Votto hit a solo homer and Ramon Hernandez drove in a run for Cincinnati, which has won five of its last seven contests.

Zimmerman had two hits -- including his solo blast -- and Rick Ankiel added a pair of singles for the Nats, who have lost four times in their last six games.

Ross Detwiler (1-3) was pegged with the loss after giving up a run on seven hits in six innings of work.
