CINCINNATI (AP) - Johnny Cueto struck out nine in seven innings on Saturday, and Brayan Pena singled through a drawn-in infield for the only run, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 1-0 victory over the Washington Nationals that ended a seven-game losing streak.
Cincinnati ended its longest skid in five years by getting several good defensive plays and another dominating performance by its All-Star starter. Cueto (11-6) gave up four hits and walked three.
Left-hander Aroldis Chapman pitched out of a two-on, two-out threat in the eighth and finished for his 22nd save in 24 chances. He extended his streak of at least one strikeout in his last 43 appearances, the longest by a reliever in the majors since 1900.
Gio Gonzalez (6-6) gave up four hits and fanned eight in seven innings.
CARDINALS 6, CUBS 3
CHICAGO (AP) - Matt Adams drove in four runs, A.J. Pierzynski had three hits in his St. Louis debut and the Cardinals beat Chicago to stop a four-game skid.
Shelby Miller returned to the Cardinals' rotation and pitched 5 2-3 effective innings. Adams hit a two-run double in the first and a two-run triple in a four-run seventh that was capped by Pierzynski's RBI single.
Randy Choate (2-2) got the last out of the sixth. Trevor Rosenthal worked around two hits in a scoreless ninth, earning his 31st save in 35 tries.
The 37-year-old Pierzynski signed with the Cardinals on Saturday, 10 days after he was released by Boston. St. Louis had been looking for a steady presence behind the plate since All-Star catcher Yadier Molina tore a ligament in his right thumb July 9.
Ryan Sweeney and pinch-hitter Nate Schierholtz homered for the Cubs. James Russell (0-2) took the loss.
BLUE JAYS 6, YANKEES 4
NEW YORK (AP) - Dan Johnson drove in four runs with a go-ahead infield hit and a three-run homer, helping Toronto end its 17-game losing streak at Yankee Stadium.
Brian McCann's two-run homer put New York ahead in the fourth inning, but Johnson drove in the tiebreaking run in the seventh with a 70-foot bloop that fell in front of second baseman Brian Roberts.
Johnson's ninth-inning drive off Jeff Francis, which extended the lead to 6-2, was his first homer since hitting three for the Chicago White Sox at Cleveland on Oct. 3, 2012.
Drew Hutchison (7-9) stopped a three-start skid to win for the first time since July 1.
Chris Capuano failed to get a decision in his Yankees debut. Shawn Kelley (1-3) was the loser.
Toronto, like New York chasing Baltimore in the AL East, had not won at Yankee Stadium since Aug. 29, 2012. New York lost for just the second time in eight games since the All-Star break.
MARINERS 4, ORIOLES 3
SEATTLE (AP) - Chris Young allowed two hits in seven shutout innings, and Seattle snapped a four-game losing streak by holding off Baltimore.
Dustin Ackley doubled twice and scored two runs for the Mariners. Robinson Cano had an RBI double.
After the Orioles took advantage of an error by All-Star third baseman Kyle Seager to score three times in the eighth, Fernando Rodney closed it out for his 200th career save.
Young (9-6), who did not pitch in the majors last season, walked three and matched his season high with eight strikeouts. He has won nine games for the first time since 2007 with San Diego.
Bud Norris (8-7), who won five of his previous six starts, went five innings for the Orioles. He allowed four runs and six hits.
