Offense unable to help Cueto in loss to Phillies

CINCINNATI -- It's usually a safe bet to assume a game started by Johnny Cueto and Cole Hamels will be a low-scoring pitching duel. But that wasn't the case on Friday night in the Reds' series opener with the Phillies at Great American Ball Park. For only the second time this season, Cueto gave up more than two runs -- four to be exact -- and it was more than enough for a sensational Hamels in an 8-0 Cincinnati defeat, the Reds' third consecutive loss.

Cueto was cruising along until the fourth, when with two outs and nobody on, he lost his balance a bit on a 3-2 fastball and walked Ryan Howard. He then hit Marlon Byrd, his second hit-batsmen of the inning (he picked Chase Utley off after grazing him earlier in the frame) and fifth in his last four outings.
