WASHINGTON (AP) In a matchup against Max Scherzer and the first-place Washington Nationals, Johnny Cueto lifted his game to another level - perhaps that of an All-Star.

Cueto pitched a two-hitter with 11 strikeouts, Joey Votto homered and drove in three runs and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Nationals 5-0 Tuesday night.

The potential pitching duel between Cueto and Scherzer never materialized. Cueto kept up his end, retiring the final 15 batters in one of the best performances of his brilliant career.
