CINCINNATI -- Johnny Cueto matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in six innings, and Joey Votto and Jay Bruce -- the missing core of Cincinnati's batting order much of the season -- each drove in runs Wednesday night, leading the Reds to a 5-0 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Cueto (6-5) followed his shortest start of the season with one of his most dominating. He gave up three singles and didn't walk a batter, leaving after his 112th pitch. Cueto lasted only five innings during an 8-0 loss to Philadelphia on Friday.

Jonathan Broxton escaped a bases-loaded, one-out threat in the seventh by getting Hanley Ramirez to ground into a double play.

Votto doubled home a pair of runs off Hyun-Jin Ryu (7-3), who had won his last four starts.
