CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Johnny Cueto continued his early season success leading the Reds to a 6-2 win over the Brewers.

Cueto, the Reds Opening Day stater, allowed only two hits and two earned runs in eight innings pitched to improve his record to 3-2 on the season.

"He doesn't have the body of an Olympic athlete, but he plays baseball like an Olympian," said Bryan Price after the win.  "(He is) as advertised.  If anyone would have seen him for the first time, who said, ‘hey, Johnny Cueto is pitching, let's go down and see him', wasn't disappointed."

Cueto is the first Reds pitcher to throw at least eight innings in four consecutive appearances since Jose Rijo in 1990.

Ryan Ludwick and Brandon Phillips returned to the line-up after a night off on Friday and combined for five hits in seven at bats.

"It's still early," said Phillips after his three-hit night.  "You know, we've got a lot of haters out there, especially a lot of people hating on me.  It is what it is, man, I know what I can do and, hopefully, we can continue doing what we're doing right now and make the fans happy."

The Reds have pulled within a half game of the second place St. Louis Cardinals.  The Reds can win the series with the Brewers with a win on Sunday.
