CINCINNATI (AP) Wilson Valdez drove in the tying run and scored the go-ahead run to back the gritty pitching of Johnny Cueto as the Cincinnati Reds wrapped up one of the best homestands in franchise history with a 2-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday.
Cueto (12-5) matched his single-season career high in wins to lead the Reds to their eighth victory on the 10-game homestand.
It's only the fifth time in franchise history that Cincinnati posted at least eight wins on a home stand of 10 or fewer games.
The last time was in 1975, when the Reds went 8-1 on a homestand.
First-place Cincinnati sandwiched three-game sweeps of N.L. Central Division-rivals St. Louis and Milwaukee around a split of a four-game series against Arizona and maintained its lead over Pittsburgh in the division. AP-WF-07-22-12 2036GMT<
