Arroyo pitches Reds past Pirates, 2-1

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Bronson Arroyo limited Pittsburgh to one run over seven-plus innings, Scott Rolen and Laynce Nix doubled in runs and the Cincinnati Reds held off the Pirates to win 2-1 on Monday night.

Arroyo (2-2), trying for his fourth career shutout, had permitted only three singles until Ronny Cedeno led off the eighth by homering down the left-field line, his third of the season.

Manager Dusty Baker lifted Arroyo after Delwyn Young followed with a pinch-hit single, and reliever Arthur Rhodes got the next three outs.

Arroyo couldn't have been much sharper until the eighth, retiring the side in order four times while not permitting a runner past second base until Cedeno homered.

Pirates right-hander Ross Ohlendorf (0-1) pitched four innings in his second start of the season.
