Span, Nationals batter Reds' Cueto in 9-4 win

By JOSEPH WHITE
AP Sports Writer

WASHINGTON (AP) - Denard Span was at his disruptive best, getting three hits off the major's top pitcher and forcing a pair of throwing errors Tuesday night to lead the Washington Nationals to a 9-4 win over the Cincinnati Reds.

Span finished 5 for 5 with two runs, two doubles, two RBIs and a stolen base as the Nationals accomplished a first for 2014: They made Johnny Cueto (4-3) look mortal.

The Reds' ace allowed more than two runs, more than five hits and failed to pitch at least seven innings - all for the first time this season.

The final line for Cueto: 5 1-3 innings, six hits, eight runs (six earned), six strikeouts. He also hit two batters in the same inning - the seven-run sixth when the Nationals blew the game open.
