Former Red Travis Wood shut down the Reds bats and the Cubs beat up Johnny Cueto to win the series opener 3-0 Tuesday night at Great American Ball Park.
Cueto gave up two home runs and took the loss. Wood only allowed two hits.
The Reds were shut out for the 12th time this season. Cueto has lost two consecutive games after winning seven straight decisions.
Relief pitcher Daniel Corcino made his Major League debut and retired the side in order in the ninth inning with two strike outs.
The Reds and Cubs continue their three game series Wednesday at GABP.
