At this point, it seems like there's nothing much else to say. Johnny Cueto is good. We get it.

He's been really, really good for most of this year, he's been really good for most of his career and he was really good again on Friday, leading the Reds to a 6-2 victory over the Giants at AT&T Park.

"It's getting boring, man," Reds right fielder Jay Bruce said with a smile after Cueto went 8 1/3 innings, allowing just three hits and two walks to the Giants. "He's done a great job, he really has. He's really, really grown as a pitcher. He's out there controlling the game. It's something I love to see and I think everyone else on the team loves to see too."

Of course, in the outfield, Bruce didn't have much to do -- so he had to earn his keep at the plate. Bruce had two hits and drove in two runs. Ceuto had just three strikeouts, his second lowest output of the season, but he had 15 ground ball outs and just five fly ball outs -- two of those to Bruce, but none to Bruce after the third.
