CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Johnny Cueto continued his all-star season by beating Toronto Sunday at Great American Ball Park to lead the Reds to a third straight series win.

Todd Frazier hit his 17th home run of the season as the Reds scored four times of knuckle ball pitcher R.A. Dickey. The win evens the Reds record at 37-37 on the season and gives the club a winning record at home (19-18).

Cueto pitched eight innings and only allowed one earned run to improve his season record to 7-5 and lowered his ERA to 1.86.

"I'm always going to say I'm the best pitcher," Cueto said. "It doesn't matter how much you ask. I'm always going to say I'm the best pitcher."

Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick each had two hits for the Reds who scored 24 runs in the three-game weekend series.

"I expected this. This is us. We might not be an 11 runs-a-game team but we're a team that can score runs with the best teams in the league," Bruce said.

The Reds took two out of three games in the series. After Friday's embarrassing 14-9 loss to Toronto, the Reds beat the Blue Jays 11-1 Saturday night. Starter Mike Leake pitched eight innings, struck out six and gave up just one earned run.

"That's the great thing about this group right here, they really [stepped up]," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "Mike Leake and Johnny Cueto really picked up our bullpen. We needed that."

Phillips hurt

Brandon Phillips left the game with an injury the Reds announced as a bruised heel. He was walking gingerly after the game and wearing a boot on his right foot.

When asked if he would play Monday in Chicago against the Cubs, Phillips said, "Man, I don't know."
