Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Tony Cingrani had 11 strikeouts over six shutout innings and the Cincinnati Reds avoided a four-game sweep by the Washington Nationals with a 5-2 win on Sunday.

Cingrani (2-0) allowed just two hits and a walk in his outing, with Aroldis Chapman recording his fifth save with a scoreless ninth.

Brandon Phillips and Zack Cozart drove in two runs apiece for Cincinnati, while Joey Votto had one RBI in the victory.

Ross Detwiler (1-2) gave up four runs -- three earned -- on 11 hits and one walk in five innings for the Nationals, who had either swept or been swept in their first four series at home this season. They swept three-game sets against the Marlins and White Sox, but dropped all three games to the Braves and Cardinals.

Kurt Suzuki and Ian Desmond each had an RBI double in the setback.
