by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Johnny Cueto delivers win No. 20 in season finale


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

He laced a single to center field to break a 1-1 tie before the Reds offense added a two-run blast later in the inning after the starter had been removed for a pinch runner. Cueto ends the season with a 2.25 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 242:65 K:BB ratio in 243 2/3 innings. If not for Clayton Kershaw, he'd be the clear choice for the NL Cy Young award.

Zimmermann (14-5) picked up the first no-hitter in Nationals history despite some late drama, as the Marlins followed up a long out to deep center field by driving a ball to the gap in left center before left fielder Steven Souza made an outstanding play on a dive to haul in the final out. Zimmermann ends the regular season with 12 straight quality starts and an 8-0 record during that stretch. He owns a 2.66 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 182:29 K:BB ratio in 199 2/3 innings.
