"I love this guy"
It was the first 1-0 vic in more than a year since April 9, 2015 -- also against the Padres in a 12-inning marathon.
"He was carving up the strike zone" is what Krukow said.
He's also the 13th Dominican pitcher to win 100 games. Juan Marichal leads the list at 243.
Here's the mlb.com coverage --
Reaching triple digits would have made this a memorable game for Cueto (4-1) under any circumstance. But he put a little something extra in it by striking out 11 in his 13th career complete game and seventh shutout. Cueto yielded seven hits and stranded four runners in scoring position.
MOMENTS THAT MATTERED Big pitches to a big hitter: Cueto directly challenged the Padres, as demonstrated by his approach to Matt Kemp. Cueto struck out Kemp with a runner on third base and one out in the first inning, then fanned the ex-Dodger again in the fourth with a runner on first base.
Can't find their way home: On three occasions, the Padres put a runner on third base with one out, but they came away empty-handed all three times -- including a frustrating sequence in the fourth. With men on the corners and one out, Melvin Upton Jr. was thrown out stealing. Derek Norris followed by hitting a deep fly ball that would have plated a run, but instead qualified as the third out.
