NEW YORK (AP) -- Johnny Cueto pitched effectively into the eighth inning, Ryan Ludwick delivered two big hits and the Cincinnati Reds closed out their extended visit to New York by beating the Yankees 5-2 Sunday.
The Reds rallied late against CC Sabathia, sending the Yankees to their fifth loss in six games. Aroldis Chapman closed it out as Cincinnati took two of three at Yankee Stadium, right after splitting a pair at Citi Field against the Mets.
Cueto (5-1) gave up a two-run homer to Raul Ibanez in the sixth. The Yankees had plenty of traffic against him, but couldn't score more.
Reds manager Dusty Baker mixed and matched his bullpen the rest of the way, using Sean Marshall and Logan Ondrusek to get through the eighth. Chapman, the closer for at least a day, worked a hitless ninth for his first save of the season and the second of his major league career.
The hard-throwing lefty has not allowed an earned run in 22 1-3 innings this season, striking out 39.

Chapman picked up his second career save on Sunday by finishing off a 5-2 win over the New York Yankees. The Reds have been looking for someone to take the spot of closer Ryan Madson, out for the season with a torn elbow ligament.

CINCINNATI Ryan Ludwick was thrilled beyond comprehension his first appearance on FOX Sports Ohio as the Star of the Game for the Cincinnati Reds and first appearance on any Star of the Game Show for a long, long time.
For a guy seemingly locked in mediocrity, as least as far as his batting average was concerned, it was a special moment for the 33-year-old outfielder.
