TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) Johnny Cueto rebounded from a rough outing with four scoreless innings for the Cincinnati Reds in their 3-1 loss Sunday to the Los Angeles Angels.
Cueto, coming off an injury-plagued season, allowed two hits and struck out two. It was a big improvement over his second spring start, when he gave up six runs and seven hits to Kansas City in 2 2-3 innings.
"He was terrific," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "He made a lot of good, consistent pitches. He held the ball and varied his times to the plate."
