ST Game 29: Rangers 6, Reds 7

W: Maloney (1-0) L: Bleier (0-1)


While Mike Leake and Travis Wood were pitching very well down the stretch, Aaron Harang and now Johnny Cueto, not so much.

Against the Texas Rangers (9-18), the Cincinnati Reds (12-15-2) won Cueto’s final start of Spring Training, in spite of Cueto’s 4 inning, 5 run performance. He allowed 10 hits, struck out 6, and hit 2. Cueto claimed to have suffered from a tight back.

The offense bailed him out, though, with Scott Rolen hitting a 2-run home run in the first, and Wladimir Balentien clubbed a solo shot in the 5th. Minor leaguer Danny Dorn hit a homer in the 9th for the walk-off win.
