Cueto scratched, Reds beat Rangers 5-4 in 10

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Johnny Cueto was scratched because of a sore back Thursday, giving Cincinnati another concern about its pitching staff, but the Reds rallied for a 5-4 victory over the Texas Rangers on Joey Votto's bases-loaded walk in the 10th inning.

Cueto was skipped on the same day closer Aroldis Chapman was having surgery for fractures above his left eye and nose after he was struck by a batted ball Wednesday night. Another starter, Mat Latos, is recovering from knee surgery.

Geovany Soto singled home a pair of runs in the first inning off Jeff Francis, who took Cueto's place. Soto, slowed by injuries this spring, raised his batting average to .400.

Prince Fielder hit his second homer off Sam LeCure for a 4-1 Texas lead. Brandon Phillips homered for the Reds.
