Cueto leaves game with tightness in arm

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) - Reds starter Johnny Cueto cut short his start because of tightness in his right forearm and the Cincinnati Reds tied the Texas Rangers 5-5 Friday.

Scheduled to pitch four innings, Cueto went only two and said he might have the arm checked Saturday morning. Cueto allowed two runs on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts.

Ian Kinsler hit his fifth home run of the spring and Texas starter Colby Lewis allowed three runs, five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in four innings, then threw another dozen pitches in a bullpen.

Joey Votto had two hits for the Reds - an RBI single in the first and a double in the third. Yorvit Torrealba and Mitch Moreland both doubled in the second for the Rangers.
