Cueto regains ERA lead, Reds beat Rockies 2-1

Johnny Cueto and two relievers made a pair of first-inning runs stand up and the Cincinnati Reds salvaged a split of their four-game series against the Colorado Rockies with a 2-1 win on Thursday.

Cueto, hampered by an upset stomach while pitching a season-low 3 2-3 innings in his last start at Wrigley Field, bounced back to throw seven shutout innings. He took over the NL ERA lead, lowering his mark from 2.06 to 1.94.

Cueto struck out a season-high nine, walked two and hit a batter.

Aroldis Chapman allowed the first two Rockies to reach in the eighth before getting Carlos Gonzalez to ground into a double play and striking out Eliezer Alfonzo. Francisco Cordero allowed Seth Smith's 12th home run of the season leading off the ninth, then earned his 22nd save.
