Reds take game one of doubleheader with White Sox 10-4
CHICAGO (AP) — Johnny Cueto pitched into the ninth inning in his longest start of the year, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Chicago White Sox 10-4 on Saturday in the opener of a traditional doubleheader.
Cueto (3-3) was working on a four-hitter before he was pulled with one out in Chicago’s three-run ninth. J.J. Hoover finished for Cincinnati, which has won three of four.
Cueto allowed six hits, struck out seven and walked two, bouncing back from a loss at Atlanta last Sunday. The right-hander was charged with five runs and nine hits in six innings against the Braves after lasting at least seven innings in his first five starts of the year.
Skip Schumaker had three hits and two RBIs as Cincinnati improved to 4-14 against Chicago with its first road win against the White Sox since a 7-5 victory on June 25, 1998.
White Sox starting pitcher Hector Noesi left the game in the second inning after being hit with a Billy Hamilton comebacker. The team is calling it a back injury.
