   TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Johnny Cueto rebounded from a rough outing with four scoreless innings for the Cincinnati Reds in their 3-1 loss Sunday to the Los Angeles Angels.

Cueto, coming off an injury-plagued season, allowed two hits and struck out two. It was a big improvement over his second spring start, when he gave up six runs and seven hits to Kansas City in 2 2-3 innings.

A 19-game winner in 2012, Cueto struggled with a strained muscle on the right side of his back last year and was sidelined for 2 1/2 months. He finished 5-2 with a 2.82 ERA in 11 starts.

Angels left-hander Tyler Skaggs also threw four shutout innings, allowing one hit and two walks with three strikeouts.

Erick Aybar singled and stole second to start the fifth against Reds reliever Sam LeCure. Hank Conger followed with a single to score Aybar, and Conger went to second on the throw home. He was called safe by umpire Jim Reynolds on a close play. Reds manager Bryan Price challenged the call, which was upheld.

Kole Calhoun added a two-out RBI single. Carlos Pena had a run-scoring single in the sixth.
