Cueto fans 7 vs. D-backs in final Opening Day tuneup

GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Competing for one of the final spots in the D-backs bullpen, Archie Bradley stretched out and took a no-hitter into the sixth inning while his team took a 3-0 victory over the Reds on Wednesday.

Bradley went 5 2/3 innings before Todd Frazier notched Cincinnati's first hit in the sixth. The Arizona right-hander walked three in the game and struck out two over six innings.

"We didn't do anything. We got two hits," Reds manager Bryan Price said. "[Bradley] threw the ball pretty good. He did some good things. He got in some trouble with some walks and was able to get some groundballs and get out of it."

Reds ace and Opening Day starter Johnny Cueto made his final spring tuneup with five innings. Cueto allowed all three of his runs and his three hits in the fourth inning. Overall he walked two and struck out seven.

Following a walk and an infield hit, Jake Lamb hit a single that loaded the bases in the top of the fourth against Cueto. Yasmany Tomas, who is vying to be Arizona's third baseman, laced a bases-clearing double to right-center field for the three-run lead.

Reds reliever Kevin Gregg, who is trying to lock down a bullpen spot, worked a scoreless inning with one strikeout following Cueto's departure.

Also competing with Bradley for a D-backs bullpen spot, Robbie Ray pitched three innings, struck out three and walked a pair while also earning the save for Arizona.

Up Next: Before they break camp and head to Montreal, the Reds have one final Cactus League game vs. the Indians Thursday at 3:05 p.m. ET. Not only will it be a final spring tuneup for starting pitcher Mike Leake, but expect regulars Joey Votto and Jay Bruce to get some at-bats after not playing on Wednesday. Also pitching for Cincinnati will be Jumbo Diaz and J.J. Hoover. The game will be available on Gameday Audio.
