Sunday, the Chicago Cubs played two games with the team split up playing the Reds and LA Dodgers. The team had a better outing against the Dodgers than they did the Reds. The Cubs only got two hits and were unable to score.

Johnny Cueto pitched three scoreless innings and World Series MVP Edgar Renteria got two hits as the Cincinnati Reds beat a Chicago Cubs split squad 10-0 Sunday.

Cueto, who signed a $27 million, four-year contract in the offseason, allowed one hit and one walk.

Renteria, a shortstop last year when he helped San Francisco win the championship, signed with the Reds before spring training and started at second base. He scored twice.

Paul Janish, expected to start for the Reds at shortstop, also had two hits and Zack Cozart homered. Chris Heisey and Juan Francisco drove in two runs for Cincinnati.
