Newcomer Johnny Cueto Gives Up 5 Runs in Spring Debut, Rockies Beat Giants

San Francisco newcomer Johnny Cueto gave up five runs over 1 1-3 innings of his spring debut, and Carlos Gonzalez homered to help the Colorado Rockies beat the Giants 8-6 Wednesday.

Cueto, who left the World Series champion Kansas City Royals and signed a six-year, $130 million free agent deal, faced nine batters and recorded four outs. He gave up Gonzalez's two-run homer, walked one and struck out two.

Gerardo Parra drove in a pair of runs, Mark Reynolds tripled, singled and drove in a run and Nolan Arenado added an RBI single for the Rockies.

Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford played in the field for the first time this spring. He also doubled.
