SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Brandon McCarthy pitched three innings in his second start, allowing a home run in the first inning to Zack Cozart, and the Arizona Diamondbacks took advantage of some sloppy Cincinnati play to beat the Reds 7-2 Monday.

Johnny Cueto went three innings in his second start for Cincinnati. He slipped in the first inning, causing concern for the Reds because he strained an oblique in the playoffs last season.

The right-hander was able to finish his outing without further problems.

The Diamondbacks scored four unearned runs on three Cincinnati errors.
