Cueto, Reds beat Blue Jays

CINCINNATI – Johnny Cueto pitched eight effective innings and the Cincinnati Reds beat Toronto 4-3 Sunday after Blue Jays stars Brett Lawrie and Jose Bautista exited early because of injuries.

Lawrie suffered a broken right index finger when he was hit by a pitch in the second. The team didn’t immediately announce how long the infielder would be out.

Bautista left because of tightness in his left leg. The All-Star outfielder had a single and a sacrifice bunt before leaving.

Cueto (7-5) gave up three runs – one earned – and leads the NL with a 1.86 ERA. He gave up seven hits and struck out eight while winning his third straight start.

Todd Frazier broke a 2-all tie in the fifth with a two-run homer off R.A. Dickey (6-6).
