Harnisch shows his worth

No. 1 starter goes 5 shutout innings

        SARASOTA, Fla. — If Pete Harnisch isn't traded, he showed Saturday why the Reds are looking at him to be their ace.

        He threw five shutout innings against Tampa Bay in a 6-4 Reds split-squad victory. In the Reds' other game, Dennys Reyes gave up one run in four innings as the Reds beat the Kansas City Royals 3-1 to improve to 9-2 this spring.

        After two straight 45-pitch outings, Harnisch threw 60 Saturday.

        “I still have some things I need to work on,” said Harnisch, “but each time, it's a little better.”

        Bob Boone was just as pleased.

        “He was pretty sharp,” the manager said. “He was judicious with his pitches and had a good changeup.”

        Also in that game. Ken Griffey Jr. hit a long home run in the first inning off Ryan Rupe.

        You can get your first look at the Reds this spring as the club takes on the Texas Rangers at 1p.m. today on Fox Sports Net.
