Game report: Red Sox 11, Reds 1
The arms: Manager Bob Boone was upbeat about Elmer Dessens, who allowed six runs (five earned) and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings. The right-hander pitched with only two days' rest and remains on track to join the starting rotation. He made some mistakes with his change-up and his fastball, but I was pleased that he maintained his velocity, Boone said.
The bats: There's not much to say when Pedro Martinez is involved. The St.Pedro's Day Massacre, said Dmitri Young, who fanned twice against the Boston ace. Aaron Boone joined Ken Griffey Jr. in stroking a pair of singles against Martinez. Michael Coleman's sixth-inning home run off Sun woo Kim accounted for Cincinnati's lone run.
The rest: Third baseman Aaron Boone made a bare-handed pickup and threw out a runner for the second day in a row, victimizing Boston's Shea Hillenbrand in the fourth inning.
Up next: Today against Minnesota at Fort Myers, 1:05 p.m. Pete Harnisch will oppose Twins left-hander Mark Redman.
