The arms: Opening day starter Joey Hamilton allowed three hits and two runs in five innings in his final spring start.
Jose Rijo (0-2) was credited with his second loss of the spring. He gave up three runs on five hits in the sixth and seventh innings. Scott Sullivan pitched a hitless eighth.
The bats: The Reds had 12 hits. Juan Encarnacion and Todd Walker went 2-for-3. Barry Larkin, who played the entire game and got five at-bats, went 1-for-5.
The rest: Walker was thrown out in the third when he tried to stretch a single into a double on a drive to right field. Wilton Guerrero stole his third base of the spring.
Up next: The Reds will play the New York Yankees at 7:15p.m. today in Tampa. The game will be the Reds' last in Florida before heading north. They'll play in Chattanooga Friday and in Louisville Saturday.
