Other spring training games

The Associated Press

Barry Bonds hit his fifth home run of spring training for the San Francisco Giants in a 6-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers.

The only five-time MVP in baseball history, Bonds is 8-for-20 (.400) this spring with nine RBIs.

Braves 9, Astros 8

At Kissimmee, Fla., Mike Hampton gave up a grand slam to former Houston teammate Craig Biggio. The left-hander allowed six runs and seven hits in four innings increase his spring training ERA to 8.00.

Red Sox 6, Orioles 3

At Fort Myers, Fla., Tim Wakefield pitched three scoreless innings, and Boston's Shea Hillenbrand and Trot Nixon homered for the first time this spring.

Before the game, the Red Sox learned pitching coach Tony Cloninger may have bladder cancer. Hillenbrand hit a three-run homer and is 13-for-24 (.542) this spring.

Tigers 5, Blue Jays 3

At Lakeland, Fla., Jeremy Bonderman made his third impressive outing of spring training in his bid for a spot in Detroit's starting rotation.

The 20-year-old right-hander who has never pitched above Class A, allowed one run and one hit in four innings.

Cardinals 7, Marlins 2

At Jupiter, Fla., Cal Eldred, who sat out last season recovering from elbow surgery, worked four scoreless innings for St. Louis. He has allowed one earned run in 10 2-3 innings this spring in his bid for a spot in the rotation.

Scott Rolen hit a two-run homer for his first extra-base hit of the spring.

Indians 3, Twins 1

At Winter Haven, Fla., Jake Westbrook allowed one run and three hits in five innings, and Milton Bradley homered for Cleveland.

Twins starter Joe Mays, coming off right elbow surgery in November, allowed two runs and six hits in four innings.

Dodgers (ss) 5, Mets (ss) 1

At Vero Beach, Fla., Darren Dreifort pitched shutout ball for 4 1-3 innings for Los Angeles.

Dreifort, coming off arm and knee injuries that kept him from pitching for most of the last two seasons, allowed two hits in his longest stint of the spring. He struck out five and walked one.

Pirates (ss) 11, Devil Rays (ss) 2

At Bradenton, Fla., Jeff D'Amico gave up one run and five hits in four innings for Pittsburgh.

Julian Tavarez, another of the six pitchers competing for a spot in the Pirates' rotation, followed and gave up two hits and an unearned run in three innings.

Pirates (ss) 3, Devil Rays (ss) 3, 10 innings

At St. Petersburg, Fla., Pittsburgh pitcher Dennys Reyes was hit on top of the head by a line drive and taken to a hospital.

Reyes was struck above the forehead by a liner off the bat of Tampa Bay's Aubrey Huff.

The left-hander sat on the mound for about five minutes while trainers examined him, then left sitting up on a cart. The Pirates said Reyes was "stable, conscious and coherent" when he was taken to the hospital for further testing as a precaution.

Padres 6, Cubs 6

At Mesa, Ariz., Mark Loretta went 4-for-4 with a two-run double, and Adam Eaton took another step back from elbow surgery by allowing three runs - two earned - and six hits in four innings for San Diego.

Diamondbacks 5, Rockies 3

At Tucson, Ariz., Arizona closer Matt Mantei gave up a tying home run to Kevin Eberwein in the ninth inning, but Luis Terrero hit a two-run shot in the bottom half to win it for the Diamondbacks. Todd Helton also homered for the Rockies.

White Sox 6, Athletics 6, 10 innings

At Phoenix, Scott Hatteberg hit a three-run homer, and Mark Ellis and Erubiel Durazo also homered for Oakland. Paul Konerko, Carlos Lee, Joe Crede and Jamie Burke homered for the White Sox.

Royals 11, Angels 3

At Surprise, Ariz., Michael Tucker hit two home runs, including a grand slam off Troy Percival, and drove in five runs. Dee Brown hit his club-leading fourth homer for Kansas City.

Mariners (ss) 7, Giants (ss) 5

At Peoria, Ariz., John Olerud homered and drove in three runs, and Randy Winn added a solo shot for Seattle. Jamie Moyer pitched five innings, allowing three runs and seven hits while striking out seven.

Andres Galarraga and Ruben Rivera homered for the Giants. Starting pitcher Damian Moss gave up four runs and four hits in three innings.

Rangers 6, Mariners (ss) 5

At Peoria, Ariz., Jermaine Clark had four hits and Texas roughed up reliever Arthur Rhodes, who gave up four runs - three earned - and five hits in 1 1-3 innings. Ichiro Suzuki had three hits for Seattle.
