Pirates 6, Reds 2



The loss assures the Reds, who fell to 13-16-2, of a losing exhibition season.

The arms: Chris Reitsma started and took the loss. He allowed two hits - both home runs to Aramis Ramirez. Brian Reith finished up, allowing two runs on three hits in two innings of work.

The bats: Austin Kearns went 2-for-2. He had only three spring hits coming in. Ken Griffey Jr. extended his hitting streak to five games. Wily Mo Pena hit his third home run of the spring. He is hitting .306.

The rest: Most of the Reds' regulars were gone by the sixth inning. A bus left at 2:15 p.m. (the game was a 1:05 start) to take them back to Sarasota from Bradenton.

Up next: The Reds open Great American Ball Park at 7:10 p.m. today against the Cleveland Indians. Left-hander Jimmy Anderson (2-2, 4.50) will face Ricardo Rodriguez (2-2, 2.84).
