WhoDeyForever Posted March 1, 2007 Report Share Posted March 1, 2007 REDS 9, PIRATES 7 at Bradenton, Fla. Thursday, March 1 Reds at the plate: Second baseman Brandon Phillips had a towering, two-run homer to left-center in the fifth inning, and Mark Bellhorn followed with one of his own three batters later. Left-fielder Adam Dunn tied the score at 1 on an 0-1 pitch in the first with a homer that cleared the scoreboard in left-center field, and Josh Hamilton bested that with a two-run, straightaway home run that cleared the two-story wall beyond the 400-foot sign. Infielder Jeff Keppinger went deep as well.Reds on the mound: Starter Eric Milton scattered six hits in two innings but surrendered just two runs, each of them homers. Kirk Saarloos pitched two perfect innings. Grapefruit League records: Reds 1-0; Pirates 0-1. Up next: Cincinnati will play the Twins in a 7 p.m. ET game Friday at Hammond Stadium in Fort Myers. Reds righty Kyle Lohse will take the mound against Minnesota right-hander Ramon Ortiz. http://cincinnati.reds.mlb.com/news/articl...sp&c_id=cin-------------------Good job by the Reds today hitting. Nice to see it on the first spring training game. I love Josh Hamilton. I think this guy is gonna be a star. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
