The Reds head to North Scottsdale today to take on the Colorado Rockies. Mike Leake makes his second start of the spring. Last time out he gave up a run in 2 innings against the White Sox.
Todd Frazier was hitting just .188 heading into play yesterday and at times looked overmatched. But maybe things are turning around. Frazier had 2 hits against the Giants including a big 2 out, 2 run double in the first inning. He singled in the third and then promptly got thrown out trying to steal second base. Bryan Price said this team was going to run and they are.

Schumaker Goes Deep
Skip Schumaker who is having a great spring training had 2 more hits yesterday including his first homer run.

Cingrani Roughed up
Tony Cingrani got through the first two innings yesterday against the Giants with no problem but things went south from there. In the third he gave up a three run homer to Buster Posey. In the fourth Ehire Adrianza pounded out a two run homer. To be fair, that one probably would have been caught in GABP.

The Reds played a "B" game on the complex yesterday. It was a chance to get some of the extra guys more work. Jack Hanahan, who is coming off of shoulder surgery and probably won't be ready for the start of the season, was one of those who got some at bats.
