Reds 6, Pirates 3

The Reds beat the Pirates 6-3 at the Ed.

Reds tied it on back-to-back homers from Adam Dunn and Edwin Encarnacion in the sixth . Dunn went to opposite way for his fifth. East Eddie went out to center for his third. Chad Moeller hit a two-run double in the seventh. Dunn’s hitting .400. Encarnacion .318, including .458 over the last seven games.

Aaron Harang had another so-so outing. He gave up one in the second, one in the third and one in the fifth.

His line: 5 IP, 10 hits, 3 runs, 3 earned runs, no walks, 2 Ks.

His spring hasn't any better than Eric Milton's. Harang's ERA is 6.66. He's allowed 46 hits in 25 2/3 innings. He did strike out 22 and walked only two.

The difference is he was 16-11 with a 3.76 ERA last year. Milton was 8-8 with a 5.19 ERA.

Harang's a hard guy to read. He's never too higth or low. But he hasn't seemed too concerned or frustrated before today.

The Reds's first run came on Ken Griffey Jr.'s first RBI on the spring. A nice line drive into right with runners at first and third.

Eduardo Perez has been released. He might be a good 25th guy on this team instead of Denorfia or Hopper.
Perez can play 3B, 1B, RF and LF and is an experienced Pinch hitter.
