Reds win 7-0; Griffey 2-for-4
The Reds beat the Phillies 7-0 Reds at the Ed in Ken Griffey Jr.'s debut.
Griffey went to 2-for-4 and made a couple of plays in right field. Afterward, he politely declined to speak to reporters.
Bronson Arroyo had a nice outing -- six innings, five hits, no runs, one walk, six strikeouts -- despite not throwing his money pitch, the curveball, once.
"I threw all fastballs and change-ups," Arroyo said. "We were going to try to get by with it and see what happened. We face these guys later in the year."
Brandon Phillips followed Adam's Dunn's three-run shot with a solo shot in the second.
Those are two guys having good springs: Dunn's hitting .439 with four home runs. Phillips' homer was his fifth.
The Reds took a 1-0 lead in the first. Ryan Freel doubled. Dunn's opposite-field single got Freel home. After Phillips bounced into a double play, Griffey singled in his first spring at-bat. Just a nice line drive past short.
In the second, Griffey sent one to the warning track in right. He hit into a double play in the fifth. He doubled in his fourth at-bat and was lifted for a pinch-runner.
Griffey cleanly fielded a single in the second and caught a flyball in the third.
Chad Moeller also homered. Phillips and Edwin Encarnacion each went 3-for-4. Phillips in hitting .370. Encarnacion's up to .296. Those two are key to making the lineup work.
