Giants rough up Cingrani, top Reds 8-5


Buster Posey had a three-run homer off Tony Cingrani among his three hits, leading the San Francisco Giants over the Cincinnati Reds 8-5 Tuesday.

Posey added an RBI double and a single as the Giants overcame a three-run deficit.

The Reds scored three quick runs off Tim Hudson.

Todd Frazier doubled home two runs in the first. Billy Hamilton doubled home Skip Schumaker, who started in left field, giving the Reds the lead after two innings.

Hunter Pence started his second game after resting a sore shoulder. He tripled after Posey’s home run.

Ehire Adrianza hit his second home run of the spring, a two-run shot off Cingrani, who allowed six runs after pitching seven scoreless innings, including the first two innings of this appearance.

“I was pretty good in the first two,” Cingrani said. “Then after that, it was good luck. It’s spring. They hit some pitches. I threw pretty well in the first two. I’ve just got to get that stamina back up.”

Schumaker, who signed a two-year deal with the Reds in November, doubled and hit a solo home run off Hudson. He is hitting .550 this spring.

Aroldis Chapman pitched three scoreless innings. He allowed a hit and issued his first walk of the spring while working on his slider and change-up.

Chapman has worked eight innings, allowing two runs on eight hits. He’s struck out 10.

Reds manager Bryan Price told reporters not to read too much into the three-inning stint for Chapman.

“It doesn’t mean he’s going to start,” Price said.

Thinning the herd: The Reds announced the following roster moves after the game:

• Pitchers Chad Rogers, Carlos Contreras, Daniel Corcino and David Holmberg were optioned to Class AAA Louisville, along with outfielders Ryan LaMarre and Donald Lutz.

• Outfielders Juan Duran and Yorman Rodriguez and pitcher Ismael Guillon were optioned to Class AA Pensacola.

• Pitchers Tim Crabbe, Michael Lorenzen and Robert Stephenson, infielder Reynaldo Navarro and catchers Rossmel Perez and Max Ramirez were reassigned to minor-league camp.

• Infielder Henry Rodriguez, who earlier had been designated for assignment, was released.
