Raburn homers in return to the field
Question of the Day
Raburn also had a sacrifice fly while driving in three runs. He made a nice play at first base, too, on a low liner by Brayan Pena.
Raburn had been limited to designated hitter duty since crashing into the right-field wall on March 7.
“Simon ran a little hot and cold today,” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “He made some great pitches. He had a really good sinker. He threw the cutter-slider hybrid pitch he has. That was the best I’ve seen it this spring. When he gets in trouble he tries to get more movement. He doesn’t need to do that.”
Carrasco allowed three runs and nine hits in six innings. He struck out five and walked none.
“The last inning they scored two runs but I finished the inning strong,” Carrasco said. “There were runners on second and third. I just wanted to throw strikes. Just let it go.”
Carrasco struck out the last batter he faced.
Jason Kipnis hit a three-run homer off J.J. Hoover, who is one of the Reds‘ options for the closer role with Aroldis Chapman recovering from being hit above the eye by a line drive.
Carrasco, who started last season in the Indians‘ rotation, had a 5.59 ERA over 9 2-3 spring innings coming into the game against the Reds. He allowed eight runs in 2 2-3 innings in his previous outing.
“I brought my arm up a little bit. It made a difference. I saw pictures.” Carrasco said.
