Tony Cingrani's second straight start against the Cardinals was nothing like the first.
Home opener hoopla was no distraction at all for Michael Wacha. Neither was the 49-degree chill for the first pitch.
Tony Cingrani pitched seven solid innings, Billy Hamilton hit two triples and the Cincinnati Reds topped the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-1 Thursday in a split-squad game.
Brandon Phillips hit his third home run in four games and Roger Bernadina added to his big spring for Cincinnati, belting a three-run shot and driving in four runs to help the Reds defeat the Chicago Cubs 8-3 on Saturday.
Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips homered to power the Cincinnati Reds past the Oakland Athletics 7-6 on Sunday.
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.
Tim Hudson extended his spring training scoreless streak to five innings, Pablo Sandoval homered to lead off a three-run fifth and the San Francisco Giants defeated the Cincinnati Reds 3-2 Thursday.
Left-hander Tony Cingrani is trying to shed his distinction as one of the major leagues' most fastball-reliant pitchers.
In a 5-2 loss, the Nationals' bid for a sweep of another National League contender fell victim to singles, some just out of reach, and a hard-throwing rookie left-hander.
The Reds have lost top starter Johnny Cueto for at least a few weeks because of a strained muscle in his back, the third significant injury for the defending NL Central champions in the season's opening weeks.
"It was great to see them come through and break out and get five runs (early)," Cingrani said. "It was just a matter of time. We've got a great hitting lineup. Today was the day they broke out of it."
"I had no fastball. I was trying to throw other things in there," Cingrani said. "Made too many mistakes."
