SARASOTA, FLA. (AP) - Right-hander Micah Owings gave up only one run even though his control was way off, keeping himself in line for the final spot in Cincinnati’s rotation as the Reds beat the Minnesota Twins 6-4 on Thursday night.

Owings allowed six hits and five walks in four innings, but only one run _ on a bases-loaded walk to Denard Span. Left fielder Chris Dickerson threw out Brendan Harris at the plate, and Owings pitched out of a couple of bases-loaded threats.

Ramon Hernandez, who played for Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic, hit his first homer for the Reds off right-hander Nick Blackburn. Owings also had a double off Blackburn and scored on Willy Taveras’ single.
