Top 1 - Rays at Reds (Spring finale)

Welcome, friends, to the final game of spring training here in sunny Florida. I'm Herald Staff Writer Douglas A. Kaid (you can call me Doug) and I'll be updating you today with some of the goings between the Reds and the Rays.

Here are the lineups:


Akinori Iwamura
Carl Crawford
Carlos Pena
B.J. Upton
Eric Hinske
Jonny Gomes
Dioner Navarro
Jason Bartlett
Edwin Jackson

Corey Patterson
Norris Hopper
Jeff Keppinger
Brandon Phillips
Adam Dunn
Edwin Encarnacion
Joey Votto
David Ross
Johnny Cueto

Cueto, the Reds pitching phenom, who earned a spot in the rotation with a great spring, put Iwamura and Crawford on to lead off the game. He then regrouped and retired the next three without allowing Iwamura and Crawford to move up. Cueto struck out Upton and Hinske to end the inning. We'll give you much more on Cueto as the day goes on. But we have to move on to the Reds' offensive half of the inning.

Rays 0, Reds 0
