GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Dan Haren and Bronson Arroyo made solid starts, and Ryan Ludwick’s two-out, two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning gave the Cincinnati Reds a 5-4 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.
Haren threw 90 pitches in 5 2-3 innings for the Angels, allowing two runs and nine hits. He struck out two.
Arroyo worked six innings, his longest performance of the spring. He allowed two runs and four hits, including Vernon Wells’ third homer.
Ludwick, trying to win playing time in left field, homered in the ninth off Loek Van Mil, who also walked Chris Heisey.
Jason Isringhausen, who is trying to win a job with the Angels, pitched a scoreless inning.
