Izturis boosts chances of making Reds’ team

Published 5:28pm Sunday, March 10, 2013

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Cesar Izturis boosted his chance to win a utility job on the Cincinnati Reds, hitting a sixth inning home run off Travis Webb and an eighth-inning RBI single against Johnny Hellweg in the Cincinnati Reds’ 6-5 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday.

Logan Schafer drove in two runs with a single and a double and Donnie Murphy hit three hits, including a double.

Schafer, a third-round pick by the Brewers in the 2008 amateur draft, is a candidate to make an opening-day roster that will be missing Corey Hart and Mat Gamel. Murphy is also in the mix for a utility spot and the first-base job.

Schedule to pitch three innings, Homer Bailey allowed three runs — one earned — and four hits in two innings. The Reds auditioned second baseman Henry Rodriguez and shortstop Jason Donald, and they failed to turn two ground balls into double plays, leading to the unearned runs.

On a day with wet conditions, Reds manager Dusty Baker gave most of his regulars the day off.

Milwaukee starter Wily Peralta allowed three runs and five hits in 2 1-3 innings.
