Bailey works through walks in win

at Sarasota, Fla.
Monday, March 24

Reds at the plate: Adam Dunn hit a solo home run to right field in the second inning. Entering as a pinch-hitter in the fifth, Joey Votto connected on a two-run homer to left-center field. Jerry Hairston Jr. hit an RBI double in the seventh.

Blue Jays at the plate: Toronto's first run scored in the third when Brian Jeroloman scored on a throwing error that saved David Eckstein from hitting into a double play. In the ninth, Erik Krutz hit an RBI double and Justin Jackson drilled an RBI triple.

Reds on the mound: Starter Homer Bailey pitched 4 1/3 innings, allowing one unearned run and two hits with six walks, a wild pitch and two strikeouts. Jared Burton faced one batter and induced a double play to finish the fifth. Mike Lincoln allowed one hit and struck out one in two scoreless innings. Kent Mercker pitched a scoreless inning with two walks and a strikeout. Jeremy Affeldt gave up two ninth-inning runs on two hits and a walk with one strikeout.

Blue Jays on the mound: Lefty Jesse Carlson is vying for a bullpen spot, but he started Monday night so he could face better hitters. Carlson allowed one hit in a scoreless first inning. Scheduled starter Shaun Marcum gave up five earned runs and seven hits in six innings with one walk and six strikeouts.

Grapefruit League records: Reds 13-14-1; Blue Jays 9-15.

Up next for the Blue Jays: Toronto ace Roy Halladay will start when the Jays play the Rays at 7:05 p.m. ET in Dunedin, Fla. Right-hander Jason Hamel is Tampa Bay's scheduled starter.
