GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Minutes after their home game with the Cubs was rained out after 1 1/2 innings on Friday, the Reds' road affair with the Dodgers was stopped by wet weather after four innings with Los Angeles leading, 3-1.

Chris Capuano, who was supposed to relieve Ted Lilly in a day game the Dodgers earlier lost to rain, instead started the nightcap and allowed one run on one hit in four innings. Bronson Arroyo started for the Reds and allowed one run on one hit in three innings.

Dodgers prospect Scott Van Slyke doubled in two runs in the fourth inning off Curtis Partch. Both teams scored in the first inning, with speedy leadoff hitters Billy Hamilton of the Reds and Dee Gordon of the Dodgers holding a track meet.

Hamilton had an infield single, stole second, took third on catcher Ramon Castro's throwing error and scored on Ryan Ludwick's double. Gordon doubled, stole third and scored on Elian Herrera's groundout.

Back in Goodyear against the Cubs, Reds starter Tony Cingrani gave up a two-out solo homer to Scott Hairston in the first. He pitched two innings and allowed one run with two hits, one walk and two strikeouts. Cincinnati evened the score on Neftali Soto's sacrifice fly off Nick Struck that scored Shin-Soo Choo. The game was canceled before the bottom of the second with the score knotted, 1-1.

Up next: Homer Bailey will be back for his third appearance of spring when the Reds host the Brewers Saturday at 3:05 p.m. ET. Bailey will be followed on the mound by Jonathan Broxton, Clay Hensley and Daniel Corcino.
