GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Shin-Soo Choo and Todd Frazier combined for seven hits and five runs as the Reds rolled to a 7-3 victory over the split-squad White Sox on Sunday at Camelback Ranch.

Choo added two stolen bases, while Frazier launched his first Cactus League home run on the first pitch of the fourth from Gavin Floyd. The White Sox right-hander gave up four runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking one, but still felt positive about the afternoon's effort.

"I felt good. I felt like I made some good steps from last start," said Floyd, who also walked one. "I had command of the fastball and I tried to tackle them with that. I tackled them with all of my pitches.

"I'm throwing my fastball, slider, sinker, curveball, change. I'm trying to make pitches and act like it's a middle-of-the-season game. I'm trying to get prepared for the season. They just got some good hits off me."

Johnny Cueto got the start for the Reds and allowed two runs on three hits over four innings. He struck out two and walked three. The White Sox scored one in the second on Trayce Thompson's groundout and then added another in the fourth on Conor Gillaspie's opposite-field triple and Tyler Flowers' groundout.

Up next: The Reds have Monday off and will resume games Tuesday when they host the Dodgers in Goodyear at 10:05 p.m. ET. Mat Latos is slated for his third outing of the spring.
