Reds score 2 in 9th to rally past Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. - Minor league outfielder Steve Selsky doubled in two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the Cincinnati Reds, who bounced back from blowing a three-run lead and rallied to beat the Cleveland Indians 5-4 on Monday.

Indians minor league pitcher Tyler Guuilmet gave up singles to Argenis Diaz and Ramon Santiago, who is bidding for a bench role for the Reds.

Selsky then drove in the tying and winning runs. Tyler Holt was injured trying to field the ball in the left-field corner.

"How about David Selsky?" Reds first year manager Bryan Price said. "Nice."

Nick Swisher homered and Lonnie Chisenhall tripled to bring the Indians back after they fell behind 3-0. Cleveland took a 4-3 lead in the top of the ninth before losing.

Swisher's home run was one of three hits off Reds starter Mike Leake. It was Swisher's second home run in two days. Chisenhall, fighting for a job at third base, tripled off Pedro Beato to start a two-run seventh inning that tied the game.

Corey Kluber gave up five of the seven hits he allowed in the Reds' three-run second inning.

Jay Bruce's leadoff double and Todd Frazier's two-run triple gave the Reds an early advantage. Joey Votto singled twice in four at-bats.

Umpire Brad Myers left the game after he was hit in the groin area with a line drive hit by Brandon Phillips. He was lying on the ground for several minutes until he was able to sit up and ride off the field on cart.

"It may have been the hardest ball hit all day," Price said. "We heard that he was taken to the hospital to make sure he was OK. An umpire getting hit with a ball isn't unusual but getting hit in that region is beyond just painful."

Reds manager Bryan Price successfully challenged an out call at third base. Umpire Alan Porter called Phillips out on a steal of third in the fifth inning. The call was overturned from the replay truck. The replay took one minute.

"The replay worked out," Price said. "They were working with a three-man crew and after the umpire got hit, they were working with two. Alan Porter had to cover a couple positions. He felt he had the call right."

The delay was minor.

"It was very quick. We don't have any advantages of having someone in the video room to tell us whether to review it or not. It doesn't have to be as confrontational with the umpires," Price said.

STARTING TIME

Mike Leake, fully recovered from an abdominal strain, allowed a run and four hits in four innings. Leake struck out six without walking a batter.

"I tried to work quick," Leake said. "I kind of got lazy on a couple pitches but threw the ball pretty well for the most part."

TRAINER'S ROOM

Reds: Jonathan Broxton made his first spring appearance against the Indians. He had forearm flexor mass surgery on his right elbow in August. Broxton pitched a scoreless inning, using just eight pitches. "I had no problem getting loose," Broxton said. "Anytime you can get out there with an umpire, you have to pick on something to work on. Today, I was working on fastballs and that's all I did. ... Sean Marshall is working through a sore shoulder. He threw in the bullpen. ... Mat Latos will pitch in a minor league game on Wednesday. He has been slowed since undergoing surgery to remove bone chips in October and arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Feb. 14. ... Homer Bailey has a sore right groin. He is doing some light throwing.
