Left-hander Brandon Finnegan surrendered three runs on three hits -- two of which were homers -- while walking one and striking out two over three innings for the Reds.

"I thought everything was good," Finnegan said. "I threw a lot of strikes; it's the main thing I'm working towards in Spring Training. Get ahead of hitters and throw strikes, and I did that today, so I'm happy with it."

Right-hander Raisel Iglesias took over for Finnegan in the third and faced the minimum over two innings.

Angels right-hander Garrett Richards, coming off stem-cell therapy to treat a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, allowed three runs on four hits over two innings in his spring debut. Richards struck out two and worked around a hit batsman for a scoreless first, but he then gave up a trio of runs in the second on four singles and a pair of wild pitches. He threw 32 pitches in the outing.

"It's a good feeling," Richards said. "I woke up this morning with a little bit of butterflies in my stomach, but I think that that's a good thing. Got excited on a couple pitches, but overall, everything was kind of doing what I wanted it to do. It was a good outing to build off of, but most importantly, I came out of it totally fine."
