GOODYEAR, Ariz. -- Adam Duvall slugged a pair of home runs during a three-hit, four-RBI game as the Reds topped a Dodgers split squad, 9-3, on Tuesday at Goodyear Ballpark.
The Dodgers took a 2-1 lead in the second inning when Cody Bellinger hit a two-run homer to right field against Reds starter Scott Feldman. Arismendy Alcantara answered in the bottom half with his two-out solo homer to center field against Dodgers left-hander Alex Wood.
Eugenio Suarez and Scott Schebler contributed RBI singles for the Reds in the third inning. In the fourth, Billy Hamilton hit a one-out double, stole third base and was awarded home on interference by Rob Segedin as the Dodgers catcher's throw got away into left field. Duvall, who hit an RBI single in the first inning, made it a four-run game with a leadoff homer to right field in the fifth. In the bottom of the seventh against reliever Walker Buehler, Duvall launched a two-run homer to right field -- giving him five for the spring.
Wood, a candidate for the Dodgers' rotation, allowed six runs (five earned) on 11 hits and a walk. He struck out four in his six innings.
Wood's role remains unclear
"He threw the ball well," said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts. "There was certainly some bad luck out there."
In his final spring outing before he starts on Opening Day, Monday vs. the Phillies, Feldman gave up two earned runs and four hits over 5 2/3 innings. He walked two, hit a batter and struck out four.
"I'm really pretty happy that I feel strong and ready to go for the season," Feldman said. "No issues with my arm or any body part. I just feel nice and healthy and ready to go."
Dodgers Up Next: Wednesday is Getaway Day for the Dodgers, who break camp after playing the Mariners in Peoria in Clayton Kershaw's final tune-up before his Opening Day assignment, Monday vs. the Padres. Kershaw likely will pitch three innings and the 1:10 p.m. PT game will be aired on MLB Network and MLB.TV. Most Dodgers regulars, however, will have headed for California after Tuesday's games.
Reds Up Next: The Cactus League schedule also concludes on Wednesday for the Reds, with a 3:05 p.m. ET game vs. the Indians at Goodyear Ballpark that will be carried on MLB.TV. No. 2 starter Brandon Finnegan will make his final tune-up on the mound. The club will break camp and return to Cincinnati after the game.
