GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) — Barry Zito allowed a run while pitching 3 1-3 innings and Bronson Arroyo gave up one earned run in four in the San Francisco Giants’ 9-5 win over the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday.
Zito gave up five hits and struck out three for the Giants in an outing against the team the World Series champions rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat in a best-of-five NL playoff series.
Reds left-hander Arroyo’s throwing error on a bunt by former teammate Wilson Valdez allowed a run to score. Arroyo yielded four hits.
Andres Torres left in the top of the third after being thrown out trying to stretch a double into a triple. Torres had flu-like symptoms.
Chris Heisey homered off Javier Lopez to tie the game at 3. It was his first of the spring.
