Reds dodge rain to edge Rockies

Brayan Pena doubled and scored on Santiago’s single. Neftali Soto doubled home a run.

Pena and Satiago both played in Detroit last season.

Nelson Arenado had three singles and an RBI for the Rockies. Former Reds infielder Paul Janish singled and scored two runs.

The game was played despite the first rain in the Phoenix area since Dec. 21.

Chien-Ming Wang pitched for Cincinnati for the first time this spring. He allowed one run on five hits, striking out two.

Brewers (SS) 6, Dodgers 5: Ryan Braun ignored loud boos in his home spring debut, producing a single and a walk as a Milwaukee Brewers split squad beat the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Braun’s first at-bat was met with a vocal and extended chorus of boos, especially from the third-base side loaded with a large contingent of Dodgers fans.

Braun walked and scored on a single by Carlos Gomez. In the third, Brewers fans on the first-base side tried to drown out the boos with a louder round of cheers before his infield single.

The former NL MVP was suspended for the final 65 games of the season last year for his role in the Biogenesis drug scandal. Braun homered Thursday in his first at-bat of exhibition play at Oakland’s park.

Milwaukee starter Kyle Lohse threw two perfect innings. Los Angeles starter Dan Haren allowed a run in two innings.

Nationals 16, Braves 15: Jordan Zimmermann breezed through two shutout innings with only 20 pitches for the Washington Nationals in what turned into a wild win over Atlanta.

Zimmermann, who tied for the NL lead with 19 wins last season, gave up one hit and struck out one in his brief appearance.
