Reds’ Phillips, Duvall hurt Salazar in 9-1 win vs Indians

The Reds obtained Duvall from San Francisco for Mike Leake at the trade deadline.

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) – Brandon Phillips had a sacrifice fly and Adam Duvall added a two-run single in the first inning off Danny Salazar, leading the Cincinnati Reds to a 9-1 win over the Cleveland Indians.

The Reds obtained Duvall from San Francisco for Mike Leake at the trade deadline.

Anthony DeSclafani and veteran free agent Jonathan Sanchez pitched two hitless innings each before Joey Butler singled in the fifth off J.J. Hoover, who is the favorite to replace Aroldis Chapman as the Reds’ closer.

Tyler Naquin’s single and Joey Votto’s throwing error sent Butler to third. Erik Gonzalez’ sacrifice fly scored Butler, a waiver pick up from Tampa Bay.

Jay Bruce doubled off Bryan Shaw, the Indians’ setup man, to start a five-run inning. Six straight Reds reached base off Shaw.

Juan Duran, who was suspended 80 games by Major League Baseball for using performance-enhancing substances, homered off Will Roberts.
