INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Tucker Barnhart got three hits and the Cincinnati Reds took advantage of the windy conditions to beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 13-6 Saturday in a spring training wrapup.
The Pirates open the 2016 major league season Sunday afternoon, hosting St. Louis.
With gusts estimated at 40 mph, Barnhart had a wind-aided double. He also singled during a seven-run burst in the third inning.
Reds starter Alfredo Simon gave up four runs in four innings.
David Freese and Max Moroff homered for the Pirates.
