Indians rally, beat Reds 11-10 in spring opener
‘‘It was nice to get out there and shake the cobwebs off a little bit.’’
NOTES: INF/OF Ryan Raburn also homered for the Indians. He’s trying to win a utility job after spending several seasons with Detroit. ... Catchers Devin Mesoraco and Miguel Olivo homered for the Reds. .... The two teams will play again Saturday with Cincinnati as the home team in the ballpark shared by Ohio’s major leaguers. ... Francona met with baseball officials Joe Torre and Steve Palermo to discuss new rules, including the change that prohibits pitchers from faking to third and throwing to first. It’s now a balk. ‘‘I'm OK with it,’’ Francona said. ‘‘It was very difficult for umpires. I understand why they want to take it out.’’ .... The announced attendance was 3,188.
