CUBS 8, REDS 6 MESA, Ariz. (AP) -- Alfonso Soriano hit his fourth home run this spring and Paul Maholm pitched two innings in his exhibition debut as the Cubs beat Cincinnati. Maholm missed a handful of days early in spring because of the flu. He allowed two hits, including a solo homer by Todd Frazier. Reds starter Bronson Arroyo gave up hits to the first five Cubs batters, with Soriano's shot nearly clearing the scoreboard in left-center field. GIANTS 2, ROYALS 1 SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Tim Lincecum pitched four solid innings and the San Francisco Giants beat the Kansas City Royals. Lincecum gave up an unearned run and an infield single, on a ball hit off his foot. The ace right-hander was knocked around for five runs and seven hits in his previous outing. Royals prospects Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas left in the fifth inning with injuries. Hosmer hurt his right shoulder when he landed awkwardly diving for a ground ball in the fifth. He was checked out by the team doctor and could be able to play Tuesday. Moustakas had a bruised right knee after he was hit by a pitch from Santiago Casilla in the bottom half. He will be re-evaluated on Tuesday. INDIANS 3, DIAMONDBACKS 2 GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Shelley Duncan visited with dad Dave, then drove in two runs to help Cleveland beat Arizona. Arizona starter Joe Saunders left after being hit on the side of the left shin by a line drive off the bat of Carlos Santana in the first inning. The left-hander said he was taken out of the game as a precaution. Duncan played in front of his father -- the former St. Louis pitching coach -- for the first time since he was in college more than a decade ago. DODGERS 9, ANGELS 1 TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Juan Rivera and Justin Sellers homered and the Los Angeles Dodgers tagged Angels ace Jered Weaver. Weaver allowed four hits and three runs and didn't make it out of the third inning in his second spring start. Dodgers starter Aaron Harang allowed one run and three hits in three innings in his second spring start. MARINERS 6, RANGERS 4 PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- Miguel Olivo hit a three-run homer and Jesus Montero had a two-run double to lead Seattle over Texas. The Mariners' big hits came after Seattle starter Blake Beavan, a former Rangers prospect, lasted five innings in his longest start of the spring. He allowed two runs and three hits, including Nelson Cruz's home run. Olivo homered against Rangers closer Joe Nathan. ROCKIES 11, PADRES 2 SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Jeremy Guthrie pitched four solid innings, Willin Rosario hit a three-run homer during Colorado's eight-run seventh inning and the Rockies beat San Diego. Guthrie, acquired in a Feb. 6 trade with Baltimore, gave up a home run to Cameron Maybin to lead off the game. The right-hander allowed just one hit the rest of the way while striking out three. ATHLETICS 9, WHITE SOX 4 GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- White Sox starter Jake Peavy allowed six runs and eight hits in just 2 1-3 innings of his second spring training start, and the Oakland Athletics beat Chicago. Peavy left with the bases loaded and one out in the third after yielding four consecutive singles and a walk. Tyson Ross, a candidate to join Oakland's staff, pitched three scoreless innings. He struck out two, walked two and gave up three hits.
