In a game that will surely have people discussing the Mat Latos trade once again, Edison Volquez pitched his best game of Spring Training and Yonder Alonso scored 2 runs as the Padres (13-9) beat the Reds (9-12) As we know, those were 2 of the 4 players sent in the trade to bring Latos to the Reds. However, it is important to remember that it is just ONE spring training game and let's not overreact about the trade just yet. Let's take a look at the rest of the game with a quick overview looking once again at the good, the bad, and the notables.
-Zack Cozart had another great day at the ballpark. He scored both runs, while also earning a walk and stealing a base.
-Sean Marshall pitched 2 perfect innings in relief and struck out 3.
-Carlos Fisher pitched a solid 2 innings in relief. He gave up 3 hits but did not allow a run and struck out 3 as well.
-The Reds pitchers worked well with their catchers catching 3 Padres trying to steal a base.
