Tribe takes two

By Sheldon Ocker Published: February 24, 2013

   PHOENIX: Carlos Santana and Ezequiel Carrera homered to give the Indians seven home runs in four exhibition games, as the Tribe won twice on split-squad today, beating the Brewers 7-4 and shutting out the Reds 3-0 in Goodyear.
   Santana’s first homer of the spring came with a man on in the third inning; Carrera’s solo blast came in the sixth.
   For the first time this spring, Ryan Rayburn did not go deep. But he did have a single in two at-bats. In his first two games, he was 3-for-3 with three home runs.
   Carlos Carrasco, Scott Kazmir and Trevor Bauer, all vying for the rotation, pitched the first five innings, and David Huff delivered two scoreless innings beginning in the sixth. Huff gave up one hit and struck out two. 
   Back at Goodyear Ballpark, seven pitchers held the Reds to one hit. 
   Zach McAllister and Daisuke Matsuzaka each threw two scoreless innings; Jerry Gil threw 11/3 innings; Cody Allen, T.J. House and Preston Guilmet pitched one inning apiece.
   Rich Hill threw two-thirds of an inning and allowed the only hit plus two walks. He also struck out two.
   Olin Santos doubled and drove two runs.
