Chris Capuano effective, Ramon Castro hits 3-run HR before Reds and Dodgers rained out

Chris Capuano pitched four solid innings and Ramon Castro hit a three-run homer for the Dodgers before their split-squad game against the Cincinnati Reds was rained out with Los Angeles leading 3-1 on Friday night.

The game was called after four innings, the second rainout of the day for both teams. Earlier at Scottsdale Stadium, rain and hail ended a Dodgers-Giants game in the second inning with Los Angeles ahead 4-0. Cincinnati's other split squad was tied 1-all with the Chicago Cubs in the second inning Friday night before that game was called.

The rain at Camelback Ranch started in the second inning. It increased in the third and fourth, leaving the field muddy.

Capuano gave up a run and two hits. Reds starter Bronson Arroyo worked three innings, allowing one run and one hit.
