Homer Bailey throws 6 innings of 1-hit ball as Reds split squad beats Diamondbacks 9-0

Homer Bailey threw six innings of one-hit ball and a Cincinnati Reds split squad beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 9-0 on Saturday.

Bailey struck out seven, walked one and retired his final 10 hitters. Cliff Pennington's one-out single in the third was the only hit against the right-hander, and Gerardo Parra drew the lone walk two batters later.

Bailey also singled and scored during Cincinnati's three-run third inning. Four consecutive batters reached base with two outs against Arizona starter Wade Miley, including Joey Votto, who doubled home Bailey for the game's first run.

Miley also went six innings, giving up four runs and nine hits with two walks and three strikeouts.

Two of the Reds' four runs in the ninth came against Heath Bell, who has allowed six earned runs in his past three outings covering 2 2-3 innings.
