PHOENIX – Josh Reddick hit three-run home run in the third inning, leading the Oakland Athletics to a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.
Reddick entered the game with one hit in his first eight at-bats of spring training but broke out of the slump with two hits. Brandon Moss also homered for the A's.
Oakland starter Tommy Milone pitched two scoreless innings in his first start. Milone again figures to be an integral part of the starting rotation after going 13-10 last season and leading the team in innings pitched with 190.
Jhoulys Chacin started for the Rockies and allowed three runs on four hits over 2 1-3 innings in his second start. Last season Chacin was limited to 14 starts because of right shoulder inflammation.
