Ryan Raburn hits 2-run homer off Homer Bailey, powers Indians to a 4-0 win against Reds
GOODYEAR, Ariz. – Ryan Raburn hit a two-run home run off Homer Bailey to lead the Cleveland Indians to its second straight win over the Cincinnati Reds, 4-0 Friday.
Lonnie Chisenhall, who is trying to hold on to the third base job in Cleveland, walked to set up the Raburn's second-inning drive off Bailey, who tossed his second career no-hitter last season.
Indians likely closer Jon Axford walked one and struck out two in a scoreless inning.
Cleveland scored two runs of Robert Stephenson in his first major league spring appearance. Stephenson was the Reds first pick in the 2011 draft.
Jay Bruce and Ryan Ludwick hit consecutive singles in the fourth off Josh Tomlin for two of the Reds' three hits.
Reds' closer Aroldis Chapman struck out all three batters he faced.
