Heisey's 6th homer helps Reds beat Royals 9-3

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Chris Heisey hit his sixth spring-training homer and tripled, helping the Cincinnati Reds to beat a Kansas City Royals' split squad 9-3 Friday.

Heisey, a backup outfielder, also made a perfect throw from the center-field wall to second baseman Kristopher Negron, who threw out Alcides Escobar trying to stretch an extra-base hit into a triple in the fifth. Escobar played his first game since March 9 after recovering from a sore right forearm.

Brett Marshall started in place of Homer Bailey, who threw a bullpen session and is expected to pitch in a minor league exhibition on Sunday. Marshall allowed two runs, two hits and three walks in four innings with four strikeouts.

Royals starter James Shields gave up five runs and six hits in six innings with six strikeouts and no walks.

Negron hit a two-run homer in the third. Neftali Soto had a three-run homer in the eighth against Donnie Joseph, Soto's third home run of the exhibition season.

Reds leftfielder Skip Schumaker left the game holding his left arm in the seventh after diving to try for Angel Franco's liner, which landed for a double.
