Raburn homers twice as Indians top Reds 13-10
CLEVELAND 13, CINCINNATI 10

By TOM WITHERS
AP Sports Writer

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Once the Tigers tossed Ryan Raburn aside,
the Indians happily snagged him.



Raburn helped his chances to make Cleveland's roster as a
utility player by hitting two more homers Saturday, and the
Indians outlasted the Cincinnati Reds 13-10 in another
high-scoring exhibition between Ohio's major leaguers.



Raburn also homered in Friday's spring opener and has connected
for a homer in his three at-bats this spring, driving in five
runs.



He was released by Detroit in November following a disappointing
season. Raburn opened 2012 as the Tigers' starting second
baseman, but batted just .171 in 66 games and was demoted to the
minor leagues. When Indians manager Terry Francona was hired in
October, he targeted Raburn, telling general manager Chris
Antonetti that if the 31-year-old ever became available to scoop
him up.



"Sometimes by the luck of the draw you might have a chance to
get a guy like that," Francona said. "Maybe we caught a break."



Raburn can play second, third, right or left field. His
versatility is what initially attracted him to Francona, who has
seen players in the past move to a new team and thrive.



"He had a tough year," Francona said. "That happens. If he would
have had a good year, we wouldn't have had a chance to get him."



Raburn hit six homers with 19 RBIs last spring in Detroit's
camp.



For the second straight day, hitters on both teams teed off on
pitchers still working on mechanics and location. The Reds and
Indians have combined for 44 runs and 62 hits while playing for
6 hours, 47 minutes.



Shin-Soo Choo singled and scored twice for the Reds, who plan to
bat the center fielder in the leadoff spot this season.
Cincinnati had the NL's lowest on-base percentage from the top
of the order last year, and manager Dusty Baker believes Choo
can get the Reds started.



Choo, who batted in the No. 1 spot 98 times for the Indians in
2012, has reached base three times and scored three runs in two
games.



"That's what Choo is here for," Baker said. "You can read into
it as much as you like. We like that if he gets on like this,
think of the year that Brandon (Phillips) is going to have Joey
(Votto), (Ryan) Ludwick and (Jay) Bruce. This is going to be
exciting."



Indians starter Brett Myers allowed two earned runs in two
innings. The right-hander is in Cleveland's rotation after
making 70 relief appearances for Houston and the White Sox a
year ago. He still doesn't understand why the Astros made him a
reliever after he started 66 games in two seasons - "Call them.
I still don't know," he said - and he's focused on pitching as
many innings as he can for the Indians.



"It's all pitching. It's all about getting people out," he said.
"I don't want them (relievers) to have the workload. It's not
too good to have four or five guys with 70 appearances. That's
tough on the guy's arms. So if I can get us deep into ballgames
and minimize their appearances, they'll be fresh in the second
half."



NOTES: INF Neftali Soto had four hits for the Reds. ... Indians
LF Michael Brantley is 4-for-4 after two games. ... Jason Giambi
flied out to the warning track in his first at-bat and walked.
The 42-year-old isn't a lock to make Cleveland's roster, but
Francona has no concerns that the slugger has lost any bat
speed. "He's got a pretty good idea of what he's doing,"
Francona said. ... RHP Daisuke Matszuaka will make his debut for
the Indians on Sunday in a split-squad game against the Reds.
He's trying to win the No. 5 spot in Cleveland's rotation. ...
The Indians will also send a split squad to Maryvale to face the
Brewers.
