CIncinnati Reds: Tony Cingrani pitches three hitless innings in 3-2 loss to San Francisco Giants

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- There was good news and bad news from the Reds pitching staff in their 3-2 loss to the San Francisco Giants Thursday afternoon.

Reds starter Tony Cingrani pitched three hitless, scoreless innings. He walked three and struck out three.

But right-hander Chien-Ming Wang gave up all three runs (two earned) in the fifth inning.

Wang, a 19-game winner for the Yankees in 2006 and 2007, is trying to make a comeback from injuries.

He gave up four hits and struck out five.

The Reds played only two starters: catcher Devin Mesaraco and third baseman Todd Frazier.

Giants starter Tim Hudson also pitched three scoreless innings, allowing two of the Reds' five hits.

The Giants went hitless until Pablo Sandoval led off the fifth with a homer off Wang.
