GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Carlos Santana homered and doubled off Cincinnati starter Armando Galarraga on Saturday, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 9-1 victory over a Reds split squad in the final spring training game for both teams.
The Reds played their minor leaguers.
Billy Hamilton was 1 for 3 with a run scored for Cincinnati. The speedster who Reds brass expect big things from ends Spring Training with a .192 batting average.
Farmhand outfielder Felix Perez continued to impress in limited duty this spring. Despite going 1 for 4 at the plate the 28-year-old drove in the lone run for the Reds. Perez was 5 for 9 with three runs, two triples and two RBIs this preseason.
Santana hit his second home run of the spring in the fourth, a solo shot. Mark Reynolds, a free agent signed to DH, walked and scored on a single by Matt Carson.
Carson hit his fifth home run of the spring with a runner on in the fifth inning against Cincinnati's Jose Diaz.
Brett Myers pitched five innings for Cleveland, allowing one run and three hits. He struck out three.
Galarraga, who will start the season at Triple-A Louisville, allowed two runs on five hits and four walks in four innings.
