SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo left his start after getting hit on his pitching hand by David Murphy's line drive Sunday in Cincinnati's 7-2 loss to the Texas Rangers.
Preliminary X-rays detected no break. Arroyo allowed three runs and nine hits in 5 1-3 innings before being led off the field by a trainer.
Lance Berkman homered and drove in three runs for Texas, while Alexi Ogando pitched six scoreless innings.
Craig Gentry tripled in the first and scored on Berkman's sacrifice fly. Berkman's fourth-inning homer landed in the Rangers' bullpen beyond the right-field fence with Gentry aboard.
Ogando, set to be a starter this season after spending last year in the bullpen, limited the Reds to three hits. He walked one and struck out five, throwing 56 strikes in 82 pitches.
