GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Bryan Price won in his managerial debut, Ryan Ludwick and Joey Votto singled home runs, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cleveland Indians 8-3 on Wednesday. Chris Heisey hit a two-run homer and a double in the spring training opener for both Ohio teams.
Billy Hamilton, who stole 13 bases for the Reds last September, drew a walk and stole a base as the Reds leadoff hitter. The center fielder also grounded out to third and bunted out to first.
Price was elevated from pitching coach to manager when the Reds fired Dusty Baker after last season despite their third playoff appearance in four years. Price managed a game for the first time at any level.
Ludwick has recovered from a shoulder injury that cost him most of last season and limited him after his return. Ryan Raburn doubled and scored for the Indians.
