Reds outlast the Angels

On a gorgeous 78-degree and sunny day in Arizona, the Reds (4-3-1) beat the Angels (5-4) 5-4, as newly acquired Mat Latos made the start, while former Reds' nemesis and new Halo Albert Pujols did not play. Here are the good, the bad, and the notables from a lazy Sunday:

The Good:
-Dioner Navarro had a good day going 2-2 with a double and two RBIs.
-Miguel Cairo made the most of his one AB, by getting a hit, an RBI, and a run scored.
-Jay #Bruuuuuce had a hit, an RBI, and a run scored and is hitting .500 during the spring, despite a 1-4 performance Sunday.
-Prospect Donald Lutz went 1-2 with an RBI and a run scored.
-Brett Tomko threw two hitless innings.
-Jose Arredondo, Kanekoa Texeira, and Ron Mahay each threw a scoreless inning, with Arredondo getting all three of his outs via the strikeout.
-Devin Mesoraco threw out two runers trying to steal second base.

The Bad:
-Kris Negron went 0-2, striking out both times and is batting just .071 in Spring Training.
-Logan Ondrusek allowed two runs, on four hits in just one inning of work, though he did pick up the save.

The Notables:
-4,471 fans took to the stands to cheer on the Reds and Angels.
-On Monday, the Reds will travel to Mesa to take on the Cubs at 4:05pm.
