GOODYEAR, Ariz. (WKRC) - Zack Cozart connected for a two-run homer in the fourth inning, his second of the spring, to help lift the Reds to an 8-7 victory over the Padres.

It was a mixed bag for Reds starter Cody Reed, who gave up two earned runs, but also struck out seven batters in three and two-thirds innings. Michael Lorenzen earned the win, despite surrendering three runs in two innings.

Cincinnati has Thursday off, and will take on the Cleveland Indians Friday at Goodyear.
