Giants rally to win spring debut

SCOTTSDALE, AZ — Chris Marrero hit a three-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and drove in four runs as the San Francisco Giants rallied for a 6-4 win after Madison Bumgarner gave up two runs on two hits to the Cincinnati Reds in the top of the first.

Marrero, a 2006 first-round draft pick of the Nationals trying to revive his career as a non-roster invitee, had an RBI single in the fifth.

Kevin Shackelford, the seventh Cincinnati pitcher, walked Orlando Calixte to open the ninth and Christian Arroyo blooped a single into left field before Marrero hit a line drive over the wall in left centerfield.

Patrick Kivlehan had a two-run single off Bumgarner in the first and Hunter Pence doubled in a run off Reds starter Rookie Davis. Davis, acquired from the Yankees in the Aroldis Chapman deal, is likely to open with Double-A Pensacola this year.
