Clayton Richard makes his third start of the Spring today as the Padres head to Goodyear to take on the Reds at 1:05 pm PT. His last time out he threw three solid innings of one-run ball, keeping the Angels to two hits and a walk. It was a big improvement over his disastrous Spring debut, when he gave up six earned runs on eight hits and a walk and was taken out of the game before even recording an out in the second inning.
Cincinnati will also send a left-hander to the mound to start today’s game. Cody Reed, who looks to secure a rotation spot going into the regular season, will make his fourth appearance of the Spring against the visiting Padres. Through his first three outings, hes thrown a combined 7 1/3 innings, allowing four earned runs on six hits, two walks, and a hit batsman. Hes also collected eight Cactus League strikeouts.
