ROUND TWO WITH THE REDS: The Indians are scheduled to meet the Cincinnati
Reds for the second of three straight games to open the Cactus League slate, as the
squads will meet again tomorrow to complete the trifecta…Sunday’s affair will be a

Patrick’s Day) and March 30 (Cactus League finale)…Cleveland is 7-8-2 against the
club’s intrastate rivals all-time in Cactus League play…beginning with the inaugural
2010 campaign, the Indians won 5 straight and 6 of the first 8 meetings (6-1-1) here
in Arizona, but are 1-7-1 over the last 9 times Cleveland and Cincinnati have locked
horns…the regular season “Battle of Ohio” was a clean split (3-3) in 2012 as both
teams swept 3 game sets at their home parks…the Indians hold a 42-39 (.519) record
all-time against Cincinnati in regular season play…this year’s version of the Ohio Cup
will feature a home-and-home as the 2 clubs will play four straight games against
each from May 27-30 as the Reds will host the Tribe in the first 2 contests followed
by 2 games at Progressive Field…today’s game will be broadcast live on WTAM
1100AM, the Indians Radio Network and Indians.com.

FRIDAY’S RECAP: Reserve MIKE McDADE laced a one-out, 3-run double in the
bottom of the 9th inning to cap the Indians’ 11-10 walk-off victory over Cincinnati
in yesterday afternoon’s Cactus League opener at Goodyear Ballpark…McDade’s
opposite field game-winner was the last of 5 doubles collected by the Tribe, including
a pair by MICHAEL BRANTLEY. LONNIE CHISENHALL (3rd inning) and RYAN
RABURN (7th inning) each connected for their first homers of the spring, while
CARLOS SANTANA (2), ASDRUBAL CABRERA, NICK SWISHER and Brantley
all drove in runs…Swisher’s RBI-single came in his first plate appearance as a member
of the Indians in the bottom of the first…the Indians and Reds combined for 21
runs on 27 hits without either side committing a defensive miscue…the Tribe went
5-for-13 with RISP.
