Price wins managerial debut, Reds top Indians

GOODYEAR, Ariz. — Bryan Price won in his managerial debut, Ryan Ludwick and Joey Votto singled home runs, and the Cincinnati Reds beat the Cleveland Indians 8-3 on Wednesday.

Price was elevated from pitching coach to manager when the Reds fired Dusty Baker after last season despite their third playoff appearance in four years. Price managed a game for the first time at any level.

Chris Heisey hit a two-run homer and a double in the spring training opener for both Ohio teams. Ludwick has recovered from a shoulder injury that cost him most of last season and limited him after his return.

Billy Hamilton, who stole 13 bases for the Reds last September, drew a walk and stole a base as the Reds leadoff hitter.

Ryan Raburn doubled and scored for the Indians.
