Joey Votto homered and hit an RBI single Friday as the Cincinnati Reds beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-3.
The World Series champion Phillies are 0-3 in spring training and have scored a total of seven runs.
Reds starter Bronson Arroyo gave up a run in two innings. Arroyo faced nine batters and walked one with no strikeouts.
"It usually takes two starts into the season before I feel I'm really game ready," he said. "This year, maybe I can go deeper in games toward the end."
Juan Francisco and Jonny Gomes hit consecutive doubles off Andrew Carpenter in the Reds' four-run first inning. Francisco, a 21-year-old outfielder, has 48 home runs over the last two seasons in Single-A Dayton and Sarasota.
"He's what you want to see in a young hitter," Baker said. "He's aggressive. You want someone you can tone down, not tone up. His strikeouts are from inexperience, but you can turn that flame down. It's hard to turn it up."
■ Pitchers Johnny Cueto and Ramon Ramirez agreed to one-year deals with the Reds on Friday. The Reds did not release any other contract details. Both right-handers made their major-league debuts last season.
Uehara debuts for O's
Koji Uehara pitched in dozens of important games during his outstanding career in Japan, yet few provided him with the elation he experienced Friday in his debut with the Orioles.
Eager to prove himself in the major leagues, the right-hander threw two scoreless innings in the Orioles' 3-2 loss to the Marlins. Uehara allowed a lost-in-the-sun single, walked one and struck out three.
"To be able to stand on that mound was joyful," Uehara said through an interpreter. "It was really fun."
Uehara pitched 10 seasons with the Yomiuri Giants, Japan's equivalent to the New York Yankees. He signed with Baltimore as a free agent during the off-season, becoming the first Japanese-born player in Orioles history.
Twenty-two of Uehara's 33 pitches were strikes. And he did it all with only two pitches — a fastball and forkball.
Uehara has been set as the No. 2 man in the Baltimore rotation behind Jeremy Guthrie.
Around the league
Diamondbacks: Ace Brandon Webb was scratched from his first spring start Friday because of a sore right forearm. Webb threw off flat ground Friday morning and said his arm felt better than it had the previous day, and he expects to make his next scheduled start March 4 against Mexico in Tucson.
Mets: Johan Santana was scratched from his second straight start because of a sore left elbow. After Santana missed a scheduled "B" game appearance Friday against Italy's national team, the Mets said their ace would not take his turn Tuesday against St. Louis.
Phillies: Right-hander Adam Eaton was released Friday. The 31-year-old, originally selected by the Phillies in the first round of the 1996 amateur draft, was 10-10 with a 6.29 ERA in 2007, his first season after agreeing to a $24.5 million, three-year contract as a free agent.
