Recap: Arizona vs. Cincinnati

Scottsdale, AZ (Sports Network) - Donald Lutz went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and five RBI as the Reds took a 14-6 triumph over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Arizona starter Brandon McCarthy, who made an appearance on the mound for the first time since brain surgery last fall, struck out four batters and allowed one earned run on three hits.
