The Cleveland Indians fell 9-4 to the Arizona Diamondbacks in a game which the Tribe committed an uncharacteristic four errors.
Cleveland quickly found themselves down 4-0 in the first three frames of the 7-inning contest, in which Zach Plesac (2.0 IP) gave up four hits and three runs in his spring debut, while striking out two.
"I think I just got into some deep counts," said Plesac after the game. "Overall, I felt good. I didn't want to go in there and walk anyone. I wanted to just attack, let my pitches work."
James Karinchak, Phil Maton, Heath Hembree, and Kyle Dowdy each saw an inning of work in relief of Plesac, along with Bryan Shaw (0.2 IP) and Adam Scott (0.1 IP).
In the lineup, Franmil Reyes and Daniel Johnson led the way. Johnson went 1-for-2 with an RBI double in the bottom of the third, while Reyes (also 1-for-2) roped a solo home run in the bottom of the fourth that hit the bottom of the scoreboard over the deep left center wall - his first of camp.
The Indians (2-2 in Goodyear) with play again Thursday at 3:10 p.m. against the Milwaukee Brewers.
