Batting recap: Stephen Drew, Orlando Hudson and Mark Reynolds finished with three hits each. Conor Jackson, who continued his outstanding spring, had two hits and three RBIs. Reynolds slammed his third home run in the third inning.
Pitching recap: Brandon Webb was pounced on for 10 hits and seven runs in 4 1/3 innings. Chad Qualls turned in a scoreless inning. He has allowed two earned runs in eight innings this spring. Tony Peña continues to work himself into shape. He gave up one hit in an inning of work.
Notable: The D’backs have 35 players remaining in camp. The team has 10 more cuts to make before Opening Day next week.
Quotable: “A good sign is that (Reynolds) and Stephen (Drew) are swinging a lot better now,” said Arizona manager Bob Melvin. “They were struggling to an extent. Mark had good at-bats every time up.”
