|CINCINNATI: CINCINNATI (AP) - Bryan Price's father worked for a savings and loan that had San Francisco Giants season tickets and would make some of them available to employees.|
Any team was good to see. Two were best.
''So you go in there and battle for tickets to certain games,'' Price said. ''And I would circle the Reds and the Dodgers.''
He loved how the franchises were stocked with stars. He knew it would be fun watching them play his hometown Giants. He even dreamed of some playing or working for one of those teams.
That's why the last six weeks of spring training left him with a too-good-to-be-true feeling at times. He's managing the Reds, one of those teams he loved to see.
''It's almost a constant, surreal experience for me at this point,'' he said in February.
The surreal part gave way to reality pretty fast.
Starter Mat Latos had knee surgery the day spring training opened. Closer Aroldis Chapman got hit in the head by a line drive and is out for at least a month after having a plate put into his forehead. Starter Homer Bailey strained his groin. Relievers Jonathan Broxton and Sean Marshall aren't ready to start the season.
|MIAMI: MIAMI (AP) - The owner of the World Series champion Boston Red Sox is apparently unimpressed by the Miami Marlins' attempts to improve their feeble offense.|
''They should apologize for their regular season lineup,'' John Henry tweeted during spring training.
In 2013 the Marlins were truly sorry. They finished last in the majors in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, runs and home runs, and scored even less than their woeful 1993 expansion team. They also lost 100 games, two more than in their first season.
Henry was being catty after the Red Sox drew criticism for the minor league lineup they fielded for a spring game against Miami. But he might be right - it's unclear whether an offseason shakeup of the lineup will mean more runs for the Marlins than last year.
''We were anemic offensively,'' new general manager Dan Jennings said. ''Just bad. It's unacceptable.''

*Reds-Marlins Preview* ======================
By PAUL DIGIACOMO STATS Senior Editor
Cincinnati (54-54) at Miami (53-55), 7:10 p.m. EDT
A series with the Miami Marlins has helped the Cincinnati Reds get back on track.
The Reds go for an eighth straight win over the Marlins in the third of a four-game set Saturday night in Miami.
Cincinnati (55-54) had dropped 10 of 12 after the All-Star break before winning the first two of this series, including 5-2 on Friday night. The Reds have won six in a row at Marlins Park and nine of 10 overall meetings.
Friday was their highest-scoring game since the break and only their second with at least four runs. Cincinnati hasn't won three straight since a five-game run July 6-9.
"You certainly don't gain ground playing .500 ball, let alone 4-10 since the break," manager Bryan Price told MLB's official website. "We've kind of had to dig ourselves out of the hole we've been in before.
"It's something we're capable of doing. You get that feeling again like we're starting to get that confidence and the flow and the good feeling about ourselves back and the optimism. Those are all good things."
The Marlins (53-56) have lost three in a row following a six-game winning streak that was part of a 9-1 stretch. Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo homer for the third straight game, giving him 26 on the season.
Stanton is tied with Mike Lowell for third in franchise history with 143 home runs. Hanley Ramirez is next at 148 and Dan Uggla tops the list with 154.
"He's swinging the bat," manager Mike Redmond said. "We just have got to get a couple other guys in front of him on base consistently and get some other guys to get some big hits. We've been pretty quiet the last couple of days."
Cincinnati's Homer Bailey (8-5, 4.03 ERA) has been pitching well over the last month-plus but only has one win to show for it. That victory came June 29 at San Francisco when the right-hander threw a three-hit shutout, and the Reds have lost his last four starts despite Bailey posting a 2.67 ERA.
He allowed one run and five hits over eight innings of a 2-1, 15-inning defeat to Arizona on Monday as Cincinnati managed six hits and struck out 18 times. His teammates have handed him eight runs of support over his last four outings.
"There is a lot of heart on this club. We just kind of have to keep believing," Bailey said. "... It's not just the hitters, not the defense, not the pitching. Either we're going to have to find a way or we're going to be going home early."
Bailey went the distance in a 6-2 win at Miami on May 14, 2013, allowing six hits and striking out 10 without a walk. He's 2-1 with a 2.68 ERA in six starts against the Marlins.
Garrett Jones is 12 for 39 (.308) with two homers against Bailey, but he's also struck out 13 times.
Nathan Eovaldi (5-6, 4.37) has never faced Cincinnati, whose recent offensive struggles will be a welcome sight to the right-hander. Eovaldi is 0-2 with a 9.92 ERA over his last three starts, and he has posted a 6.41 ERA in his last nine while winning once.
The Marlins rallied from a 6-0 deficit and beat visiting Washington 7-6 on Monday to take Eovaldi off the hook after he gave up five runs in 5 1-3 innings. That performance left him 0-2 with a 9.67 ERA in his last five home starts.
