Volquez struggles in final spring start

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Reds right-hander Edinson Volquez pitched five shaky innings in a tuneup for his start on opening day, and the San Diego Padres beat Cincinnati 10-4 Friday.

Volquez allowed three runs on nine hits and four walks in his final outing before facing Milwaukee next week.

Ryan Ludwick homered and Jorge Cantu had three hits for the Padres. San Diego broke a 3-all tie in the seventh with four runs as Reds backups lost two fly balls in the sun and committed an error.

Casey Kelly, who was reassigned to minor league camp on March 15, started for San Diego. The 21-year-old acquired in a trade with Boston for Adrian Gonzalez allowed three runs in four innings.
