Arroyo, Reds beat Hudson, Diamondbacks 6-1

PHOENIX (AP) - Bronson Arroyo allowed one run - unearned because of his own throwing error - in six innings, Jonny Gomes doubled in two runs in the ninth and the Cincinnati Reds overcame a strong pitching performance by Daniel Hudson to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-1 on Saturday night.

Arroyo (2-0) scattered eight hits as the Diamondbacks failed to convert two scoring threats in the first four innings, then Arizona reliever Juan Gutierrez's throwing error cleared the way for the Reds' four-run ninth.

Hudson (0-2) gave up two runs on three hits in seven innings, striking out eight and walking three.

After scoring twice in the first inning, the Reds had only two baserunners in the next six against the 24-year-old right-hander, and neither got past first base.
