Frazier, Heisey homer as Reds beat Dodgers 8-2

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Paul Maholm allowed six runs and six hits, including homers to Todd Frazier and Chris Heisey, as the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to the Cincinnati Reds 8-2 Thursday.

Frazier hit second homer this spring in the first inning off Maholm, who is competing with Josh Beckett for the No. 5 spot in the Dodgers' rotation.

Heisey connected for a three-run shot in the third, his fourth.

Maholm was making his third appearance of spring training since signing a one-year, $1.5 million contract with the Dodgers on Feb. 8.

The Dodgers scored in the fourth on Justin Turner's sacrifice fly. In the fifth, Hanley Ramirez hit his second homer this spring, a powerful shot to left.

The Dodgers played for the second straight day without manager Don Mattingly, who left camp because of a death in his family. Bench coach Tim Wallach was acting manager.
