Spring Training Game Thread 3/4 Reds vs Pirates at Bradenton; Part 2

With all the confusion this morning, I'm only mostly sure that this is the line-up for this afternoon's game:

ST Game 4B: Reds 5, Pirates 0

It was a B game that was scheduled on the fly, was only six innings long, and wasn't covered much by anyone, but the Reds won anyway. I haven't got a boxscore, but here's what C. Trent says:

Dewayne Wise was 2-for-2 with 2 RBIs. Michael Gosling -- in for Bronson Arroyo, suffering from “flu-like symptoms” (no word if it's the same flu he suffered with on media day in Pittsbrugh for the All-Star Game last year) -- started, went 2 innings, gave up a walk and a hit and struck out 3 B-Pirates. David Weathers, in his spring debut, 1 inning, 1 hit, 2 walks, 1 K. Phil Dumatrait, 2 innings, 1 hit, 2 Ks. Jared Burton, 1 inning, 1 K.

The win would have brought the Reds' spring training record to 4-0, if it had counted. However, the A game that's about to begin will count. Homer Bailey is taking the mound.

Spring Training Game Thread 3/4 Reds vs Pirates at Bradenton; Part 1

Much to my surprise, the Reds scheduled a game with the Pirates today at 10 a.m. I can't find any way to find out what's going on with the game, but I hate not to have a game thread up since I've been enjoying them so much lately.

UPDATED 11:06 a.m.
I'm finding this whole situation very confusing, but from what I can put together, the “B” game, which is of course happening first, is what's going on right now in a secondary field at McKechnie Field in Bradenton. Bronson Arroyo was scheduled to start, but he's “sick” (i.e. didn't want to get up this early) so Michael Gosling is going instead.

You can try your hand at figuring out what's going on at C. Trent's site if you're so inclined.

No one is covering this game for the media. It's a six-inning affair, but there should be some actual coverage for the one at 1 p.m.
