Desmond, Moreland homer, Rangers beat Reds 11-5

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Ian Desmond and Mitch Moreland each hit their first homers of the spring, leading the Texas Rangers over the Cincinnati Reds 11-5 on Wednesday.

Desmond signed with the Rangers after spring training had already started. The longtime Washington shortstop is being moved to left field by Texas.

Chi Chi Gonzalez, trying to earn the fifth starter's role for Texas, pitched three scoreless innings. The Rangers turned two double plays behind him.

Tyler Holt, who is in the mix for the Reds' open left field job, had two hits. Adam Duvall, another competitor for the outfield job, was 0 for 3 and dropped a fly ball that allowed a run.

Tim Melville started for Cincinnati in place of Michael Lorenzen, who has inflammation in his right elbow. Melville allowed Moreland's solo homer.

Drew Stubbs hit a two-run homer for Texas off Ryan Mattheus.
