Spring training 2013: Dodgers, Reds game called by rain

No multiple tarp removals at Camelback Ranch - craigminami TrueBlueLA

WIth the only positive being Chris Capuano getting his 4 innings in, the nightcap of the split squad day was called after 1 hour and 16 minutes with no rain delays

The earlier game at Scottsdale against the Giants featured multiple visits by the tarp removal crew and two different rain delays totaling 56 minutes. Tonight's game was marathon in comparison.

Chris Capuano and a lineup that might have been even less impressive than Thursday's faced the Reds at Camelback with a game time temperature of 50 degrees. Billy Hamilton led off with a grounder to first and Capuano later said he slightly hesitated and Hamilton beat Capuano to first.

Both Mattingly and Capuano were impressed by Hamilton's base-stealing style, Mattingly said he took short little leads and was always moving while Capuano kept trying to keep him close but he stole second anyway and took third on the bad throw. He later scored on Ludwick's double.

Dee Gordon, who has been on base quite frequently lately, led off the bottom of the first with a double. He later stole third without a throw and scored on a ground ball to a drawn in second baseman, again without a throw.

Capuano pitched well the remaining of his evening and then in the bottom of the fourth, Scott Van Slyke hit a booming double to the gap to score two runs and give the Dodgers the 3-1 lead.

After the third out was made, the Dodgers, Reds and umpires decided to call the game after 1 hour and 16 minutes.
