GOODYEAR — Brennan Boesch hit his third home run of the spring, connecting against Sergio Romo in the Cincinnati Reds' 10-4 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Monday.

Boesch, who signed with the Reds after playing in the minor leagues last season, is trying to win the job of fourth outfielder in Cincinnati.

Romo, who re-signed with the Giants after testing free agency, made his first appearance of the spring after he recovered from a sore shoulder.

Rasiel Iglesias and Paul Maholm, who are in the mix for two openings in the Reds' starting rotation, started.

Iglesias pitched 2 2-3 hitless innings. Maholm gave up a two-run home run to Joaquin Arias.

Jay Bruce and Skip Schumaker went deep against Kyle Crick with two-run homers. Former Giant prospect Chris Dominguez homered off Adalbeto Mejia.

Chris Stratton, most likely headed to Triple-A, started in place of Tim Lincecum, who has a stiff neck.
