GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Buster Posey had a three-run homer off Tony Cingrani among his three hits, leading the San Francisco Giants over the Cincinnati Reds 8-5 Tuesday.

Posey added an RBI double and a single as the Giants overcame a three-run deficit.

The Reds scored three quick runs off Tim Hudson.

Todd Frazier doubled home two runs in the first. Billy Hamilton doubled home Skip Schumaker, who started in left field, giving the Reds the lead after two innings.

Hunter Pence started his second game after resting a sore shoulder. He tripled after Posey's home run.

Ehire Adrianza hit his second home run of the spring, a two-run shot off Cingrani, who allowed six runs after pitching seven scoreless innings, including the first two innings of this appearance.

Schumaker, who signed a two-year deal with the Reds in November, doubled and hit a solo home run off Hudson. He is hitting .550 this spring.
