GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Ryan Raburn played the field for the first time since running into an outfield wall and also homered Monday as the Cleveland Indians beat the Cincinnati Reds 8-3.

Raburn doubled while driving in three runs. He made a nice play at first base, too, on a low liner by Brayan Pena.

Raburn had been limited to designated hitter duty since crashing into the right-field wall on March 7.

Lonnie Chisenhall found out earlier in the morning that he earned a spot on the Indians' opening day roster. He celebrated with his second homer this spring, connecting off starter Alfredo Simon.

Jay Bruce had two hits, including an RBI double off Indians starter Carlos Carrasco.

Jason Kipnis hit a three-run homer off J.J. Hoover, who is one of the Reds' options for the closer role with Aroldis Chapman recovering from being hit above the eye by a line drive.
