PHOENIX (AP) - Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer and Josh Reddick had a solo home run to help power the Oakland Athletics to an 8-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday.

Derek Norris went 3-for-4 with two RBIs and two runs scored for Oakland. Starter Tommy Milone struggled at times, but lasted five innings and gave up three earned runs on five hits.

Brandon Phillips hit a solo home run, finishing 2-for-3 for the Reds. Phillips has not hit well this spring, but six of his 10 hits have been for extra bases - including five home runs.

Billy Hamilton drove in a pair of runs for the Reds with two sacrifice flies.

Cincinnati benefited from three Oakland errors. Jason Bourgeois reached base twice on errors by shortstop Jed Lowrie and second baseman Eric Sogard and scored. Zack Cozart reached on a throwing error by third baseman Josh Donaldson and scored.
