White Sox & Reds Play to 5-5 Tie
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Brandon Phillips got his first two hits of spring training, including a two-run homer, and the Cincinnati Reds blew a four-run lead in the ninth on Sunday before settling for a 5-5 tie with the Chicago White Sox.

The second baseman was 0 for 14 before he singled home Drew Stubbs. Phillips added a two-run homer off J.J. Putz in the seventh inning, putting the Reds ahead 5-1. Minor leaguer Jordan Smith gave up four runs in the ninth, and the teams called it a tie.

Chicago starter John Danks struggled, giving up six hits, four walks and three runs, two earned, in 3 2-3 innings. Left-hander Matt Maloney, who is competing for the fifth spot in Cincinnati's rotation, gave up three hits in three scoreless innings.
