GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) Jean Segura had three hits and Phil Gosselin hit a three-run homer to help the Arizona Diamondbacks rough up Brandon Finnegan and beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 Sunday.

Arizona sent 10 batters to the plate and scored six runs in the first inning against Finnegan, who has likely earned a place in the Reds rotation.

Segura has hit safely in each of his nine games this spring and is batting .571 (20 for 35).

The Reds played nearly their entire projected starting lineup and got to Arizona starter Shelby Miller early. Billy Hamilton bunted to lead off and got to second on Miller's error. Hamilton scored on a force, then Devin Mesoraco doubled in two more runs in his second game since having hip surgery.

Miller allowed three unearned runs in the first, but threw four scoreless after that.
