    MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Cincinnati scored five runs in the first inning en route to a 6-2 victory over Toronto on Friday night.

    Danny Graves (2-0) started for Cincinnati and was credited with the win, even though he only pitched the first inning. Five relievers pitched one inning each before Steve Kelly took over in the sixth and allowed one run in three innings.

    Cincinnati scored five runs off losing pitcher Pete Walker (1-1) in the first inning. Joe Randa and D'Angelo Jimenez hit RBI singles, Sean Casey had an RBI double and Austin Kearns and Rich Aurilia added RBI ground outs. Toronto shortstop Russ Adams also committed two throwing errors.

    Walker also allowed a triple by Kearns and Adam Dunn's RBI single in the second inning.

    Brandon League followed Walker with three hitless innings, as the Reds pulled their starters from the game.

    Scott Schoeneweis pitched two scoreless innings for Toronto and closer Miguel Batista finished with a scoreless ninth inning.

    Vernon Wells had an RBI double in the third off David Weathers, while Gabe Gross hit an RBI single off Kelly in the sixth.
