SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (CBS/AP) — Aroldis Chapman rebounded from a first-inning jam in his fourth appearance and second start of spring training, helping the Cincinnati Reds beat the San Francisco Giants 7-6 on Saturday in a split squad game for both clubs.

The Reds continue to consider whether to make the left-hander the team’s fifth starter or keep him in the closer role. Chapman, who said after his outing that he prefers to be a closer, got out of a no-out, bases-loaded situation with just one run allowed.

After walking the first two hitters he faced and throwing a wild pitch, he settled down and finished his day with four innings pitched, two hits allowed, three walks and two strikeouts.

Madison Bumgarner, on track to start the second game of the regular season for the Giants, shut out the Reds after the first inning. He allowed a run on two hits with two strikeouts and walk in five innings.
