GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Ryan Ludwick and Miguel Olivo hit three-run homers Wednesday night and the Cincinnati Reds piled up 18 hits for a 12-2 victory over Canada's team in the World Baseball Classic.

The Canadians managed only four hits in a tuneup for their opening WBC game on Saturday. Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who is on Canada's team, didn't play.

Mark Hardy, who pitched for Double-A San Antonio last season, struggled through 1 2-3 innings. He allowed six runs on seven hits. Trystan Magnuson, who was Toronto's first pick in the June 2007 draft, gave up Ludwick's homer.

Mat Latos pitched three innings for Cincinnati, allowing two runs on a homer by Adam Loewen.
