SARASOTA, Fla. -- There's nothing wrong with being sharp in Spring Training. But can there be such a thing as being too locked in?

That's what Edinson Volquez feared after another strong Grapefruit League start on Monday afternoon. The right-hander tossed five shutout innings, allowing just four hits and two walks, striking out five in the Reds' 3-0 victory. Only three runners made it into scoring position in his entire outing, running his scoreless streak to 14 innings.

"I'm scared now," Volquez joked. "I don't want to leave all my zeroes down here."

In his 14 innings of work, Volquez has allowed 13 hits, walked five and struck out 11. He mowed down the Jays on Monday without lighting up the radar gun like he sometimes can, instead relying on a slightly different assortment of pitches.

"I threw all my fastballs two-seamers today," Volquez said. "I threw more fastblls the first three innings. After that, I threw my breaking ball.

"My curve was pretty good today. I was throwing my curve and changeup. The last out I got, it was a changeup."

Volquez struck out Aaron Hill with a runner on third in the fifth to end his outing.
