CINCINNATI (AP) — Left-hander Tony Cingrani strained his lower back during the fourth inning of Cincinnati's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks on Tuesday night and left for treatment.
Cingrani retired the first 10 batters before Martin Prado homered. One out later, Aaron Hill doubled on Cingrani's 54th pitch, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. That's when a trainer and manager Dusty Baker went out to talk to Cingrani, who was replaced by Alfredo Simon.
Cingrani has made 16 starts this season, filling in while Johnny Cueto remains on the disabled list with soreness behind his pitching shoulder. The 24-year-old pitcher also has made five relief appearances.
