CINCINNATI -- The Reds lost yet another starter to injury when Tim Adleman left after throwing a pitch in the fourth inning of a game against the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.
Adleman reached for his left side after a pitch to Chris Gimenez. A trainer and manager Bryan Price went out to talk to him, and he left the field with what was diagnosed as a strained oblique.
The Indians had two runners aboard and led 2-0.
