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.

Only two Reds starters have lasted seven innings this season, putting a strain on the major leagues' worst bullpen.
