It's been quite a long season for Cincinnati Reds outfielder Ryan Ludwick. After injuring his shoulder during the Opening Day loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Ludwick just recently returned to action for the Reds. He missed a total of 116 games.
In Saturday night's 2-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, Ludwick collected his first two hits of the 2013 season. He collected singles in both the fifth and seventh innings.
"It's been a lot tougher than I thought it would be," Ludwick said. "Mainly, it's been the speed of the game. Normally, I hit for 2½ months in the offseason and then have spring training and everybody's starting off even.
Last season Ludwick batted .275 with 26 home runs and 80 runs batted in as the Reds everyday left-fielder.
Getting him back in the lineup may have come at the most opportune time, especially with the Reds in the midst of a playoff push.
