Cincinnati Reds' Tony Cingrani left Tuesday's game against the Arizona Diamondback in the fourth inning with a lower back strain. Reds manager Dusty Baker mentioned it had been nagging him before the start.
"I felt it before," said Cingrani. "It came on gradually. It hasn't been this bad, and it got pretty bad."
Cingrani had retired the first ten batters before giving up a solo home run to Martin Prado. He then walked Paul Goldschmidt but eventually picked him off. Aaron Hill then doubled off Cingrani before Bryan Price headed out to the mound with the Reds trainer and ended his outing.
Cincinnati went on to lose the game 5-2.
Entering Tuesday, Cingrani had gone 6-2 with a 2.60 ERA in 15 starts this season. He replaced Johnny Cueto after Cueto headed to the disabled list. He also made appearances out of the bullpen.
