Reds starter Mat Latos left the game in mid-inning after appearing to make a bad step on a pitch, giving Cincinnati another pitching scare.
Latos left in the fifth inning against the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday after apparently hurting himself on a pitch. A trainer and manager Dusty Baker went to the mound to talk to him. Latos then walked off the field.
The Reds acquired Latos in a trade with San Diego in the offseason, giving themselves another dependable starter. The right-hander has pitched well during spring training. He gave up four hits and three runs - two earned - in 4 2-3 innings on Tuesday, leaving his earned run average at 2.41.
The setback comes three days after the Reds lost closer Ryan Madson to an elbow injury.
