Reds' Cingrani leaves game vs. Cubs

Cincinnati Reds' Tony Cingrani leaves start against Chicago Cubs

Reds LHP Tony Cingrani left his start against the Chicago Cubs two outs into the second inning with back spasms.

Cingrani (7-3) was in his second start since coming off the 15-day disabled list on Thursday. He'd been out since August 25 with a lower back strain.

He allowed a single and walk in a scoreless first inning, then a double and massive, 470-foot, two-run home run by Welington Castillo in the second. After getting Ryan Sweeney to fly out to left field for the second out, Cingrani called out a Reds trainer. The two spoke before both walked to the Reds dugout.

Right-hander Greg Reynolds replaced Cingrani with the Cubs leading, 2-0.
