Reds pitcher Homer Bailey leaves game against Cubs with pain in knee

Share/Save/Bookmark

CINCINNATI — Cincinnati Reds right-hander Homer Bailey left his start against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday in the sixth inning with pain in the patellar tendon of his right knee.

Bailey was delivering a 1-2 pitch to Starlin Castro, but he didn't throw the ball while gingerly completing his motion. After a visit from trainer Paul Lessard and manager Bryan Price, during which Bailey pointed to a spot on the mound, he walked off the field and was replaced by the right-hander Sam LeCure.

The Reds were leading 4-3. Bailey, who entered with an 8-5 record, allowed three hits and two runs with two walks and three strikeouts. He also hit two batters while throwing 71 pitches.

The Reds had center fielder Billy Hamilton and second baseman Brandon Phillips leave Wednesday's victory over Chicago with injuries. They are day-to-day.
