Cincinnati Reds center fielder Nick Senzel and right-handed reliever Pedro Strop both left the game on Friday night with injuries.
The Reds entered play on Friday having not scored in 23 consecutive innings. David Bell put out a lineup that featured Matt Davidson, Curt Casali and Christian Colon in the heart of the order.
