                    === Reds' Cingrani exits early again ===
 
 Cincinnati,  OH (Sports  Network) - Cincinnati Reds starter Tony Cingrani left
 Tuesday's  start  against the  Cubs in  the second  inning after aggravating a
 lower back strain that recently caused him to hit the disabled list.
 
 Cingrani  left his Aug. 20 start against Arizona in the fourth inning with the
 back injury and returned last week after missing two starts.
 
 The  rookie left-hander  pitched into the sixth inning in his victory over the
 Cardinals  on  Sept. 5, but gave  up a long  home run to Welington Castillo on
 Tuesday  and  walked off the  mound in discomfort with  two outs in the second
 inning.
 
 Cingrani  has been terrific  in 22 games -- 17 starts -- coming into Tuesday's
 outing,  having pitched  to a 2.80 earned run average while limiting opponents
 to 1.08 walks/hits per inning pitched.
