Reds lose LaMarre to hamstring injury

MILWAUKEE -- Reds center fielder Ryan LaMarre left Sunday's 8-4 loss to the Brewers in the sixth inning with a strained right hamstring.

Making just his fifth Major League start, LaMarre was injured while running out a groundout to shortstop.

"Hard to say, I would guess we would know more [Monday]," Reds manager Bryan Price said of how long LaMarre might be sidelined. "I don't know for sure. He'll know a bit more [Monday], but I don't anticipate him playing in the next few days."

LaMarre had an eventful afternoon, as he committed a crucial throwing error and threw a runner out at the plate in Milwaukee's five-run fifth inning.

LaMarre throws out Davis at home

With runners at first and second and nobody out, Nevin Ashley tapped a comebacker to Reds starter Anthony DeSclafani, who threw a potential double-play ball into center field. LaMarre's throw to third base sailed into the Reds' dugout, allowing two runs to score.

LaMarre redeemed himself by throwing Khris Davis out at the plate on a single to center by Logan Schafer.

The Reds have also been playing without starting center fielder Billy Hamilton, who is expected to rejoin the team Monday in St. Louis in a strictly pinch-running role. Hamilton has been limited by a right shoulder strain.
