• As Bronson Arroyo and the rest of the Reds' starters took batting practice before Thursday's game, Mat Latos stood off to the right of the cage surrounding home plate. Although he appeared out of harm's way, a foul ball off Arroyo's bat snuck under the cage and hit him on the inside of his right leg. He tried to walk it off before revealing a large red mark on the leg and heading back into the clubhouse. Fortunately for the Reds, he appeared to be OK when he returned to the field while the rest of the team took BP.
