Ludwick exits as precaution with groin tightness

CHICAGO -- Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick was removed from Wednesday's game against the Cubs as a precaution because of left groin tightness while running the bases.

Ludwick, who was 1-for-2 with an RBI single in the third inning and a walk in the top of the fifth, was lifted for Chris Heisey to begin the bottom of the fifth inning, with the Reds leading, 5-1. He also made a nice sliding catch of Darwin Barney's fly ball in the fourth.

Ludwick is batting .276 with 26 home runs and 80 RBIs this season.
