Cozart back in Reds' lineup, bats ninth

NEW YORK -- Reds rookie shortstop Zack Cozart was back in the lineup Sunday after not starting on Saturday. Cozart batted ninth in the order, down from his usual first or second spot.

Cozart entered the day in a 1-for-26 slump, which dropped his average from .270 to .230. Reds manager Dusty Baker said he wasn't trying to relieve some pressure off of Cozart.

"It's the American League double leadoff lineup," Baker said.
