Less than an hour before the scheduled start of the Reds-Mets game, Cincinnati scratched starter Aaron Harang because of low back pain.
Harang, 6-7 with a 5.02 ERA, was replaced by rookie Travis Wood, who will be making his second big-league start.
Wood pitched last Thursday in Chicago on an extra day's rest. Wood went seven-plus innings, allowed two hits and two runs, walking three and striking out four. Wood threw 91 pitches in his victory over the Cubs.
