--LHP Travis Wood had a no-hitter through the 5 1/3 inning Friday night at Cleveland. Indians LF Austin Kearns broke it up with a single to center. Two more hits followed, and Wood was done after a walk and a hit batter. He wound up charged with four runs in 5 1/3 innings. "That sixth inning was unbelievable," he said. "That can't happen. I've got to find a way to bear down and get some outs. You have to get out of that."
--LHP Aroldis Chapman threw off the mound for the first time since going on the disabled list Monday due to left shoulder inflammation. "We've tried to really get the delivery back together," pitching coach Bryan Price said. "At times, that's what is a little taxing to his arm. It's not really significant -- it shouldn't say not significant -- but it's not wholesale changes. We're just making sure the timing is right. When you're putting that type stress on the arm, he gets a little ahead of himself. You want to make sure the timing is right. It will help command and most importantly will keep him healthy."
--2B Brandon Phillips went 1-for-4, extended his hitting streak to 11 games. He's hitting .395 with four doubles, a triple and eight RBI during the streak.
--1B Joey Votto has reached base in 10 consecutive games since his season-opening, 33-game on-base streak ended. Votto, however, has not homered since April 29.
--SS Paul Janish went 0-for-2 with a walk, extending his slum to 1-for-22. His average is down to .238.
BY THE NUMBERS
91-112 -- The Reds' all-time record in interleague play, which began in 1997.
