CINCINNATI (AP) -Reds center fielder Ryan Freel was taken off the field on a stretcher after colliding with a teammate and tests came back normal Monday during Cincinnati's 4-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.
Kyle Lohse (2-6) threw a six-hit shutout, which snapped the team's six-game skid as well as Lohse's personal six-game losing streak.
Freel left the game in the third inning after running into right fielder Norris Hopper while catching a fly ball on the warning track. Freel was spun around and landed near the base of the wall. The game was delayed 13 minutes while he was examined before he was strapped onto a stretcher and taken to a local hospital.
The Reds announced in the fourth inning that Freel, known for his all-out play, had feeling in all of his extremities and was coherent. He was diagnosed with a contusion to the head and neck, and will be re-evaluated Tuesday.
David Ross hit a two-run homer in the fifth and Edwin Encarnacion added two RBIs for Cincinnati.
Pittsburgh right-hander Ian Snell (4-4) allowed five hits and three runs with two walks and six strikeouts in seven innings.
