Reds' Gennett leaves with groin tightness

Five days after returning from a right groin strain, Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett departed Wednesday's 3-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers with left groin tightness.

Gennett, who missed the first half of the year with a severe right groin injury sustained in spring training, flew out in the first inning and struck out in the third. He was in the field for the fourth before being replaced by Nick Senzel to start the fifth.

Gennett, 29, is 2-for-19 in five games this season since making his debut Friday.

He had 50 home runs and 189 RBIs from 2017-18 for the Reds, who acquired him off waivers from the Brewers in March 2017. Gennett had a breakout season in 2017 and was selected to his first All-Star Game in 2018.
