CINCINNATI (AP) — Left-hander Cole Hamels left after only one inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night, the latest blow to a Chicago Cubs rotation already missing Kyle Hendricks.

Hamels struggled with his control, throwing 22 pitches. He gave up two singles, a walk and a run in the inning. There was no immediate word about his condition.

It was a huge break for the last-place Reds. Hamels was 11-1 in 17 career starts against Cincinnati.

Hamels went seven innings in each of his previous five starts. He had a 1.00 ERA over that span, allowing four earned runs.

Hendricks is on the injured list with a sore right shoulder. He’s expected to throw over the weekend and could return next week.
