LeCure battling tight right forearm
PHILADELPHIA -- As Reds teammate Carlos Fisher pitched inning after inning during Wednesday's 19-inning game against the Phillies, reliever Sam LeCure could only watch from the bullpen.

It wasn't publicly known before the game, but LeCure, who pitched 3 1/3 innings on Sunday, was not available to pitch because of a tight right forearm.

"They told me before the game they would try to stay away from me," LeCure said. "I knew that, but I tried to get loose later. I don't know if it was a combination that I was still sore or that I was sitting out there for 4 1/2 hours. I felt terrible because Carlos went out there and threw almost 100 pitches. I felt more bad he had to lose the game than anything. I could have gone out there. I wouldn't have looked like my normal self. I wish I could have done something."
