Ludwick 'taking it easy' as he gets back into swing
ST. LOUIS -- Through his first two games since returning to the lineup from left groin tightness, Reds left fielder Ryan Ludwick was 1-for-7 with a double and a run scored. Ludwick also had pinch-hit doubles on both Saturday and Sunday at Pittsburgh after he missed eight games with the injury.

"I feel great. I've been taking it easy when I need to take it easy," Ludwick said. "That was kind of my goal. I think the main thing for me was to come back and see some pitches. I think everyone was more worried about my timing at the plate more than anything.

"I feel like since I've come back, I haven't missed a beat at the plate. I'm seeing the ball well. I'm not punching out, which is usually a good sign for me. If I'm striking out a lot, it means I'm not feeling it. I've put some good swings on some balls."
