CINCINNATI -- For the second time in three days, the Reds got good news from the X-ray machine.

Right-handed reliever Jonathan Broxton's X-ray was negative for a fracture on Monday night after he was struck on his pitching hand by a line drive off the bat of Cubs right fielder Nate Schierholtz. Broxton got two outs before Schierholtz hit a comebacker that he could not evade. After being examined by the trainer and manager Dusty Baker, Broxton was removed from the game and replaced by Logan Ondrusek -- who struck out Welington Castillo to end the inning.

On Sunday, two fingers on the right hand of shortstop Zack Cozart were hit trying to bunt. Cozart's X-rays were also negative.
