David Wright was drilled near his back by Reds closer Francisco Cordero. But it was not remotely close to the lower-back stress fracture that sidelined him for two months, and was no significant cause for alarm, the third baseman maintained. After getting a postgame massage Monday, Wright even was helping lift a couch in the clubhouse to look for a lost part of Willie Harris' earring.

"I'm a little sore, but that's probably to be expected," Wright said. "It just got me in a weird spot. It didn't get me in the back. It got me more kind of like under the armpit, like the lat.

"I'm not worried about that," Wright continued, referring to the stress fracture. "I'm just worried about motion with my left arm. We'll be able to probably judge it a little better tomorrow."
