Hiroki Kuroda pitched seven solid innings in a Minor League game against the Reds, allowing two hits, one a solo homer. He struck out seven without a walk and made 91 pitches.
Catcher Russell Martin caught Kuroda and went 0-for-3, all strikeouts, but showed no effects of the pulled groin muscle. Martin is not on the list to travel to Tucson Tuesday. — Ken Gurnick
