CINCINNATI (AP) A day after they learned they'll miss outfielder Jayson Werth indefinitely, the Washington Nationals lost starter Stephen Strasburg at least temporarily.

Strasburg left after only 16 pitches because of a stiff neck, and Zack Cozart had three hits as the Cincinnati Reds rallied against Washington's bullpen for a 5-2 victory on Friday night.

The Reds took advantage of Strasburg's quick exit to win for only the second time in 12 games.
