Mike Leake labored through 4 1/3 innings Wednesday, getting knocked around for five runs on six hits and two walks in an NLDS Game 4 loss to the Giants.

Leake wasn't added to the roster until Wednesday morning, when the Reds chose him to take the spot of the injured Johnny Cueto (oblique). It's outings like these that show why he wasn't part of the roster in the first place. Cincy would surely like to avoid giving him the ball again during a potential NLCS berth, but they might not have a choice with Cueto ineligible to return before the World Series.
