Brewers OF Braun leaves with rib cage tightness

CHICAGO (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has left their game against the Chicago Cubs with tightness on the right side of his rib cage.

Braun was removed for a pinch hitter in the fifth inning Wednesday at Wrigley Field. He went 0 for 2 a day after he homered twice in Milwaukee’s 7-0 victory.

Hernan Perez batted for Braun and bounced into an inning-ending double play. Perez then stayed in the game in right field, and Christian Yelich moved from right to left to replace Braun.
