Brewers’ Segura leaves game with apparent injury
MILWAUKEE (AP) Brewers shortstop Jean Segura has left Saturday night’s game against the Chicago Cubs after the top of the first inning with an apparent head injury.
A television replay showed Segura apparently getting hit accidentally on the right side of his head with a bat being swung by teammate Ryan Braun, who was facing the field and warming up on the dugout steps while Segura was starting to come up the steps behind him. Segura had to be helped to the clubhouse.
Segura was in the second spot in the order and played defense before Jeff Bianchi pinch hit for him in the bottom of the first. Bianchi stayed in the game at short.
Segura was hitting .239 with a homer and five RBIs.
