Marlins CF Maybin injured trying to make catch
Florida Marlins center fielder Cameron Maybin was injured when
he ran into the wall trying to catch a triple by Atlanta’s Brooks
Conrad in the seventh inning of the Braves’ 3-2 win Tuesday
He hurt his lower back, Florida manager Edwin Rodriguez said
after the game. Maybin left the field on a golf cart.
”I thought it was his leg but it turns out it was his lower
back,” Rodriguez said. ”We’ll see how it is in 2-3 days. I
thought it was more serious.”
Maybin, who left the clubhouse on crutches, said he also hurt
both legs in addition to his back.
The ball glanced off Maybin’s glove just before he hit the
padded outfield wall in right center field. The triple scored Melky
Cabrera to tie the score at 1.
