Reds’ Broxton leaves game in 8th inning
Reds reliever Jonathan Broxton left the game against Arizona on
Wednesday in the eighth inning after possibly aggravating a right
Broxton missed almost two months earlier this season with a
right elbow injury.
Broxton made four appearances after being activated from the
disabled list on Aug. 7.
Manager Dusty Baker said before Wednesday’s game that the
right-hander wasn’t available for the previous two games because he
Broxton started the eighth with the Reds leading 8-5 and allowed
a leadoff home run to Gerardo Parra that originally was ruled a
double after bouncing off the top of the left field wall and back
onto the field. The hit was ruled a homer after a 3:02 replay
review by the umpires.
Broxton left the field escorted by a Reds trainer after walking
Wil Nieves. Closer Aroldis Chapman took over.
