Gorzelanny hit on wrist, leaves game

Milwaukee starter Tom Gorzelanny left Friday night’s game

against the Washington Nationals in the second inning with what the

Brewers called a left elbow contusion.

Jayson Werth led off the second with a sharp liner right back at

Gorzelanny as the left-hander completed his follow-through. The

ball appeared to strike Gorzelanny on the wrist and then rolled

toward the third-base line. In obvious pain, he raced after the

ball holding his left arm, but made no effort to pick it up.

Gorzelanny was examined by the team’s training staff, removed

from the game and replaced by Alfredo Figaro.

X-rays were negative and it’s unknown if Gorzelanny will miss

any time.
