Ryan Braun leaves game with groin injury
Brewers slugger Ryan Braun was forced to exit Monday night's game against the Giants because of tightness in his right groin.
During spring training, Braun was limited by the same condition, and back in 2008 he was day-to-day with groin soreness at one point.
Earlier Monday night, Braun had hit a clutch, eighth-inning homer to tie the game at 3-3. He was 2-for-5 with two RBI at the time of his injury.
