Tuesday, August 9, 2011
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- St. Louis Cardinals reliever Lance Lynn pulled a left side muscle on a full-count walk with two outs in the eighth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers and was lifted from the game.
Lynn, a rookie right-hander, bent over in pain after walking pinch hitter George Kotaras on Tuesday night. Lynn struck out three and hadn't allowed a hit in 1 2-3 innings before the walk. He eventually walked off the field.
Octavio Dotel replaced Lynn in a double switch with Daniel Descalso replacing Skip Schumaker at second base.
