Braun misses sixth straight start Friday
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers manager Ron Roenicke had hoped Ryan Braun would be healthy enough to pinch-hit on Friday night. Instead, Braun needed another day to recover from a left leg injury.

Braun missed his sixth consecutive start on Friday against the Reds. Roenicke stressed that there was no setback, and that Braun was actually seeing continued improvement.

"It seems to be going longer than we thought," Roenicke said. "He's still shooting for hopefully playing a game Saturday or Sunday."
