Braun sits out with sore Achilles
SAN FRANCISCO -- Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun had improved in the two days since exiting a game in San Diego with a tight right Achilles, but not enough to make it into the starting lineup Friday night against the Giants.

Braun did not take part in batting practice on the field but did some work in the batting cages, manager Ron Roenicke said. Braun was also expected to try some limited running drills to see if he could pinch-hit.

"It's still just tight in the Achilles, and we'll try to give it another day," Roenicke said.

Roenicke could not say whether Braun would be available to start Saturday's afternoon game.
