Braun hurts wrist, Hart sprains ankle on Sunday
ST. LOUIS -- The Brewers lost first baseman Corey Hart and left fielder Ryan Braun to injuries within the span of two innings in Sunday's extra-inning loss to the Cardinals. Braun tweaked a right wrist that has bothered him for a while, and Hart hurt his left ankle.

Hart, batting .351 over his last 25 games, had two hits and scored two runs before leaving the game. He was hurt in the top of the fourth inning when he rounded second base after a Jonathan Lucroy single, then planted and returned to the bag.

"I didn't turn it; my foot just felt like something inside had a real bad burning," Hart said. "I saw a doctor and of course they don't know anything yet. I'll see our guys when we get to [Miller Park] tomorrow. Hopefully I get there tomorrow and feel better."

He appeared to limp home in the fourth inning on Jean Segura's RBI single, and also moved gingerly in the field after playing the bottom of that frame. Hart was replaced at first base in the fifth inning by Travis Ishikawa.

Braun was 0-for-3 before abruptly exiting in the sixth with his sore wrist.

"I've dealt with it for a while, off and on, and occasionally I take an awkward swing and irritate it," Braun said. "I'll be all right though." Braun is the National League leader with 38 home runs, and on Friday became the first player in Brewers history to reach 100 RBIs in five different seasons.
