WASHINGTON (AP) -Atlanta Braves left-hander Tom Glavine left his start against the Washington Nationals with an apparent injury after failing to record an out in the first inning Sunday.
The first four batters Glavine faced reached base, on three hits and a walk, as Washington took a 1-0 lead. After throwing his 16th pitch, to get to a 1-2 count on Wily Mo Pena, Glavine walked off the mound, then briefly doubled over.
Manager Bobby Cox and an Atlanta trainer checked on the pitcher, and a few moments later Glavine walked off the field.
The Braves did not immediately announce what was wrong with the 42-year-old Glavine, who has 303 career wins.
Right-hander Jeff Bennett came on in relief and got Pena to ground into a 6-4-3 double play that scored a run to put Washington ahead 2-0. The next batter, Paul Lo Duca, flied out to end the inning.
