MILWAUKEE (AP) -Lefthander Chris Capuano was taken out of the Milwaukee Brewers' game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday after taking a sharp ground ball off his right calf.
In the second inning, Capuano was hit in the right calf by a ground ball off the bat of Aaron Miles, who was called out for sliding out of the basepath to end the inning.
Capuano came back out to warm up before the third inning and felt good enough to continue, retiring the first two batters he faced. Capuano allowed a single to So Taguchi, then got Chris Duncan to pop out to end the inning.
But Tony Gwynn Jr. pinch-hit for Capuano in the bottom half of the third and right-hander Carlos Villanueva took over for Capuano in the fourth.
The Brewers announced Capuano had a contusion on his right calf and is listed as day-to-day.
