 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Oakland Athletics left fielder Travis Buck left Sunday's game against the San Francisco Giants with a bruised right thumb in the fifth inning.
Buck hurt himself making a diving catch on a fly ball by Barry Bonds in the fourth inning. Buck initially backed up on the fly, but the ball was hit off the end of the bat and died quickly. Buck recovered to make a sliding catch, rolling over before showing the umpire the ball.
He stayed in the game for the rest of the inning before being lifted for pinch hitter Jack Cust in the fifth. Cust remained in the game in left field.
The injury is just the latest for an A's outfielder. Milton Bradley went on the disabled list for the third time this season Friday with an injured calf. Mark Kotsay, Bobby Kielty and Chris Snelling have also had stints on the DL.
