Hamilton hit a grounder to Stephen Drew in the first inning, reaching safely on the shortstop's fielding error. He winced after he crossed the base but stayed in the game.
When it came time to bat again, he headed for the trainer's room instead. The Reds said he'd have a cast put on the wrist, and it will be examined again during the All-Star break.
Hamilton brought an eight-game hitting streak into the game. The former No. 1 draft pick, who has overcome alcohol and cocaine addiction, is among the top NL rookies with 14 homers and 30 RBIs despite being sidelined for two weeks by an inflamed digestive tract.
