ATLANTA (AP) - B.J. Upton has left the Braves' game against the Reds with an apparent knee injury, marking the second straight night Atlanta has lost an outfielder.
Upton was injured when he charged Todd Frazier's run-scoring triple in the first inning Friday night. Upton missed the ball as his right knee dug into the grass in center field. The ball skipped off his glove and hit his left knee.
Upton appeared to favor his right knee as he walked slowly off the field. Rookie Joey Terdoslavich entered the game, joining Justin Upton and Reed Johnson in the patchwork outfield.
Justin Heyward was held out of Friday's lineup after straining his right hamstring on Thursday night. Jordan Schafer is already on the disabled list.
