CHICAGO (AP) - Atlanta Braves starter Paul Maholm has been forced out in the fourth inning of his start against the Chicago White Sox because of sprained left wrist.
Maholm's final pitch on Saturday was a foul ball hit by Alejandro De Aza down the left field line. After the pitch, Maholm asked for another baseball, but was awkwardly holding his pitching hand.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez and the team trainer went to the mound, and Maholm was removed from the game with a 2-1 count on De Aza.
Atlanta was trailing 7-4 at the time, and another run was charged to Maholm after he left the game. He allowed eight runs and seven hits in three-plus innings.
