You can call Ryan Braun "Kirk Cameron", 'cause my man is going through groin pains. Right? Right? Am I right? Is this on?
Well, Braun was going through groin pains, as he left Monday night's extra-inning game against the San Francisco Giants after running out a ground ball. After running through first base, Braun grimaced and limped toward the dugout. It didn't look good.
Turns out that he missed only three innings:
Ryan Braun is in the Brewers lineup today. Came out late last night with groin tightness.— Alex Pavlovic (@AlexPavlovic) May 22, 2012
The 28-year-old is off to a fantastic start this season, hitting .333/.402/.647 -- even better than his numbers from his MVP season last year. He hit his 12th home run of the year on Monday night off Madison Bumgarner to tie the game in the eighth inning, and it landed ... now. The Giants are surely thrilled he's back in the lineup. You know the Brewers are.
