MILWAUKEE (AP) - Ryan Braun left the Milwaukee Brewers’ game against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday because of tightness in his right trapezius, a large muscle that extends from the shoulder into the upper back.

Braun was removed after the sixth inning. He had grounded into a fielder’s choice in the inning and scored on Domingo Santana’s three-run homer.

He was 0 for 3 in the game, reaching on an error in the fourth inning and again on the fielder’s choice in the sixth. For the season, he is batting .287 with seven home runs and 18 RBIs.

Braun has missed time with lower back tightness this season and in 2016.
