The injuries continue for the Atlanta Braves as Ozzie Albies exited Friday’s game in Chicago after he was hit by a pitch in the ninth inning. Albies was hit in the knee by the Cubs’ Justin Steele on a 2-2 pitch. He was attended to by the Braves’ training staff and tried to walk it off before exiting. He was replaced by Pablo Sandoval who was then erased on a double play to end the inning.
The Braves lost Ender Inciarte earlier in the game when he suffered a strained hamstring while running the bases in the fourth inning. Hopefully Albies’ injury isn’t serious as the team can ill-afford to lose him.
