Cincinnati Reds center fielder Billy Hamilton left the game against the Milwaukee Brewers after the top of the first inning due to sprains in his third and fourth knuckles.
The injury happened during an incredible diving catch that robbed Carlos Gomez of what would have probably been a double or triple of pitcher Homer Bailey.
“Unfortunately, it’s the same hand that he hurt in New York (during the opening week),” Reds manager Bryan Price said. “We’re optimistic that he’ll only miss a day or two, but we won’t know for a day or two.”.
