Reds' Kearns fractures forearm

Postby WebHamster » Mon Apr 26, 2004 10:00 pm

Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) - Cincinnati Reds outfielder Austin Kearns broke a bone in his left forearm after being hit by a pitch on Monday against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Kearns was hit by a pitch from Pirates' starting pitcher Ryan Vogelsong in the second inning, fracturing a bone right above the wrist. He didn't leave the game until the Reds took the field in the bottom of the inning, being replaced by Ryan Freel in right field.

X-rays in Pittsburgh revealed the injury and Kearns will be headed back to Cincinnati on Tuesday to be evaluated further. The Reds travel to Milwaukee for a two-game set against the Brewers starting Tuesday.

Kearns is batting just .137 this season and is marred in a 2-for-23 slump. He has two homers, five RBI and seven runs scored.
