"When he ran for the ball down in the corner [on Kelly Shoppach's eighth-inning double], evidently his knee was bothering him," Manuel said. "That's what he said."
Brown, who had missed the two prior games with left knee soreness, said after the game that his knee "didn't feel that bad," and he hopes to play Wednesday. Although Brown never said his knee was hurting.
"I don't know if I was hobbling a little bit, and the trainers or Charlie saw it and wanted to take me out," Brown said. "I think I'm going to do that a little bit anyway with the other injury on the right leg with the brace and everything. I don't feel bad at all."
