As one of our staff writers just tweeted out, May has been a cursed month for the Milwaukee Brewers. The Crew just can’t escape the injury bug.
Ryan Braun has left tonight’s game in the 5th inning with tightness in his right side.

Braun has been dealing with a right oblique injury that forced him to go on the 15-day disabled list earlier this month. According to reports, it sounds like he tweaked it again.
It’s been a frustrating season for Braun as he has also experienced thumb numbness throughout the season. Braun is batting .289/.328/.529 in 31 games.
