Weeks out with sore wrist
Rickie Weeks struck out leading-off Sunday’s game in St. Louis and then exited with soreness in his left wrist before the Brewers took the field in the bottom of the first inning.
The Brewers batted around in the frame for a quick, 4-0 lead, and Craig Counsell moved from third base to second to replace Weeks. Bill Hall entered the game as the third baseman.
Weeks has a history of hand and wrist issues, but it was his right wrist, not his left, that needed surgery in 2006. The year before, Weeks had surgery on his left thumb to repair a torn ligament.
