Cameron hurts knee, Braun seems OK

The Brewers lost the lead and their starting center fielder in the sixth inning of Monday’s 7-4 loss to the Marlins, when Mike Cameron exited with a flare-up of tendinitis in his left knee.

Left fielder Ryan Braun exited later in the same inning, but manager Ken Macha insisted that move was a simple double-switch. Braun, the manager said, was “fine.”

Cameron, though, will be re-examined on Tuesday before the Brewers continue their four-game series at Land Shark Stadium. The 36-year-old missed a handful of games last season with a similar injury.

“It sparked up more than normal in the outfield,” Cameron said. “It ‘pressurized’ more than normal. It’s something I can deal with. I just irritated it pretty good.”
