Cameron Maybin hurt crashing into wall
ATLANTA -- Florida Marlins center fielder Cameron Maybin was injured when he ran into the wall trying to catch a triple by Atlanta's Brooks Conrad in the seventh inning of the Braves' 3-2 win Tuesday night.
He hurt his lower back, Florida manager Edwin Rodriguez said after the game. Maybin left the field on a golf cart.
"I thought it was his leg but it turns out it was his lower back," Rodriguez said. "We'll see how it is in 2-3 days. I thought it was more serious."
Maybin, who left the clubhouse on crutches, said he also hurt both legs in addition to his back.
The ball glanced off Maybin's glove just before he hit the padded outfield wall in right center field. The triple scored Melky Cabrera to tie the score at 1.
