B.J. Upton joins list of Braves' injured OFs

ATLANTA (AP) - B.J. Upton has left the Braves' game against the Reds with a strained adductor muscle in his right leg, marking the second straight night Atlanta has lost an outfielder.

Upton was injured when he charged Todd Frazier's run-scoring triple in the first inning on Friday. Upton missed the ball as his right knee dug into the grass in center field. The ball skipped off his glove and hit his left knee.

Upton appeared to favor his right side as he walked slowly off the field, accompanied by assistant trainer Jim Lovell. Rookie Joey Terdoslavich entered the game, joining Justin Upton and Reed Johnson in the patchwork outfield.

There was no immediate report on the severity of the injury.
