Brewers starter Ashby exits with apparent injury vs Mets

NEW YORK (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Aaron Ashby exited his start against the New York Mets with an apparent injury.

Ashby gave up Mark Canha's two-run homer that tied the score at 4 in the fifth inning, then retired Brandon Nimmo on a grounder.

That's when manager Craig Counsell, pitching coach Chris Hook and an athletic trainer went to the mound.

Following a discussion, Ashby walked off the field with the trainer and was replaced by Hoby Milner.

Ashby, the nephew of former major league pitcher Andy Ashby, entered 1-5 with a 3.91 ERA in seven starts and six relief appearances this season, his second in the majors.
