Brewers starter Ashby exits with forearm tightness vs. Mets


NEW YORK (AP) — Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Aaron Ashby exited his start against the New York Mets with left forearm tightness. The team said he was removed as a precaution. 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, is 1-5 with a 4.25 ERA in eight starts and six relief appearances this season, his second in the majors.
