Bautista, Lawrie Leave Game Against Reds

CINCINNATI (AP) — Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista and infielder Brett Lawrie both left Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds.

Lawrie left the game in the middle of the second inning after being hit on the right hand by a pitch. He was replaced by Steve Tolleson.

Tolleson moved to right field and Munenori Kawasaki from shortstop to second for the bottom of the third after Bautista left the game with an apparent leg injury in the top of the third. But not before delivering a sacrifice bunt that set up Colby Rasmus’ two-run single, giving the Blue Jays a 2-1 lead.

Jose Reyes, who left Saturday’s game after fouling a ball off the side of his left knee, pinch-ran for Bautista, who had reached on an error, and stayed in the game to play shortstop.
