MILWAUKEE -- After aggravating his lingering Achilles' injury and straining his right hip Friday night in a loss to the Pirates, Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun is out of the lineup for Milwaukee's second game with Pittsburgh on Saturday.Braun left Friday's game in the top of the eighth inning after legging out a single at first base and stealing second. He attempted to stay in the game after the steal but then limped off the field. After the game, Braun said he made a "weird, awkward slide" to avoid tweaking his nagging Achilles', but he aggravated the injury anyway. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Braun would be re-evaluated before Saturday's game but so far he is considered day-to-day.Braun the reigning National League MVP who is hitting .310 with 14 home runs and 36 RBI -- said he refuses to sit out a few games to completely return to health and instead will continue to play hurt. Entering Saturday's contest, he had missed three of Milwaukee's 52 games."I think the danger in trying to play through an injury constantly is it's easy to reinjure it," Braun said. "Your body also compensates, so it's easy to hurt something else. I don't think it's too bad, but it doesn't feel good right now." Norichika Aoki is replacing Braun in the lineup against the Pirates on Saturday.Follow Ryan Kartje on Twitter.

MILWAUKEE For 18 consecutive games, Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has put together a starting lineup that was different than the game before. But on Sunday morning, picking that starting lineup took longer than it has all season.
"It took some discussion," Roenicke said.
That's because for the first time this season the Brewers will be without both Ryan Braun and...
Ryan Braun is back in the lineup for the Milwaukee Brewers, but lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon is still an issue.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says Braun's status changes daily, ''so it's hard knowing where we are with it.''
Roenicke says the problem won't keep him out of the lineup for an extended period of time but can limit his ability...
So much for all that momentum the Milwaukee Brewers brought back from their recent road trip.
The Pittsburgh Pirates scored six runs off Randy Wolf in the third inning, then went on to pound the Brewers 8-2 on Friday night. And Ryan Braun left the game after the seventh inning with another injury worry, aggravating the lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon and straining...
MILWAUKEE Cody Ransom doesn't remember much from the experience, but the shortstop's career with the Milwaukee Brewers actually started much, much earlier than that of any active player on Milwaukee's roster.
As a grade school kid growing up in Chandler, Ariz., Ransom lived only a few miles from the Brewers' spring training facility. And since Ransom's family...
MILWAUKEE Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke has said it. Right fielder Corey Hart and other Brewers players have, too. With the turnover the club had in the offseason, the clubhouse hasn't quite been the lively, boisterous place it was in 2011.
But on Friday, part of that 2011 equation returned to Miller Park. The problem was it was wearing the other team's uniform...
The Milwaukee Brewers return to Miller Park riding their longest winning streak of the season.
Given the Brewers' history at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates, there's a good chance that run will continue.
Milwaukee goes for a fifth straight victory Friday night when these NL Central rivals begin their season series.
Back from a 5-2 trip, the Brewers (23-28) open a nine...
The Pittsburgh Pirates scored six runs off Randy Wolf in the third inning, then went on to pound the Milwaukee Brewers 8-2 on Friday night.
Ryan Braun left the game with a right hip strain, after sitting out Thursday night's game because of lingering tightness in his right Achilles tendon.
Kevin Correia (2-5) gave up two runs and five hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Pirates,...
The Brewers were more than willing to trade two top prospects for left-hander CC Sabathia in July 2008, and not simply because they were getting one of the best pitchers in the game.
No, the Brewers also knew that they could possibly replace the youngsters first baseman Matt LaPorta and outfielder Michael Brantley with the two high draft picks they would collect if Sabathia left...
Maybe the Pittsburgh Pirates' fortunes at Miller Park are taking a turn for the better. They are in position for a rare series victory in Milwaukee, with Ryan Braun's status in doubt.
The Pirates can capture a road set against the Brewers for the second time in the last six seasons Saturday night, and it's not clear if Braun will play.
Pittsburgh (26-25) won for the...
The Pirates were able to keep on rolling on Friday night, despite the dreaded visit to the place that has haunted them for years. The Bucs and Brewers did indeed look like very different teams from the ones we’re used to seeing when they match up, and for Pirate fans, that was a beautiful sight.
The game started out like a typical Milwaukee mess, though. Jose Tabata drew a leadoff...

Dun dun dun. Time for the Brewers and dreaded Miller Park, where the Pirates are an absurd 4-38 in their last 42 games. That is unfathomably awful. You know that, I know that, everybody that follows either of these teams knows that. It has to stop eventually, right...
I know the umpire was just trying to get into position, but in the GIF, it certainly looks like he’s purposely trying to check Brooks Conrad into oblivion. If the goal for the defense on a fly ball was to let the ball hit you directly in the face, Michael Saunders wins
