MILWAUKEE The injury bug continued to bite the Milwaukee Brewers as shortstop Jean Segura left Sunday's game against Arizona with a left quad contusion. Segura was injured in the third inning on a hard takeout slide by Diamondbacks center fielder Gerardo Parra. First baseman Yuniesky Betancourt made a nice play on a ground ball off the bat of left fielder Martin Prado, but throw was high and wide, taking Segura off the bag. He was on the ground for some time but eventually got up, did sprints in the outfield and stayed in the game. Segura hit into an inning ending fielder's choice in the bottom of the inning and was pulled prior to the start of the fifth inning. The Brewers, already playing without left fielder Ryan Braun (neck strain) and third baseman Aramis Ramirez (left knee sprain), have been hit hard by injuries during the first week of the season. Without their Nos. 3 and 4 hitters -- No. 5 hitter first baseman Corey Hart is also still recovering from knee surgery -- the Brewers had to run a makeshift lineup out for the series finale against the Diamondbacks. Hitting .500 (9-for-18) entering Sunday's game, Segura was moved up to third in the lineup. The domino-like impact of his injury caused Martin Maldonado to move from catcher to first base, Yuniesky Betancourt to move from first base to third base, Alex Gonzalez to shift from third base to shortstop and Jonathan Lucroy came in at catcher.
