Bradley strains right groin in fourth
MILWAUKEE -- Chicago Cubs right fielder Milton Bradley left Sunday's game against Milwaukee with a right groin strain after he came up limping while trying to run from second to third base in the fourth inning.
Reed Johnson pinch ran for Bradley, and scored when Brewers starter Jeff Suppan walked Koyie Hill with the bases loaded. Johnson remained in the game to replace Bradley in right field.
Bradley signed a $30 million, three-year contract with Chicago as a free agent in the offseason, but has a history of injuries.
Bradley was off to a slow start for his new team. He came into Sunday's game batting .063, but reached on a fielder's choice and a hit batsman before leaving with the injury.
