Edmonds injured after checked swing

MILWAUKEE -- Center fielder Jim Edmonds has left the Milwaukee Brewers' game against the Philadelphia Phillies with a strained left oblique.

Edmonds hurt himself in the second inning Saturday when he checked his swing, fouling a ball off. He immediately clutched at his left side, but remained in the game until Jody Gerut replaced him in center to start the fourth.

Edmonds is hitting .280 with three homers and eight RBIs in 27 games. The team says he is day to day.
