Ender Inciarte exits Braves game early

Braves outfielder Ender Inciarte left in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Cardinals with lower back tightness.

“I don’t know if he did it on the slide when we bunted him over, but he was kind of uncomfortable when he came out,” manager Brian Snitker said following the game. “So they’re checking him out now.”

Ronald Acuna moved over to center and Johan Camargo entered the game to handle left in Inciarte’s absence.

Inciarte, 28, is hitting .217 with nine RBIs on the season. The Braves lost to the Cardinals, 14-3.
