Max Muncy leaves Dodgers game with left arm injury after collision
The Los Angeles Dodgers suffered a serious injury issue on Sunday during the final day of the regular season.
Max Muncy was playing first base against the Milwaukee Brewers. Jace Peterson was batting in the top of the third and hit a swinging bunt back to Walker Buehler. Buehler fielded it and threw to Muncy at first, but the throw was in the baseline, causing Muncy to reach where Peterson was running.
Peterson ran into Muncy’s left arm, causing the first baseman immediate pain.
