Braun reaches on HBP after call overturned

MILWAUKEE -- Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun had to wait out a review before taking first base on his sixth hit by pitch this season during Friday night's game against the Cubs.

Plate umpire Ben May initially ruled the Justin Grimm pitch to Braun a foul ball, but replays showed it actually hit Braun on the right forearm. After the Brewers challenged, the call was overturned.

It loaded the bases for Jonathan Lucroy, who grounded out to end the inning with the Brewers trailing, 5-3.
