Reds OF Byrd fractures right wrist

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Cincinnati outfielder Marlon Byrd fractured his right wrist when he was hit by a pitch in the Reds' 5-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.

Byrd was hit on the right hand by Sean O'Sullivan leading off the sixth inning. Byrd reacted with considerable pain but shook off the injury and went to first base. He was replaced in left field in the bottom of the seventh by Brennan Boesch.

''It's a wrist fracture but right now we don't know to what degree,'' Reds manager Bryan Price said.
