Padres' Fernando Tatis Jr. hit by pitch, exits win vs. Brewers

San Diego Padres star right fielder Fernando Tatis Jr. was removed from Friday night's game against the Milwaukee Brewers two innings after he was hit by a pitch on the left elbow.

The team later said Tatis suffered a left triceps contusion.

Tatis was hit by former San Diego pitcher Colin Rea with two outs in the third. He went down on one knee in pain and was checked by an athletic trainer.

For the next two innings, Tatis ran the bases and took his position in right field. When his turn in the batting order came up in the fifth, he was replaced by pinch hitter Tyler Wade.

"It's going to be fairly sore," Padres manager Mike Shildt said. "We'll check in on him tomorrow and kind of go from there."

Tatis hit a 446-foot home run in Thursday night's 7-6 win in the series opener. It was his team-high 14th.

Left fielder Jurickson Profar also left after hitting a double in the seventh. He has been dealing with patellar tendinitis in his left knee for several weeks.

"Some days are better than others," Shildt said. "He was in that moment where I appreciate it, he was like, 'Man, it doesn't feel great.' Again, more grit, more heart."

The Padres beat the National League Central-leading Brewers 9-5 for their third straight win.
