Upton appeared to land awkwardly while stepping on first base in his attempt to beat out a ground ball to Reds shortstop Zack Cozart in the bottom of the seventh inning. Upton limped back to the dugout and was replaced in the top of the eighth by Tyler Pastornicky, whose appearance in the outfield was the first of his major league career. Pastornicky saw time in the outfield in just three of his 486 career minor league games.
The Braves have now lost all three of their starting outfielders due to injury in the past two games. Jason Heyward hurt his hamstring on Thursday, and B.J. Upton strained his adductor muscle while diving for a ball in the first inning on Friday.
