Dustin May leaves Dodgers game with injury – Daily Bulletin

Dodgers right-hander Dustin May left his start against the Milwaukee Brewers in the second inning with an injury.

The 23-year-old May retired the first five Brewers he faced, striking out three in the follow-up start after he struck out a career-high 10 in six innings against the San Diego Padres last Sunday.

But May gave up a solo home run to Luis Urias that tied the game 1-1 then went to a 2-and-2 count to the next hitter, Brewers outfielder Billy McKinney.

On his 27th pitch of the game, May threw a fastball that missed the plate wide by a considerable margin. He immediately winced in pain and signaled to the Dodgers’ dugout.

May averaged 98.4 mph on his four-seam fastball in his first four starts this season and had averaged 99.1 mph on his first five four-seamers in Saturday’s start. His final pitch to McKinney was just 94.3 mph, his lowest velocity on a four-seam fastball this season.

May had gone 1-1 with a 2.53 ERA and 0.94 WHIP in his first four starts this season. He struck out four of the first five batters he faced Saturday, giving him 35 in 23 innings.
