Graffanino Could Miss Chunk of Playing Time

GRAFFANINO, Wis. (AP) -- Brewers infielder Tony Graffanino could miss a good chunk of playing time with a sprained right knee.

The Brewers' second baseman came up limping after making a leaping stab of a line drive hit by Brad Hawpe that ended the first inning.

The 35-year-old Graffanino had surgery to repair a ligament in the same knee five years ago.

If he misses more than a couple days, the Brewers might recall Rickie Weeks from Triple-A Nashville.

But, then again, general manager Doug Melvin says the way the Brewers pitching is going lately, they might need five more pitchers.

The Brewers pitchers have given up 36 total runs in the series at Colorado.
