The Milwaukee Brewers began Friday night’s game without left fielder Ryan Braun and ended it without third baseman Aramis Ramirez.

Braun was scratched just before the game because of neck spasms, while Ramirez had to leave the game after injuring his left knee while sliding into second base.

"I've had a sore neck from sleeping, but not like this—not spasms to the point where I can't move my neck," Braun told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "It's uncomfortable."

While Braun appears to be more of a day-to-day concern, Ramirez could be headed for the disabled list after aggravating the same knee that sidelined him for part of spring training. He will have an MRI exam Saturday.
