Braun scratched due to groin problem

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun was supposed to play back-to-back days for the first time this spring, but instead was scratched from Tuesday's starting lineup with a tight groin.

Logan Schafer took Braun's place in left field against the Dodgers.

Braun is batting .059 this spring.
