Phillies center fielder Brandon Marsh leaves game vs. Reds with knee injury

CINCINNATI (CBS) -- Philadelphia Phillies center fielder Brandon Marsh left Tuesday night's game against the Cincinnati Reds with an apparent knee injury after attempting to make a play on a Jonathan India home run.

Marsh collided hard into the right-center field wall at Great American Ball Park attempting to rob the home run in the third inning.

Marsh left the game, walking off the field with the Phillies' athletic trainer.

Phillies interim manager Rob Thomson told reporters the team is awaiting the results of an MRI, but team doctors preliminarily believe it's a bone bruise. There's no word on his availability going forward at this time.

Matt Vierling moved from left field to center field while infielder Nick Maton entered the game to play left field.

It was Maton's first appearance in the outfield in the majors. Maton has played two games in center field in his professional career -- in 2021 in Triple A.

Kyle Schwarber was out of the lineup for the fifth straight game Tuesday because of a strained right calf. The Phillies hope to get Schwarber back on Friday.

The Phillies ended up beating the Reds, 11-4, to earn their 10,000th win in franchise history.
