Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie left Wednesday's game against the Brewers at Miller Park with right knee soreness. Lawrie aggravated the knee when sliding into third base in the seventh inning. When his next at-bat came in the top of the eighth, Yunel Escobar pinch-hit in his place. On the slide, Lawrie said the knee "tensed up." Usually a right-footed slider, he had been leading with his left foot instead recently because of an abrasion on the back of his left leg.
