Brewers put hot-hitting catcher Lucroy on DL

LOS ANGELES (AP) -

The Milwaukee Brewers put catcher Jonathan Lucroy on the 15-day disabled list with a broken right hand after their 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night.

Lucroy had a major league-leading .514 batting average with runners in scoring position.

He said he hurt his hand while reaching under the bed in his hotel room on Sunday night for a lost sock as his wife moved a suitcase that fell on Lucroy's hand. He took some swings at Dodger Stadium before the game to test his hand and it became clear he couldn't play. X-rays revealed the break.

Lucroy's injury is the latest setback for the Brewers this month. He's their seventh player to go on the DL.
