AP - Sports

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Umpire Brad Myers was struck by a line drive and left Cincinnati's spring game against Cleveland.

Myers, a base umpire on a rotating three-man crew, was hit hard behind the pitcher's mound in the second inning on Monday. The ball hit by Cincinnati's Brandon Phillips struck the umpire in the groin area. He was down for several minutes before he left on a cart driven by Reds trainer Tomas Vera. Myers was in a sitting position on the cart.

The game was designated as a replay game with four umpires rotating between the field and a truck housing the replay equipment outside the ballpark.

Umpire John Tompane replaced Myers on the bases.
