Buchanan lifted early; Rupp leaves with injury

Buchanan lifted early, Rupp leaves with injury

There were a couple of notable moves in the first inning of the IronPigs 3-2 win over Rochester on Sunday.

David Buchanan was lifted from the game after just one scoreless inning on the mound.

The move would seem to suggest that Buchanan could be called up to the Phillies to start in A.J. Burnett's spot on Wednesday.

Burnett left Friday's game with a groin injury.

Catcher Cameron Rupp also left the game after the first inning due to an apparent back injury.

Rupp seemed to tweak the back after hitting an RBI double in the first.

Rupp leads the IronPigs in both home runs and RBIs.
