Maybin leaves in sixth after wall collision

MILWAUKEE -- Padres center fielder Cameron Maybin left Sunday's 6-5 loss to the Brewers with a stiff neck and a headache in the sixth inning, after colliding with the wall at Miller Park.

Maybin jumped into the wall going after a shot off the bat of Brewers shortstop Edwin Maysonet, one batter after catcher Martin Maldonado gave Milwaukee a 4-2 lead with a three-run homer.

"I've always just been taught that you can't be scared of the wall," Maybin said. "It was just a situation where they had hit a big homer, and I was trying to make a play for [starting pitcher Anthony Bass]. So it's a spot, where as an outfielder, you can't be scared to run into it. But sometimes it will get the best of you."

Padres manager Bud Black said the training staff would take a look at Maybin on Monday in Seattle, where San Diego starts a three-game Interleague series on Tuesday. Maybin said he doesn't believe the injury to be serious, but that Monday is a perfect time for an off-day.

"I don't think it's a concussion or anything like that," he said. "But we got an off-day tomorrow to kind of let it settle down a little bit, and hopefully it will feel better come Tuesday."
