Brewers shortstop bolts from game for twins' birth

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Shortstop Orlando Arcia subbed out of the Milwaukee Brewers' game against the Chicago Cubs in the third inning of the series finale and made it to the hospital in the nick of time.

Arcia arrived at the hospital Sunday just in time to see the birth of his twin daughters. Brewers manager Craig Counsell explained after the game why Arcia bolted in the third. Counsell said it happened pretty fast, but Arcia made it in time to be with his fiancee, Elena, for the birth of the twins.

Counsell says Arcia will take some time away for paternity leave. Hernan Perez moved from third base to shortstop when Arcia left and Mike Moustakas checked into the game at third.
