McCann misses third straight game with flu
CINCINNATI -- The flu bug has hit the Braves hard, as catcher Brian McCann sat out a third straight game on Thursday.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said McCann's condition is worse than it had been the previous two days and that reserve Matt Diaz is also feeling the effects.

McCann went 0-for-3 in Monday's opener against the Reds, but has been replaced by David Ross in the lineup since.

"I think it's a full-blown flu going now with his temperature and aching feelings," Gonzalez said. "The last three days he's been curled up on a sofa or the training room. There's nothing you can do but let that thing take its course."
