Pirates 2B Walker dislocates finger vs Dodgers
Walker writhed on the ground in pain after he fielded a Matt Kemp ground ball, ran to force out Mark Ellis at second and throw on to first. Walker appeared to land awkwardly on his right forearm after tumbling over Ellis' slide.
Walker is hitting .290 and leads NL second basemen in RBIs (67) and is tied for the lead in home runs (14). He is hitting .348 with 10 home runs and 37 RBIs over his past 43 games.
The Pirates, who have lost five of their past six, entered the day holding the NL's second wild card spot.
