Rockies lose Blackmon with broken foot
The short-handed Colorado Rockies have lost outfielder Charlie Blackmon with a fracture in his left foot.
Blackmon left the game Thursday against Atlanta after hurting his foot while running the bases.
Blackmon hit a single in the third inning before advancing to third on Jonathan Herrera's hit-and-run single to left. Blackmon pulled up after sliding feet-first into third base. He faltered slightly while crossing second base before his left foot hit the bag first on his slide into third.
Ty Wigginton replaced Blackmon as a pinch-runner and remained in the game in left field.
