Phillies’ Rollins leaves game

Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins left Saturday’s game against

the Pittsburgh Pirates during the third inning with a bruised right


Rollins fouled a ball off his knee during the first at-bat of

the game. He stayed in the game and doubled before scoring. But the

2007 National League MVP was noticeably limping throughout the

following two innings and Wilson Valdez eventually replaced him in

the lineup.

Saturday’s game came a day after the Phillies finally had their

entire everyday lineup healthy and available for the first time

this season.
