Roy Oswalt leaves game with back injury

BY foxsports • April 15, 2011

Phillies right-hander Roy Oswalt left his start against Florida with a lower back strain after six innings Friday night.

Oswalt got hurt while running to first after putting down a bunt in the bottom of the sixth. He stayed in and ran the bases, but came out after trying his warmup pitches.

Oswalt, a three-time All-Star, has been durable throughout his career. He's made at least 30 starts eight straight seasons, though he's been on the disabled list six times.
