Cardinals slugger Allen Craig hit a game-tying RBI single in the top of the fourth inning of Wednesday night’s tilt against the Reds, but he got tangled up a few feet beyond the first base bag with umpire Laz Diaz and planted awkwardly on his left ankle.
Craig was on the ground for a while — allowing the Reds to tag him out — and the initial worry was that he might have done something bad to his right knee, which had to be surgically repaired prior to the 2012 season. But replay of the injury clearly shows a left ankle tweak and Craig eventually walked over to the visitor’s dugout at Great American Ball Park under his own power. Matt Adams came on to fill in at first base in the bottom of the fourth.
Craig is hitting .315/.373/.457 with 13 homers and 97 RBI in 134 games this year. He’s likely day-to-day.
UPDATE, 9:24 p.m. ET: Craig has been diagnosed with a left foot sprain. He’ll be reevaluated Thursday.
