Jimmy Rollins said before the game that the X-Rays he was getting were precautionary. Well, Philadelphia apparently can breathe a big sigh of relief. The short stop's x-rays were negative, meaning he's dealing with a simple sprained ankle. Not great for a player who relies so much on his mobility, but much better than a fractured bone.
Rollins didn't say much after the game, but joked with reporters on his way out the door. He said before the game he hopes to play tomorrow night.
That's good news, because the Phils didn't look so hot tonight, particularly at Rollins' two responsibilities: playing short stop, and leading off.
Shane Victorino was 0-for-5 at the top of the order, while Eric Bruntlett committed two errors at short stop.
