Rollins' X-Rays Negative

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.

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.

Bruntlett seems like a good dude, and he took the post-game questioning from the media in stride. The guys a good defensive player - that's the reason they brought him here - so he didn't have much of an explanation, except that he'll do his best to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz also committed errors, raising the Phillies' league-leading total to 13.

More tomorrow. . .
