Brenton Doyle of the Rockies went off the field after hitting a wall while trying to rob a home run in the 9th inning.
Rocky Mountains of Colorado rookie Brenton Doyle was wheeled off the field during Thursday night’s game against the Miami Marlins after he suffered an injury when he hit a wall in center field, nearly depriving Jorge Solera of a home run.
Doyle, 25, likely suffered a bruised knee in the ninth inning when he touched the wall in an attempt to deprive Soler of a home run and save The Rockies lead 6-2.
“Links are fine. Not very nice, but it’s good news,” Doyle said after the game. “I’m not sure about staying in IL or not. But it will probably take a couple of days to feel better.”

Doyle had the ball in his glove when it fell out due to hitting the wall.
He fell to the ground and immediately staggered in pain. Doyle appeared to be clutching his right knee as teammates and coaches approached him.
He was eventually helped to his feet, but was carried away from the field.

“We’ll know more (Friday after imaging) how it goes, but we hope it’s just a bruise like the one he got in Albuquerque about three weeks ago,” manager Bud Black said via The Denver Post.
“When Soler hit him, I didn’t think he hit, but Doyle had a great bounce and at first I thought he caught him. When I saw him fall we all gasped and from now on you just cross your fingers.”
Doyle said that despite the injury, he plans to continue playing the same style.

“I’m a man of my word, so I’ll probably end up doing it again. I give 100% and want to track everything I can.”
The Rockies took a four-run lead and conceded Marlins space to tie in the ninth inning, but Ezequiel Tovar gave Colorado the win with a single.
