Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Miami Marlins first baseman Carlos Lee left
Friday's game against the Cincinnati Reds in the bottom of the fifth inning
with a neck strain.
With runners on first and second and two outs in the fifth, Lee stroked a
single into right field to knock in a run.
While Lee was caught in a rundown between first and second, Marlins shortstop
Jose Reyes alertly took home.
Lee attempted to go to second on the throw to the plate, but was thrown out by
Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo. Arroyo's throw was high, forcing shortstop Wilson
Valdez to jump for the ball.
Valdez came down on top of Lee as he applied the tag and the Marlins' slugger
was unable to continue.
Gil Velazquez came on to play third, while Greg Dobbs moved over to first for
Lee, who entered the game hitting .261 with three home runs and 39 RBI over 63
games with the Marlins after being acquired from the Houston Astros on July 4.
