ATLANTA (AP) -Pittsburgh Pirates shortstop Jack Wilson's status was uncertain after suffering a leg injury while running out a single against the Atlanta Braves on Thursday night.
Wilson hurt his left leg in the seventh inning while running to first base after hitting a game-tying single to left field. Wilson pulled up about halfway down the first-base line and hopped the rest of the way on his right leg.
Wilson had difficulty putting weight on the leg and needed help walking off the field.
Wilson's fielding error in the sixth inning helped the Braves rally from a 2-0 deficit to lead 3-2, but he drove in Chris Gomez with the single to the left-field corner.
Wilson likely would have had a double if not for the injury.
