 WASHINGTON (AP) -Ryan Howard sat out the Philadelphia Phillies' 4-2 victory over the Washington Nationals on Thursday because of a left leg injury that's expected to sideline him at least one more game.
The reigning NL MVP hurt himself running out a fielder's choice grounder in the 10th inning Wednesday night, but stayed in for the rest of Philadelphia's 5-4 loss in 13 innings. Howard went 0-for-5 Wednesday to drop his average to .213 for the season.
The Phillies listed him as day-to-day, saying he sprained the ligament that connects the tibia to the fibia just below the knee.
General manager Pat Gillick said X-rays done Wednesday showed nothing was torn and that Howard wouldn't need to have an MRI exam. Gillick also said he didn't think Howard would have to go on the disabled list.
``Just guessing, I'd say he's going to miss tomorrow's game for sure. Hopefully he'll be back in a couple days,'' manager Charlie Manuel said. ``I don't want him to get hurt any more seriously.''
Greg Dobbs started at first base and went 0-for-4 Thursday. Pat Burrell moved up in the batting order from fifth to Howard's cleanup spot and went 0-for-1 with three walks.
