PITTSBURGH (AP) -Houston's Hunter Pence sprained his right wrist while batting in the fourth inning Sunday against Pittsburgh and came out of the game.
X-rays did not reveal any fractures, but Pence's return to the lineup is uncertain.
Pence clutched his wrist in pain while running down the line after popping up against Shane Youman. Pence is hitting .330 with 12 homers and 45 RBIs, with at least one hit in 40 of his last 50 games.
Pence was the first rookie in either league since 1957 to lead his league in batting at the All-Star break. He has since dropped out of the NL batting lead, but still ranks in the top 10.
