WASHINGTON (AP) -New York Mets first baseman Damion Easley left Saturday night's game against the Washington Nationals in the sixth inning with a left ankle injury.
Easley had singled to left to lead off the sixth, but pulled up going in to second base when Washington pitcher John Lannan uncorked a wild pitch on a 1-1 offering to Lastings Milledge. Easley appeared to roll his ankle before reaching second and dropped to the ground after stumbling over the base.
Easley was helped from the field, unable to put any weight on his left leg. He was replaced by pinch-runner Shawn Green, who advanced to third on a passed ball and scored on Mike DiFelice's double to left for a 5-2 Mets lead.
Easley was playing first in place of Carlos Delgado, who has not started the past three games because of a hyperextended left knee.
