Astros | Niekro injured, leaves game
The Houston Chronicle reports Houston Astros 1B Lance Niekro (foot) was forced to leave the March 5 game after fouling a ball off his right foot in the first inning. Niekro is hopeful the injury won't keep him out long. "It's on a weird spot on the instep," he said. "It started bruising and swelling up and tightening up. It's uncomfortable, but I think it will be all right. Hopefully it's one of those that swells up but the next day feels better."
