Nationals 3B Yunel Escobar leaves game with wrist injury
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Nationals Third baseman Yunel Escobar, who has been bothered by a sore wrist for most of the season, left Wednesday's game in the second inning after re-injuring the wrist while attempting to make a check swing. 

Escobar attempted to hold up on an inside pitch but fell to the ground in obvious pain, with his bat flying in the air. After a several-minute delay, Escobar attempted to stay in, but walked directly off the field into the dugout after fouling the next pitch off and was replaced by Dan Uggla. 

Manager Matt Williams said X-rays were negative on Escobar, but that the third baseman would be getting more tests to determine if there was anything further. 

Escobar is hitting .322 in 83 games this season.
