OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Houston Astros bullpen coach Jeff Murphy sustained injuries to his left leg and knee when a protective screen fell on him before Wednesday's game against the Oakland Athletics.
Murphy was throwing batting practice when a heavy gust of wind blew the screen over, pinning Murphy's leg underneath. He pulled himself out from under the screen and tried to walk away but fell back to the ground and had to be helped off the field.
According to a team spokesman, Murphy pulled his left hamstring and a bruised the knee. He was not taken to a hospital.
