Dioner Navarro had to be carted off the field in the seventh inning after a collision at the plate with Chase Utley.With Utley on second, Kevin Frandsen lined a single to right field in just about perfect position for Cole Gillespie to field the ball on a couple of hops and fire a laser home to Navarro all in stride. Utley, who just signed a reported two-year, $27-million extension with the Phillies, was cooked and could only half-slide half-barrel into Navarro.


It looked bad at the time; the way his leg rolled underneath him made it seem like Navarro suffered either a serious leg or ankle injury. X-rays were later negative, however, and the injury is being called a contusion.
