Drew suffers ankle injury that could put him out for the seasonPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona shortstop Stephen Drew and Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez were injured moments apart in the bottom of the fourth inning Wednesday night.
Drew hurt his right ankle sliding into home plate trying to score from second on Chris Young's base hit to left field. Drew, out on the play, did not put any weight on his right foot as he was helped from the field by trainers.
Moments later, Gomez made a brilliant catch of Ryan Roberts' short flyball but immediately grabbed his shoulder or collar bone area.
While Drew is the everyday shortstop for Arizona, Gomez is the backup to regular center fielder Nyjer Morgan.
