“I think he’s do­ing fine,” said man­ager Joe Mad­don. “... I don’t have any fi­nal con­clu­sions but I think we re­ally kind of dodged the bul­let right there.” Bryant dou­bled to cen­tre field off R.A. Dickey in the first in­ning. With two outs, Bryant tried to ad­vance to third base on a pitch in the dirt. He slid head-first into third base but was thrown out by catcher Tyler Flow­ers.

Bryant re­mained face-down on the field for a few sec­onds be­fore ris­ing to his feet. He im­me­di­ately looked at his left hand.
