Cards Get Good News on First Baseman 9/6/13
CINCINNATI - St. Louis first baseman Allen Craig has a sprained left foot but no fracture. That's a big relief for a Cardinals team that feared it had lost its cleanup hitter for the rest of the season. Craig hurt his foot while rounding first base in Wednesday night's 16-inning win Cincinnati. He stayed on the ground for a long time and walked off gingerly.
X-rays in Cincinnati were inconclusive. He was sent back to St. Louis for an MRI and more X-rays that indicated nothing was broken.
