Phillies C Schneider leaves game with ankle injury

Philadelphia Phillies catcher Brian Schneider was forced to leave Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays with a sprained right ankle after a collision at home plate.

In the sixth inning with runners on first and second, Rays second baseman Brooks Conrad hit a double off the wall in right-center field.

Schneider was set up in front of the plate as he waited for the throw home while Sean Rodriguez was attempting to score from first base, and Rodriguez collided with him.

Schneider's ankle twisted under him as he tumbled backwards and he tried to stay in the game, but he was forced to take himself out and was replaced by Carlos Ruiz.
