After the Astros had taken a 2-1 lead against the Marlins in the 7th inning, Hanley Ramirez had to be carried off of the field.  With Bill Hall on first and Chris Johnson on second, T.R. Towels hit a ground ball up the middle that Omar Infate was barley able to get to.  Infante was able to get the ball to Hanley to get the out at second but Hanley was not in time to get the out at first.  While throwing to 1st, Bill Hall slid hard into Hanley and Hanley went down in pain.  Hanley was rolling on the ground in pain until the trainers came out, and remained on the ground until being carried off the field putting no weight onto his right leg.  Hanley then hopped from the dugout to the locker room.  Donnie Murphy moved over the shortstop and Greg Dobbs replaced him in the batting order, getting another hit in the following inning.

GOOD NEWS: Just reported that Hanley just has a left leg contusion and is day-to-day.  Injury looked a lot worse than this, so this is very good news for Marlins Nation.
