SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki has injured his left leg after teammate Dexter Fowler fouled a ball that hit him in the dugout during the eighth inning of Monday night's game with the San Francisco Giants.

After being examined by athletic trainer Keith Dugger, Tulowitzki stayed in the game and took his turn at-bat. He reached on an infield single against Javier Lopez but hobbled to the base, clearly in pain. Manager Jim Tracy and Dugger hustled out to first and Tulowitzki was lifted for pinch-runner Chris Nelson.

The game was tied 1-1.
