“It kind of hit right in the wrong spot, or the right spot, however you want to say it,” Werth said. “It’s swollen, but that’s the price you pay. It was just one of those that kind of burned right away. Give it some time, and it’ll be alright.”

Rick Ankiel replaced Werth in center field for the final three innings. Werth went 1 for 4 with a double. In center field, he made a catch while running backward on what Manager Davey Johnson called the only hard-hit ball Ross Detwiler allowed in 7 1 / 3 shutout innings.
