Angels shortstop Erick Aybar has left Los Angeles' game against Oakland in the third inning with a bruised left heel. Erick Aybar's left heel was feeling very sore prior to Wednesday's game, with Angels manager Mike Scioscia proclaiming that he wouldn't have been able to play if it was the seventh game of the World Series and Aybar himself admitting that he was worried it could be a prolonged injury. Aybar jammed his left foot into the base while running out his leadoff single. The Angels' No. 2 hitter hurt himself while lunging at first base to beat out an infield single to lead off the third inning Tuesday night, when his left heel landed awkwardly on the front part of the bag and prompted him to exit the game in pain. "We're just hopeful it's something that'll calm down here in the next couple days and we can get a read on it, but right now it's very sore."
