• Cardinals lose Craig to sprained left foot

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Sep 6, 2013
    Cardinals first baseman Allen Craig sprained his left foot while rounding first base and left the game in the fourth inning on Wednesday night. Louis first baseman Allen Craig has a sprained left foot but no fracture, a big relief for a Cardinals team that feared it had lost its cleanup hitter for the rest of the season. Louis Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak said he'd be happy if Allen Craig could return for the postseason. Craig twisted his foot and ankle while rounding the base and fell hard, allowing the Reds to retrieve the ball and tag him out while he was still down. He walked off slowly. Craig was credited with an infield single on a chopper that Cincinnati first baseman Joey Votto fielded with a diving stop, but then threw over the head of pitcher Bronson Arroyo and into foul territory in front of the first-base dugout. Matt Carpenter's sixth-inning double on Wednesday night against the Reds in Cincinnati was his 46th of the season, moving him into a four-way tie for the most doubles in franchise history by a player who primarily plays second base.
