Starlin Castro leaves with leg injury

CHICAGO – Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro left Tuesday’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a sprained left ankle after he slid into home plate awkwardly in the bottom of the first inning, the team announced. Castro easily made it home from second on Jorge Soler’s RBI single to left, but as he slid, his cleat got caught in the dirt surrounding home plate, and his left leg wasn’t able to fully extend. He was attended to by the trainer and walked off under his own power before leaving the game.

Four of those bids persisted into the seventh inning, and two into the eighth.
