Rockies outfielder Brenton Doyle was carted off the field during Thursday’s game against the Marlins after he crashed into the Coors Field wall while trying to track down a fly ball.
The play came in the ninth inning of Colorado’s 7–6 win over Miami. With one on and one out, Marlins designated hitter Jorge Soler hit a ball to deep center field. Doyle gave chase in a full sprint and crashed into the wall. The ball careened off his glove into the stands for a two-run home run, and Doyle remained on the field in apparent pain.
Doyle’s appeared to suffer an injury to his right knee, which took the brunt of the collision with the wall. The situation was made worse by an awkward landing on the same leg.

Doyle was diagnosed with a knee contusion after the game.
“It’s going to take a few days to feel better. … I’m happy we ended up winning the ballgame,” he told reporters after the Rockies blew a four-run lead in the ninth.
Colorado manager Bud Black said Doyle is not expected to be placed on the injured list.
