Phils' Dobbs injured on diving stop
MIAMI -- In the seventh inning of Sunday's game against the Marlins, Phillies third baseman Greg Dobbs dove to his right, stabbed a scorcher and stood near third base in pain.
A few minutes later, Dobbs hobbled off the field and appeared to be favoring his right ankle. No immediate announcement was made regarding the injury.
Dobbs' departure ended up working out for Philadelphia, as Pedro Feliz fielded a grounder for the final out of the inning to snuff out a bases-loaded threat, then smacked a two-run home run in the eighth to give the Phils a 5-2 lead.
