Rockies LF Parra leaves game against Yankees with leg injury

DENVER (AP) Colorado Rockies left fielder Gerardo Parra left Tuesday's game against the New York Yankees in the third inning with an injured left leg.

Parra was hurt on a flyout by Jacoby Ellsbury leading off the top of the third. As Parra settled under the shallow fly, shortstop Trevor Story made a diving attempt at the ball and rolled over Parra's lower left leg.

Parra slammed the outfield grass with his right hand and the team trainers came out to him. He was helped onto a cart and taken off the field.

Parra is hitting .263 with five home runs and 27 RBIs in his first season with Colorado.
