Troy Tulowitzki left last night’s game after being nailed in the leg with a foul ball

Troy Tulowitzki is listed as day-to-day after getting smacked in the leg with a Dexter Fowler foul ball as he stood on the top step of the dugout last night:

“I had no chance,” said Tulowitzki, who briefly tried to remain the game before being replaced for a pinch runner after reaching base on a one-out infield single in the same inning he was hit. “Usually when a ball’s hit like that, it’s kind of off the end or jammed or something like that. That was a line drive. I really don’t even know how it’s possible but it happened to hit. Just bad luck.”

Actually, good luck. His manager said that it just missed hitting his kneecap.  And after what happened to Jeff Niemann last night, it was good fortune that kept Tulowitzki from something far worse than what he sustained.
