SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) _ San Francisco Giants closer Robb Nen injured his ankle covering first base and left Tuesday’s game against Anaheim in the ninth inning.

He caught his spike in the grass on the way to the bag and hobbled off the field under his own power.

His left ankle was heavily wrapped, iced and placed in a splint. He was taken to a hospital for X-rays and an MRI.

``We’ve just got to wait and see,″ Giants manager Dusty Baker said.

An Angels split squad scored four runs against Nen in the top of the ninth and won 11-10. Nen (1-1) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk in seven batters.
