Troy Tulowitzki Injury: Shortstop Leaves Game With Hurt Right Quad

For the second day in a row, the Colorado Rockies have lost another star player during a game. This time shortstop Troy Tulowitzki left Monday's game with a right quad injury during the top of the fourth inning. He hit into an inning-ending double play and when he was several feet away from first base it was clear that he felt something bothering him.

Milling around first base, Tulowitzki started holding his quad and that's when the trainers came out. He left the game and was replaced by Jonathan Herrera, who is now the team's clean up hitter. No word yet has trickled out yet on the extent of the injury.

On Sunday afternoon, the Rockies lost Carlos Gonazalez after he hurt his right wrist on a collision with the center field wall. While x-rays showed it was a contusion, Gonzalez sat out Monday's game because he could  not grip a bat. It is unknown when he will return.

The Rockies are losing, 2-1, through four innings.
