BJ Rains is reporting Lance Berkman's wrist x-rays are negative and is scheduled to see a doctor tomorrow. Berkman left tonight's game after a diving catch on a Chris Johnson fly ball from which he was slow to get up.

Lance is having a decent season, hitting .352/.455/.688 with 11 home runs. Check out this graphical analysis I created just the other day over at Beyond the Box Score, which shows that his slugging is up and his strikeouts are down.

Matt Holliday also left tonight's game with what the team called tightness in his left quadriceps. No news yet how serious it is for Matt, but we'll update as it becomes available.
