Astros First Baseman Leaves Game With Knee And Head Injury

He's been a big part of the team during their 2022 World Series run.

Houston Astros Yuli Gurriel left Game 5 of the World Series Thursday against the Philadelphia Phillies with right knee discomfort. He was also kneed in the head.

Gurriel appeared to extend his knee after colliding with Phillies Rhys Hoskins during a rundown late in the game. He also took a painful-looking shot to the head from the knee of Hoskins. The thirty-eight-year-old was replaced by Trey Mancini.
Gurriel has been fantastic for the Astros this postseason, slashing .347/.360/.490, with two home runs and four RBIs, only striking out once. 

The Astros and Phillies are off Friday before playing in Houston on Saturday, so the Astros will hope Gurriel is feeling well enough to take the field in a possible series-clinching Game 6.
