NEW YORK -- Second baseman Luis Castillo left the New York Mets' game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday night with a sprained left ankle after he slipped and fell in the dugout.

Castillo grounded out leading off the seventh and was on his way back to the bench when he tumbled down the dugout steps and had to be helped up the tunnel by some teammates.

Angel Berroa came in to play shortstop in the top of the eighth and Alex Cora moved to second to replace Castillo, who went 1 for 3 and scored a run.
