Eyre leaves game with ankle injury
The ball scooted past Eyre for an infield single Sunday night as he crumbled to the grass in front of the mound during Game 3 of the division series. The lefty got up and gingerly walked off the field.
He was replaced by right-hander Ryan Madson, who inherited runners at first and third base with none out.
Eyre entered the game in the bottom of the sixth and retired pinch-hitter Seth Smith.
