ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Rays center fielder B.J. Upton left Tuesday night's game against Detroit with a sprained left ankle.

Upton was hurt while moving in on Will Rhymes' single with one out in the first. After spending two minutes on the turf, Upton was able to walk off the field.

The Rays said Upton is day to day.

Rhymes' first major league hit, and the first Detroit hit of the game, came one day after the Tigers were no-hit in a 5-0 loss to Tampa Bay right-hander Matt Garza.
