Buster Posey left the Giants' game against the Marlins Wednesday after a nasty collision at home plate.
With the game tied at six in the twelfth inning, Scott Cousins tagged from third on a shallow pop fly to Nate Schierholtz, whose throw short-hopped Posey.
Posey was unable to come up with the ball, and was immediately leveled by the speeding Cousins, whose hit twisted Posey's body over his left leg at an awkward angle.

Posey writhed in the dirt around homeplate as Bruce Bochy and trainers rushed out to his aid.
It appeared to be his left ankle that was injured, and after the medical staff did some preliminary tests on his leg, they helped Posey off the field and into the locker room.
Posey did not put any weight on his left leg as he was helped off the field.
Eli Whiteside replaced Posey in the game, and the Giants were unable to respond in the bottom of the frame, falling to the Marlins 7-6 in 12.

The Pac-12 schedule makers started the final nail in Cal’s Week 9 coffin. USC’s offense proceeded to drive it all the home.
Behind a career night for both Ronald Jones and Sam Darnold, the Trojans jumped out to a 28-10 halftime and ultimately cruised to a 45-24 win. Both Jones and Darnold set career highs on the night, the former with 223 yards rushing and the latter five touchdown passes.
Those two players were part of an offense that rolled up a season-high 629 yards of offense. It was the schedule, though, that saw a significant amount of the focus on the game, especially in the days leading up to it and the immediate aftermath.
Cal’s last game was Friday, Oct. 21. USC’s last game? Oct. 15, meaning the Bears, on five days rest, were facing a team coming off a bye, and facing them on the road no less.
“It’s one of those deals where you go, ‘How in the world could this ever happen? How could somebody let this happen?'” head coach Sonny Dykes said in the middle of the week. “It has been a disaster, it’s been a mess. … It’s incredibly hard on our kids.”
“We looked like a tired, beat-up football team. I think it’s a travesty whoever scheduled this game. I hope the Pac-12 doesn’t do that again to any other school. It’s not right for the kids.
“Everybody talks about student-athlete welfare, but they need to put their money where their mouth is.”
