San Diego Padres star third baseman Manny Machado left Sunday’s game against the Colorado Rockies after suffering an apparent left ankle injury while trying to beat out a groundball at first base.

Machado’s left leg appeared to land awkwardly on the bag in the top of the first inning on a groundout to Colorado pitcher Antonio Senzatela. After going down and grabbing his leg, he walked off the field with some help while putting limited weight on the ankle.

The five-time All-Star, who was replaced by Sergio Alcantara in the bottom of the first inning, is leading San Diego this season with a .329 batting average, 12 home runs and 46 RBIs.

The Padres entered Sunday half a game out of first place in the NL West at 41-26.
