The Colorado Rockies beat the San Francisco Giants, 5-4, on Friday night, but that was not the main story from Coors Field. Rockies outfielder David Dahl left the game in the top of the sixth inning with a right leg injury that looked quite serious. As of the writing of this recap, there was no further word on Dahl’s injury.
Only a few weeks removed from his first All-Star Game appearance, Rockies outfielder David Dahl was carted off the field Friday with what looked like a serious ankle injury:

UPDATE: Dahl’s injury was an ankle sprain, according to Rockies manager Bud Black:

RyMac goes deep
On a brighter note, Rockies second baseman Ryan McMahon continues his strong second half of the season with a two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game at 4-4:

McMahon was one of the Rockies few bright spots in July, hitting .313/.371/.550 with four home runs and 16 RBI in 24 games, and started August strong, going 3-for-4 Friday with the two-run homer and a pair of runs scored.
McMahon wasn’t the only Rockies middle infielder to go deep Friday night, as Trevor Story hit his first home run since July 17 against Giants starter Shaun Anderson:
