WASHINGTON (AP) Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant exited Wednesday's game against the Washington Nationals in the bottom of the sixth inning with an apparent right ankle injury.

Bryant, steps away from the third base bag in foul territory, camped under a pop-up off the bat of Nationals catcher Matt Wieters. He drifted slightly back toward the third base line when making the catch. In the process, Bryant clipped the base with his right foot.

He immediately grimaced and began walking gingerly. The Cubs' training staff tended to Bryant and helped him off the field. Jeimer Candelario replaced the Cubs second-place hitter with two outs in the inning and Chicago trailing 7-3.
