DENVER (AP) - Colorado Rockies left-hander Alan Embree had to be
taken off the field on a cart after being hit in the right leg by a line drive.

Atlanta's Martin Prado hit a 3-2 fastball from Embree back up the middle in the seventh inning Friday night. The ball ricocheted off Embree's right shin to third baseman Ian Stewart.

Embree was driven off the field and replaced by right-hander Matt Daley.

Embree started the seventh inning in relief of starter Ubaldo Jimenez, who left the game after a 52-minute rain delay.
