Just a half-inning after belting a three-run homer, Astros left fielder Carlos Lee was forced to leave the game after a jarring collision with shortstop Angel Sanchez in shallow left field. Lee has had X-Rays and a CT scan. X-Rays revealed no fractures in his chest or ribcage, but the CT scan results are still pending.

Reports have Sanchez's leg hitting Lee in the mid-section and Lee laying on the ground writhing in pain for several minutes. He wasn't even able to leave under his own power, as a cart came out to get him.

Lee, 34, is off to a slow start for the Astros this season but was having a big day before the injury. There's a gaping hole in the middle of the batting order if he's gone for any length of time.
