Geoff Jenkins: day-to-day with mild concussion

Postby The Big Train » Sun Jun 04, 2006 10:33 pm
MILWAUKEE -- Brewers right fielder Geoff Jenkins remembers running for a foul ball, then being sprawled on the ground after running into first baseman Prince Fielder.

Jenkins is day-to-day with a mild concussion after his collision with Fielder, and the Brewers lost their eight straight game, 8-4 to the Washington Nationals on Sunday, to fall a season-worst five games under .500.

Both players were going after a foul pop by Brendan Harris in the fourth inning, and the burly Fielder never saw Jenkins as the right fielder plowed into him.

Jenkins appeared to hit his right shoulder into Fielder's chest and crumpled in a heap. Fielder, who didn't appear to be hurt on the play, was receiving treatment in the trainer's room and was unavailable for comment after the game.

"I'm a little woozy," Jenkins said. "It's just one of those freak plays. I just didn't see Prince coming. Two guys going hard for the ball and the next thing I knew I was on the ground."

Jenkins played defense for the rest of the inning but was relieved by Gabe Gross before his next at-bat. Gross hit a two-run homer in the eighth.

"I tried to shake it off, I just felt a little dizzy," Jenkins said. "I had a tough time getting my vision. I feel a little bit better now, we'll just see how it is tomorrow."
