He left for a pinch runner in the late innings. I don't think it was an injury--they just wanted more speed on the basepaths to get the go-ahead run. Dumb strategy in my books.

You're correct (on both the non-injury and dumb strategy ;)).

Though Carroll (the pinch runner for Helton) made a great barehanded play in the bottom of the 11th inning that I doubt Atkins would have made.
