[3/26/2017] Ginjiro Sumitani leaves game after twisting ankle

Ginjiro Sumitani hit a double during his first at bat in the third inning of today’s exhibition game against the Yokohama Bay Stars. He made his way over to third base on a sac bunt, but tumbled over when his foot got stuck in the dirt and lightly twisted his left ankle. He still reached third safely and was replaced by a pinch-runner as a precaution.
