ph_204020Lance Berkman tried to convince Joe Girardi to keep him in the game this afternoon, but the Yankees played it safe and got their designated hitter out of there after he rolled his right ankle on a close play at first base in the fifth inning.

“I think it was precaution,” Berkman said. “We’ll see how it feels. It started to swell a little bit, so we’ll see how it feels in the morning.”

Girardi called Berkman’s injury a “jammed” ankle and called him day-to-day. Berkman said he rolled it on the play, beginning when he stepped on pitcher Bryan Bullington’s foot and continuing as Berkman’s foot slid off the edge of the base.

“I think it’s just more painful than anything else,” he said. “I don’t think there’s anything major wrong. I think I just twisted it when I hit the bag there.”
