Murphy suffers concussion on Utley's slide
PHILADELPHIA -- Donnie Murphy left in the seventh inning of Wednesday's 3-1 loss with a concussion, manager Ozzie Guillen said.

The Marlins third baseman was inadvertently hit on the head on a slide by Philadelphia's Chase Utley in the sixth inning. The injury occurred when John Mayberry Jr. hit his game-tying RBI single to center field and Utley went from first to third. On his slide into third, it appeared as if Utley's right leg popped up and accidentally made contact with Murphy.

Murphy flied out to right field in the seventh before he was replaced by Greg Dobbs to start the bottom half of the inning.

"We've got to wait and see tomorrow about it," Guillen said. "I talked to the trainer, and he said it might take a couple days. Hopefully days not weeks. We will wait to see what they have tomorrow and wait to see how he feels Friday."
