Prado OK after fouling ball off toe

DENVER -- Marlins third baseman Martin Prado exited Sunday's 10-7 win over the the Rockies after fouling a ball off a toe on his left foot in the sixth inning.

Prado was attended to by trainers before the decision was made to remove him and he walked gingerly to the dugout without assistance. Marlins manager Don Mattingly said there was no break and X-rays came back negative.

"We're hoping it's just sore and that tomorrow he'll be ready," Mattingly said. "A lot of times you see a guy bounce back right away and a lot of times you don't see a guy come out of the game."

Prado's two-run double

Prado, who was facing left-hander Chris Rusin, left the game with a 3-2 count and the Marlins holding an 8-6 lead. Miguel Rojas pinch-hit for him and reached on a fielding error by third baseman Nolan Arenado.

Prado was 3-for-3 with a two-run double and two runs scored, raising his season average to .323.
