DETROIT (AP) — Texas center fielder Daniel Robertson has left Thursday’s game against Detroit after colliding with right fielder Alex Rios while trying to make a diving catch in the third inning.

Ian Kinsler of the Tigers lifted a flyball to shallow right-center, and Robertson came charging in before diving headfirst in an attempt to make the play. Rios, meanwhile, came sliding in from the right, and the two collided on the ground. Neither was able to catch the ball, and Kinsler ended up on second.

Robertson remained down for a short while, and he eventually walked off the field and was replaced by Leonys Martin in center.
