Cubs SS Castro leaves with leg injury

CHICAGO (AP) Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro left Tuesday night's game against Milwaukee after injuring his left leg sliding home in the first inning.

Castro scored on a single by Jorge Soler, but rolled over his lower left leg in an awkward slide. The three-time All-Star stayed on the ground in pain for a few minutes before being helped to his feet by Chicago's training staff.

Castro later walked off the field with assistance from a team trainer.
