Houston - Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones left Tuesday's game against Houston in the bottom of the sixth with an apparent leg injury.

Jones was hurt making a spectacular defensive play to throw out Hunter Pence leading off the inning. Pence hit a chopper down the line that was fielded by Jones, whose momentum carried him into foul territory. He threw across his body and appeared to land awkwardly on his left leg.

Jones stayed down on the ground for a few moments before limping off the field with the team trainer.

Brooks Conrad replaced Jones at third base.
