The Blue Jays' Jose Reyes drove in a pair of runs before getting carted off in the sixth inning with a sprained left ankle, and Toronto beat the Kansas City Royals 8-4 on Friday night.
Reyes was attempting to steal second when he started his slide late. The four-time All-Star's left ankle twisted awkwardly beneath him as he slid over the bag, and trainers from both teams ran out to help as Reyes screamed in pain on the infield dirt.
He was carted off the field and taken to a hospital for an MRI. The results were not immediately known and it was uncertain how long Reyes will be out.
Toronto's J.A. Happ (2-0), the only Blue Jays starter to win this season, gave up three runs on 41 pitches in the first inning.
Aaron Loup pitched the final three innings for his first career save.
Adam Lind and Emilio Bonifacio also drove in two runs each for the Blue Jays, who hammered the Royals' Luis Mendoza (0-1) for eight runs - seven of them earned - in just 5 2-3 innings.
