Harley Lail injured NCAA regional play

Harley Lail, right field for the University of South Carolina baseball team, was injured in a NCAA Baseball World Series regional game Friday in Raleigh.

South Carolina right fielder Harvey Lail, who was injured on Friday when he slid into the fence for a foul ball, didn't start for first time in 60 games. Andrew Crisp took Lail's place in the outfield and the No. 8 spot in the lineup. Lail is listed as day-to-day with a bruised knee.

"He might be able to play," (USC Coach Ray) Tanner said. "He surprisingly was out for infield tonight. I didn't expect to see him in infield after we started. He wasn't 100 percent -- it was a little bit tight -- but he doesn't have anything broken. He may try to play tomorrow. We'll just have to wait and see."
