Buster Posey helped off field after collision at Home Plate

Buster Posey-Scott Cousins/Courtesy:
This will make a San Francisco Giants fan cringe. Star catcher Buster Posey had to be helped off the field last night during their game with the Florida Marlins after a nasty collision at home plate.

Posey was blocking the plate in the top of the 12th inning in a tie game. Scott Cousins of the Marlins was trying to score from 3rd on a short fly ball to right field. The two collided, the ball popped loose and Cousins scored. Posey had to be carried off after what appeared to be an injury to his left ankle.

Florida ended up winning the game 7-6.

Unfortunately, unlike the NBA and NHL, Major League Baseball tries their best to not let the Internets have their video, so we don't have any video to show or link to. does give us some reaction though:
