Turner only recently had returned from a sprained right ankle.
"It just cramped up," Turner said. "The top of the second inning -- I don't remember who was hitting -- he hit a groundball down the third-base line and it was foul. When I took my first step, I kind of felt it knot up a little bit. I came up to hit in the next inning. And I hit the groundball and I was going down the line and it just cramped up on me. I got out of there and got some treatment on it, and we'll see how it feels tomorrow.
"You know, I think it was a little tight from maybe compensating a little bit for my ankle. I don't know 100 percent. I would bet that has a little bit to do with it. It's not really sore to walk around or stretch or anything. It's more sore to touch. Like I said, when I pushed off is when I felt it. Hopefully I'll just get in and get all the treatment I need and take whatever pills they have and get this thing calmed down in a day or two."
