ATLANTA -- San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval left Monday night's game against the Atlanta Braves after fouling a ball off his right foot.

Sandoval fell to the ground in the batter's box in the first inning after the foul ball hit him below his shin guard. He remained in the game for the at-bat and reached first base on a fielder's choice.

Mike Fontenot replaced Sandoval at third base for the bottom of the first inning.

The Giants said X-rays on Sandoval's foot were negative.
