PHILADELPHIA -- Giants second baseman Joe Panik left Tuesday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies in the second inning with a sprained right ankle.

Panik's playing status was initially deemed as day to day.

Panik hurt himself in the first inning as he tried to beat out a grounder to first baseman Ryan Howard, who couldn't field the ball cleanly but eventually fed it to pitcher Roberto Hernandez covering the bag. Hernandez barely beat Panik, who rolled his ankle as he stepped on the right edge of the base.

Panik jogged gingerly back to the dugout and ran at a similar pace when he took his position for the bottom of the first inning. One inning later, Ehire Adrianza replaced Panik at second.
