Scott has knee contusion (with Showalter quote)

Luke Scott left tonight's game with a bruised right knee. He'll be reevaluated tomorrow.

Scott slammed against the fence while robbing Matt Holliday of a home run with two outs in the top of the ninth inning. He limped back to the dugout and wasn't able to put a lot of weight on the knee.

Showalter told reporters after the Orioles' 6-2 loss to the Cardinals that Scott didn't sustain any structural damage.

Scott wanted to bat in the bottom of the ninth, but Showalter sent Blake Davis to the plate.

"Luke banged into some pipe there that kind of holds the padding up," Showalter said. "It's nothing structural with the knee other than banging it against the wall, but we'll look at it again tomorrow. He wasn't able to put a lot of weight on it up the runway there, but he wanted to hit."
