Berkman has a little knee scare

Which, in turn, gives us palpitations. Berkman hyperextended his knee in the 8th inning of G18 today.

"Really, it's because I don't have as much strength in that quad as I do in the other one. It's no big deal. It's not any kind of lingering thing. It really scared me more than anything else. It really wasn't that painful, but I wanted to be careful running down the line until I was sure everything was OK."

"He's fine. He kind of stumbled [out of the box] because he felt like he might have [hyperextended the knee], but after he got back to the dugout he felt he was fine, and he says he's fine now."
