HOUSTON (AP) _ Texas Rangers catcher Ivan Rodriguez and third baseman Ken Caminiti each left Saturday’s game against the Houston Astros with leg injuries.
Caminiti pulled his left hamstring rounding first base after hitting a single in the seventh inning. He was thrown out limping into second base and was replaced by Scott Sheldon.
Rodriguez fell to the turf in the bottom of the seventh following a grounder hit by Craig Biggio. He was helped from the field and replaced by Marcus Jensen.
Trainers said Rodriguez was removed as a precautionary measure with tightness in his left hamstring.
