WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Nationals starter Anibal Sanchez left in the second inning of Thursday’s 7-6 win over the New York Mets because of left hamstring soreness.
After delivering ball four to Brandon Nimmo with one out, Sanchez walked to the rear of the mound. Manager Dave Martinez and the trainer came out and Sanchez soon departed.
Sanchez (0-6) was staked to a 4-0 lead. He was looking to avoid becoming the first Nationals pitcher to start 0-7 since Jason Marquis in 2010.
