CHICAGO (AP) _ Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Chan Ho Park left Friday's game against the Chicago Cubs with a lower back strain.

He'll be re-evaluated Saturday and is listed as day to day.

Park cruised through six innings, allowing only three hits and striking out eight. But after giving up singles to Bill Mueller and Sammy Sosa, his first two batters in the seventh inning, Park threw a pitch in the dirt to Rondell White and then stood up, walking gingerly around the mound.

Park then bent over, and stayed that way as several Dodgers came out to the mound. He was bent over for several minutes before he walked slowly off the field, a trainer standing close by.

Park gave up two runs and five hits in six-plus innings. He struck out eight and walked none.
