ST. LOUIS (AP) -Los Angeles Angels outfielder Garret Anderson left the game against the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday night because of tightness in his right leg.
Anderson, who had a two-run home run and a single in three at-bats, was pulled entering the bottom of the fifth inning. He singled with one out in the top of inning and reached second without any obvious signs of pain but did not take the field when the Cardinals came to bat.
Reggie Willits entered in his place.
A tear in his right hip flexor tendon forced Anderson on the 15-day disabled list May 4. He returned to the lineup on June 3 and was 7-for-24 before leaving the game Saturday. There was no immediate word if the injuries are related.
Anderson is batting .269 with three home runs and 14 RBIs.
