SEATTLE (AP) -Mariners' left fielder Raul Ibanez was pulled in the fifth inning on Saturday night against Cincinnati after feeling tightness in his right hamstring.
Ibanez grimaced after trying to beat out a double play in the third inning. He remained in the game, but was lifted in the bottom of the fifth when Jason Ellison pinch hit. Ellison replaced Ibanez in the field in the sixth.
The team said Ibanez would be re-examined on Sunday.
Ibanez hit the fourth grand slam of his career in the first inning on Saturday off Cincinnati starter Kyle Lohse. It was his sixth homer of the season.
