SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter left New York's game against the San Francisco Giants on Saturday with a slight strain of his left hip.
Jeter hurt himself on a double in the first inning but stayed in the game until being replaced in the eighth in a double-switch.
``It's no problem,'' he said. ``I wasn't moving around too well but that's it. I just stiffened up.''
Manager Joe Torre said Jeter would be questionable for Sunday's series finale but should have no problem returning to the lineup Tuesday in Baltimore.
``I think he's going to want to play,'' Torre said. ``But we have to do the smart thing. I don't know what that is. We'll find out tomorrow.''
Jeter went 2-for-5 with an RBI, extending his hitting streak to 17 games. He has also hit in 25 straight interleague games.
The Yankees lost the game 6-5 in 13 innings.
