DENVER (AP) -San Diego right-hander Chris Young left the Padres' game against the Colorado Rockies with a strained abdominal muscle after warming up for the third inning Tuesday night.
Young threw two perfect innings and had tossed five warmups when manager Bud Black and trainer Todd Hutcheson were summoned to the mound. He threw two more warmups before walking to the dugout.
He was replaced by left-hander Justin Hampson.
The Padres said Young had a strained oblique muscle on his left side and was day-to-day.
Young, who leads the major leagues with a 1.82 ERA, threw 28 pitches and retired all six Rockies he faced. The 28-year-old had worked at least six innings in 10 of his last 11 starts. He had allowed only eight earned runs in that span.
