ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -Texas Rangers left fielder Frank Catalanotto left Wednesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox in the first inning because of a sore right groin.
Catalanotto had a leadoff double for the Rangers and scored on Michael Young's single. There was no indication then that Catalanotto was hurt, but he was replaced in the field in the top of the second.
David Murphy moved from right field to left, and Nelson Cruz entered the game in right and took over in the leadoff spot in the batting order.
The double extended Catalanotto's hitting streak to eight games. He is hitting .413 (26-for-63) in August to raise his average from .228 to a season-best .272.
