ATLANTA (AP) -Chipper Jones irritated his strained right quadriceps while running out a double and left the Atlanta Braves' game against Los Angeles on Sunday.
Jones tweaked his right quad on April 9 at Colorado and felt more soreness as the Braves' road trip continued in Washington.
Still, Jones continued to play and extended his hitting streak to 12 games with a third-inning single before adding a fifth-inning double off the right-field wall. Jones slid late into second base and was slow to return to his feet.
Jones remained in the game through the inning but was replaced by Martin Prado to start the sixth.
There was no immediate word on Jones' status.
