PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Mets starter Jorge Sosa left Saturday's game against the Phillies after straining his left hamstring running to first base in the sixth inning.
Sosa ran hard down the line after bunting and barely beat the relay throw to first to avoid a double play. He immediately grabbed his leg and briefly sat on the ground before he was helped off the field.
The right-hander had a 5-3 lead when he came out. Sosa has pitched well in his first season with the Mets after a terrible year last season with Atlanta and St. Louis.
