SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Washington Nationals first baseman Dmitri Young left Wednesday night's game against the Giants in the second inning because of tightness in his left hamstring.
Young, who signed a two-year contract extension with the Nationals in late July, apparently hurt himself while running out a routine grounder to shortstop in the first.
Young, hitting .333, is hitless in six at-bats since hitting a home run in the 10th inning of Monday night's 3-2 loss to San Francisco.
Robert Fick replaced Young in the lineup.
