Dodgers' Kendrick leaves game with hamstring injury

PITTSBURGH (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers second baseman Howie Kendrick had to leave Sunday night's game with the Pittsburgh when he strained his left hamstring running out an infield hit in the fifth inning.

Kendrick reached on the infield single leading off the inning. He was replaced by pinch-runner Kike Hernandez, who remained in the game to play second base.

Kendrick was 2 for 3 Sunday, giving him five consecutive multi-hit games. He is 11 for 23 (.478) during that streak.
