Dodgers' Ramirez leaves Game 4

Los Angeles, CA ( - Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez appeared in pain throughout Game 4 of the National League Championship Series and exited in the seventh inning.

Ramirez played through a hairline fracture in his rib in Game 3 Monday and went 2-for-4 with an RBI in leading the Dodgers to their first win in the series.

He labored throughout Tuesday's contest, however, and struck out three times before being replaced by Nick Punto in the top of the seventh.

Ramirez did not play in Game 2 after getting hit in the ribs by a pitch in the series opener.
