Kendrick exits game with stiff hamstring

SEATTLE -- Angels second baseman Howard Kendrick exited Thursday's loss to the Mariners in the ninth inning because of stiffness in his right hamstring. Kendrick, playing left field in the game, went 3-for-4 with a home run but told manager Mike Scioscia that he felt tightness in the area early in the game and tried to play through it.

In the ninth inning, Kendrick was thrown out trying to steal second base and left the game after reporting further soreness.

Scioscia said the team didn't know the extent of the injury and would re-evaluate Kendrick prior to Friday's home game against Atlanta.
