Kearns lifted with hamstring ailment
MIAMI — Austin Kearns, who has made an impact in a reserve role, was removed from Tuesday’s game in the top of the fourth inning due to a tight right hamstring.
Kearns’ status is day to day.
The 32-year-old outfielder tweaked his leg while scoring from first on Giancarlo Stanton’s RBI double in the third inning. In the fourth inning, Colorado’s Michael Cuddyer doubled to left. Kearns had a tough time moving to the ball.
Miami substituted Chris Coghlan in left field for Kearns, who had a walk, single and run scored.
