Jones strains left hamstring, leaves game

POSTED: July 27, 2008 5:01 a.m.

MIAMI — Braves slugger Chipper Jones strained his left hamstring running out a ground ball in the fourth inning against Florida and left the game Wednesday night.

The third baseman grabbed the back of his thigh after crossing first base. A trainer came out to check on him and, after about a minute, Jones limped slowly to the dugout.

He was 0-for-2 with an RBI and a walk, dropping his major league-leading average to .369. The Braves are off Thursday, and they said Jones will be re-evaluated Friday before the start of a three-game series at Philadelphia.

Jones has been hampered by right thigh, groin and back injuries this season, but hasn't been on the disabled list. The Braves are struggling to stay in the NL East race, and they're 2-10 in games he has missed.

He has 18 homers and 55 RBIs, and came into the game second in the majors in on-base percentage and fourth in slugging.
