ATLANTA (AP) — Chicago Cubs center fielder Jason Heyward had to leave a game against the Atlanta Braves after diving for a liner by Freddie Freeman .

Heyward went out with tightness in his right hamstring. The team said he is still being evaluated.

Heyward was able to walk off the field, getting a hug from former teammate Freeman on his way to the Cubs dugout .

Albert Amora Jr. took over in center.

Heyward failed to knock down Freeman’s hit, which rolled all the way to the wall for a two-run triple that tied Thursday night’s game at 3.
