Hawpe leaves game against Mets after 1st inning
Brad Hawpe left the Colorado Rockies’ game against the New York
Mets with tightness in his left quadriceps after hitting a two-run
double in the first inning Tuesday night.
Hawpe slowed down just before rounding first base after pulling
a pitch down the right-field line with two out. He was stranded at
second base and replaced by Ryan Spilborghs in right field to start
the second inning.
Hawpe is the second Rockies outfielder to leave a game with an
injury this season. Carlos Gonzalez strained his left hamstring
against San Diego on Sunday.
The Rockies said Hawpe is day to day.
