Nationals reliever Kintzler leaves with apparent injury
Kintzler faced three batters after entering with one out in the eighth, hitting Gorkys Hernandez with a pitch before getting Alen Hanson to fly out. Buster Posey then doubled to right, and Washington manager Dave Martinez and a team athletic trainer quickly went to the mound.
Closer Sean Doolittle recorded the final out of the inning after replacing Kintzler, an All-Star selection last year with Minnesota who is 1-2 with a 4.45 ERA in 31 appearances this season.
