DENVER (AP) — Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Scott Kingery and left fielder Andrew McCutchen both left Friday night’s game at Colorado with injuries.

Kingery left midway through the fourth inning after straining his right hamstring. McCutchen came out in the sixth with what the team said was inflammation in his left knee.

McCutchen, aboard with a walk, came up sore after advancing to second on a single by Phil Gosselin. He was replaced by pinch-runner Aaron Altherr.

Kingery was injured running out an inning-ending fielder’s choice. He pulled up after running past first base and a trainer hustled out from the Phillies’ dugout to check on him. Kingery walked gingerly back to the dugout and was replaced in the field by Phil Gosselin.

Kingery had started the three previous games at shortstop in place of Jean Segura, who has been sidelined by strained left hamstring.

Manager Gabe Kapler said before the game that Segura was doing well and close to a return.
