Hamilton leaves Rangers game with heel injury

March 14, 2012

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Texas Rangers left fielder Josh Hamilton has left the game against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday because of a jammed right heel.

Hamilton hurt his foot in the top of the second inning when he stopped himself after fielding a double down the line by Todd Helton. He finished the inning then went to the clubhouse for treatment.

Hamilton flew out to left-center in the first inning and is 3 for 19 (.136) this spring. He returned to left field after serving as the team's designated hitter Tuesday.
