SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Padres closer Huston Street left San Diego's game against the Miami Marlins with a strain near his pitching shoulder Friday night after issuing a walk in the 10th inning.

The right-hander will undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of the injury.

"I don't think it's major," Street said. "It's not in my shoulder. It's more in my lat, up in the armpit. I think that's a positive sign."

Street entered at the start of the 10th inning and retired his first two batters before walking pinch-hitter Logan Morrison. Padres manager Bud Black and assistant trainer Paul Navarro went out to the mound and, after a brief discussion, Street left the game. He was replaced by Brad Brach.

Miami won 9-8 in 12 innings.
