ARLINGTON (AP) – Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton left Sunday night’s game against Tampa Bay with stiffness in his back.

Hamilton, the American League’s home run leader with nine, is day-to-day. He got his AL-leading 25th RBI on a single to center field in the first inning, scoring Elvis Andrus.

In the same inning, Hamilton, who also leads the league in total bases and slugging percentage, appeared to be injured running from first to second on a forceout. He was slow to come out to the field for the second inning and was taken out of the game before the start of the third.

Hamilton was replaced in the lineup by David Murphy.
